Weekly Capture XVII

We spent this past week with one of my younger sisters keeping super busy, eating way too many treats, and trying our best to beat the heat. I pretty much start dying when the temperature goes above 80, and the boys seem to take after me (so much for their father's Caribbean genes). We survived though.

Quote from the boy
D: "What's *his* name?" (holding up a holy medal)
Me: "San Juan Diego."
D: "*That's* his name? That's a really weird name."

He then informed me he knew ALL his saints and proceeded to start listing them off.

Quote found
"Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world."
    Napoleon Bonaparte

Finished up three mysteries this week - only one was worth recommending: Stealing Mona Lisa by Carson Morton, a fun story of an excellent con job. I'm a huge fan of any good, and I mean seriously good, mystery, so if you know any, pray, do tell. I'm lacking in ideas right now.

Just more Zen. It's still on PBS's Masterpiece site, so if you like contemporary mystery or Rufus Sewell (or both), I'd recommend checking it out.

Yard Sale/Thrift finds
I figure I'll share a bit what I'm finding since yard saling seems to be a regular part of my life right now. One of the best things about summertime. This week we found a Fontanini St. Joseph - he was missing the rest of his Nativity trio, so we got him as a steal for only 10 cents. Dom was thrilled to have the exact Joseph that Mimi (my mama) has. We also found some games + puzzles for our collection - I'm always on the lookout for great additions. 50 cents each. Lastly, a thrift store find of a wooden play shielf, to be cleaned up and made the first piece of our dress-up collection (obviously just being started).
