I didn't finish a single book this week.
I received a bookbox in the mail. Here it is. Unopened.
Here is my TBR stack on Monday.
Here is my TBR stack today. Nothing read.
I got notices that books were in at the library. The books are still sitting at the library.
So why such a book-less week? Have I been ill? Away on vacation? Caring for the sick?
No, it was happy news....My son got married!
His sweet bride-to-be and her s-mom have been working on this for months. Cake, flowers, reception hall, dj...slowly everything started to come together.
It's the scary parts you remember, I bet. H lost her engagement ring. J lost his driver's license and you have to have a dl to get a marriage license. Our preacher retired just before H&J were getting married and we couldn't find anyone else to marry them. And H&J wanted to get married outside, at the park, where they had their first date. Outside, mind you, in July, here on the Gulf Coast of Texas. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Temps run in the high nineties during July.
And H wanted her dog in the wedding.
Her mom was caring for H's grandpa. Would her mom be able to come to the wedding?
And at 2:30 yesterday, it was pouring down rain.
And where was the music?
At five minutes till three, the rain stopped. We wiped down the chairs. There was suddenly a cool breeze and temp dropped ten degrees.
The music arrived.
The bride arrived.
Every chair was filled, and even the bride's mom was able to come.
I've never seen a more perfect wedding.
The bride walked down the path in the park, and she was radiant. J was glowing. J&H exchanged vows, exchanged rings (H's mom gave H a ring from H's g-ma), and a beautiful prayer was said. We all quietly thanked God for everything working out.
And that's why I read nothing this week.
