Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Yesterday I shared my Autumn Adventures list with you, and I promised to come back and give you a final update on my Summertime list.  Here it is! 1.  Bake something special.  DONE!  I *did* do some more baking, but nothing too crazy.  While our son was home on leave I baked some peanut blossoms.  You know the ones.  Peanut butter cookies with a Hershey’s Kiss plunked on top.  I also baked an apple cake for my husband’s birthday.  That’s…

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

We’re having a rainy Friday here today.  Temps are nice.  A cool 62 degrees last I looked.  (Yes, that’s cool for Coastal Georgia!)  It’s been a quiet day.  A pajama day, if you’d like to know.  It’s been a good day for mulling things over, you know? Rainy days always make me miss Europe.  And since I just finished a great audio book set on a Scottish island, I’m especially missing it!  The book is The Cafe by the Sea…

Reading Challenge 2018

Reading Challenge 2018

Ahhhhh!  A new year!  I love the reset a new year presents!  I’m still reflecting on 2017 and thinking about the possibilities 2018 brings, but one thing I HAVE (mostly) nailed down is my reading list for the 2018 Reading Challenge hosted by Anne Bogel of What Should I Read Next and Modern Mrs. Darcy. Anne hosts a reading challenge every year, and I decided

What I Read – November 2016

Yikes!  DECEMBER is almost over, so I’m quickly backtracking to talk about the books I read in NOVEMBER! My Southern Journey: True Southern Stories from the Heart of the South  by Rick Bragg. If you’re from the South, you’ll want to read this book!  If you’re NOT from the South, you’ll want to read this book!

READ::WATCH::LISTEN::FOLLOW – December 2016

With all the visual and written media flying around these days, it can be hard to decide what to choose, what might be worth a little of our precious time.  Behold!  The Read::Watch::Listen::Follow link up!  My friend Sheila hosts this every month, and the linked posts are chock full of great recommendations.  Here are mine for this month. READ:  I’ve read some GREAT books over the last few weeks!  I plan to post my “Books Read in November” list tomorrow,…

What I Read in October 2016

What I Read in October 2016

I can’t believe how FEW books I read last month!  October was just nuts.  It started with a FANTASTIC friends reunion and then moved immediately to Hurricane Matthew.  Life froze for a week or two as we anticipated, rode out, and then recovered from that.  THEN the catch-up frenzy began.  Add a Write 31 Days blogging challenge into the mix, and let’s just say that I did not read my usual number of books in October, and the books I…

What I Read – September 2016

What I Read – September 2016

My goodness!  September is already gone?!?  I’m pretty sure it’s June.  But…the leaves ARE looking like they may start to change colors pretty soon.  We’ve had a HOT September here in Coastal Georgia, and when it’s hot outside, we all know what to do, right?  READ BOOKS!  Here’s what I read this month.

I love WORDS!  Language!  Story!  The sharing of the momentous and the minuscule and everything in between.  These days we have a superabundance of words available to us via everything from good ol’ books to magazines to YouTube to podcasts and blogs.  Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start reading/listening to all those words! Voila!  Welcome to a new monthly link up with my friend Sheila over at Making the Most of Every Day and several others!  Each month…

My Summer Bookshelf – August

My Summer Bookshelf – August

Welcome to the final edition of My Summer Book Shelf!  Summer is wrapping up.  Temperatures are finally closer to 90 than 100.  (Hallelujah!)  The Summer Olympics have come and gone.  (Am I the only one who had trouble balancing life and reading and the Olympics?  Sleep deprivation, anyone?!?) But the books go on, do they not!  Here’s how I did with my August “To Be Read” list:

Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Do you guys love your local library as much as I do?!?  I love that I can put books on hold, HOWEVER!  What is it with library holds and their crazy timing in showing up?!?  I’m a HUGE fan of the Olympics, and all my library holds came in right as the Olympics started!  Seriously?!? So what does one do in this situation?  One deals with sleep deprivation!  Am I right?!?
