It’s Monday and someone turned 7!

It was an exciting weekend – the start of spring break and a 7th birthday!


There was cake (a chocolate cake with strawberry frosting and raspberries inside).

And of course presents. He got some dinobots and books and Pokémon things and clothes and more!

And there were rides. As a birthday treat we took the boys to Great America for the first time and the birthday boy sat on one of those really big roller coasters. It didn’t go upside down (it’s the type on wooden tracks) but it sure looked scary! He later said he was kinda scared cos it went up so high. Even my husband said it was really fast.




All sorts of things – finishing up the Big Family Cooking Showdown (I can never remember the name and had to go look it up!). I love Good Girls! And The Good Wife which I never finished watching and now requires a rewatch from the beginning.


Just downloaded this one


Cake of course!




Tonight, a slow cooker pork stew with five spice, star anise, cinnamon sticks and dark soy sauce.

Last week:

I read:


A Song of Ice and Fire George – R.R. Martin
See what I have done – Sarah Schmidt
Fables Deluxe Edition Book One  – Bill Willingham
The Countess Conspiracy – Courtney Milan

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. Love the expressions! “Really enjoying it! Wheeeee!” and “I’m trying really hard to enjoy it…” I would be the latter.


    1. Funnily I hadn’t heard of The Good Fight until last month when I saw it online somewhere… Unfortunately I don’t have regular TV so I don’t think I can watch that until Netflix or Amazon Prime buys it!
