It's Monday! What Are You Reading? April 18, 2022 #IMWAYR


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! 


March 21st was the last Monday that I posted one of these posts. By that next Monday, we were already off on our 3-week road trip to see family and friends around the country. Our first stop was to attend Hubs aunt's 80th birthday celebration in Kansas City. It was great seeing family members that we haven't see in a long time. I hope I'm as spry and with it at 80 as Aunt Sandy is now. 

Next planned stop was to see one of my best friends growing up, the maid of honor in our wedding many, many years ago. She figured out that we last saw each other 40 years ago! How does that happen and time fly by like that? It was so wonderful seeing her again and catching up. It was like old times, lots of laughs and reminiscing. 

Our ultimate goal was to land in Tennessee (yep, a long way from South Dakota) to visit our son and his family. They recently moved there from Florida. Our grandson turned 13 while we were there and it was super special to celebrate his birthday with him. I totally loved all hugs and attention from the three grands, our son, and his wonderful wife. It's beautiful there in the Smoky Mountains and I can't wait to go back. I imagine it's spectacular in the fall with the changing colors. 

So this week's post is for several weeks worth of reading, although it's a lot less than my normal reading would have been. With so much to see and do over the last three weeks, my reading life really suffered. I don't even want to know how far behind I am on my Goodreads goal. 😬

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