Weekend Reading

Friday, January 16th, 2015

There are few things I like about January besides awards show fashion and the NFL playoffs. It’s so gloomy and cold I have a hard time staying cheerful. Between being sick this week, gray skies and the unending chill, all I’m thinking is spring cannot come fast enough!!

I want to catch up on a few movies we’ve missed, the only film I’ve seen that’s nominated this year for Best Picture is The Grand Budapest Hotel, which was quirky and fun. Which films do you recommend as a must see?

Have a great three day weekend!

I said farewell to my family today, they’re driving home to California while I stay here in Las Vegas for another week awaiting our kitchen cabinet delivery and finishing up other projects in the master bathroom and laundry room. In my spare time I’ll be shopping for tile for the kitchen backsplash, much to do in the week I’m still here but I’m looking forward to returning home. Thank you so much for all of your kind comments from my last post, I treasure every one. 

Here’s the short list of favorite links from the week, enjoy!
