Is it time for a break yet? I could really use one right about now. Last Sunday, we hosted Thanksgiving for my husband’s family. Our garage party seemed to work out well, although I am not sure that everyone was a fan of my dogs being in the middle of everything. What can I say – they are spoiled and wanted to come to Thanksgiving too! At the end of the meal, my daughter drove back to college and my husband and I went back to our regular routines.
Yesterday, my sister and her family were in town for a Christmas celebration. We decided to pick up food for the event so I grabbed some pulled pork along with several sides from the local BBQ joint. It was nice to take a break from cooking and the food seemed to go over well. My mom had all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren there with the exception of my youngest daughter who couldn’t come home from college again so soon. Someone decided that we needed to take some photos so I thought I would share one of my mom, my sisters, and me. Of course, I am the dork on the right who can’t be serious if there is a camera around.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I was back to work this week so I had more time for audiobooks. I finished The Operator by Kim Harrison on Monday and really enjoyed it. Child of Mine by Karen Grey was a wonderful work week distraction. Hurricane Summer by Asha Bromfield was a very emotional story that I plan to review next week.
I am still reading The Sea King by C.L. Wilson and have made it to 15%. I don’t dislike the book but it hasn’t grabbed me yet so I really don’t feel all that compelled to read. I decided to go ahead and listen to The Poison Artist by Jonathan Moore. I am at the 65% mark and should finish early next week.
