Books I finished this week:
These are books 2 and 3 in the Tucker Mills Trilogy. After my not so great review of book 1, I have to say that books 2 and 3 were better. I think that in book 1, the author took a lot of time to introduce you to so many characters that it got boring. Both of these books above focus more on one or two main individuals and what is happening in their life; the rest of the people just fit in where they need to throughout the story. Again, if you are looking for some simple reads - these fit the bill!
Since none of my other books have changed, I'll stop here for today. So yes, I've been busy reading. I'm hoping for some cooler weather now so that I can get back to my daily routines, cleaning schedules, and also some deeper reading (I find it hard to really concentrate when I have sweat dripping down my back ;-) )
I'm Loving . . . the fact that my 2 1/2 year old is starting to have full conversations with me. I can't understand every word (sometimes only 1 word out of 20). We sat outside one afternoon enjoying popscicles and a full conversation that including picking some cherry tomatoes.
I'm loving . . . that my little garden is actually producing some veggies. I'm not getting a ton of stuff but it has been so hot . . ..
I'm loving . . . that I don't have a huge electric bill as so many do that have Air :-) (hehehe - trying to be postive about being so HOT!)
I'm loving . . . . the Oatmeal butterscotch bars I made this week . . . they are like giant Oatmeal Scotchies YUM!
I'm loving . . . our nightly family time in our (nice cold) bedroom! After bathtime, we take the boys in there to watch Wheel of Fortune and just plain have fun. We laugh, sing lots of songs and than slowly wind down in time to put the kids to bed :-) Such great memories!
I'm loving . . . my Husband!!! He's my best friend and my everything. I'm so thankful that he is willing to work such crazy hours and willing to work so many hours in a week so that I can stay home with our kids.
What are YOU loving this week?
