It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (12.3.12)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

After a busy couple of weeks, my husband and I headed up to our cabin for 4 days - it was just what we needed. I spent the days reading and crocheting while hubby went hunting and then did some projects around the cabin. There was snow on the ground when we got there and it snowed again while we where there - there's nothing like sitting on the couch in front of the fire watching the snow fall. Now I just need a day to get caught up with my reviews!
