Finally some books | Weekly Snapshot

Wow, I've been in a blogging blackout for quite a bit. Honestly, it feels extremely unmooring being out of it for this long. The good news is, I have a few posts planned out and am hoping to spend some time today and tomorrow trying to get caught up. At least that's the plan, we'll see what tries to come in the way of that. Renovation updates Not a whole lot to report here. The work in the kitchen had to be paused while we wait for new island cabinets and granite to come along. I am hoping for some progress on the granite this week - if that happens, we will be able to start using everything except the island and that will be a huge win for me. At this point, I am trying to get the house as ready as it can be before my parents travel from India. It will be extremely tight.  Most of the recent work has been in the master bathroom.

Off for a week!

Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to all who celebrate it!

I will be away from the blog until next Wednesday as we are heading down to Miami and Key West this weekend. It will be interesting to step into the plane from 30 F weather and step out into 70 F weather. Not that I am looking forward to it. I love winter any day!

As usual, I am taking more books than I usually finish even in a month but who's to say I shouldn't be optimistic? Or overly optimistic. I may well read Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, simply because I've heard way too much about it and it's due back at the library soon. Which one would you choose to read?

I am very late with this comment, so I just hope you loved all the books! Did you like Kindred?!

I loved Kindred! That's the only book I read on my vacatopm. I wish I had read it sooner for #Diversiverse. I still cannot get the book out of my head and cannot believe it took me so long to get to it.
