I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Saturday Snapshot & Quote

Saturday Snapshot
hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.

We've now been in this house for 19 Memorial Days. I know this because we moved in in the middle of May and then said "hey, we have a pool, let's have a party" and the family all came over and had a party in our new pool. With packing boxes everywhere!

Soon it was "My children don't ask if we're going to your house anymore, they ask what time". Then it became "one year you're going to decide not to do it and we're going to show up anyways".

One of the best things is jumping off the patio roof into the pool (it's ten feet at the deep end) and why yes, it does look a long way down.....

but it's still fun!

Awesome! I'll be many children have great memories of jumping off your patio roof into the pool. It would seem forbidden, but so fun!

Brave kid! I don't think I'd be wanting to do that but I know my kids would think it was fantastic! :)

Book Dragon said...

When we first moved it there was a slide up there!

Literary Feline said...

How fun! I don't think I'd be brave enough to jump that far though. LOL

Trish said...

What a great story! That does look like a lot of fun :)

Oh my goodness! I'd never be able to jump in from that height - have a little problem with high places. :-)

Good for you and enjoy the pool this summer. We've just sold our house with the pool and I'm not even sad about no pool maintenance! LOL

Sounds like an awesome time.

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Great shots but they make my knees wobbly - heights do that to me :) I'll bet the kids love it!

I was a chicken, so I'd never have tried that as a kid...LOL
