Babysitting Grandchildren

Mike & I got to babysit our grandson last night. 
Here he is helping me water the lawn . . .

and himself.  I know, he shouldn't be drinking from a hose...but he was having so much fun.  He really, really loves water!

A Quiet House

Our house is very quiet tonight...too quiet.
I've been waking up to this guy...

At night I come home to his happy face...

...sometimes he wears my lipstick on his little forehead.
Those red marks on his forehead are the evidence of one of those kisses.
He's at a Lovell family reunion this weekend.  Yes, the house is too quiet!

Begotten with Love: Every Family Has Its Story

I have been having fun reading. I usually read about two or three novels a month. One book is always the book chosen by the book club group I'm part of. I joined Goodreads about five years ago thanks to my niece, Shawna. About a month ago I discovered that Goodreads had a tab marked "giveaways" where authors or publishers offer just released or newer books to readers in exchange for hopefully a book review. The above book is one that I won, received last Friday and finished reading yesterday. I really enjoyed this book. It was full of real people’s lives and was refreshingly honest.

If you want a way to keep track of the books you read, why not join Goodreads? If you're a member, please add me as one of your friends. I love seeing what my friends and family read.

Right now I'm reading "Exodus" (monthly book club read) by Leon Uris and "Pirates" by Celia Rees which so far is really well written and an interesting historical fiction. 

What's your favorite book(s)?
Happy Reading!
