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.
My Birthday Dog.
Birthday Boy. We adopted our dog three years ago today. Since we don’t know his real birthday, we decided that his adoption day would be his birthday. He was about two when we got him so now he’s five. He’s been the best boy that one could ever ask for in a dog. Yesterday I … Continue reading My Birthday Dog.
A Visit at the Beach.

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.

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.
