On A Personal Note

Two weeks ago I mentioned my husband changing our vacation dates. Well everything did not go so well. Both myself and our son got sick mid-way through that we had to drive back home to San Bruno, CA to visit the doctor. We ended up driving back to spend the weekend and a few extra days at Dillon Beach, CA with my husband. We had fun after we all got well, going to the beach and out to a nature park. I got to do lots of reading. YA! I finished six books during my time away. I have been working on writing up reviews, so September will be filled with lots of reviews plus I have several interviews and guest post happening.

  1. How frustrating to be sick on vacation! Though you did get some serious reading done! I love the signed book. I’d have been absolutely thrilled. Have a great week!

    • It felt like Christmas. I love getting books any time of year for any reason. I never expected she would send me all three of her books that are out. Ya never fun to be sick on vacation, but it all worked out and we had a good time. Have a great week and thank you for stoping by. I love hearing from other readers!
      Happy Reading.

  2. What a shame you were sick. Glad you got to get back and enjoy yourselves.
    Have a great week and enjoy your new books.

  3. THat sounds terrible. But, at least you got to go back to the beach. I am really enjoying the background of the sky and the bird in the tree. It’s quite lovely. The sidebar images seem to be sized so that I am only seeing part of them.

    Thanks for coming by my place to visit!

    • Oh it was, but it was great we got to go back and spend some extra days. Thank’s for stoping by. I know how hard it is for bloggers to make the rounds in the blogger world. Glad you like the background. I was looking for something different. The whole picture has a tree with a road that leads to a door in the tree that can take you on a magical adventure…
      It’s different for each on the sidebars I guess. They show for me on the phone they are a little smaller…

      Happy Reading!

  4. Hope y’all are feeling better. Congrats on the wins and the new books. 🙂

      Happy Reading!

  5. I’m glad you finally got to spend time with your family after being sick – so frustrating to spend most of your vacations this way ! Have a great week 😉

    • I dis-like being sick on vacation it’s no fun and it seams to happen every time. It was nice to get away and just hang. I loved all the reading time I got. I was able to read almost a book a day like I use too. ^_^
