In comparison to last weekend, the Shannon clan is taking it easy this weekend. No soccer, no piano, nothing – it is heaven. Today is supposed to be 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, meaning we might be able to enjoy the outdoors today for the first time in several weeks. That means reading outside – we shall see if it occurs.
The kids celebrated their last day of school this week. They get a few days’ rest before summer activities start. There is no such thing as a rest for the weary, and no such thing as a summer vacation for kids’ activities it seems. Piano lessons continue this week, and Connor’s first cross-country practice starts on Monday. Holly’s summer dance practice starts in two weeks, and we suspect soccer practices will be starting up again in another month. We are going to need a vacation from our summer vacation, I fear.
Did you catch the excitement of Audiobook Week? Check out the main site for all the goodies! If you are pinched for time, check out my various thoughts on audiobooks:
I also managed to post reviews of the following this week:
- Fool Moon by Jim Butcher (audiobook)
- The Art of Forgetting by Camille Noe Pagan
- Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde (audiobook)
As for reading, I managed to finish four books this week.
- The Convert by Deborah Baker
- The House at Riverton by Kate Morton (audiobook)
- The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair
- The Tiger by John Vaillant
There is going to be nothing but reviews for the month of June, and at this rate, well into July. It’s a good problem to have, right?
Speaking of reviews, I have a few to write, and I want to make sure I also enjoy some downtime today as well. Have a great Sunday! Happy reading!
