January 8, 2019: Bookish Thoughts

I’m about halfway through ‘City of Ghosts’ by Victoria Schwab. It’s a pretty good story…although it’s a ‘middle grade’ novel, t has enough paranormal activity to keep me interested. I hope to be done reading it by this weekend.

I want to pick up ‘The Oyster Thief’ by Sonia Faruqi next. It’s not available at my local library, so I made a request for them to carry it. I should hear for them in a couple weeks. Hopefully they’ll carry it. I love frequenting my library.

January 1, 2019: Notes on New Year’s

My New Year’s celebration with Andy took us to Andover, NJ. Since I wasn’t feeling well a couple days earlier, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to take part in the festivities. Thankfully I got plenty of rest on Sunday, and I felt much better in time for New Year’s Eve. It was a great time hanging out with our friends Allyson and Tim. I first met them about six years ago at a birthday party, and they’re both very good people.

We had such an enjoyable time hanging out at Allyson’s Andover home. It always has such a festive, Christmas-like feel during this time. I enjoy admiring the decorations, and sitting before the fireplace whenever we come over during the winter months. We also have fun watching the New Year’s Eve specials on television. It’s never a dull moment!

December 25, 2018: Family Time/Reading Update

Today is very special, since Christmas is a holiday to spend valuable time with family. Life can be extremely hectic, yet for a couple days we can spend time with cousins and relatives, and share special moments together.

Along with the time spent with relatives, I also have time to plan my reading time. I’m nearly done with Nine Perfect Strangers, and it’s been quite an interesting story. I will have that review posted close to the end of the week. I’m looking forward to beginning my next story, which centers around Christmas (I know, after Christmas Day…my time management is out the window!). I’ll see where my mood takes me 😊

December 18, 2018: Appointments and Plans

I took care of my physical last night. There was some confusion at the beginning, and I needed to show proof of confirmation since I was told that I had no appointment. The issue was cleared up in a matter of minutes.

Andy and I told our good friend from Andover that we’ll visit her on New Year’s Eve. She spends time in Andover (where she grew up) to visit family on certain holidays. Since I work that day until 3pm, it will make visiting them at Andover easier than Harrisburg, PA (where she lives). That’s an over 2 hour commute.
