It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday once again! My birthday was this Saturday and I had a really nice birthday weekend. At work Saturday morning, I had cake and a round of Happy Birthdays. My mom and I had lobster for dinner. Sunday, I had a handful of friends over for a backyard barebecue – social distancing edition! It was really nice to see some friends I haven’t seen in months (other than on Zoom/Facetime). There was a little miscommunication though because we ended up with FOUR cakes! I guess there’s no such thing as too much cake.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day if you live in the United States! Hope everyone had a good week. I’ve been trucking along on my Goodreads 2020 challenge – I’m at 35 books of 75. Doing Monday updates has been a good way to keep me accountable to my reading goals. Until I started posting on my blog with weekly reading updates, I never gave much thought to planning my reading. Though I always have an insurmountable TBR, I always end up reading what appeals to me in the moment. I still struggle with that and sometimes books take precedent if they are an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) for review or a library book with a return date, but it’s kind of cool to dedicate time to a book in advance. Do you plan your reads?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Hello again! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve been back at work, so I’ve had a bit less time to read, but I’m enjoying socializing with my coworkers and customers again. I can be a very introverted person and the time off has been a gift in some ways – for me to pause and get back to the things that bring me joy. I’ve been doing more writing, blogging and crafting than ever! But I still enjoy the occasional interaction. I really miss my Wednesday Writer’s Guild meetings at Barnes & Noble. Alas, Zoom meetings just don’t hit the same…

Photo Prompt Friday: From the Deep

In honor of the month of MerMay, I thought today’s photo prompts should be inspired by the Merfolk. Alternately thought to be alien, strange, beautiful, dangerous, dark, alluring and mysterious, these creatures of the deep have long inhabited the human consciousness. In fact, the earliest legend of mermaids was recorded in Syria in 1000 BC…
