It has been 2 weeks since my last weekly wrap-up. Last Sunday, I spend the entire day in the car so posting just wasn’t practical. We left for vacation on Tuesday, July 13th, and spent the entire day driving. We finally made it to Columbus, GA around 9:00 pm. My daughter’s trombone conference started on Wednesday about mid-day so after we got her there, my husband and I hit a local bookstore or two. Because you have to visit bookstores on vacation it’s a rule. Then we were off to a really cool park that had a canyon. We did a 3-mile hike and it was rough but the views were spectacular! On Thursday, we went to Atlanta and toured the Coca-Cola Museum, and then I met an old friend that now lives in the area. Spending time with my friend, Yolanda, and her niece was my favorite part of the trip. On Friday, we went to Montgomery, AL, and explored some of the history there. On Saturday, we went to Senoia which is where a few seasons of The Walking Dead and some other shows and movies were filmed and took in the sights. We stumbled upon a covered bridge that day and also had time to stop off at a gorgeous part will an old mill.
I was right back at work the next morning after driving home from Georgia. Since I have been home, I have been buried in laundry, weeds, and various other things that needed attention around the house. It has been overwhelming. I was able to post a few reviews but didn’t have much of a chance to blog hop. I hope to be around a lot more next week!
What I’m Reading
I finished four books in two weeks. I was hoping for more since I was on vacation for much of the time but that didn’t work out. My husband doesn’t read and likes to be more active on trips so reading just didn’t happen. I finished City of Lies by Victoria Thompson before we headed out on our trip and I thought it was pretty good. I listened to A Good Day for Chardonnay by Darynda Jones in the car during our trip and had a great time with it. I finished Capture the Crown by Jennifer Estep a few days ago and enjoyed it quite a bit. I was able to listen to Legacy by Nora Roberts at work this week which was a pleasant way to spend the workday.
I am about a quarter of the way through Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas and am enjoying it quite a bit. I started reading The Weight of This World by David Joy when I pulled the book off of my shelf to prepare my Books from the Backlog post this week. I have about 100 pages left and hope to finish it today.
