I wasn't actually planning a blog vacation this week but this is how it's playing out.
#1 - We went out of town (to visit and hike around Mount St. Helens, which was fabulous).
#2 - It was my birthday yesterday. The big 3-4. (However big you want to make that, that is.)
I couldn't come up with anything clever for the blog in order to celebrate, but if you are new around here and want to catch up, you can see the list of 33 things about me that I posted last year.
#3 - We had a great vacation getaway but we all got sick! So now there are five people lounging about (more or less) with parents trying to grab naps whenever they can manage one.
#4 - Thankfully yesterday we made a birthday stop at Powell's Books and so I am blessed with plenty of reading material. I'll probably just keep on reading this week and resume my 5x a Week posting schedule next week . . . when my head is clear and life is back to some semblance of normalcy.
Currently, these two things are my best friends:
I think I highly recommend Storybound, by Marissa Burt. I'm currently devouring it. I decided to take a gamble on a new-to-me title with some birthday money and so far I think the gamble is turning out in my favor. I'll letcha know on Monday, how's that?
My other friend is nice, but I can't say that I recommend it very highly.
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend and I'll be back next week.
