When I was teaching I hated Monday…as did every teacher in my district. We were required to stay at school for meetings until…I think…5 o’clock. It wasn’t outrageous but resentment ran deep among teachers who volunteerily stayed late or worked through lunch or came in early any way…so Monday was a come home grumpy day…a toast for dinner day…an exhausting day! But now that I am not teaching…Monday is a happy day! An early workout, a Mexican Taco Bowl for lunch…dinner is Ina Garten’s Meatloaf…already made and in the refrigerator…ready for the oven. Den is making his special smashed potatoes! Oh my…I do love Monday…plus tonight is American Idol! Are you watching? I love it!
Today was also Bullet Journal Day! One thing I learned? It’s hard to prep a journal with a lively Tonk who is interested in everything! My Roxie Blue!
Books! Books! Books!
I finished these over the weekend…both were really awesome. This one was from the library…I forgot how much I love this series!
This one…I tried not to read it but I couldn’t help myself…I don’t think it’s coming out until June so I will save the review…but it’s about a family and what adultery does to a marriage and a family. And…it was really yummy!
Now I am reading and totally loving this one…it has one of my fave characters…the creepy dysfunctional serial killer…yikes!
I am also reading this…it’s a fantasy involving muses, flickering people and a battle…it’s fascinating but I read it in spurts!
Still reading this…a fantasy involving a dragon, a dragon lord, Shakespeare, Tolkien, Jane Austen and many more authors…it’s good but I am also reading it in short bursts…I should not have started two really good fantasies at the same time…my bad! I really want to finish my two fantasies this week! I think I will!
New and delicious books that I do not have…yet! However…scratch the Emily Giffin book…that just appeared in my email from Random House and Ballantine through NetGalley! Yahoo!
Some new and delicious books that I do have…
Date With Malice came in SNAIL MAIL from one of my fave publishers…St. Martin’s Press. Between You And Me and Family Trust are from my much loved Edelweiss…and all of my other ebooks are from the lovely publishers and NetGalley!
In case you are wondering? I went out to dinner on Saturday night! We went rather early…6 ish but it was so crowded…I forgot it was St. Patrick’s Day! But my hair looked ok for short spiky weirdly curly hair…and we had fun!
Have a great Monday!
