Sunday Post #6

This is my Sunday Post #6
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's late in the day, but it's still SUNDAY in Pacific Standard Time, so I have a few hours left to get my post in.
I pretty much abandoned the post during the month of December.  I have no excuse except---I have no discipline?  I don't manage my time wisely? 
The time management is a fact---I'm a horrible procrastinator--but I usually come in with an A+ in the nick of time (I did it in school all the time).  But that was a long time ago, I can't pull all nighters anymore catching up on stuff.
Or can I? 
Anyway---never mind. 
2015 is gone!
I've never cared about m age--it doesn't bother me at all--but I do tend to get somewhat melancholy at the turning of a new year.  I always have.
It's dumb I know, but it's kind of intimidating when you think about it--like a big blank sheet of paper, just waiting to be written on.  OR maybe the words are already there --maybe our fate is already written--and we just can't see it.
What's in store!??
Just kidding---I know that
Good things are in store for 2016!
It started off  very good, we had a couple of our grandchildren for the week.  We played board games (tons of them--Uno, Connect Four, Left, Right Center,  Headbanz, Mancala, Shut the Box), saw Alvin and the Chipmunks, went sledding, celebrated the new year with some Pie in the Face!

On New Year's day we all had our "FIRST BOOK" read.
(I joined Sheila at Book Journey for this)
I sent their mom this photo and she said "this makes my heart happy".  She is as big a book nerd as I am---and she's not even related by blood!
It makes my heart happy too.

Then the Handyman and his first read!  I have no idea what it is.
We inherited my dad's Kindle and he had a ton of books on there.  Mostly  Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Lee Child-- you get the drift of what kind of books my dad liked--and the Handyman is reading them all, I guess.  We did find an interesting read on there tho....50 shades of gray
UM---DAD??!!  and he's not even around for us to tease him!
The Handyman says he's NOT reading those 3.  YES!  All three are on there.
But you know...since I can't see the screen, perhaps he is reading them???

It was a fun week.
On the blog, I thought I did NOTHING, but it looks like I did!
I was trying to fit everything in  by the end of the year, so I'd write posts after the kids were in bed. Guess I was too tired to remember.
Coming up this week on the blog:
A couple of Friday Friend Cookbook posts this week!
Have a great week!
FYI, it is now 11:11 PST on Sunday---see?  Just in the nick of time!

The picture of your grandchildren makes my heart happy too. By the way, I love both of the series they're reading. I saw a lot of Pie Face pictures on FB so that must have been a big hit this Christmas.

I love the family photos - especially the one of the kids. It makes me so happy when I see my kids reading and enjoying books. The Wimpy Kid series is great and I'm hoping to start reading it to the Tornado soon. I love that about your dad's Kindle! That's so funny about 50 Shades of Grey! Have a great week!

Love the pictures of everyone reading. I'm so out of it that I don't know about the Pie In The Face thing. Funny. There were no little kids at our Christmas, so I'm out of the loop on toys. The stuff your husband is reading sounds like my husband, except for the 50 Shades. How hilarious! Now the question is - will he or won't he? LOL

What a wonderful start to the new year, Debbie! I love the photos. Everyone looks like they are having fun. :-) That's too funny about Fifty Shades being on your dad's Kindle.

I hope you have a wonderful 2016!
