Hello everyone. Happy Sunday Happy November. Happy reading.
I am sending my thoughts and prayers to the people in California with the major fires burning there now. It is so scary to see the news.

I went MIA for a little bit on blog land recently, because I was in Puerto Rico on vacation for one week. See the palm trees above? Yep. This past week was my first week back home and I am still kind of on vacation mode. Going to beautiful, sunny Puerto Rico was amazing. It is funny how I got used to the warm sunny temps (high 80’s) and going to the beach in October, meanwhile back home we had cold Fall temps and shorter days. We spent the days by the pool and the beach as well as sightseeing. We also visited some family.

Happy Sunday everyone and Happy Fall. With the first day of Fall arriving here yesterday this weekend definitely has that sweater weather vibe to it. A big change from the upper 80’s from last weekend. I took the photo above one October a few years back. There is something to be said about the beautiful colors the Autumn season brings with it.

It has been a nice weekend at home watching movies and crocheting for the most part. I’ve been very lazy since Friday evening and I make zero apologies for it. I am feeling much better and kicked that head cold finally, it lingered for a little while there.

Also, thank you all for always stopping in and reading my posts and leaving thoughtful comments even when I am slow as ever returning visits and comments. I appreciate it.

September has arrived so fast it seems and I am not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. Labor Day is here in the U.S. already and it’s nice to have a long 3 day weekend. I really love lazy summer days and quiet summer evenings, I have more energy during this time of year. Well, it’s not quite over just yet so I will definitely be hanging onto summer as long as I can. I enjoy the Fall season too but there is something special about the summer months.

One thing I am dreading about September being here is my morning work commute on Tuesday since schools are back in so I’m back to my 45+ minute drive due to traffic jams. During the off school months it’s just a 20 minute drive. *sigh* I am going to have to start listening to audio books in my car in the mornings, I need to download the app and hook it up to my bluetooth.

Hello everyone. I haven’t done an updates/mailbox post in a few weeks. I’ve been enjoying my summer, I hope you have been as well. I went away on vacation, came back and stood on vacation mode for a few weeks after that. I took the pic above by the lake on vacation, it was so peaceful and I enjoyed the view very much.

We’ve had a rainy couple of weeks here with flash flooding yesterday and I’m hoping the rain lets up. With all the rain yesterday I didn’t go out to run my usual Saturday errands but I finished reading my book so that was good.

I also enjoyed doing this on vacation last month, crochet. There is something to be said for not having any set schedule, sleeping in, staying up late, taking an afternoon nap and soaking in the sun every day.

Happy Sunday, happy May! I can hear the raindrops falling on the windowsill as I type up today’s Sunday updates post. I love that sound.

Anyway, May is here, I like this month alot sans the allergies from the pollen etc. Flowers are blooming and the temps are nice, not sweltering hot just yet. I have had a serious case of Spring fever these last two weeks. I even went jogging with my youngest this week, which was great. We haven’t gone running in so long so it was nice to start getting back into it. I almost forgot how relaxed I feel afterwards. And we took a trip out to the Botanical Gardens in NYC as well, which was really wonderful. I love New York and drive in a several times a year. There is always something interesting to see and do there. The weather was in the 70’s for that and I just soaked it all in, the sunshine, the flowers….

Onto my bookish updates….

Last Week on the Blog:

I posted my thoughts on In Places Hidden by Tracie Peterson, which was very good.
