It's Monday and I just got home...


Hi everybody! I'm back after a weekend away. I was in upstate NY here. It was so nice to spend time with my mom, my grandmother, and two of my sisters. It's always lovely to get away for a few days and not worry about doing the laundry or cleaning the house. That being said, it's wonderful to be home. I missed my two boys quite a bit.

    1. I really enjoyed The Imperfectionists. I had added it to my reading list a long time ago and couldn't quite remember what it was about. It is a really wonderfully written book.

  5. Upstate New York is beautiful. Two weeks ago I had to take a break from this meme. Our one year old tuxedo cat had gone missing. It took us ten days to find her. Please come see what I'm reading now.

    1. We had a great time chatting and playing Dutch Blitz. It's a rather addicting game.

      I'm off to check out your review of Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. Hooray!

    1. I'm really enjoying Wish You Were Here. It's a really insightful book about family.
      I'm excited to read The Last Tycoon. I think it's the only one of his novels that I have not read before.

    1. Thanks Tanya! We did get some rain, but it's one of those trips when it's more about the company than the weather. :)

    1. It was wonderful, especially since some of my sisters are at college and I don't get to see them as much as I might like. :(
      I hope you have some great books this week!

    1. Thanks, Fay. The Imperfectionists was great. I'm excited to read The Last Tycoon myself and see what the editors did with an unfinished book.
