What I’ve been up to:
As you read this we should be driving to Colorado to go camping for a few day. I’ve booked a campground just west of Durango, CO.
Here is a photo of our third dog, Mandu. Mandu is a Korean word for dumpling, my daughter named him. When my son rescued him, he was skinny, and he had a skin condition, but now, he’s got beautiful thick fur, and he’s a tiny bit chubby 🙂 He’s a nervous dog and doesn’t like loud noises or thunderstorms. But, he’s very loving and sweet. He’s the first one to greet me when I come home, and he always wants to be close by. Unlike his sister and brother, he’s never been in much trouble and he seems to know he has a pretty good life. I have nicknamed him “In and out burger” because he constantly wants to go outside and back inside all day long.
Last week I read:
I had an excellent week of reading, all the books were very good!
Next week I hope to get to:
What I Watched:
Along with most of the world, I watched the news about the very sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
My mother and father were both born and raised in England, then moved to Canada after the war. They met married and had 4 children in Canada before we all immigrated to the US when I was a small child. Anytime the royal family was on the news, my mother would have the TV on and we’d all watch. My mother was the same age as the queen and just loved her, as we all did.

Have you read any of these books? What are you hoping to read this next week? What have you been up to last week? Comment below!
You do a much better job of blogging while on vacation than I do! I’m just now catching everything up!
I hope you enjoyed your camping trip! Did you have nice weather in Colorado? Mandu is beautiful! I love his nickname. LOL All of your reads this past week look so good! I want to read them all! I loved Rules of Magic. I need to get to the next in the series. I was sorry to hear about the passing of the Queen. I remember being so excited to see her in person when she visited California many years ago. It was from a great distance, but it felt like such an honor. I hope you are having a great week!
Eye-ing your Christmas books. I need to decide which to put on my tbr for this year. Have a good week 🙂
Mandu is such a great name and he has such a sweet face! I hope you are having a wonderful week!
Mandu looks like a very good dog!! 😀
Mandu is a great name and he’s so cute. 🤗
The Rules of Magic was my favorite in the series! I am happy to know you are loving the books. 😊
Rescue dogs are so awesome! It was interesting to read of your family’s life journey–very international! Enjoy your camping trip!
Looks like you had a great reading week. Sarah Morgan is so dependable for a good story – and always has the prettiest covers. 🙂
Mandu is adorable! 😀 I hope you have a great week camping. Colorado is beautiful!
Thank you! It’s great so far!
Happy camping, Mandu is so cute! That’s wonderful he found such a great home. It was nice reading your family story about the Queen.
I hope you have a great trip and it’s not too hot.
Thank you, Anne. So far we’ve had perfect weather.
I’m looking forward to When in Rome!
It was good! I enjoyed it.
I hope you are having a fabulous camping trip!
Mandu is a great name, he looks happy 🙂
The Frederick Sisters looks appealing
Wishing you a great reading week
Thank you, Shelleyrae, so far, we’re having a great time camping.
I just love Mandu’s great big smile. Hope you have a great camping trip with good weather, Wendy!
Thank you, Teri!
Mandu looks lovely. That cover of ‘Well, that was unexpected is cute. Happy reading!
Thank you, Yesha!
I hope you are enjoying your camping trip, Wendy. We were all very sad about Queen Elizabeth II here, but she certainly had a wonderful, long life. She will be missed for sure. I will be reading Sarah Morgan’s book this week, as I am on the blog tour. I will watch for you review of The Thread Collectors. Have a wonderful week.
Yes, she sure lived a long time and had a good life.
My dad’s parents migrated from England to Canada where he was born as well. His two older siblings were born in England though. It’s sad about the Queen. She’s seems to have been a very steadfast ruler looking out for the good of her people. As much as she could anyhow.
I’ll be reading that Sarah Morgan soon too. Can you believe we’re already getting Christmas reads?
I think a lot of people emigrated to Canada from UK, especially after the war. So interesting. It’s crazy that we’re reading Christmas books already
Awww, that’s a sweet doggo you have!
We also watched coverage of the queen’s passing. What an incredible lady she was. It’s easy to see why people loved her so much.
THE THREAD COLLECTORS is one I really want to read. I have an e-ARC—I just need to actually read it. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
I hope you enjoy The Thread Collectors!
Mandu is lovely! I used to have a cat that met me at the door every afternoon when I got home from work. Happy camping and hope you have some good reads this week!
Thank you, Jolene. I hope to enjoy the camping, but I probably wont read much!
Mandy sure looks like a sweetie! I’m so happy that he has improved so much since coming to you ❤️. Have fun camping in Colorado!!! I bet you’ll have some gorgeous photos!
Thank you, Tessa!
Gorgeous dog. I like the Mermaid’s Point books, but all the other ones are new to me.
I hope we both enjoy the new Mermaid Point book
Have a great time Wendy. I love Mandu…..he is so beautiful. Have an awesome week and I love your history with the Queen 🤗📚💜
Thank you, Susan! I hope. you have a great week too!
Sounds like a great week all around!
Thank you, Cindy, it was a great week.
Mandu is adorable.
Have fun camping!
Thank you, Lydia. I think so too.
Happy camping this week! And Mandu is so cute. 🙂
Thank you! And I totally agree about Mandu!
Mandu is beautiful!
As for the Queen, my mother really likes the royal family and was sad to see the Queen pass. I think most of the world will mourn her.
I agree, Carrie, it’s so sad.
Aw that’s cute about your dog! He looks like a sweetie. 🙂
So sad about the Queen.
Have a great trip!
Thank. you, Greg. He is a sweetie for sure.
Have a great time camping in CO!
Thank you, Deanna!
Not sure if my last comment went through! I just wanted to say I’m jealous of your trip! Have a blast! Mandu is adorable. Do you take the dogs camping with you? When in Rome is on my TBR, and I can’t wait for the new Jesse Q. Sutanto book either! Have a great week!
I hope you enjoy When In Rome! It was pretty good!
Jealous of another camping trip, have a great time! Mandu is adorable! Do you take the dogs camping with you? When in Rome is on my TBR, and the new Jesse Q. Sutanto looks good too. Have a good week!
We do not take the dogs with us. Technically they belong to our son, and they are large dogs. We have a large yard at home that they love, so my son and daughter take care of them when we camp.
I hope you have a wonderful time in Colorado! Mandu is such a pretty job – thanks for sharing a pic!
Thank you, Nicole.
Enjoy Colorado! Your dog is super cute!
Thank you, Kristi!
I hope you enjoy your time away Wendy! Your dogs are all beautiful. I enjoyed hearing about your past – especially that you were born in Canada! Have a wonderful week ahead.
Thank you, Jodie. I’m proud to have been born in Canada! 🙂
Good to know Sutanto has another book out. I like her auntie series. Have fun camping in CO!
Yes, I just finished it and it was excellent. Have a great week!
Mandu is gorgeous 💕 Our previous dog was a rescue…I think they know when they’re on to a good thing 😉 Have a lovely week.
I do too, Cathy! He knows he has a nice comfortable life with us.
Hope you have a lovely time away & a great week 😊
Thank you, Jenny
