After the whirling of the feasts, time for a little break. And I think I really need it. My children and grand children who came for the Christmas holidays left, except one son who is staying another ten days. It's nice not to have the house empty all of a sudden. I will start my new quilting projects after his departure. Resting means reading to me. I read those two wonderful english books : "Wish her Safe at Home" of Rachel Waring in a French translation and "The Color of Milk" of Nell Leyshon in the original langage. I love English literature, ancient and contemporary. The second book is my favorite. It's a long time I haven't read such an impressive story and I recommend it to everybody. It was a nice surprise to "fall" on such a good book as I bought it for the cover page, I loved the picture! You can see what it is about on the back of the book. Really one of the best books I read recently!
