P.S. May’s “Amazon First Reads” are up!! <— I totally forgot about these (thank you for the reminder Tasha!!), so maybe you did too? I chose a different from my usual… “Like Wind Against Rock” 😀 What did you choose?
Tasha J: I ended up going with The Darkest Flower, but I really wanted The Checklist too. My problem is actually reading them. My backlist is getting sooo long. I used to be pretty strict with reading books before buying more. That feels like the good ole days now. 😂
1.) I’ve officially reached Season 3 of Game of Thrones (not started yet – I only watch it on weekends).
2.) I love Egg Foo Young. I love ALL Chinese food, but Egg Foo Young is “fairly” Keto positive, so I LOVE it.
3.) I took a quick outside tour of MacDill Air Force Base this weekend. SO COOL
