It's Monday and I'm getting a late start

Hi friends! I'm a little late to the "It's Monday" party this week. I feel like I haven't really been home since Thursday and we have spent a fair amount of time in the car with two kids. We had a nice Thanksgiving, we helped decorate at my parent's house, we had church on Sunday, and then took family photos with my husband's side of the family. The reading has not been so plentiful, especially because husband and I finished watching Jessica Jones this week.

My husband is in the running for sainthood and let me sleep in this morning while he got up and got our son out to the bus. Now I'm making a grocery list and trying to get back in the swing of things. There's lots of planning to do with all of the normal weekly stuff, Christmas planning, and a certain little boy in our house who will turn 8 at the end of this week!

Despite the crazy these past few days, I did I finish reading and reviewed Between You And Me and I think I will finish up A Curious Beginning later today.

                    Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell Mystery, #1)

This week, I am determined to finish reading Bonhoeffer. It's very interesting, but it's tough to find many long stretches to read right now! I also have Accidental Saints: Finding God In All The Wrong People out from the library. I guess I'm continuing Nonfiction November right into December!

What are you reading this week?

  5. Sounds like a great holiday weekend but exhausting. I have seen the Deanna Raybourne book about and never know might get to read it sometime. Love the title of Finding God in the Wrong People. Sounds counter culture!

    1. So far it's only the one book. I'm never sure if it's better to read books in a series spaced out or wait until you can read them all at once!
