I have gotten into the habit of watching a bit of BookTube (you know, book-related YouTube) while I drink my coffee in the morning. I’ve found a few channels I quite like and I may post about them in the future, but that is not why I’m here today. I came across a prompt that […]

I know that so many of you have been dealing with excessive heat and we’ve mostly escaped it. However, our time is running out on that front! We’re supposed to get a heat wave this week, so I’m guessing there will be only minimal forays from our air conditioned house coming up. It’s kind of […]

Before I get into the business of the week, I wanted to let my fellow bloggers know that I seem to be having a commenting problem. Sometimes (not all the time) when I’m trying to comment on a Blogger blog, my comment just sort of evaporates. I’m not sure what the problem is, but if […]

We are halfway through the year! I know, we over halfway through the year but I always consider the 4th of July as the halfway point. So, how was everyone’s holiday? As I said last week, I wasn’t exactly feeling it this year (for obvious reasons). That being said, we did end up having a […]

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update. I know that one week was Father’s Day and one week I was raging and wanted to burn it all down. I think there was another week in there that I missed, but I can’t remember why. Anyhow, I’m back and my reading wrap up will […]

All of you in the Northern Hemisphere…have you gotten summer yet? Because I’m still waiting for it in the Pacific Northwest. I do remember June being cooler and wetter when I was a kid, but it has been dry and warm for several years…until this year. I keep chanting to myself, “We need the rain…we […]

Another week and we’re finally in June! First off, thank you for your thoughts last week about my son having Covid. Unfortunately, we all ended up with it (I am very glad I wrote last week’s post on Saturday!) but we’ve come through to the other side. While I never want to go through that […]

Hello all! First off, an apology to all the bloggers I didn’t get a chance to visit last week. I don’t know what it was, but the week was just overly busy…and I was dealing with May exhaustion, which is now the least of my worries. So, Chris has COVID. I’m a little miffed about […]

It’s been a while! Well, I missed two weeks–the first was Mother’s Day which I consciously took off from writing posts. Then, last weekend, I was just wiped out. I got the great idea that I would do this post on Saturday this week, but then we were so busy on Saturday that it didn’t […]

It’s May, y’all! Where on earth is time going? The kids only have about 6 weeks left of school and I still feel like it is the middle of winter! The weather is not exactly helping with that feeling. The last several years, we’ve had warm, dry springs. This spring is much more like the […]
