It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #1


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 a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in 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!


It has been such an eventful last 4-5 days around here! Last week was shorted because mother nature felt it was a great time to drop some tornadoes on us! We showed her though - lots of damage but no injuries or fatalities.. Points for us!

Now it is on to school things with the kids! Got Liam's Valentines done for his class and now moving onto Jacelyn's Valentines! We picked such cute ones for her class this year! I will post a picture when we have them done.. I am also working on getting some things redone around the house! I am working on getting all of our pictures put onto canvas type things. I am doing some collages and some singles but I think they look much better that way!

January was a good month for books around here. I did not get to every single one I wanted to, but I am aiming to get to ALL the books I have planned for February, as well as throwing in some just because ones - since I always read books that are never on the schedule lol. Now, onto the fun stuff!

  1. I know what you mean about plans for reading changing. It seems like every week there is at least one book that is a surprise arrival. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Wow, tornadoes! We get snow blizzards but I've never experienced a tornado. Yeah, volunteering and helping with school stuff keeps us busy. I was making a platter for teacher appreciation this week.

    Enjoy your reading week!

  4. Tornadoes are scary! Being from the north, I'm used to blizzards and snowstorms, but not sure I'd be able to get used to that. Enjoy your books this week.
