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 sure if it's really a happy Monday. I'm still in the car :-( Five days of vacation and that included four days of driving 5 hours/day. We could have done it quicker but it was better for my parents to split up the driving. You'll have to wait to hear about the vacation.

I have plans to make cookies and chocolate zucchini bread to take to the reunion. Wonder if I did? (no cookies but the bread came out tasty)

This was scheduled for today and updated before I left with no idea if I'd be able to update again while on vacation. I did received some great books before I left and had a hard time not changing my pile of books to take! (free wifi at lunch time - hotel last night charged for internet!)

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).
