It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Teaser Tuesday

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event.

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

--Grab your current read
--Let the book open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
--You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

"My sofa!" Sophie cried, ignoring the child who was covered from head to foot in Thai-curry-seafood-pasta. "Oh, my God! My sofa! My...sofa."

Half of her cream leather sofa was now a greenish color, and so were her two faux fur cushions, their once strokable softness now converted into punklike sticky spikes.

Izzy grinned at her. "Tea was all bleugh and yuck," she said reasonably, by way of explanation. "So look, I made a painting with it on the sofa!" Izzy clearly thought that the artwork was something that should impress and not depress Sophie. "Is there any ice cream please?" she asked.

pg 61, The Accidental Mother by Rowan Coleman

Sophie is a career woman all the way with the clothes and home showing her childless state, dry clean only & white, when she becomes an instant mother to a 3-year-old and a 6 1/2-year-old.

Wonderful teaser, I am right there! Reminds me of a friend of mine who once walked over a new cream carpet not realising he had tar on his boots ...
