Weekend reads and Mother's Day...

This weekend is our second Mother's Day as mothers, and it's both exciting and no-big-deal. My baby is really no longer a baby, le sigh, but we'll be spending the day together. We plan to do the Mother's Day Walk for Peace with our church and then a quiet brunch with my in-laws. Obviously, I hope to get in some reading, too.

In addition to reading this weekend, I'm hoping to do some work on my novel. I had my second appointment with my life coach, and it's been wonderfully illuminating and fun -- a mix of therapy and a sympathetic cheerleader.  I'm grateful my wife thought of this gift, and I'm hopeful I can get out of my rut and finish my MS!

I just started C.W. Gortner's historical novel Marlene (and am wearing rhinestones in her honor). What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Happy Mother's Day! A Peace Walk sounds like a perfect way to spend the day.

  2. Ooooh, I had not heard of this book. Adding to my TBR pile immediately! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. I like your rhinestones, I like sparkly and wear sparkly too. Marlene sounds of interest.

  4. I'm reading A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. Happy Mother's Day!

  5. I hope you enjoy Gortner's book. I'm sure it's another winner from him.

  6. Love the photo! I just finished The Children by Ann Leary. Another for my pile of read-but-not-yet-reviewed ARCs!
