What I Read in 2018

This year I really did cut back on TV and read more. I followed the Popsugar Reading Challenge and the Around the Year in 52 books. I am happy to say, other than the book I am currently reading, I have finished both challenges. I have read 81 books this year. Some I loved, some …

Reading Historical Fiction

It's interesting. I choose books to fulfill a category in the challenges I am following. I don't choose them because they are about World War II. But I have ended up reading several of those. They have also taught me a lot about the war that they don't teach you in school and even though …

Top Posts for 2017

The washer and dryer fit in a nook in the hallway. The other side of the nook is the master bathroom. This closet even had plastic accordion doors (and came with the washer and dryer). The washer and dryer came out (and sold). Leaky water line everywhere. Which included a fun story about having to …
