April reading recap

My normal book rating is 3 out of 5. I seldom grant a book a rating of 4 or 5. All of my April reads were just above that—so a good reading month for me.

Who Am I?

A few things about me:

  • I'm a wife (37+ years and he still loves me!), a niece, and an aunt.
  • I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago—it's a great place to be from.
  • My hubby and lived in the HOT area of northern CA, and upon retiring we happily fled to the cool climate of the central coast of Oregon.
  • I'm a picture taker, not a photographer.
  • I'm a cancer SURVIVOR!
  • I'm a Q-Tip—and if you don't know what that means you probably aren't one. HA!
  • I'm a sewer of simple quilts.
  • I'm a baker of cakes, and always on the lookout for new cake recipes.
  • I'm a reader of books, and I've been known to get so involved in my book that dinner is either late or burned—or both.
  • I'm a lover of plants, but not a grower of plants. :(
  • I like a clean house, but I hate cleaning the house.
  • I'm tired of planning meals and cooking, and wish I had a "cook".
  • I have a dry sense of humor that has become dryer thanks to my husband's influence.
  • I'm a firm believer in keeping certain discussions behind closed doors.
