It's Monday and I'm a little behind today!

Hey everyone! It's Monday afternoon and I'm finally here!

We had one of those good and hectic weekends. I worked late on Friday and picked up the boy from a sleepover on Saturday morning, Then we all went to the birthday party of our nephew Saturday afternoon and spent Sunday at church and the afternoon/evening celebrating Father's Day with my husband and dad.


I have still been reading, of course. It is good for this lady's mental health to find some quiet time every day to read a few chapters. I finished Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World and then read What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. Currently, I'm reading The Fifth Avenue Artists Society and am looking forward to tackling Stewart O'Nan's City of Secrets next.

What are you reading this week?

    1. I think I'm on a good reading streak. :)

      The Oyeyemi was a mixed bag for me. I loved some of the stories, but there were a few that I had to motivate myself to keep reading.
