It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :) 

What a busy, fun week. I had my niece stay for a few days, we saw The Adventures of Tin Tin at the movies, did some baking and spent quite a bit of time cooling down in the pool. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes on FB or my blog, I had a fantastic day on Sunday for my birthday but it was a whole weekend of laughs with my sister and family down to help celebrate. See my post Happy Birthday To Me for some of the crazy photos :)

Wanted to share the lovely photos we got at dinner on Saturday night. I can't wait to scrapbook these!

I finished 2 books last week (YAY me) and we are camping for a few days this week over Australia Day so I hope to have lots of reading and relaxing time. Tomorrow I'm looking forward to spending the day with my bestie Alaine.

  1. I really want to read By the King's Design and The Crown also sounds good to me. I've also heard really good things about Never Eighteen though it will be a really sad book.

    Your niece looks so much like you-the same lovely smile. I'm glad you had a great birthday and visit with your sister's family and I hope you enjoy your time with Alaine and your camping trip.
