Highlights of the week 

IMG_3193 Our book group met and discussed The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek and there was so much to discuss.

We enjoyed Gage’s last few days of winter break. We took him roller skating for only second time.  And then he and I got to spend Monday just palling around shopping and eating and taking walks and it was really nice.

Finished this week The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson reviewed it here.

Plans for the weekend

We have dinner plans with old neighbors so Gage gets spend time with Emi. She’s in 8th grade and both of her older sisters babysat Gage when he was a baby. Time flies!

I’m linking up with the Sunday Salon this week.

    Roller skating! How fun and I used to be fairly good at it too. I guess they still have roller skating rinks around, but the one I knew about in our area is no longer open. Sounds like you guys had a good week and, yes, there are advantages to being the one to sort the books – ha!

    I love that photo! We got skates for Mouse a couple years ago, but she hasn’t really taken to it. She’d rather play on her scooter. We don’t have a rink near us though, so that limits us to the sidewalks. It sounds like winter break ended on a good note for Gage! I hope you enjoy your current reads and have a great week, Stacy!

    The Graveyard Book is one of my favorites. I read it every Halloween after a patron at the library where I work told me he reads it every year for Halloween. Now I’ve co-opted his idea. I never saw the remake of The Secrets in Their Eyes, but my wife and I saw the original years ago and it was very good.

      What a fun idea! Maybe I’ll save it for October 🙂 I liked the movie but when I looked it up after I saw that the original that your wife watched was better so I may give that one a try.

    What a feast your book club puts out? Perhaps I need to show this to my book group to inspire us all. And the book sounds fascinating, too.

    I would love to be in charge of the donated books at the library. It will be what I might volunteer for someday.

    Our Better Angels sounds like a perfect read for this time of year.

    Have a lovely week, Stacy!

      Our Better Angels is series of stories told about the people who volunteer for and receive houses from Habitat for Humanity. I’m reading a story every morning and it’s helping me start every morning with an extra dose of gratitude. I highly recommend it for that purpose 🙂

      Snacks are a must! I was elected president of our local library Friends group and I take snacks every board meeting even though it’s never been done. I think I’m winning them over, lol. You could try the same thing with your book group!

    Roller skating! I am terrible. Both me and Gabe are just too plain scared to do much skating! But I have taken him a couple of times with friends. ha!

    I love the Graveyard Book. One of my favorites from Gaiman. I really only like his children’s fiction, to be honest.

    I wish I had a local book club! It’s been years since I had a steady one. Looks like quite a feast. Glad you had some good discussions.

    I saw the original Secret in Their Eyes a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. How was the remake?

    We haven’t been roller skating in forever. Actually, I’m not sure if Amber’s ever been roller skating. I hope he mostly had fun.
    The food for your book club meeting looks good.
