Post from: May 2019

First off, Happy USA Mother's Day to all my fellow moms. :)

Today, my family granted me the pleasure of an afternoon of undisturbed reading time.

The sun streamed through the windows of our living room while I sat in a comfy rocking chair and enjoyed a warm drink and a book from the top of my stack. Hours passed. Periodically I would look up from the pages and spot children (mine included) blur past the front window on bikes, all of them enjoying the sunshine and 75 degree weather. (That's 75 fahrenheit for you lovely internationals).

And, because my husband decided to spend Sunday afternoon cleaning off his workbench in the garage, the inside of our house was blissfully quiet. Yay. 

Reading makes me happy.

When I finished that book from the stack, I paused, pulled out my computer, and decided to give you a quick update on my most recent reads, titles I've finished within the last handful of months. So here they are:
