Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's out there. I hope you have a wonderful day and are spoiled rotten.
I did some hardcore reading last night, but I still didn't really finish anything this week. I am close, though! I am going to try and read some more after I finish this post. I have to decide what to do for my picture of the day. I saw my mother on Friday and probably won't see her today because she has became a golfer in the last couple weeks and vanishes for hours.
I sent out some postcards last week, so let me know if you receive them! Hopefully I didn't miss anyone that I promised one to. If you feel like you should have one by a certain point, email me please!
I received three postcards this week:
|Maryland. This is one of the places I did need for my project, so that brings my numbers up to 33/50. Thanks Meg! I hope you receive your postcard from me soon.|
|Rhode Island. I also needed this one for my project. That means 34/50 for my total this week. Thanks Charlotte!|
I will continue to show any and all postcards I receive in up-coming weeks.

Just a reminder once again that Lu will have Mr. Linky this month and that you should post from May 28 to 31. We will continue to do a bit of a wrap-up post on Fridays. I was also going to announce the poem group read today, but I haven't talked to Lu yet to make up our minds. Expect a separate post!

Operation: Use My...
I have managed to take a picture everyday in May. Sometimes it is just for this project, but other days something happens that is worth taking pictures of. I shared a few yesterday, but here are a couple others:
|Apple Tree Silhouette|
I only finished three books, but Code Name Verity counts for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. Then, the two Cinderella Fables count for the Once Upon a Time Challenge.
I absolutely loved this book and think everyone needs to read it! You can read my review here. (Personal Copy)
This was a reread for me. It was back in 2009 that I had read it for the first time, so decided to refresh my memory before reading the new one. Not really necessary, but still fun. (Personal Copy)
I hate the cover to this book. A hardcore version of Cinderella and she is wearing a bikini? Yes, she has a gun and such, but really, just not a good call for me. I recommend Fables to everyone, but I would hesitate over this one, even though it was good, just because the cover gives a different impression... (Personal Copy)
