Good morning and happy Sunday. It is a nice brisk Sunday morning here. We have had some gorgeous Fall weather lately and I’ve been enjoying it. I have had a busy couple of weeks and enjoyed a few days in Gettysburg PA  recently. War history is usually is not my thing but for some reason the Civil War has always fascinated me so staying in Gettysburg has been on my wish-list for some time. I will share a few more pics at the end of this post if anyone wants to see.

Reading-wise I have managed to get some good reading in these few weeks and am finishing up my 3rd book for the month. With the 24 hour read-a-thon next weekend I hope to get another book read then. I have fallen behind on return blog visits, I will be getting to blog hop today and this upcoming week. Thank you all for stopping in and commenting as always.

Happy Sunday. How is it Sunday already? I took a 3 day weekend and headed straight to the beach again. I love going to the beach during August because it is already cooler in the mornings and a little bit cooler into the evenings.

Good morning all. I hope you are having a nice weekend. It has been hot and humid here, on 4th of July the temps hit 90. I prefer this over the bitter cold winter though.

It has been a busy few weeks. I recently got back from vacation. I relished being on vacation. It is always hard getting back to work after time off but that’s life. I mainly did this by the lake for a week:

Good morning blog-land. I’ve been a little MIA around here but I am catching up this morning over coffee. I like quiet Sunday mornings like this when the house is still asleep and I can blog-hop for a little while.
The past few weeks have been full of rainy days but we have also had some beautiful weather in between. This weekend has been gorgeous in the high 70’s so far. I’ve been crocheting, watching shows and reading as well but when the temps are nice like this on weekends, I love being outdoors after spending most of the work-week in my cubicle.

Onto my updates…

Happy last Sunday in April. That was fast. It has been a quiet few weeks around here. I am still slow on my reading but my current read is a good one, so hopefully I can finish that up this week. Also of note, we had free ice-cream at work this week for Bring Your Kids to Work day which was nice. Here’s mine:
