And just like that we are already mid-February!! It was a busy week last week and I decided to throw together a romance week this week for Valentine's day.  I know not everyone is into it or has a valentine, but I love romance books and when better to share them?!  So I will be having a few reviews, a giveaway later today and a few discussion posts so I hope you have time to come back and join me!  Also, my book orders over the past month and a half all decided to come in at the same time (Hubby was not amused). I really need to get better about checking the library before I buy a book, because several of the ones ordered are available for immediate borrowing or have a very short wait list.

We have been having beautiful weather here lately and got to spend a bunch of time this weekend outside. Munchkin and I had an intense game of hide and seek, which was really fun. Then the whole family went for a walk, it was so nice but gosh I need to start exercising because I was a bit sore after the 3 miles up and down hills. We also got to go out to dinner, something we don't do often, but after reading The Coincidence of Coconut and all the talk about cheese curds and hard cider, I needed to have some!  All and all last week was a pretty great week and I am looking forward to more weeks like that, hopefully the weather can hold out!


  1. This is a great week for romance reviews! Keep them coming.
    I’m trying to get better at borrowing books instead of buying them but I’m terrible at it.
    We’ve been having pretty lovely weather too. Some of my flowers think it’s spring and are starting to come up.

    1. I am so bad about it, I keep borrowing books that I already own to read them faster but I need to bet better about that! I hope spring arrives soon, I am so ready for it!

  2. I am reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King ! Great book !

    Have a great day !

    1. I have only read a few Stephen King books, I am definitely not a person who can handle his level of thriller/horror books! Hope you enjoyed it!
