Update #1

It is 12:37pm and I've only finished one book. The Well by Mildred Taylor, it is a short book, only 92 pages. In the midst of trying to read this, I did laundry, went to a meeting and took my daughter to Basketball practice. I didn't even think I'd get that far. Taking a little break at the moment. Hope everyone is doing well.

The Well was a book my mother gave to my son years and years ago. It is about an African American family who has the only working well in town. All neighbors, black & white alike come to get water. But there is that one family that causes trouble, and they have to deal with them.

Next book I'll read is Crossing Over by Ruth Irene Garrett.

Not bad for everything else you have going on! I must admit that I put off laundry. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if that's a good thing or not...
