Home from vacation and a great book!

Well, we arrived home and thankfully all of our flowers , herbs and veggies are still growing!! here is a glimpse of some of our flowers below! (along with Minkey and Zephir......I, Minkey, have sortof SORTOF taken over the blogs of Nannykim----for a bit ).
Above is Nannykim nearing the end of her vacation!! Notice her DARLIN new HAT! HA!
I just wanted to tell ya'll about a wonderful book that Nannykim finished reading here at home in her porch/laundry room!
It is a MUST for your summer reading list!! The title is very weird! The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society! By Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. It is on the New York Times Bestseller list and Nannykim and her hubby love this book!!!!! It takes place on the Guernsey Island in the English Channel right after World War II. It is full of humor, romance, and history--very easy and fun read and eye opening!!!
Unfortunately the oldest of the authors above has died! This was her first book and it is soooo wonderful and moving and delightful. I just hope her niece will carry on. Her niece does children's books but she helped with this one.

So please try to get it for your summer reading or get it from your library!! Nannykim, is a bit under the weather---possible an allergic reaction to mold spore from where they were vacationing (the cottage was musty and had some kind of problem ;-) )
Ps. The book was a gift from Nannykim's daughter who also loved the book!


  1. I keep hearing good things about that book -- it's on my TBR list.

    Glad you had a good vacation and hope you feel better soon!

  2. I have heard of that book and think I will read it
    sorry you are not feeling good
    that mold thing is nothing to take lightly
    take care and don't let those silly monkeys get in any trouble (o:

  3. I've heard of this interesting title - guess I'd better get it!

  4. I'm gonna take your advice and rent a copy of this book from the "liberry". I've heard good things about it. Happy June :)

  5. Yeah, I think I'm gonna give my brain a rest this summer and read something just for some frivolity..lol Loving the historic homes...I'd kill for one of them.
    Glad you had a wonderful time...you and all the other primates...lol

    Have a good one.


  6. I loved the "Potato Book", always forget the real title....
    It is one of my favorite fiction books. Normally I go for non fiction, but there was so much historical truth intertwined with the fictional story that it made for one exciting reading.
    I like your blog.
