I should learn to shut my mouth!!! Just as soon as I was bragging about our nice weather, it went and turned cold again. Ugh! 30 degrees when I woke up this morning and snow yesterday (if you can believe)? Thankfully, it didn't stick to the ground!! Whew!
Anyhow, I've not been doing much except reading and ordering stuff from Amazon. Bad me! I did send envelopes to my girls though with new books inside:
Then, my online friend, Sue, asked if I would make an envelope for her son who was recently deployed to Afghanistan. I hope he gets a kick out of it!
Naturally, I read a few books. The first one was a thriller and I really (I mean really) liked it. The 2nd was historical fiction which was just okay. I also liked #3, but I love this author anyway and usually can consume his books in record time. Besides, I love that he has very short chapters. lol #4 is a book for mid-grade kids (ages 8-12…grades 3-7). I think I originally bought it for my great niece for the future, but it was in my bookcase containing my "to-reads", so I decided to read it beford giving it to her. I must say that it was a real delight. I gave it 5 stars (the highest goodreads.com rating!)

So that's it! I'm off to the store to buy almond flour. I just discovered (I must be living under a rock) that mostly you can substitute almond flour for regular flour in recipes which will lower the carb count by a ton. I'm going to try it! Have a fun week!
