Monday Memes


I'm baaaack.  Aprroximately 30 minutes ago, we finally had our power restored.  My family is safe and sound, which is what is most important and what I am thankful for.  I was quite nervous about my son in CT, it's his first house and is surrounded by a lot of land and very large trees and thankfully he escaped from any damage except for a tree that fell across his street blocking access..  We did have slight property damage to the fence around the pool, which can be fixed and is minor.  The main inconveience was being the power, however, I was able to occupy myself with a charged Kindle and a portable booklight.  Matter of fact, read 3/4 of a book.  Hubby, on the other hand, was quite restless without the tv remote in hand.

I want to thank all for the well wishes and prayers.  There are still many that are facing challenges from the aftermath of this storm, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

 Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

I am glad to hear you are well after the storm. I am still waiting to hear from a friend in Connecticut. I am hoping she is just without power and is okay otherwise. I hope this week will be a quiet one for you!
