It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning to you! Thanks for dropping by. We had a great weekend filled with playing in the SNOW! It's the first (and hopefully last) of the year. Unfortunately, being snowed in doesn't mean I got to sit by the fire and read a book. I have two young kids, after all. But I did get some reading done this week.

What Difference Do It Make? by Ron Hall, Denver Moore and Lynn Vincent ~ a follow-up to Same Kind of Different As Me

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.
