Six years ago, Bob and I, were with Sharon and Oden on our first baseball trip. In the morning we were in Chicago and walked to a diner to have breakfast, before leaving on the bus for our first game in Detroit. Our waitress greeted us and asked if we were from Detroit. I said, "No, we're from California!" The waitress cracked up, as did several nearby diners. Good times.
A mystery with an ending that you'll never suspect. This is a very good read. Book 56 of my #2018readingchallenge. You may think that I've done nothing but read, no true, life has been very busy, just not Instagramable! #readingchallenge2018 #booksofinstagram #book #mystery
"An exquisite ode to the natural world, a heart-breaking coming of age story, and a surprising" murder mystery. The quote is from the back cover. I had a hard time putting this down, to do other things. The story was very engaging and beautifully written. Book 55 of the #2018readingchallenge #book #read #booksofinstagram #readingchallenge2018
I've read some poetry, lately. Most of the collections weren't for me, but I really liked Half-Hazard, by Kristen Tracy. Books 53 & 54 of the #2018readingchallenge #book #read #booksofinstagram #graywolfpress #poems
Ten years ago, we spent the weekend at the Lake Elsinore Storm ballpark. I'm so glad that I always took lots of photos.
Sunset and it's 104 degrees. We're breaking records! I'm mostly staying indoors, enjoying the AC. This morning I had visitors @c3930family @dardarleslie and @dvick1115. This afternoon I cut out a quilt and tomorrow I'll start stitching. #sky #sunset #skywatchfriday
Fabulous book by a great author. I fell in love with Backman's writing with his first novel "A Man Called Ove", and he's never disappointed me, and I've read all his books. Now I want a green tshirt that says BEARTOWN AGAINST THE REST! Book #51 of my #2018readingchallenge. #book #booksofinstagram #read #readingchallenge2018 #fredrikbackman

Alyson Hagy has been compared to both Kent Haruf and Cormac McCarthy, two of my favorite authors. This is the first time I've read her and I found her writing compelling and powerful. Put this on your list for October. Book #50 of my #2018readingchallenge #book #read #booksofinstagram #graywolfpress #scribe #alysonhagy
#monthlymarker From my trip to Paris, two years ago.
Chick Lit at it's best. Great writing and a very moving story. This is up for grabs, if you're interested leave a comment. #49 of the #2018readingchallenge. #giveaway #book #booksofinstagram #readingchallenge2018 #read
