I haven't been reading as much as I was during the winter months.  Even though hubby bought me a Kindle for Christmas and I have been downloading a bucket load of free books on it, I haven't been reading them.  I don't know what I think I am saving them for but I know that I will eventually get around to reading again.

Don't think I am not reading at all, though, I have been.  I have been reading books on diabetes, cooking books, self help books, and many others that I didn't feel that would interest anyone.  But, duh, they interest me so I should blog about them, right?  Not that anyone is out there reading my blog but it's a fun way to keep track of what I have been reading.

Well, the latest book I got from the library is on how to make concrete ornaments for the garden.  We are currently working on making a leaf bowls from rhubarb leaves.

We have our first one done and curing but we are not 100% happy with it, so we want to make another this weekend, if we have time.

If you have more rhubarb leaves than you know what to do with, try this fun project.  Warning: all the ingredients you have to buy 'add up' so if you decide to do it, make sure you get enough 'stuff' to make several for gifts!

Have fun and happy reading!!

Char, what did you learn about diabetes in your book?? I'm "pre-diabetic"......so unless I really smarten up, its just a matter of time. I love carbs, so that must change, right?? lucky for me, I love veggies too.
