It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Happy Monday

Not much to talk about. I've hit a wall with my reading but have done so well with my challenges this year I made a plan and hope to bust through the wall. The Lair will be a tour stop on the 18th for God's Eye so that book must be read/reviewed.

Since I haven't felt like reading, I finished a baby blanket and started a new one (new stitch!). I also made a necklace to go with a new skirt. It's a double strand and there were enough beads left over for a pair of double drop earrings and three bracelets. No pictures yet.

Hope everyone has plans for a great week.


Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

July's host is Gwendolyn at A Sea of Books (blog link, not post link).

I have started a few books some of them I have had for some time.
Maybe I will read them one day or just give up and give them to someone who might enjoy them.

I am a newbie to "What are you reading?"
I am following you now.
Come and see what I am reading.

Sometimes it's best to just do other things when I hit that wall. I'm a fairly new knitter but I enjoy it and do alot more of it between books. Have a good week!
