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.

RC: Cozy Mysteries


Cruisin' thru the Cozies
hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews
for more information and to sign up, click here

This challenge is all about the cozy mystery! Not sure what a "cozy" is? Check out this site.

There are several levels, I'm going for Level 1 - Snoop and hope to read at least 6 books. Only books started and finished during 2016 count. Any format. There will be a place to link reviews but they aren't necessary, just a list of books read.

The Crafty Cozy Challenge

I didn't see a requirement for a specific number of books and while reviews aren't necessary there is a prize opportunity if you link yours. This challenge is also all about the cozy but needs a "craft" element. Maggie Shefton works because not only does she own a yarn shop, she knits!

Craving for Cozies may also be hosted by Books Are Life but while I was able to find a "I finished this many" page, I was unable to find a sign up page. :-(  There is a Facebook page. There are several levels but I'm going for Famished and hope to read 1-10 books.
