It’s been such a busy week here so I’m really happy that today is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon. It is wonderful to be spending some time reading again!
The week was happy-busy. Our daughter, now vaccinated, came to visit for the first time since last year. She is an avid gardener, so while she was here, we visited three garden centers for inspiration and specific plants, dug a new flower bed in front of the bicycle/gardening shed my husband has built, and ordered a load of garden blend soil. She was a wonderful help with these Spring gardening projects, and since the sun shone all week, we were able to get those projects mostly finished. Byron and I were sad when she left for home, but look forward to a return visit from her next month.
Today, after such a sunshiny week, it is raining. Perfect read-a-thon weather! My readathon plans are minimal this time. Nothing fancy…no special snacks or anything. Just reading and more reading. I have a number of books I’d like to finish today. I’m in the middle of Jacqueline Winspear‘s latest book, The Consequences of Fear. I’ve borrowed a few books from the library, and my Kindle is loaded, so I’ve got plenty to keep me busy.
I’ll keep a list on this post of the books I finish, so check back later to see what I’m up to.
HAPPY READING, EVERYONE!
Recently finished Jacqueline Winspear’s memoir and enjoyed it.

Andi, I have that on my Kindle and am looking forward to reading it soon. I’m glad to hear you liked it.
How wonderful that you were able to have such a nice visit with your daughter! Hooray for vaccinations! BTW, I love your bike/garden shed. That (square) raised bed/planter is great!

Les, the visit from Jamie was absolute joy! We’ve been talking to her on Zoom twice a week throughout this quarantine time, but it’s not the same as being together. So YES, hooray for vaccines!
I, too, love that raised bed planter! I gave it to myself for Christmas…every year Byron gives each member of the family a bit of money to buy ourselves a present we really want, and then wrap it up and put it under the Christmas tree. It’s such a fun tradition to see what everyone gets themselves. This was my choice!
