For book club last month, we read The Great Gatsby and came dressed for the discussion. I think the book was chosen merely for the costume factor. Most of us found the book lacking in positive role models. We came away feeling sorry for the characters and their hollow, self centered lives. What we decided is that they really needed to get involved in some kind of charity work and get outside themselves! Anyways, this is my mom and I with our glamorous cigarettes....mom kept losing hers in the egg casserole! Isn't she adorable!?
I did get a bit of sewing in that I'll be able to share in the next week or so. We're going to be on break this coming week...we all need a chance to breathe and with all of our classes taking a break for Thanksgiving, we decided to do the same. I'm planning on doing some decorating for the holidays and catching up on some reading and scrapbooking! Hopefully it won't be a month before I'm back here...but in case it's not before Thursday - Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
