Porch is cleaned and painted...

I must be getting old. I cleaned and painted my old front porch this week. I can barely move. I am getting ready for all ten grands and my three daughters summer visit. I have been missing them so much.  My heart hurts. None of us are great communicators. Only a few texts, random phone calls, maybe one card. Ugh! I planned on writing letters this year. 0. Poor communication skills.
Besides cleaning house, painting kitchen cupboards and Pinteresting the heck out of same kitchen I have been reading.
I am taking part in two challenges. Pop Sugar and Read Harder. I have read some amazing books but I am struggling with a few categories. A book about tech. An espionage thriller. I don't really want to read...

I read Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple. I felt like I was reading about myself. This girl could not get it together. Ever. Me. Good read. I finished Jonathan Tropper's One Last Thing Before I Go. I liked This is How You Leave Me. This book seems like he was trying to achieve another hit but missed by a smidge. OK read.
Shotgun Lovesongs, The Nest, LaRose, these were the amazing reads.

  1. Beautiful photos of the grands! Where are Lila and Deve??? How is Lila doing? Has been kind of crazy here. Had my annual physical and there was something wrong with just about every test, so I have had to go to more specialist! Heart, lung, obgyn and gastrointestinal! Aging thing really sucks! Will any of your grands be at Marci's outing?
