I must not be well. I was in a bookstore yesterday with permission to buy books. That doesn’t happen often. I have a stack of books in my “to read” pile. I’m currently reading The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay. I highly recommend it. Anyway, here was I surrounded by thousands of books and I walk out empty handed. Well, not really empty. Crash bought a Warriors book about cats and Bang got Little Miss Stubborn and an early reader Star Wars book. I got nothing. Did I not know which ones I wanted? Was I so torn in my decision to choose one that I chose none? Was I really content with the number of books I have?
For now, we’ll pick D) All of the above.
What are you reading? How about these 5 posts…
Daughter of Nature I haven’t received a notification for it, yet, but I think Neeraja was my 1,000th follower! Thanks, Neeraja, Daughter of Nature!
For those who are counting there are just 167 days left until Christmas. For those who aren’t counting there are still 167 days until Christmas.
Today I’d like to honor the seven 8 blogs who appear in my email that I make sure I read. Skim if I don’t have time to fully read. But I read and comment when I can. Some are on journeys. Some are insightful. Some are just plain funny. It’s a good can of mixed nuts.
Happy Belated birthday, Canada. 150 years old! Back when Dinosaurs were inventing water. We celebrated by wearing our matching Canada 150 shirts, eating a free pancake breakfast, checking out some tall ships (105 feet tall to be exact), eating some free hotdogs and Canada’s birthday cake. There was music, bouncy castles, spray on tats, and tired, cranky kids who then had to go home and clean their room after supper.
I hope all you dads had great day yesterday. Moms, I hope your children’s father and your own father had a great day.
Even all of you who fill the fatherly role.
Hope you were able to play your “Dad Card” to get out any unwanted duties. Now we’re back to real life so it’s back to working and cooking and cleaning and jumping on trampolines and putting kids to bed and doing whatever it is you do as Dad.
I was talking to a boy on the playground last week at school. He told me, “There’s a June bug over there” and pointed to the ground in the corner of an asphalted area.
I replied, “Oh, show me.”
“I stomped on it.” He explained. “It’s not June, yet.”
Had that bug just waited one more day, he would have been in the correct month and would have survived. Though I know that boy made a many people happy. To some, the only good June bug is a dead June bug.
In case you’re counting, there are 210 days until Christmas!
You’re probably not counting, though. Neither am I.
But just like Christmas Eve, not a creature is stirring. The boys are asleep with visions of God knows what dancing in their dreams. The parrot is covered and quiet (until she screeches for a treat at 9:30). With it so peaceful, I leave you these good reads for this evening. Or morning for those of you on the other side.
If it’s not raining y’all, it’s windy. 70 kph wind gusts yesterday and today. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was a bit warmer, but it’s only 10C (50F). At least it’s not raining. Or snowing. Friends of ours in Newfoundland got snow yesterday. Not just some flurries or a dusting, but enough for snowball fights and sledding! Here we are approaching the end of May and they’re still out snowshoeing.
So, whether you’re enjoying sunshine and warm weather or out building igloos, here is this week’s share. Happy reading!

This is one of my favorite posts of the week. I get to share what you shared with us. The perk is when others then share what I wrote. A huge thank you to all those who have shared my writing. It never goes unnoticed and is always appreciated.
The A to Z Challenge has come to an end until next year when we decide to take on this task yet again. It was fun, as always. This year I didn’t miss a single letter. Though, a few posts just barely made it in under the wire. I’ll let you know how the month went tomorrow. Tonight, I’d like to share one more time, some others who also finished up the challenge spectacularly.
