Weekend Reading 8.12.21

It sure has been hot here in Southern Indiana (I live right across the border from Louisville), with temps in the 90s and humidity so thick it feels like you have to swim through the air. But the peaches are ripe, so it’s a good time to stay inside and eat peach cobbler and iceContinue reading “Weekend Reading 8.12.21”

Weekend Reading 10.30.2020

Fall is well underway now (had over a foot of snow in Colorado earlier this week!) and it’s time for sweaters and blankets and tea and a cozy nook to read a book (see what I did there?). I love pumpkin and made a two ingredient pumpkin cake (see link to recipe below) last week,Continue reading “Weekend Reading 10.30.2020”

Weekend Reading 9.11.2020

Today is a unique day in American history as we remember the victims of (and heroes who responded to) the 2001 attacks in New York City and Washington, DC, as well as the passengers in the failed hijacking of Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

It brought the idea homeContinue reading “Weekend Reading About Fighting Racial Injustice 6.26.20”

Weekend Reading 3.27.2020

With most of us living and working in isolation, now could be a great time to catch up on your reading and writing. There are lots of online writing groups and book groups to join (the book group I lead just moved online for now). I’m trying to “shop my shelves” and am somewhat overwhelmedContinue reading “Weekend Reading 3.27.2020”

Weekend Reading 3.13.20

It’s been a busy week here. My kids have been home with one of their friends on Spring Break, and my daughter cheered at the MVC men’s basketball tournament (last of the season; all others were cancelled!) while my husband, son, and his friend attended the games (So close to being champions, Valpo!). I’ve beenContinue reading “Weekend Reading 3.13.20”
