Morning Meanderings… The Books That Arrived The Last Three Weeks!


Have I mentioned how good it is to be home?

I have been back two full days now and I seriously do not even want to stick a toe out the door.  My sleep patterns are off, I am wiped out by 7 pm, but if I go to bed I am awake by 4 am…much my hours of sleep in Florida.  If you missed what I was doing in Florida that kept the odd hours, I posted about that yesterday.

Today, as promised I am posting about the book mail that came into my home during the past three weeks:


Yup.  It is a crazy pile.  However before you panic for me… the left row is all audio.  A few of the books in the middle and to the right are purchased by me.  Some are for release in 2015.

Here is a better breakdown:


The audio tower.  From top to bottom we have:

My Sunday is unfortunately not just hanging at home, warm and cozy with books.  After church this morning a group of us are decorating the library for Christmas.  It is a potluck event so I am making wild rice meatballs and pickle butts.  The pickle butts recipe is going up here later today.  It is easy and tasty!  🙂

  1. It was like an early Christmas opening all of those packages! I have my eye on The Look of Love, Lost and Found, and The Bookshop Book in particular. Happy reading 🙂

  2. wow, I love seeing piles of books, but the thought of the time it takes to read/listen to all of them, I find it overwhelming. Just my reading the HP books has been overwhelming lately! I honestly am looking forward to November being done with this year simply, for me, it’s been WAY too crazy. I hope you get to enjoy ALL these books, Sheila 🙂

  3. I have 1 book left to read for my alphabet authors and titles, 9 left for a book from each of the United States and three left for each of the continents (all mysteries). All to be done by Dec. 31. I’m reading like a house afire. …

  4. My youngest son asked me the other day to make them “pickle thingies.” I said pickle butts? He said “that’s not what they’re called!” I kept telling him they were but he still doesn’t believe me. I can’t wait to show him this post!! (Are pickle butts a Minnesota thing?)

Hmmmm... what do you think?
