Family Summer Book Club

My daughter-in-law came up with this fun idea to promote summer reading with our granddaughter. But we quickly realized it's fun for the adults too. I have great memories of participating in summer reading programs at the public library as a kid. So when she invited me to join her and my granddaughter I said "Yes"!

We started with "Ivy + Bean And The Ghost That Had To Go" by Annie Barrows. This book is actually no. 2 in a series. And for those of us who adored Beverly Cleary books, in their childhood, this one will be a treat.

We each take turns reading, a page or two, out loud. It's a judgement free zone. Read at your comfortable pace. Skip your turn. Read more pages if you like.

We have Q & A afterwards. Everyone has a turn to respond to the questions and/or give feedback.

This is a fun activity to add to your summer bucket list!

Wicked Cool! I'm #UhaulFamous!

A couple of years ago, I was just informed by Uhaul Moving Company that a photo that I had been submitted would be featured on selected trucks! As I usually do I forgot about it. Last month, Uhaul contacted that my photo is on 20 trucks, located in the LasVegas area! I actually got giddy.
I can actually track the trucks via this Uhaul link. It's fun to think that those trucks will be traveling to places I've never been before!

What I'm Reading This Week! April 20, 2017

I'm back into a routine of visiting our local public library. Thanks to the grandchildren! On my last visit, I discovered these 2 cookbooks on the shelf. "Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home" by Marcus Samuelsson and "Mariel's Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life" by Mariel Hemingway.
I really enjoy reading cookbooks. Many are beautifully written and photograph sometimes I even find a recipe I want to try!

Spring Has Sprung! Master Bedroom

This spring I decided to just add a couple of touches. The pink faux floral bouquet looks gorgeous in here. And with the additional of this beautiful 'Love You to the Moon and Back" pillow from Big Lots I feel that spring has sprung!
