What I Read Last Week

Posted July 28, 2014 by Tracy in Features | 0 Comments

I’m back!

Yes, I’m back from vacation and back at work. I must say it was a bit hard getting out of bed early this morning. Sleeping in while on vacation totally spoiled me! Despite that it’s good to be home. My oldest daughter is on a mission trip with our church so it’s quiet around the old homestead. It’ll be even quieter as my hubby leaves tomorrow night for his annual trip to the Sturgis bike rally for a week. One day we’ll all be home together again! 🙂

The trip was a success, that’s for sure. It was wonderful seeing my family and seeing their new houses. Though the driving drove me a bit batty it was wonderful seeing all of the different states we drove through and of course spending hours upon hours with my youngest. She was a great traveler and made the trip that much more fun.

I’m sorry I didn’t announce the winner of the Where the Horses Run giveaway previously but the winner is:
Violet D. Congratulations!! I’ll send you an email soon to get your snail mail address so look for that in your inbox.

I didn’t get very much reading done but I did finish two whole books! Woohoo! lol!

The first one I read was Rogue with a Brogue by Suzanne Enoch. This was a star-crossed lovers story if ever I’ve read one. We have two clans that hate each other the McLawry’s and the Campbell’s and two people who seem to be falling in love – Arran MacLawry and Mary Campbell. The story was a good one and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ll post a full review tomorrow. 4 out of 5

The other book I read was Virgin by Radhika Sanghani. This is not a romance but more of a new adult chick lit book. It is about Ellie who is 21 years old and a virgin and she tells us about her relationships with both men and her friends and focusing heavily on getting rid of her “V-Plates” (as she describes it). I wasn’t a fan of the MC and didn’t care for a lot of what she did and how she acted. I’ll post a full review later this week. 3 out of 5

And She’s Off…

Today the girls and I are off on a vacation with my dad, niece and eventually we’ll meet up with my mom.  We’re headed off on another train trip and this year we’re on our way to Chicago.  My parents, especially my dad, love trains so a large portion of their vacations are spent on the train as that’s the joy for them.  While I like riding the train I could fly and be just as happy! lol  
So first we’ll start off from LA Union Station and head to Portland, Oregon.  Then we’ll change trains and head on over to Minneapolis, Minnesota where we’ll pick up my mom (who’s been at a conference there) and then make our way to Chicago, Illinois where we’ll meet my sister.  We’ll spend 3 days in Chicago and then I will fly home.  My kids, my niece, my sister and my mom will all take a train to Kansas City, Missori where my sister lives and spend 4 or 5 days with her and then take the train home.  
Here’s our route:
I will try to stay in communication via my hubby’s laptop but I’m not sure when I’ll have a wi-fi connection.  I’ve got a couple of posts ready for you all but I won’t be able to comment right away.  
Have a great week and don’t get into any trouble.  Oh wait, I forgot who I’m talking to…get into as much trouble as you want! lol
