Ho-Ho-Ho Wrap-Up

Ho-Ho-Ho Wrap-Up

The Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon is over (several days ago). It was sponsored by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and by Jennifer at The Bawdy Book Blog.

Last Week Around the House Spring Clean-up in Iowa We haven’t been around the house too much. We drove from Maryland to Iowa for a quick trip to see some of our family. We’ve been having a great time here in Iowa and though we don’t see flowers blooming or trees leafing out yet it’s in the 60’s. Nice to have some warm weather. We haven’t had more than a day or two in the 60’s… Read more »
