This has been a bit of slow week for posts on my blog as I have been fighting a bad cough and just have not had the energy to post much. I am doing a bit better but still have a nagging cough. I have had a slow reading week as well as I just haven't been able to focus much on reading. I am currently reading Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton a charming story that I am enjoying very much. The quaintness of the villages and characters as well as reading about life in England has drawn me in. It's the perfect book to read with a cup of tea or coffee by my side. My review will be posted this week.
My son doesn't start school until after Labor day this year so we have some last minute school shopping to do this week. He desperately needs a haircut as at 10 years old he likes the long hair look and I have to call it a "trim" not a haircut! He also needs a new pair of tennis shoes and he is so impatient shopping for them so I don't particularly look forward to that. Hopefully, we'll fit in a few fun things this week and if the weather cooperates, a few more visits to the water park.
I just made a pan of brownies to take to a BBQ even though it's raining outside. The house smells delicious and my husband and son are so tempted to dig in to those brownies. I will have to guard them for later!
I've been remiss in sharing some wonderful awards that were passed on to me:
