Apparently I Read Fast

I've had a cold for over a week now. Not yet nasty, but annoying nevertheless. CC and I had already planned to take off last Sunday and Monday for a weekend trip somewhere, but with a cold looming, we instead staycated all weekend.

Basically, we laid around and did nothing but read and relax. Scouty helped...

Oh the cuteness! Okay honestly, we pretty much stared at the cuteness all weekend. (She was exceptionally well-behaved. There's hope for her yet! Although, by Monday morning she was more than ready for us to be back to work.) Anyway...

So like I mentioned, we read a lot. A lot. A lot, a lot. Did I mention we read? I love Love LOVE to read. It's the fastest way for me to decompress and relax. I don't relax often, so when I have books, all is well in the world.

I told you I'd found a new author, Julie Klassen. Well I had to catch up on all five of her books, so here's what I settled in with (or some of it anyway)...

Sorry it's upside down. Told you I was lazy over the weekend. (For those of you interested in reading these, "The Apothecary's Daughter" was my least fave. The others were pretty awesome. Her newest one, "The Maid At Fairbourne Hall" is the one I read first, and that one was my very favorite.)

I told someone last night that I read four books over the weekend. He stared at me like I was crazy and freakish. Which I probably am, but apparently I read fast. Hubby tells me that, but I don't know.

I did get through the first half of that book in about two and a half to three hours. Maybe I do read fast?

The one real thing we did over the weekend was catch up with these two lovely ladies (sorry for the uber-bright photo. And the random man in the background.)

When my very beloved small group leader moved to England years ago, CC prayed that God would provide not just one but two Godly ladies to take her place as mentor and wise counsel in my life. God as always, answers prayer, and here we have Lyn and Catherine. God is amazing and these two women are perfect examples of His provision.

So what've you been up to? I've been very sadly out of the loop lately. Lots of catching up to do.
