Moving Books!

We are all set up to start moving things into the new addition today! Saturday Tim (DH) sprayed the final coat on the stain of the heated flooring and it is ready to be walked on.

I have lasagna in the oven and bread and tea and coffee ready for all helpers!

Come on over and move a few boxes and eat and talk.

We will have a great time and a "burden shared" and all that!

A burden shared is only half a trouble

I knew you cared, I knew you'd understand

A burden shared is only half a trouble

Joy that's shared is joy made double

Have you seen this book? It is one of the new books in the shop and came out in January. Publisher's Weekly said:
Between running her Manhattan yarn shop, Walker & Daughter, and raising her 12-year-old biracial daughter, Dakota, Georgia Walker has plenty on her plate in Jacobs's debut novel. But when Dakota's father reappears and a former friend contacts Georgia, Georgia's orderly existence begins to unravel. Her support system is her staff and the knitting club that meets at her store every Friday night, though each person has dramas of her own brewing. Jacobs surveys the knitters' histories... largely occupied by munching on baked goods, sipping coffee and watching the knitters size each other up. Club members' troubles don't intersect so much as build on common themes of domestic woes and betrayal. It takes a while, but when Jacobs, who worked at Redbook and Working Woman, hits her storytelling stride, poignant twists propel the plot and help the pacing find a pleasant rhythm. (Jan.)

Sound Good? Stop by and pick up a copy!

Here is a darling picture of my grandson Joey when he was just crawling and he got into some lovely white wool. Sure is a chip off the old block, isn't he??

Not that we are prejudiced or anything!

Well, see you real soon! Stop by; we would love to have you company and help!
