It's Monday and I'm breathing a little easier...

Good morning, readers! How are you? How was your weekend? Ours was good, but a little crazy. The husband had a Christmas party with the youth group he leads on Friday night. Saturday was somewhat of a lazy day, but Sunday was a Christmas Worship Service of Music that we were in charge of (no pressure at all). I am happy to report that it went well and I was so happy that my mom could come and accompany my singing in the service. Now that I'm not in charge of anything for a while, I'm not feeling so frenzied. I'm ready to focus on Christmas and being with my family.

Also, before you head on to your next bookish blog, check out this post. I'm going to be reading through the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald in 2012, and I would love for you to join me! Let me know what you are reading in the comments. Make sure to check back later in the week - my 100th post is coming up and I'm feeling in a very giving mood... 


  1. I'm eager to read Dovekeepers. It's a reading group choice for this spring in my f-to-f group.

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

  2. Stiff I've read. The others on your list look fascinating.

    I'm on vacation and the time off has given me time to finish my GoodReads challenge. Please come see what I'm reading.
