Growing To Read Pile/List

Have you looked at some of the books coming out this year? One by one I see/read about all these books coming out this year and a lot of them sound/look so good. I’m going to be in trouble. My to read pile/list already has a backlog and I keep adding to it. I am going to have to stay focused in 2021. So I can hopefully get to a good number of the books on my list. I’m going to have to start a circle back around to list/someday I’ll get to list.

Reading Funk Over?

It took a little Bromance to get me out of my reading funk. Bromance Book Club that is. I finished the 3rd book in the series yesterday and I am super excited for the 4th coming out later this year. If you have not read any of them I highly recommend you do. They are laugh out loud funny.

First Step

Last week I took my first step toward sailing with Mickey again. I got my first round of the COVID Vaccine. Castaway Cay I miss you and I hope to be back as soon as I can.

Reading Funk

For about the last month I have been in a huge reading funk. I have started two different books and I get about 75-100 pages in and I hit a brick wall. I hate walking away from a book unfinished but that is what I have done with both of them. They were both Harlequin Romances so maybe I just need to take a little break from Harlequins. Usually I love a good Harlequin Romance. So this weekend I started a non-Harlequin and we will see how it goes.

My two books I hit a brick wall on…

New Home Town Fan

When I was off work for a week in early December (a little break in between the Holidays). I watched a few episodes of HGTV’s Home Town. Now I have never been a fan of HGTV, so never paid much attention to the shows or their stars. Well let’s just say I am a HUGE fan now. I want to go to Laurel Mississippi. And I have even purchased their book. And I have looked at their online store. It’s that Southern Charm I’m telling you. I love all things southern!

Sorry It’s Been A While

Sorry it has been a while since my last post. The last few weeks have been a little crazy. I had plans for all these great Christmas and end of year/new year posts but then COVID snuck in our backyard. Long story short my aunt tested positive almost four weeks ago, and while we thought she was doing okay and, on the mend, last week the bottom fell out and at and at one point it was not looking too good, but the last two days seem to be steps in the right direction. So, it has been a roller coaster ride since New Year’s Eve. (To give it a name and since we are a Disney Family and we have created a Disney Monster the last week has been the Tower of Terror.)

Because of COVID and the way she was choosing to live her live during COVID, I have not seen my aunt since late August/Early September and then it was only for a small family dinner outside. Hopefully she really is heading in the right direction.

Missing Holiday Tradition During to COVID

This weekend would probably have been the weekend we were on our now annual Disney Christmas Cruise (until COVID and 2020 of course). Which means today would have been our Castaway Cay Day. I am actually missing cruising more than I thought I would. I can’t wait to set sail again once all this is over. I never dreamed I would be a person to love the open sea but on a Disney Cruise I do. I love falling asleep with the waves hitting the side of the ship. And to top it off Castaway Cay is amazing. Hopefully next year I can sail again with Mickey, Santa, and all their friends.

Christmas Movies, Music, and Reads

Christmas Movies:

We are roughly a month into the Christmas Movies so I thought I would share with you the ones I have liked so far.

Hallmark Channel:

🎄 Never Kiss A Man In A Christmas Sweater

🎄 Christmas With The Darlings

🎄 One Royal Holiday

Hallmark Movies and Mysteries:

🎄 The Christmas Doctor

🎄 Deliver by Christmas

🎄 The Christmas Ring

I am not completely sold on the Lifetime Movies but I did like The Yule Blog one.

On a side note: I love White Christmas but have not watched it yet this holiday season. But I have never seen Miracle on 34th Street or It’s a Wonderful Life. Maybe 2020 will have to be the year. 😷

Christmas Music:

I am not a huge fan of Carrie Underwood’s but I have been listening to her new Christmas album some and I will admit she can belt out the hymns. On a side note nobody sings White Christmas like Bing Crosby. Guess you know my favorite Christmas song and album now.
