We're currently enjoying a 4-day weekend for our college Midterm Break and WOW did we need the break! We'll also be celebrating my husband's 50th birthday (tomorrow) and enjoying this super nice weather we've been having. So this week I'll be sharing just one novel and a few newer fall/Halloween books we read this week. … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/18/2021 #imwayr

On Friday, my husband headed to Texas for my father-in-law's memorial service. So with him out of town, I decided to make this my weekend of reviewing past posts and seeing where I failed to follow-up on comments. And that's when I discovered just how badly I've dropped the ball. Ugh. I don't know how … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/11/2021 #imwayr

We officially celebrated my birthday yesterday. My husband made a fantastic Gluten-Free soup, Olive Garden salad, and he even baked a delicious Gluten-free cheese cake for me. Then he and the kiddos combined their money to get me a beautiful hodgepodge of fall-ish gifts from chocolates to fancy coffees to new hoodies to candles to … Continue reading It’s Monday!

I can't believe we're almost to the end of the month! My birthday is this Thursday, the last day of September, and I guess there's no reason to be secretive about the fact that I'll be turning 49. There was a time when I thought that kind of thing was to remain hush-hush, but now... … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/27/2021 #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

If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome! Today is Monday, and I regularly participate in a weekly #IMWAYR meme. Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give Kathryn’s (at Book Date) “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” meme a kidlit focus, reviewing books in children’s literature (picture books, chapter … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/13/2021 #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. This week I brought just a few books along, just in case I catch a few moments to read in the car. So briefly, I brought: And while I have … Continue reading It’s Monday!
