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).

Purchased Books



  1. The Client by John Grisham
  2. Open Season by Linda Howard
  3. Copycat by Erica Spindler
  4. Night Sins by Tami Hoag
  5. Magic Hour by Susan Isaacs
  6. Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler
  7. The Survivors Club by Lisa Gardner
  8. Lake News by Barbara Delinsky
  9. The Switch by Sandra Brown

I did go a little crazy when my cousin took me to a local bookstore. Mmm.. Racks and racks of books, how do you just walk out without buying a single book. Now, I intended to buy only two or three, max five. But eventually, I took out 9! Now I need to figure out a way to take these with me to VA, without exceeding my baggage limit. LOL!

See what others have bought over the last week!

I think books are desperate for a good home, so they latch on to you when you walk into the bookstore. I love Anne Tyler's work. Enjoy!
