Happy Easter, Books, and What’s For Dinner


Happy Easter!  It is the start of a beautiful day here in Minnesota.  It is supposed to get to 72 degrees today!  My heart be still 🙂

I have had quite a group of books come in as of late:


The Here and Now by Ann Brashares (audio)

The Other Story by Tatiana De Rosnay (audio)

Long Mile Home (audio)

Essentialist (audio)

Looking For Me by Beth Hoffman

Owen’s Daughter by Jo-Ann Mapson

The Shadow Year by Hannah Richell

One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern

After Her by Joyce Maynard

Return To The Beach House by Georgia Labockoven

Fallout by Sadie Jones

The Glass Kitchen by Linda Francis Lee

Flying Shoes by Lisa Howorth

Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly Whittenmore




Dinner is going to be with our oldest son Brad who has been back living in town since he finished his time in the Navy in October.  Sadly, College son will not make it home today due to his work schedule, however we will see him in three weeks when he graduates 😀

Dinner will be ham, cream cheese potatoes, sweet potatoes, cottage cheese with pineapple, dinner rolls, and a strawberry cheesecake for dessert with a graham cracker and dark chocolate crust.

Have a wonderful day 😀

  1. Enjoy your day with #1 son. It is going to be nice here in Wyoming too. The sun is shining and expected to be 68. Not quite as good as 72 , but we will take it. Happy Easter.

    ps: quite a stack of books you have there!

    • Thanks – it looks like I will get in a little afternoon reading while Son #1 is working on his car and Hubby (also #1 lol) is working on his nap 🙂

  2. Great dinner–yum! Enjoy your day with your son. I would like to read The Glass Kitchen, but another name jumped out at me: Jo-Ann Mapson. I used to read all her books, but haven’t seen any around in ages. Thanks for reminding me. Have a Happy Easter and hope you spend some time out in the warm weather.

  3. Yummy dinner! I’m having brunch in the early afternoon (yeah, late for brunch), with my family.

    I loved Looking for Me and After Her. One Hundred Names was pretty good, too. Enjoy.

  4. It’s over seventy degrees here for the second time this month. Spring is certainly trying to show its face. 🙂

    Sounds like a delicious Easter meal! I miss our big family gatherings, but these days older folks have passed and the rest have their own commitments.

    Quite a lot of books to read! Enjoy.

  5. Happy Easter! I wasn’t going to make a special meal but ended up buying stuff for one last night. Peach-glazed Ham, collard greens, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots and peach pie or creme brûlée for dessert!

  6. You sure go all out. Glad your son is home safe. I saw your stack and wondered if you have a whole room devoted to books?

  7. Your dinner sounds yummy! We love cottage cheese and pineapple but I’ve never served it with a meal (usually eat it for lunch)! I think I’ll try it with dinner some night!
