The renovation finally | Weekly Snapshot

I've been having quite a few busy weekends and haven't been able to post often on Sundays.  Renovating I have dropped a teaser here a few times but here's the scoop finally - We are renovating a big chunk of our main level. We've been planning this for the past 6-7 months. It started as a kitchen renovation project but now includes flooring through the main floor and master bathroom. We will have the renovation crew start tomorrow and depending on when all the materials get in, it could be 1.5-3 months before they are done. I just hope the flooring is done quickly because then we can reclaim some of the main floor back. Not having a kitchen for 2-3 months is going to be very challenging but we've been promised a small work area on the main floor where we can cook early morning and later in the evening. But I'm thinking more about the little things - making coffee while I work, taking care of the day to day activities - the upstairs and the basement can be used b

So, Rainwater won the battle of the books today! I managed to convince myself that if I didn't get to Not my Daughter, I can still place it on hold and read some other time, hopefully when all my holds do not come together. (Speaking of holds, I have 3 new holds available now. So I doubt there will ever be a situation when all my holds cease to come together)

nice blog and nice Teaser! my teaser is from An Unfinished Score by Elise Blackwell http://tinyurl.com/yckvdhj
I LOVED this story. So different from the old Sandra Brown.
Interesting teaser! Enjoy!

I just think you're lucky that you're allowed to place holds on so many books. My library limits me to three. Three! Luckily, my hubby doesn't use his card too much, so I can put three more on his, but that still feels like a ridiculously low number.

Diane, I loved it too!

Jennifer, I can put only 8, but yeah, 3 sucks! 6, too. I guess for people like me, anything above 5 is too much, considering all my holds tend to come together! Maybe its the library's way of making us feel less guilty, in the event we can't read a book. ;-)
