Life: It Goes On - July 6
I've also been having loads of fun over the long holiday weekend. Hope you've all had plenty of time for the same! We enjoyed lots of fireworks (thanks to our neighbor who put on multiple amazing shows over the weekend), family and friends' music. How did you celebrate the birth of our nation?
This Week I'm:
Listening To: Still No Time To Wave Goodbye but I'm not sure I'll stick with it. I really did not enjoy the first part of the book and when I finally read the synopsis of the book, I think I'll soon be annoyed that Mitchard, rather than really delving into the repercussions from the events of the first book, has used exactly the same hook.
Watching: Took advantage of free HBO last weekend to get caught up on "Game of Thrones." Now wanting to pick up the first book in the series but not sure how I'll fit it in to my reading plans in the foreseeable future.
Reading: Just finished Losing Touch by Sandra Hunt for a TLC Book Tours review tomorrow then I'm back to Jojo Moyes One Plus One.
Making: Red velvet cake, hot homemade chocolate sauce for the homemade my mom brought, monster cookie dough dip, and mini peach/rhubarb pies for my dad.
Planning: An upcoming vacation and a bridal shower for my nephew's fiancee.
Grateful for: This long weekend - it's been great for recharging my batteries.
Enjoying: The wonderfully cool temperatures we've been having. It's back to reality today, though. May need to find some water to play in.
Looking forward to: My brother-in-law and his wife coming to town this weekend. Haven't seen them in months. What are you looking forward to this week?
