Thankfully Reading Weekend is Here

The turkey is a memory, the last few slices of pie no longer look appetizing, the relatives have gone home, the Christmas tree is twinkling, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is playing softly. We had a wonderful day with the in-laws - ate a lot, played games, watched football (Go Broncos!) and laughed!--- especially when we squeezed Dave, I and both kids (ages 17 and 19) into my little kitchen, which is perfect for one person, to do the dishes. Lots of bumping and pushing, but we managed to get everything done - I literally laughed till I cried. What a blessing!
Now that everything has quieted down, it's time to break out the books for Thankfully Reading Weekend. The gals at are sponsoring this fun, no pressure reading event. There's still time to join in if you haven't yet.
So far I've been able to finish up True Blue by David Baldacci and read 50 Things to Do with a Book, a quick read by Bruce McCall. I began Merry Merry Ghost by Caroline Hart this afternoon between putting up the tree and catching a snooze on the couch. I'm hoping for one more evening of card games and giggles before son returns to college tomorrow, so I probably won't make much progress on the reading list, but I wouldn't trade these moments for an entire library.
Hope each one of you had a Thanksgiving full of love and laughter, and God bless you!


  1. You had a terrific weekend! I stayed off the computer for most of the time. I didn't get as much reading done as I would have liked, but I'm relaxing and making small progress.

  2. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! Thank you for participating in the Thankfully Reading Weekend!
