A POTPOURRI OF ADVENTURES…

All week, I’ve been following my daughter’s posts from her honeymoon in Europe.  Earlier in the week, the adventures took them to Prague, in our Adventures at Home & Abroad…

In the latter part of this week, we’re in Amsterdam.  Note the building above.  And a canal ride below.

I especially love the cuteness of this building….

I suspect that there will be more photos in the days ahead.  I’m loving this vicarious journey.

What are you sharing today?

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: ADVENTURES AT HOME & ABROAD….

Beautiful sights are filling the days of my youngest, Heather, and her husband David.  On their European honeymoon, they are first enjoying Prague.  Later they will visit Amsterdam.  (Above, they are standing against the John Lennon Wall in Prague).

They flew in last week and were stuck in the Stockholm Airport before finally grabbing their connection to Prague.  Once they arrived, they enjoyed a view with my son Craig and DIL Gabi.  Great tour guides.

Here they are sharing a beer or two…or more…with Craig.

On their visit to a castle, they enjoyed this backdrop of a gorgeous gate.

The castle…

Every day Heather posts more photos…I have a folder with them, and more will be revealed as the days pass.

Meanwhile, I’m reading a couple of books…yes, at the same time:

 

The Beach Inn, by Joanne DeMaio

The Red Hunter (e-book), by Lisa Unger

The concurrent reading works when the books are in a different genre, and one is a thriller, while the other is a beach read with a different kind of drama.

While I was sitting in my office (above), posting and visiting blogs, I got an e-mail that one of my NetGalley requests was approved.  I just requested it last week, but it is an 8/1 release Mrs. Fletcher, by Tom Perrotta, one of the most popular and bestselling authors of our time.  It is a penetrating and hilarious new novel about sex, love, and identity on the frontlines of America’s culture wars. (Other books:  Little Children, The Leftovers, and The Abstinence Teacher…my favorites).

So much for cutting back on NetGalley requests!  I now have seven unread books on my shelf.  But…they all have July, August, and September release dates.  So I’m good!  Whew!

I just finished the last of the June releases:  Every Last Lie, by Mary Kubica.  Fabulous! (Click title for my review).
