I am so lucky to have a local book store named An Unlikely Story. I've written about it before. It is my happy place. To go and browse books, have a coffee or lunch in the cafe and be able to hear authors speak is a joy. Today I went to a luncheon for one … Continue reading Lucky

I have lost my will to read. The horror. I am blaming this on being really sick all of May. I didn't read, didn't work out, missed work days and if I wasn't doing mom duties, I was in bed zoning out to Netflix (Father Brown) and Prime (Silent Witness). I just couldn't concentrate. So, … Continue reading Book Date

I went to my happy place, An Unlikely Story Book Store. (Notice the quidditch brooms!) I browsed, found a book, … Continue reading Yarn Along

Day to Day

With two small kids, every day is busy and full of wonder and learning. We've discovered a new musical instrument-the piano! Sincere apologies to my aunt and uncle for all the noise. We saw our niece graduate high school! Apologies to other audience members, we tried to keep them corralled.  We really did. Miss ME had her … Continue reading Day to Day
