April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of monthly news!
Spring finally sprung up near the end of the month. That made my month. I get less thrilled with Winter the older I get. How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
I did well for books, and according to Goodreads, I'm 3 books ahead of schedule for my goal of 100 books. I feel good about that. How's your progress?
In my private life, my mom, who is widowed and recently retired, has moved in with me. Though she will be at the cottage for most of the year, the winter will be with me. You may hear more about her in my posts to come. Are any of you caregivers or live with your parents? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Congrats on being ahead on your yearly reading goal! I'm about a dozen books behind, even after adjusting my goal. Seem to be in a reading rut, but slowly working my way out! How nice that your mother will be spending winters with you! My mother-in-law lived with us for a few years and I think that the most important advice I can offer is to respect each other's privacy and give each other plenty of space. Good luck!

  2. Seems like a good month--loved the sorbet post! I don't have any experience in that other area, but certainly hope all goes well with your mom and you are able to enjoy this time together.

  3. After I lost my mother-in-law, I realised that it is always good to have an elderly person living with you. Have a great time with your mom.

  4. So basing on the 'recommend' status of books, you read a lot of good ones in April. Hope the May is even better. Happy reading! :)

  6. Sheesh, where do you find the time for all of this?!
    I think it's so sweet to have your elderly mom move in with you. I'm a volunteer for hospice and I know too many poor people who hate the nursing homes but have to live there because their family won't take them it. I say, you lived with your mother for at least eighteen years, can't you let her live with you for a fraction of that time so that she's comfortable at the end of her life? I think some people just don't understand.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

And Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s a superhero after his owner starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s been pretending to be.Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
