Checking In

I don’t see myself writing any reviews this week so I figured I’d check in and tell you why! My mom and aunt visited me from Thursday of last week to today – just dropped them off at the airport, *tear* – and the three of us have been enjoying every minute of one another’s company for the six days they were here. We had a GREAT time. Besides the time we spent at the pool, enjoying the sun, cooking delicious food, talking about anything and everything, playing games, drinking wine, kayaking with manatees, and visiting some local spots we enjoy, we spent three days at the beach! Last year we did Daytona Beach for a few days and this year I got a small condo just up the road from there in Ormond Beach. Not far at all from touristy Daytona, but far enough that it was just a little more peaceful, and basically perfect. We really enjoyed our time there, and if you are ever in the area, PLEASE eat at Hull’s Seafood Kitchen – almost everything they serve is locally caught, a lot of times on their own boats, and it’s extremely affordable, not at all fussy, and just delicious. So, so good.

I go back to work tomorrow, and I’m frantically trying to get stuff done this afternoon. Laundry is high on my list as well as a few other little things, but I did want to stop by and say hi, tell you all that I’m around somewhere, and I’ll be back to writing reviews hopefully next week! I have a few books I want to talk about and a few others that were just okay, so you’ll hear about all of them eventually. Until then, I hope you are enjoying your week!

  1. I was lucky enough to enjoy Heather’s company for the past week as well as spend time at her home. Heather and her hubby offered us their hospitality and it just felt like living in Pleasantville. I want to recommend a book that we enjoyed together while lounging in the sun or while sipping wine at a restaurant. The Complete Book of Questions offers 1001 conversation starters that will illicit interesting responses from you and your friends and you will find yourselves involved in delightful controversies and deep connections. Written by Garry Poole from Zondervan publishers, it is also a great tool for team building in the marketplace or small group study.

  2. I know am craving seafood, the real stuff I can’t get in the Midwest. And I just want to say how much I despise laundry. I always forget I’m doing it, and it ends up taking all day to get two or three loads done. 😦

  3. What a wonderful visit!! I hope you had a productive day. I wish I had little get away visits like that with the women in my family. We could all enjoy some quiet time away.
