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

Spent the weekend with my MIL. Her BIL died and a bunch of us went to the funeral but my MIL had hip replacement surgery recently enough that she was unable to go. I stayed with her so her husband could go to the funeral. She lives close by so I was able to pop back home for stuff but I think I interrupted my son's day. . . he thought he had the house to himself all weekend ;-)

Hope everyone has a great week planned

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home; print, electronic and audio. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

Good question Kathy. These are books that I've started, aren't actively reading but are still stacked up next to my reading chair. The ones I haven't given up on (yet?)
