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. I love this meme, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!
I had a lovely Mother's Day, a phone catch up with Anthony (he's in the middle of his work rotation) and I saw Divergent with Callum. (loved it) Look at the mini hot water bottle I got from Bella for Mother's Day, isn't she just the sweetest, smartest furbaby ;)
Christine and Anthony's bubby is due next month (6 weeks to be exact, not that this Nonna is counting lol)
#bookblogwalkers update #19: Felicia's Book Blog Walkers: I had a 'meh' week, I walked twice but it was half-hearted. Why is it when you most need the happy endorphins from a good walk, you least feel like it?
