My March Books

I have so many Kindle First books piling up on my Kindle that I decided to take a break from ordering any more books for myself through the local library and focused on reading through all those free books I eagerly ordered each month.  I did have a few library books that I had previously ordered and read through before they were due back but felt pretty proud of myself for reading 6 of my Kindle books!  I enjoyed them all too though my two favorites were When Never Comes and The Heart Echoes. 1.  Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty -- When nine perfect strangers sign up for a health and wellness retreat they have no idea what they're getting themselves into.  Each has their own secrets and reasons for being there and I love how Liane Moriarty reveals little snippets of each of their stories over the 10 days they're at the retreat. 2.  River Bodies by Karen Katchur - - While her father is nearing the end of his life, Becca returns to her hometown to try and

My Favorite Shows Streaming Right Now On Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon

We cut the cord to cable a few years ago and while it took a bit of getting used to we have whole- heartedly embraced streaming all of our shows.  Through Hulu we are able to watch most of our old favorites and we have enjoyed finding Netflix originals and watching entire seasons of shows we missed when they came around on cable TV.  We have a membership to Amazon Prime and have just started watching shows on there too.

Friday Favorites-- The Week Alec Made a Fruit pie

We had such a great week!  The weather was sunny and nice and we were able to get out for a walk or a hike just about every single day this week!  We had a few new school projects and Alec attempted his first ever fruit pie. I had an appointment for a hair cut on Friday.   The boys and I did a very light day of schooling before I left the house and I spent the rainy, dreary (sometimes snowy!) day running errands. I made a beautiful new wreath for our front door on Saturday ; I just love the colors of the flowers! (I found them at Michael's). Sunday I bit the bullet and joined Weight Watchers.  I have been trying pretty uncesssfully on my own using a fitness tracking app to shed some pounds for a good 10 months now and while I am down 9- 10 lbs and keeping it off fairly well I am just not shedding those pounds fast enough and feel myself ready to quit.  I am hoping that the app, the easy to use point system, and the community of fellow WW people will help keep me motivated to wor
