A Sense Of Normalcy



Finally 🎉 More getting back to normal (in the midst of also finding another new normal) with restarting my Rheumatoid disease IV sessions today, a year to the month since my last. Spending my fellow spoonies some extra ❤️ today!

#BookRec - Before We Were Yours


My second and last #SheReads book selection of the summer! Yesterday I finished @author_lisa_wingate's latest novel, out now, and I'm still not sure I can put into a review into words. It's a beautifully written and gripping work about a heartbreaking period of history I knew nothing about until reading this. Historical fiction (of more recent history) at its' best. This story will remain with me for a long time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you again to @penguinrandomhouse for this copy!

Friday Favorites




The Zinnias have started blooming, just in time to usher in the beginning of August, and late Summer! 

The library holds keep rolling in! I'm so excited for this one - Fiona Davis's The Dollhouse was one of my favorite reads of last Fall! I just started The Address this morning & already can't put it down. This is her second novel, out now. What are you reading this weekend? 

Last night we went for a walk along the waterfront, after dinner & before heading up the street to the movies, and there were t-storms swirling throughout the area & the harbor. This was my favorite photo from the dozen I snapped before the rain drops forced me to put my phone away.

#BookRec - The Bookshop At Water's End


Before finishing @pattichenry's newest book, out now, I knew it was my favorite of hers! She had me at the setting, Water's End, because it is like where I grew up, and where I live on the coast now; where both the river and the ocean influence everything & everything surrounded by them. (I'm a sucker for a setting that's its own character!) Add to that friendships, families & secrets, a vacation home, and a bookshop that's the heart of the community, and you have a page turner! As this summer wanes, be sure to fit this into the last of your summer reads. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you again to my friends at @deepsouthmag for this copy! 💙💚 #bookrec #bookbrief

Coneflowers For Days


It's late July in my garden, and the Coneflowers are blooming away! I can't get enough of taking photos of them, every day, at different times of day, in different light. There aren't as many of them this year, so I'll have to be sure to save seeds and get them planted for next. Soon, the Zinnias will be blooming, and as the coneflowers wane, my focus will switch to them, and their colorful, happy faces. The late Summer and Autumn garden has always been my favorite!

What's blooming in your garden now?

Monday Monday



This has been my view most of today, aside from the insides of my eyelids 😴 But, better to have a full on spoonie day during a rainy day than a nice one! At least it's cool enough to have the windows open for fresh air, and that way I can listen to the rain too.

I did not want to take a quick ride. 🙄 It's disgustingly hot & humid out and I've got a cold. 🤧 I felt less than enthusiastic about leaving the house, to say the least. 😬 Then, coming back over the bridge, this happened. 😍🙌🏻 That's a #nofilterneeded #thisismynj #sunset if there ever was one! 💙
