August 2017 books on my list

August 2017 books on my list

August 4, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 4

I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of as the months go by. I don’t buy all these books–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. August 1 On Her Majesty’s Frightfully Secret… Read more »

Half over, half left

July 5, 2017 2017, Blog Challenges 6

Life is busy lately–nothing bad, but I haven’t gotten posts done. I’m hoping to fix that and start posting more, but our summer is a busy and wonderful time. My daughter adopted a new dog and named her Juneau. She was abandoned by someone and is a real sweetheart. Hard to imagine someone abandoning her.

We’ve had a number of visitors which I love and lots of activities–barbecues, baseball games, a birthday, visiting gardens and garden centers. It’s all fun, but also… Read more »
