Happy Monday my friends.
Phew…we are just finishing up moving my parents into their new home at a lovely ‘retirement community' here in town. It was several long days of hard work, but it was delightful at the same time. My brother flew in to help and it was truly fun to all be working towards the common goal of getting our parents and their pup, Bernie, happily situated in their new home.
I hope you have enjoyed a productive or relaxing weekend, whichever you needed the most.

Think this would be a great meal for a lazy, end-of-summer day and I can see serving it hold or cold. I need to prepare a dinner this weekend that will travel well and feed 6 of us and think this is the one!
For my friends on Twitter, I discovered this account from The Simple Show podcast…one of my new favorites…the podcast and the twitter account! I'm rarely on Twitter, but will pop in to see what Dog has to say.

It's been several months since I've read a book that I so thoroughly enjoyed as much as I am enjoying The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. First off, I find her writing to be so poetic and her descriptions so insightful. She has a way of describing so that I can fully visualize and feel or see what she is referring to. Second, it's a unique story and one that poses a thought-provoking question…if you knew the date of your death, how would it influence your life? And finally, when so many books seem formulaic, it's about as un-formulaic as it comes…which is worth a good deal to me!
I'm about 90% done, so don't know how it wraps up. It's not a light read and some might find it a little somber, but I know I am anxious each day to pick up the book to see what happens. I do think it'd be a great book for a book club discussion.
I hope the rest of your week is fantastic!
