TSS: Murder, Monsters & Mayhem Week 1 Wrap-Up

Brrr! The week has come and gone, Mother Nature leaving us with brisk Fall weather. I shouldn’t complain; it feels nice to have the windows open with a cool breeze blowing coming in! This is the perfect weather for the first week of Murder, Monsters & Mayhem.   There’s nothing like curling up with with […]

TSS: Week in Review: September 14, 2014

Fall is here! experiencing some pretty hot & humid weather, the past few days we’ve been gifted with cool, breezy weather. I kind of love it! I love Fall for many reasons: changing color of leaves, cooler weather, wearing scarves and sweaters.  One of my favorite things, however, is the start of fall television series. […]

TSS: A Week in Review

Yet another wonderfully relaxing summer week.  Teen son was off at Scout camp so we were down to just one child this week. We go through this every summer, yet somehow I forget how demanding of time our youngest is when his older brother is away. We spent the evenings reading and watching movies so […]

TSS: A Week in Review (June 8)

This post is going live far later than I had anticipated! I guess that’s what happens when you forget to hit “publish!”  Oh well, it gives me a chance to add a few things! My ankle is slowly healing from my pre-BEA injury. I’m wearing fairly normal shoes, though it’s still quite swollen.  It’s forced […]

TSS: A Week in Review

The boys were on Spring Break this week so we used it as an excuse to take the week off and head the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We stayed in a 100 year old cabin for five days and, I must say, the time away from busy city life was grand!  The cabin was about […]

TSS: Anniversary Special: Pros & Cons of Blogging

  Yesterday, Jenn’s Bookshelves turned six years old! I must say, it’s been a wonderful six years. As I was contemplating how (or if) I was going to celebrate this year, I reflected back on some of the more interesting things I’ve experienced as a blogger.  A few years ago, I shared some advice that […]

TSS: Week in Review

Another week has come to an end. We’ve been teased with spring weather this week but the cold temps and snow are just around the corner again. As usual, the boys are keeping us active with all their activities: skiing trips, school concerts, basketball, & birthday parties. I really am glad they are so active! […]

TSS: A Week in Review

  I’m baaack!! My insane travel season is over and I’m finally getting back in to my reading groove!  It’s definitely a gradual thing; I have discovered that since I haven’t had a lot of time to read, I’ve definitely become a pickier reader. So many books have been started, only to be put down, […]

TSS: A Week in Review

Here’s to a new year full of fresh new starts and new beginnings!  While I enjoyed all the time off, the busy travel season for work has started for me.  While airplane time means more reading time, it’s quite exhausting by the time it’s all over!  So, bear with me if things slow down  and […]
