This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Taking on a World of Words. The idea is to answer the three questions below.

I haven’t read or blogged or commented a lot since my husband and I are building a fence in our large backyard. It’s taking a lot of time and I’m really tired when we’re not out there fence building.

Sunday Post: More fence building

May 7, 2017 2017, Sunday Post 10

Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. Home and Blog The weather is beautiful here. A little rain earlier in the week and now lots of sun and temps in the 70’s. I don’t know if the weather or just the time of year has made my allergies go into hyper drive. I blew my nose and my eyes itched all… Read more »

May 2017 books on my list

May 2017 books on my list

May 2, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 8

These are the May books on my list. 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 find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed…. Read more »

Who done it?

Who done it?

April 14, 2017 2017, Audiobooks, B, B-, B+, book rating, mini book review, reviews 6

This year I’m trying something different with the books I read. I’m not going to do a separate review for every book I read. I need to shake-up my blog a bit and this is one way I’ve decided to do it. These are some of the mysteries I’ve read since the first of the year. Real Murders and A Bone to Pick by Charlaine Harris (Aurora Teagarden series #1 & 2) Audiobook, purchased, narrated by Thérèse Plummer Charlaine Harris wrote a new book–Sleep Like a Baby–in this series last fall.
