What I’ve been up to?
This post is for 2 Weeks as last week I was in Alabama at a wedding and didn’t post a Sunday Post last week.
I spent 6 days in Huntsville, Alabama to attend my Niece’s wedding, and it was a wonderful time! It was a great time for our family to gather and celebrate my Niece’s new life. Our days went like this: A long leisurely breakfast with family — a short break — a long leisurely lunch with family — a short break — and a long leisurely dinner with family! In between, we visited the Space and Rocket Center and attended a beautiful and fun wedding. And we had some delicious southern and soul food.
It was a lovely week, and I got to spend quality time with my family, especially my 2 grand nieces ages 18 months and 6 months (sisters!). The wedding was beautiful and it was so heartwarming to see my niece and her new husband so happy. There wasn’t any drama, and I can’t remember seeing so many happy people all in one place.
Snow, Snow, and more Snow!!
Just before we left for Alabama we got 12″ of snow!! And then after we got back we got a blizzard with a few more inches of snow and 60mph wind gusts. Then on Thursday evening, another 3″ of snow. And we’re supposed to get another snowstorm Saturday night (last night as you read this). Plus there are 2 more snowstorms scheduled for next week! I had to find a break between storms to find a time to pick up groceries.
Next week, I’ll be heading to Southern California to help my sister recover from knee surgery. I’ll be so happy to escape all this snow!
Also, I’ve been having blog issues, especially with comments. I’ve been playing whack-a-mole with my website! Once I get one error resolved others keep popping up! So, if you see something wonky, please go ahead and let me know. I’m still working on things, but I hope to get it all resolved soon.
Last week I read:
I didn’t read much when I was away. This list is for the last 2 weeks. My favorites were Off The Map and Go As a River. The others were excellent as well.
All three of these audiobooks were outstanding! I loved all of them.
Next week I hope to get to:
I don’t expect to read much next week as I’ll be helping my sister. But, I have a long drive to California, so I should get some audiobooks done.

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!
I’m reading this a week late because for some reason, I just can’t keep up. It sounds like you had a wonderful time in Alabama with family. That is the best way to spend time, with family. Wow, that is a lot of snow. I am assuming you are in California now and even they got snow. I hope you loved Remarkably Bright Creatures if you have read it. It was one of my favourites for 2022.
That’s a lot of snow to get! We got a little here last week, but nothing like that! I bet it was nice to sneak away to Alabama and escape it.
It was nice! Thank you, Deanna
Sounds like you had a wonderful week away. Good luck with your sister’s recovery. We also had a lot of snow, but not quite that much. It’s sunny today. I’ve really enjoyed the Veronica Speedwell series. Have a great week.
Looks like you have a great list of books for the week!!
Good luck to your sister! I hope her surgery goes well. It’s nice you’re helping her out. 🙂
Thank you, Lydia!
A local friend of mine just recommended Remarkably Bright Creatures. Hope you enjoy it as much as she did! And I’m curious what you will think of The Queen’s Price. It’s very fantasy. I love that you’re branching out. Glad you had a wonderful time in Alabama! Can’t believe you have so much snow. We’ve been having spring weather here. Have a great week!
I just finished Remarkably Bright Creatures and I loved it.
So glad you had a great time with family at your niece’s wedding… and air and space museums are always so very out of the world!! All the books you have featured are so very appealing . (thankfully a few of them are already on my TBR so will be adding ‘only’ the rest of them).. Here is hoping SoCal gets warmer (as it has been snowing all over California (very unusual for us in the bay area and also in SoCal this past few days)…
I love visiting air and space museums and other types of science museums in general. Looks like you had a nice week in Alabama with a lot of good food. Nice to hear your niece’s wedding turned out well. We’ve had snow, snow and more snow (still snowing) and we’re getting more. No winds though, thankfully.
Long car rides are wonderful for audio books. I’m looking forward to Off the Map. Hope you enjoy your time in SoCal while taking care of your sister.
Thank you, Rachel
You were near me! I live in Huntsville! I’m glad you had good weather while you were here and that you had a good trip! Have a great week!
Oh wow, I didn’t realize you live there! It’s such a pretty city and everyone was so nice.
Wow! That’s a lot of snow! And your Huntsville trip sounds fabulous. Espcially all the eating! 🙂
The eating was so good!! Thank you, Greg
Hooray for all the quality family time while in AL! With all that snow I bet heading to CA will be a welcome break. I hope you’ll enjoy Before I Let Go. I truly loved that one.
I’m about halfway through Before You Let Go and I”m loving it!
I am glad you had such a great time in Huntsville and at the wedding! Although I haven’t gotten snow where I am, it is a lot lower than usual and come close. The rain has been nonstop though. I hope you are staying warm. I hope you have a safe drive home and enjoy your audiobooks!
Thank you, Wendy!
The wedding sounds fun! Sorry about the snow. I hope the weather in Alabama was good. I haven’t noticed any problems on your website, but if I do I’ll let you know.
Thank you, Bonnie
I’m glad you had such a wonderful time on your Southern trip. There is nothing quite like Southern cooking and hospitality. I would have been scared to return home through all that snow, but you clearly made it safely. Enjoy your warm time in CA. I hope the surgery and recovery are both smooth as can be!
Oh, we returned home just before the snow, so the roads were fine. Thank you!
Could you please ask your sister to reschedule her surgery for next month and then me and you and Marilyn can drive to SoCal together? LOL Just kidding. Hope everything goes as smoothly for her surgery as it did for the whole wedding trip!!!! Sounds like a great time, all the leisurely meals with fun stuff in between!
I would love to drive to So Cal with you and Marilyn!
Yay for travels and a good time at the wedding! That is a lot of snow. We (in Ohio) are apparently having a milder winter, but March is a crap shoot, you never know what you are going to get. Have a great rest of your weekend!
The snow has been relentless, but I like it better than a dry winter.
Sounds like you had a fabulous time in Alabama, Wendy – congrats to your niece! I’m guessing you’re getting pretty sick of snow by now, lol.
Yes, the snow is a bit much. But sunny So Cal will cheer me up. (even if it’s rainy. 🙂
Your trip sounds lovely and perfect! You guys have been getting tons of snow and I hear California has been getting a lot too! Hopefully not the part you’re visiting to help your sister. People don’t understand how nice long drives are when you listen to audiobooks. I invited my mom to go with me to a library conference in April so she can just relax and have some time away from my stepdad now that they’re both retired and I know she’ll need it. But I’ll miss the audiobook time I get on the way there and back. Hope you have a good week!
Yes, I love audiobooks when I’m alone in the car. When I’m with my husband, we talk so I don’t listen.
I hadn’t heard of Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. How interesting! Enjoy your upcoming reads!
Thank you, Jolene. Huntsville is home to Space Camp. I’ll agree that it’s an unexpected place to find a space center.
Sounds like you had the perfect time in Alabama Wendy! Have a lovely trip to California and I hope your sisters surgery goes well. Enjoy your Sunday and good luck with your traveling!🤗⛄☕📚💜
Thank you, Susan.
I’m glad you had a fun trip and I hope you can enjoy some of your time in southern California.
Thank you, Kristi!
I’m glad you had a great visit in Alabama, it sounds wonderful. And cool rocket pics! Wow, that’s alot of snow, Happy travels to California and happy reading!
I’m glad you had a great stay making new memories in Alabama! Oh no about your blog – how frustrating for you. We got snow overnight but hopefully it will go away soon as the temperatures warm up later today. I think Southern California got some of the white stuff too! Have a wonderful week ahead.
Thank you, Jodie! My niece told me that it’s “freezing cold” in California! But, it’ll be warmer than here.
I definitely don’t envy you with all of that snow. Your website comments certainly aren’t quite right at the moment as i’m typing into a very small space. I really loved No life for a Lady and Nightingale too. Enjoy your trip to California.
Thank you, Janette.
Amazing to have so much snow! And there might be snow in California next week too!
Have a good week.
Wow, my sister sent me a photo of the hills around her and the snow level is super low.
The Nightingale is still languishing somewhere in my TBR. I’ll have to dig it out.
I just finished it and it was very good. But, it’s a long one!
Glad you had a lovely time at the wedding and a lovely time in Alabama, hope you a have a great week this week 💕
Thank you, Jenny!
Looks like you had a great time in Alabama. All fantastic titles, I hope you enjoy your next read.
Thank you, Yesha
The Space and Rocket Center looks really cool! I’d love to visit something like that someday. Hope you’ll have a great new week coming.
It’s a very cool place. I hope you get to visit there someday soon
