I made Millionaires Shortbread and it turned out pretty well. It‘s gooeyer than I thought it‘d be. But tasty. Oh and it‘s shortbread topped with a layer of caramel and chocolate.

Stopped by Bath and Body Works after work today. I couldn‘t help myself after smelling this. I had to get it! And I rewarded myself with a bath afterwards.
Things are getting more interesting in the book. I definitely will have to get the new one about Marcus after I finish.

Visited my nephew at day camp today. Rained this morning but turned into a beautiful day.

I only have a few discs left. I‘m questioning my decision to listen to another book before #2 in the All Souls Trilogy. Might have to change my mind!

Another lovely night. Spending the evening burning brush and reading. I just finished the Bishop series and wasn‘t sure what I‘d read next. Luckily! This new series starts off where the last one ended so I get to find out what happened to some characters.

There‘s a film festival this week. My friend and I went out for dinner before seeing a documentary called Riplist. Super funny. This group in Fargo/Moorhead area make a list every year of famous people they think will die that year.

I‘m a few discs in now and I‘m hoping to catch up some on the tv series this week. So far so good!

So it snowed yesterday. Luckily it melted today and didn‘t kill my flowers.

I‘m on disc 14 of 15 and I stayed in my car after work to get past a good part where I FINALLY found out the big announcement in the book. Very good book and I‘m looking forward to seeing how it ends.

Dyed eggs today with my brother‘s family. My brother recently got an egg cooker so he made a ton of eggs for today. And I got to take home a dozen for myself. 😁

So far I‘m enjoying this book! Except I‘m heartbroken about the damage done by the fire. Made me cringe hearing about it. Ugh.

EmilyChristine @Chelseabillups30 Oh yes! I can eat anything while working, I get a 30% discount plus I can take home anything that‘s considered unsellable. Such as an apple whose stick came out or something that‘s ugly looking. 4y

So I just started a bible study with a couple friends. I also got two books by this author. I‘ve read his first book and have been meaning to read this one and the one he wrote with his wife. Now, I‘m not religious but I really enjoy his take on religion and the Bible.

This was such a good book! And I really liked the reader for the audio version. It follows Caroline from when they leave Wisconsin and settle in Kansas. Told from Caroline‘s view it gives a different look into the story.

Finished! It was actually quite good. It has a science fictiony feel to it. Reminds me of the movie A Quiet Place. But it has that twist of what will a person do in a situation. Now I have to watch the movie!

So this book has been on my to-read list for awhile and now that Netflix made a movie I decided its time to read it. I‘m about half way done so far. I haven‘t watched the movie yet so no spoilers. Anyone else read it? Thoughts?

TobeyTheScavengerMonk My wife never got tired of doing things to freak me out because I was so on edge the whole time I was reading this. 4y
Bklover Just reread this and loved it as much the second time as I did the first! 4y
EmilyChristine @TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Bklover I really liked it though it made me feel similar to when I watched A Quiet Place. 4y
Bklover @EmilyChristine I agree. When I saw A Quiet Place I almost wondered if they‘d gotten the idea from BirdBox. Similar concept!! 4y
