This was another normal week. I guess the big news for the week is the changes to this blog. Michelle at Lima Bean Designs did such a fabulous job with the header! I am really surprised by just how affordable it was to get this done. I would have done it years ago if I had any idea that it wouldn’t break the bank! I am still making adjustments but I am happy with my blog’s overall appearance.
I did get to see my family last weekend and celebrate my niece and nephew’s 7th birthday! I cannot believe that they are already 7! We have been doing a lot of work around my mom’s house so we brought her the swing that my husband put together for her and got it set up on her existing frame. My mom and I took it for a test run for just a bit….until it came crashing to the ground. The swing wasn’t the problem. The frame holding the swing broke and dropped us on the ground before landing on us. More of the weight landed on me than my mom but we both ended up with some bruises and a good laugh. It was quite a sight to see.
What I’m Reading
I finished two books this week. I can listen to audiobooks at work but during the work week but I seem to be getting almost no time to actually sit down with a book. I read for maybe 20 minutes in bed before falling asleep and then have a marathon reading session on the weekends if I don’t have other obligations. I really need to find a better balance. I listened to The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton and really enjoyed it. She has done such a fabulous job with these books. I put all other books aside once Priest of Gallows by Peter McLean landed on my Kindle on Thursday. This is such a fabulous series and it is completely underrated. Priest of Gallows was one of my most anticipated reads for the year and it was just as good as I had hoped it would be.
I just didn’t get any time to read Switch by A.S. King but hope to finish it before heading back to work on Tuesday. It is a short book so that should be doable. I have been reading Falling by T.J. Newman on my Kindle and it has been quite the page-turner so far. I decided to knock a book off of my NetGalley tbr by listening to The Last Secret You’ll Ever Keep by Laurie Faria Stolarz and am finding it to be just okay.
