I Can’t Wait For May to Come!

Right now we are in the middle of a complete demolition and reconstruction of our bathroom. Wouldn’t you know we’d find leaks in the ceiling when the room was torn apart. We started this job on Monday and had to wait till today for the Co-Op plumber to inspect it. We’ll probably have another three days till it’s attended to. In the meantime my plumber put in all new brass piping and the electrician came in today to upgrade the wiring for my new lights and dimmer switch.

I hope the books I’m showcasing this month will entertain you as much as my construction problems have. LOL

April is coming in any way it chooses this year. Sorry I’m late with my post.

Normally I’d have had this post up by the 15th of the month. Things got a bit busy this year. My eldest grandson told us he was going to ask his girlfriend to marry him. None of us expected this till they’d graduated college next year. On top of that I’m dealing with the holiday I dislike the most. PASSOVER!

I spend and cook more food for the first three days of this holiday then I do for a month any other time of the year. Adding in that the Seder will be at my younger daughter’s house out on Long Island I have to cook in my kitchen and then shlep it out there still warm is making me extremely unhappy.

So, to make all of you happy I’m going to be posting my April list of new titles releases and have added some new authors to the list. I hope you find something interesting to read.
