Hi friends? What are you up to this holiday weekend? I’m taking advantage of the long weekend to visit my mom and see the new town where she lives. As much as I love New York City, I always love when I get a break from the noise and craziness. It’s nice to spend time with family and relax. This morning when I woke up, I got into bed with my mom like I did growing up and we talked for an out. Later, mom made me cheesy eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast. and I spent the rest of the morning watching the Kardashians and working on my grading/student feedback. I’m grateful for this time.
As per usual, I packed a lot of books for the long weekend. I brought Futhermore by Tahereh Mafi, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, and Shut Out by Kody Keplinger. In these weird personal & political times, I’m enjoying my retreat into the worlds of other people’s books and my own. Crossing my fingers for a productive writing and reading weekend, along with good family time.
