Fortnightly Update #45: Mother's Day

Things have been quiet in my life lately, though I am managing to maintain my progress as far as walking goes. In the coming days I will be relegated to the caregiver role again, as my mom is having knee replacement surgery, so I'm not sure how much time I'll have to read or blog. Still, the blog will go on (and hopefully I'll be back to replying to comments soon!).

Recent Acquisitions (or the Piling of the-Piles):


Currently Reading:

The Summer I Met Jack by Michelle Gable
I'm not sure why I thought this would be more historical fiction than historical romance (maybe because it's based on real people?) but I am at 30% and it seems more historically romantic than I had anticipated. I do like it, it's just a different kind of book than I expected it to be.

Finished These Books:

Most of the books I've read were covered in my short adventure with Kindle Unlimited post. I caught up on many of the Irin Chronicles books, and also did some YA reading to polish off my subscription.

In My Life:

It's a quiet Mother's Day here. I made my mom an Italian Cream Cake and dyed the cake pink and the frosting violet-ish. It looks like it's supposed to be strawberry cake or something, but I just was tired of making the same cake over and over again (it's my mom's favorite).

I am on Season 6 of my Psych watch-a-thon, and I must say I love this show more with every episode. Although I was a frequent watcher of it for a while, I lost track of the characters and stopped watching somewhere past the sixth season (in other words, please no spoilers!). I think the best part about it is the mix of zany sit-com and detective show... but also the fact that Cary Elwes (of Princess Bride fame) has a recurring guest role on it.

Happy Reading!


  1. Good luck to your mom on her knee surgery!

  2. I got to the Psych party late and had only started watching it in 2016 and was binging the seasons hardcore. I was really sad when Netflix removed it from their service, so I haven't finished the series yet. It is so funny I honestly felt like I had been missing out! Also same feelings about Cary Elwes, I always get excited when I see him. He was my movie star crush growing up!

    I'm glad to hear that walking progress is steady, and I hope that your mom has a safe surgery and recovers quickly! You are such a wonderful daughter taking care of her and baking a cake that looks AMAZING. <3

  3. I hope your mom's knee surgery goes well. I love the sound of that cake! I have only seen one episode of Psych. I should give that show a try. I hope you have a great week! My blogging has been sporadic lately too. I need a good chunk of time to spend in front of the computer . . . Finding that time as of late has been hard. :-(

  4. She passed with flying colors and is well on her way to total recovery (according to her physical therapist).
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Greg!

  5. Oh, I loved the rest of Psych- I hope you get to finish up your binge-watching soon! Cary Elwes is a gem and I hope he lives forever like one. ;)
    Thanks- she is well on her way to recovery and I still have my legs, so I feel very lucky. I am hoping to get more blogging done!

  6. It went well and she is doing great lately so I am very pleased. The cake was delicious! I had a great week (as far as I recall) and I hope this one is just as great for you and your blogging agenda. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Wendy!

  7. I love that you bake your mom's favorite cake for Mother's Day! Baz made my favorite pizza un-burgers for me. He has yet to make baked goods. Maybe I'll ask for a home baked cake for my birthday. What could go wrong? 😏
