Hello all. Ahhh…Spring is finally here. We still have chilly mornings and frost on my windshield but the weather has been getting a little bit milder as the day goes on and March is on its way out. We are supposed to reach the 60’s a few days this upcoming week.

I took an inadvertent blog break these past two weeks (shocker) but I’m playing catch up today. I am afraid to look in my Yahoo mailbox because well, last I checked it said 155 unread emails so then I just closed up the email app and went on about my day lol.

Happy Sunday all. Another busy week has come and gone. We had flurries a few days this week but tonight we are expecting more snowfall, could be up to 8 inches. I feel like this always happens in March. It will start later this afternoon and continue through the whole night into the early morning so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow.

Also of note this past week, we went ax throwing with a group of friends and that was alot of fun. I want to go back again. I had beginner’s luck and got a bullseye on my first throw.

Good morning everyone. I inadvertently took a blog break these last two weeks. Just busy with work and life in general so blogging took the back-burner once again.

So, it is still February. Then comes a long, cold March. Yuck. We had two minor snow storms these past two weeks that resulted in early dismissals from work which just meant driving home in snow and slush and traffic just a few hours earlier than normal. Then having the car covered in a sheet of ice the following morning. Well, enough with the complaining, Spring is around the corner, I can feel it. I want warm weather and nice scenic drives and the beach and food truck festivals….and walks in the park…

Top Ten Tuesday 2/12/19: Favorite Couples In Books

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT topic is Favorite Couples In Books.

Happy cold and snowy Tuesday everyone. With Valentine’s Day around the corner the romantic in me could not resist this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. Romance is my reading catnip, it really is. This became a favorite genre from when I was a tween reading Harlequin love stories featuring cowboys on the ranch sweeping damsels in distress off their feet. My taste in romance novels has definitely changed throughout the years. I enjoy reading about unconventional couples who somehow make it work and I actually prefer bittersweet endings. It was hard to narrow my list down to just ten but here are a few of my favorite literary couples…..

1. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. These two are possibly my favorite literary/film couple of all time. I never get tired of watching GWTW. I love the tension between these two and the way they fall in love.

2. Adrienne and Paul in Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks. I ugly cried the last time I read this one.

Good morning and happy February. I don’t mind February too much, it is cold but it’s a short month and there’s Valentine’s chocolates so that’s nice.

I haven’t posted anything since my last Sunday post but I am just about finished with my current read so I hope to have that review up this week. Today will be spent relaxing at home before watching the game later this evening. We get together and watch with family and it’s fun times, especially the food and the commercials. Aside from that it has been a really cold week with flurries and temps in the negative digits at one point but this week we’re expecting two days in the mid to upper 50’s.
