It's Monday...watcha reading this week?


It's been a long week. The reading part has been good, but the life part has been pretty crazy! I'm starting to work on an upcoming concert for charity in addition to choosing and prepping church music for Lent. David had his first sleepover that was not at a relative's house and had a blast. The hubby and I actually got to go out on a date without kids in tow! Life is never boring around here.

    1. How wonderful! You always miss them, but there is nothing like a few nights of sleep without a crying baby or an small elbow in the gut.

    1. I know, it was a very strange and novel thing! We are lucky to have grandparents who are willing to babysit and who live fairly close to us.

      The Stranger You Know is ok for me. The pacing is great, but the characters are falling a bit flat.

    1. It's a mystery about this group of investigators looking into a string of murders of red-headed college students. The head of the team is a redhead herself and may be the last target.
