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.

Progress
  • Nov 6: I'm still on vacation and don't have plans to do any reading that counts ;-) . . . I was wrong! I started Twin Threat Christmas by Rachelle McCalla yesterday but was able to finish today! Also read some of Plaid Tidings by Mia Watts but started it earlier - it isn't on the list. :-(
  • Nov 7: traveling home but it will be a short trip from pier to house . . . wow, I'm so sleepy! Serves me right for staying up to finish my book when I knew how early I needed to be awake. Short nap, dinner out, a stop at the grocery store and other things needed to do after a return then, finally, reading! Started 'Tis the Season and finished one of the short stories.
  • Nov 8: Read the next story in 'Tis the Season, only one more to go but Personal by Lee Child and household chores had a stronger pull.
  • Nov 9: Finished 'Tis the Season, started The Christmas Cat
  • Nov 10: Finished The Christmas Cat, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D - season 1 :-)
  • Nov 11: read more Personal by Lee Child and started another short story in Our First Christmas
Final Report
Twin Threat Christmas by Rachelle McCalla
'Tis the Season by Robyn Carr
The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson
