I feel like I have been so, so busy. There is always something to do but never enough time to get it all done. I knew that I needed a break so I decided to take off Thursday just to read and relax. I was off again on Friday but I spent that day getting things ready for a family get-together at our house on Saturday. On Saturday, we had my husband’s family over to our house. Most of his family had not seen our new house yet so that was fun. My Mother in Law lives in a nursing home and was able to come to our house as well. It has been over a year since I was able to give her a hug and she was thrilled to be able to have her kids around her. This past year has been extremely difficult for people suffering from dementia.
When I wasn’t working on getting the house clean or working on the blog, I was pulling weeds. I have pulled so many weeds over the past week. I am sure that they will be back next week but it was nice to feel caught up for a short moment. I have no idea what I am doing with plants but I am learning. I love the way our yard looks and I hope that I don’t kill anything too soon.
What I’m Reading
I got through a lot of audiobooks this week. I actually finished Darkroom by Kate Willoughby Saturday night after writing last week’s post and really enjoyed it. Then I decided to listen to a book that I had downloaded from NetGalley and wanted to knock off my tbr pile – Rafael by Laurell K. Hamilton. My feelings are a little mixed with this one. I really wanted to read Later by Stephen King and could resist when I saw that a copy was available to download from my local library. I am not about the ending but I really liked the book overall. I feel like I have been reading The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba by Chanel Cleeton forever. I really enjoyed it but was glad to finally get it finished.
I have a ton of May ARCs to read but I decided to read a June one instead. I have only read a little of Bath Haus by P.J. Vernon but I am loving it so far!
Bath House by P.J. Vernon (NetGalley), The Passing Playbook by Isaac Fitzsimons (Publisher), Switch by A.S. King (Bookish First), One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston (LibroFM), The Anatomy of Desire by L.R. Dorn (LibroFM)
