It's Monday! What Are You Reading? March 18, 2019


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's an opportunity to visit other blogs and to comment on their reads. And ... you can add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

**************************************

I was born an raised in Nebraska and if you've seen the news, you know they are going through some major flooding right now. Fremont, where we lived after we were married and where we still have family, is completely landlocked with no way in or out. The videos and pictures are devastating. I can't even imagine and the clean up and recovery from this is astronomical to think about. #NebraskaStrong

On a more positive note, we finally were able to have the grandkiddos this weekend for a sleepover. Their parents were sooooo appreciative and asked when we could take them again. 😍😍 

The sun is out and our massive snow piles are starting to melt. I am so ready for the weather to get nice so I can get out on my patio. That's my favorite place to read, when I can. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a good week. Happy reading!

  3. I didn't know about Nebraska's flooding. My grandparents grew up there. I will have to see if their loved ones are okay. I'm glad you got to spend time with your grandchildren! My kids have never stayed overnight at their grandparents' house.

    1. The flood damage is so disheartening to see. I love our sleepovers and love that they all live close by and that I can be a part of their lives. I'm sorry that your kids are missing out on that. Thanks for stopping. Have a great week.

    1. We have some relatives who are trapped in their town but relief has been coming through for them. I tried another book by Smiley and couldn't get into it. I'm enjoying this one and didn't realize it was a trilogy. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.
