Welcome to this week's Happy Homemaker Monday. I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.
On my reading pile::: Still plugging through "Gone with the Wind". I only read a little each day (I should say, re-read). It's a REAL book - and I do most of my reading at night, in the dark, in bed - so it will probably be another month or two before I am finished. My favorite book in the world. The writing is descriptive and strong, the characters colorful and endearing, the history jarring and poignant. Everyone should read this book!
Also reading "Firefly Lane" by Kristen Hannah (author of The Nightingale). The beginning of the book takes place in the mid-late 70s. I LOVE all of the references to the clothing, foods, t.v. shows, songs, cars, etc. that I can picture from my time growing up. One of the things in my book challenge this year from Modern Mrs. Darcy is to read three books by the same author. This is my 2nd by K.H. this year.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend::: Finally finished binge-watching "Dance Moms". Also caught up on "Chicago Fire" and "Bring It"
