It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/20/2021 #imwayr

It's early Monday morning and I'm sitting here in my quiet kitchen, with the windows open, delighting in the sound of falling rain. 🌧️ Weather.com currently says: "Expect occasional rain to continue for the next several hours." Ahhh, music to my ears! 🎵 We've been hovering in the 90s much of this month, just bordering … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/20/2021 #imwayr

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/6/2021 #imwayr

Do you have any big Labor Day plans? We're spending the day playing family board games, going swimming, and then later this evening we hope to watch a movie all snuggled up on our couches. My father-in-law passed on Saturday. While the last year had been particularly rough on him, and we knew we didn't … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/6/2021 #imwayr

#MustReadin2021 8/31/21

It's time for a #MustReadin2021 community update. While we've had an unusually crazy summer, I've squeezed in just a little reading each week. I originally listed 49 books on my must-read list. Here’s an updated visual of my progress showing the 22 books I've finished (as well as the 27 I haven't yet finished): And … Continue reading #MustReadin2021 8/31/21

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 8/30/2021 #imwayr

It’s been quite an interesting summer of traveling, of worrying over sick family (including Delta), watching our skies darken due to forest fires all around us, and believe it or not, we're still continuing to settle into our new home (even though it's been a year since our closing date). My goal was to at … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 8/30/2021 #imwayr

We're currently on vacation to Glacier National Park, so I thought I'd try using the WordPress app on my phone to publish a simple post.

We are going into our last five days at home before heading to Glacier National Park next weekend. It's super exciting preparing to go with all our long lists of packing supplies and fun new hiking purchases like rain ponchos, backpacks, knives, a 6-pack of connected walkie talkies, etc. But it's also been nerve-wracking. For … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/14/2021 #imwayr

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/7/2021 #imwayr

As I mentioned last week, April and May were pretty unusual months for our family between home sale, vacation, and serious family illness. So I'm finally trying to inch my way back into a workable blogging routine. YAY, I made it to the second week! 😂  Outside of a planned vacation to Glacier National Park later … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/7/2021 #imwayr

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 5/31/2021 #imwayr

It's been an unusual last two months between the sale of our house, our vacation to Terry Peak (where we nearly slid right off a steep road and into a gulch during a surprise snow storm), and a severe illness in the family that meant an unexpected 1,000 mile trip across the country (Northwestern Nebraska … Continue reading It’s Monday!
