I am finally feeling a bit better! Hurray! I still have a lingering cough, mostly at night, but much better. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. My mom, my sister, her husband and two boys, my father-in-law and his wife were all here! We had a very yummy turkey dinner with all the good fixings. Well, except I didn't let my father-in-law make his oyster dressing. But I don't really consider that part of the 'good' fixings. We played lots of cards, played with the baby and his three-year-old brother, and ate lots. I even made chicken lasagna for dinner on Friday so we'd get a break from the turkey.
I did take pictures of my nephews. I will have to ask my sister first before I post them here. But they are worth waiting for! What cuties! While you are waiting, here's a picture my sister took of my girl and me.
I am eager to take pictures of my kids now. When I do, I'd better be sure to get a pic or two of me and my boy.
It was another slow reading week. Between being sick and having everyone here (and all the cleaning that goes along with that), I only finished one book: Blackbird, Farewell by Robert Greer. I have started Anita Shreve's latest, Testimony, but am having trouble moving past the opening scene. Kinda graphic and emotional. Hoping it gets...better isn't the right word, but easier to read. I posted my review of The Note by Angela Hunt.
I didn't get my next digital scrapbooking post finished so will work on getting that done this week. I also am working on a post about the believability of the action in books. Reading this week will be finishing Testimony then on to LOLAs next book - The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs.
My next post will be my 200th post on the blog!!! To celebrate, I will be having a book giveaway! Be sure to check back tomorrow for the details!
I'd love to hear about your week. Leave a comment and tell me what you are doing and what you are reading!
