So yesterday’s top ten Tuesday’s prompt was: Things that get in the way of reading. I never remember Top Ten Tuesday because it’s not something I follow religiously until I see another blog posting about it and if it’s an interesting prompt. Since I’ve been busy the last few weeks, obviously it wasn’t on my … Continue reading 10 things that get in the way of reading.
Weekend Pursuits 4/14/23 to 4/16/23
This weekend (so far) has been pretty busy for me. I had to take my dog for his yearly shots Friday afternoon so I took him for a walk an hour or two beforehand so he could be in a happy mood before we went inside. He whined and cried the whole time we were … Continue reading Weekend Pursuits 4/14/23 to 4/16/23
Reading old friends.
What book could you read over and over again? I’ve read Me Before You by JoJo Moyes many times and never got tired of it. I used to read A Great and Terrible Beauty over and over, but I recently re read the first two books and realized they don’t do the same thing for … Continue reading Reading old friends.
The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott.
I managed to finish reading "The Secrets We Kept" by Lara Prescott yesterday. It didn't take me long to read in the general scheme of reading books (maybe 1.5-2 weeks), but to me it felt like it took forever. I bought the book off of Thriftbooks because it was a Reese's Book Club choice not … Continue reading The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott.
The Secrets We Kept and Doctor Zhivago.
I decided to start reading The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott. The book is a Reese Witherspoon book club pick from a couple years back when she first started the book club. Other than that, I didn't know a whole lot about it. So when I started reading it, I was in for a … Continue reading The Secrets We Kept and Doctor Zhivago.
Books and Life 3/22/23
I'm currently reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I started reading it a few days ago and I'm already halfway through it. I didn't think I'd enjoy it but since I'm trying to read books that I already own, I decided I might as well read it and see what's going on … Continue reading Books and Life 3/22/23
My February 2023 in Books
I read five books in February. This is amazing considering I had a cold at the beginning of the month and didn’t feel like reading. Granted one was an unusual cookbook with blurbs in it and another one was super short but that’s okay. Plus one or two I was reading for forever and happened … Continue reading My February 2023 in Books
What I did and cooked on a rainy Monday.
Because it was a heavy rain and wind day yesterday, I stayed home all day. I did a little bit of laundry but mostly I just snuggled and read all day. Apparently there was a lot of tornado warnings around the state but nothing near my house. Even my husband had to sit in the … Continue reading What I did and cooked on a rainy Monday.
Photo by Dids on Pexels.com Yesterday was fairly busy. I got up early and put the towels in the wash and took care of the dog. After that I decided to go to the early morning church service. We don't go every week, but I felt like going this week. It was interesting. I like … Continue reading Weekend News.
