The Kit Runner and No Scrapbooking

Ok. I'm in reading mode. What happens when I'm reading? Absolutely nothing! I'm reading "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini. I've read about 3/4 of it. This book is extremely well written and a very good story. What I like about it, is that it is about an Afghani that comes to America, but leaves behind a terrible memory of a life altering decision he made as a child. He returns to Afghanistan to right this wrong. The book is about his journey.

I don't know much about Afghanistan, except what I see on the news. It is interesting to learn about this country from an insider's point of view. This is not a political book. It never gets political or religous. It is about the young man and his journey.

Aside from that, I didn't scrapbook because I couldn't put my book down. I will today as Michelle at CottageArts.net has released some new frame groupings, and I just have to play!!!

I also planted pansies and some mums in Gamecock garnet yesterday! That way I will have some pretty color over the winter. Although, my camellias will give me some lovely pink blossoms as well!
