Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Happy Monday!

Did you have a fabulous time with BBAW? I had great plans to participate but after getting my interview up everything else kinda fell through. I did lurk, and bookmark new blog,s so I'm hoping to visit some later on.

Joined a challenge this week (RYOB read-a-thon), completed a challenge (R.I.P), and started two (Magic Kingdom and Cedar Cove). Actually, I may have completed two by the time this is posted. I finally found my "U" character! I know they're supposed to be "main or strong supporting character" but Henry goes to live with his aunt and uncle because his parents have been kidnapped. No kidnapping? No book. I think that's pretty strong support ;) Oh, his parents? .... Phil & Ursula. I thought I was going to have to read The Little Mermaid!

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.

A big Thank You to Staci for hosting in August, the September host is Amused By Books (blog link, not post link).

I bought the Macomber book last week. Not sure when I'll get to read it but I enjoy each visit to Cedar Cove.
