Month in Review: June 2020



While things are slowly opening up, I am still staying home for the most part...and I am totally fine with that. The weather has been fantastic and I've been spending lots of time reading on the deck - and the dogs love it! I have just about made my Goodreads goal for the year - I'm one book shy and we are only six months in...this year will surely be a year for the records. I don't think I am going to change my goal because who knows what will happen moving forward and I don't want to add unnecessary pressure. I'm a homebody by nature - and quite honestly don't mind having to stay home. And who knows...maybe I might actually get caught up on all the piles of books I have sitting around!
