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. Bailey and Juneau seem to get along well which is really important. My daughter also got a new bike and has enjoyed biking. We have great bike trails. 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 »

May 24, 2016 2016, Top Ten Tuesday 2

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at the Broke and the Bookish blog. Each week a different topic is introduced and it is fun to see what everyone writes each week. Check out their blog for more information. Note: When I linked my TTT to the Broke and Bookish blog I realized I’m a week early with this post! This week I’m talking about my “beach read” books. I define beach reads as comfort reads. . . books I’m excited to read, from authors I’ve read before and want to read again. These are all books I already own…maybe ones I’ve had on my bookshelf or Kindle for quite… Read more »
