What I’m up to:

We had a wedding anniversary this week. 33 years! We didn’t do much on the day, but we’re headed to California today to visit my 8-month-old grandniece! As well as my sisters, nieces, and nephew…

My sisters live in a retirement community in Southern California and it’s like an adult playground. Close to the beaches, and lots of great places to eat. I’m looking forward to a few days of sunshine and visiting with my family.

Last week I read:

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was a huge surprise. I thought it would be a cute romance, but it was something completely different. It’ll be one of my best books of 2022. It’s unique, quirky, and highly entertaining. The main character isn’t really likable… but I loved her! Parts of the book are totally unbelievable, but I still believed it all! It’s just such a unique and entertaining story. Bonnie Garmus is a debut author too.

Publication Date is April 5, 2022

    Congratulations on your 33rd Wedding Anniversary, Wendy! 🎉Sounds like you had a lovely week. 💙
    It’s wonderful when a book can surprise you, I hope this week’s reads are just as successful!

  3. I love it when a book is not what I expected but I end up loving it anyway! Your sisters’ retirement community sounds amazing. Hope you’re enjoying the visit & happy anniversary!!

  4. Happy Anniversary, Wendy. Enjoy your trip. I am definitely interested in Lessons in Chemistry, now. Have a great week.

  5. Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a great trip. (BTW, I think AZ has got it right on avoiding upending your life twice a year.)

    • Thank you, Linda. We’ve lived in AZ for 6 years and it’s been wonderful not to have to deal with the time change.

  6. Happy Anniversary Wendy! We too will celebrate our 33rd this year (in September)! Have a great time in California. ☺️

  7. Happy Anniversary!! Enjoy California, I have never been that far west but would love to venture there someday. The time change is getting me today but hopefully the second cup of coffee will help. Have a great week!
