Weekly Update at Introverted Reader

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She’s taking a bit of personal leave so I’m also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Our dreadful heat finally broke this weekend. It’s been beautiful and right around 80 degrees, which is perfect for me! My husband and I spent most of the afternoon out in the hammock, reading and napping. What a perfect day.

Last night we went to our local community theater to see The Great American Trailer Park Musical. Oh my goodness, we laughed ’til we hurt! If it’s ever onstage anywhere near you, go check it out!
