Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I've decided to do this meme only once a month. I did post once in the second week of January, which can be found here. In addition, I received the below books this month:




  1. Going with Gabriel by John Grisham (Goodreads FirstReads program)
  2. The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
  3. Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
See what others have bought over the last week!

The Lace Reader has been calling my name for quite some time now. I suspect I'll have to buy it!
