Worn Out on Monday

Went to B.R. this weekend
with a Lego set for Max's 10th birthday.
 He and Mila and Leo spent a great deal of time with tiny Lego pieces.

Leo the rescue dog
has turned out to be
 a perfect match for them.

These went out last week
 Mila loves Dr. Who!


 Bryce Eleanor has discovered Harry Potter


 I have to keep on the lookout for jokes for Max




Reading:  I read two more of the Owen Archer series by Candace Robb last week.  I love this historical mystery series, the characters, the intriguing plots, and the historical detail.  I've also enjoyed two novels by Kristina Ohlsson in her Fredrika Bergman & Alex Recht mystery series, and the first in a new fantasy series by Lauren L. Garcia.

Gardening:  Nope, not really.

It will take me a couple of days to rest up, but I have quite a few new books to keep me busy.

  3. FUN MAIL!! My youngest grandson would play with lego blocks forever. Perhaps that was our clue that he could get a scholarship to Purdue in engineering. Lego blocks...so much better than clicking the phone or playstation!

    1. :) Wow! That would be worth all of the injuries to feet that stepped on Legos! Well worth it for an engineering scholarship! Congrats to your grandson!

  4. You should start chewing Bazooka Joe gum and steal their jokes. Or just give Max a big bag.
    The kids look like they are enjoying the Lego's. I loved to play Lego with my boys. It's much harder getting off the floor these days, but I'll still join in with the grands on occasion. I agree with Carol, our three boys all work in some form of engineering. I credit the right toys...okay, and their dad.
