The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56 & Book Beginnings)

Welcome to week '?'.
Currently I'm using a friend's internet on my phone to get some kind of post up.
I'll have internet back on Monday sometime so next week will be a normal post again. Bear with me. 😊

Since I'm on my phone there will be no Linky. Leave a comment with your url to your post and I'll visit a.s.a.p.
(I know I still have a couple to visit from last week. Sorry life has gotten in the way... I wish I could say I was having fun at least but nope.)

Happy weekend and happy birthday Canada!

    This week I shared a bit from an audiobook I am listening to. I wish I could tell you I was enjoying it immensely, but I'm still not sure I'll like it.
