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

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Challenge - Color Coded

The Color Coded Reading Challenge
Hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block
sign up here

Thanks Bev! She wasn't going to host this one again but some asked and ... here it is! Join us again this year! Nine books. Nine colors. Well, seven specific colors plus one other and a word that implies color, such as rainbow or plaid.

Struggled with brown last year but I had four review books to help with the list last year, not sure what I'll be reading this year! I've got two review books off the top of my head that will help...wonder if there are others.

1. Blue

Town in a Blueberry Jam
by B. B. Haywood
2. Red ....Red Alert....
3. Yellow
4. Green
5. Brown
6. Black
7. White

Just a Little White Lie
by Lynette Hallberg

8. another color

Amethyst Moon
by Ann Mayburn
9. implies color

Pieces of a Rainbow
by Maria Savva

1-6: Yea! Two titles more to go....I've got some ideas but wanted to get the initial post up so I could sign up.

You're welcome, Gina! So glad to have people interested--and there were those who were hanging out hoping I'd do it again who found it too late last year. Who knew? Just goes to show one shouldn't feel neglected after all. :-)
