Bring on the Play Time!!


I am probably not going to be able to post much over the next few days- my 3 year old nephew is getting dropped off to spend a few days with us while his parents attend a wedding (get drunk in wine country) in Napa.

Since I have a 15 year old son and a 13 year old daughter, it is safe to say it has been awhile since I have gotten down and dirty with a toddler.

This should be interesting!

When I do get a chance, I plan to write a review for-

beautiful wife

Beautiful Day by Elin Hilberbrand

I LOVED this book, as I have all of her books-they are like taking a mini-vacation!

I read this book in less than 32 hours!

And I am currently reading


Amity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley

A mother and her daughters drive for days without sleep until they crash their car in rural Oklahoma. The mother, Amaranth, is desperate to get away from someone she’s convinced will follow them wherever they go–her husband. The girls, Amity and Sorrow, can’t imagine what the world holds outside their father’s polygamous compound. Rescue comes in the unlikely form of Bradley, a farmer grieving the loss of his wife. At first unwelcoming to these strange, prayerful women, Bradley’s abiding tolerance gets the best of him, and they become a new kind of family. An unforgettable story of belief and redemption, AMITY & SORROW is about the influence of community and learning to stand on your own. (Goodreads)

I am enjoying this a lot- about half way through and hoping to get more in before the little terror-I mean tyke- shows up.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I will be watching lots of Pixar (hello Monsters University), visiting a farm for some apple picking, and playing a whole lot!

  1. I hope you have a blast with the nephew! I’m not sure if Amity & Sorrow sounds like something I’d like but it takes place in my state so I’m interested, can’t wait to read your review!
