Continuing to work on these blocks.
I've been reading like a maniac again. Two favorites in the recent batch of mysteries: As the Crow Flies, a Sheriff Longmire mystery by Craig Johnson and The First Rule of Ten a mystery about an ex-monk who joined the LAPD and has recently resigned to become a private investigator-- by Gay Hendricks and Tinker Lindsay. Both were great reads. I've just posted a review of As the Crow Flies on my book blog and The Rule of Ten is scheduled for next week.
Our friend Teresa has been busy for the last few weeks preparing for the Highland Blooms Garden Tour which was held this past weekend. The Highland area in Shreveport is an older neighborhood with many Craftsman-style homes, and complete with an old-fashioned/quirky/creative atmosphere. Teresa and Ricky have been active for several years with the Highland Restoration Association for several years, and Teresa is the current president of the association that seeks to restore and revitalize the area.
Since I was unable to attend the Garden Tour, I've enjoyed seeing the pictures Teresa posted on her blog, Views from My Highland Cottage. Stop by and visit!
