It's the October holiday weekend here in the US, sometimes called Columbus Day, sometimes called Indigenous People Day. I'm not exactly sure which is the accepted one anymore, so that's why I'm giving you both names. For all I know, there may even be another name for this upcoming Monday.
I'm also wishing all my neighbors to the North a Happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend also.
In the next few days, I have a couple of celebrations to attend. One of my husband's nieces' wedding is this afternoon. It is outdoors, so I am keeping my fingers crossed about the weather. It is suppose to be cloudy and chilly, sadly. The couple were actually married last year, but because of covid are having their reception now. This wedding also means we have my daughter and her beau around for at least part of the weekend.
This upcoming Tuesday my Mom turns 92. I have to laugh when I think of this because when I reminded her that she was turning 92, she was quite impressed with herself. With her short term memory loss, she can't remember her actual age, but every year she does want to insist she is turning 29 again. She's been insisting that since I can remember. Smile.
Before early October gets away from me, I want to share my latest book post. These are my September books. It was definitely a good month for mysteries, or I should say, since the beginning of the month was not a big reading time, the rest of the month was a good month for mostly mysteries.
As usual, I write this for me, so don't feel you need to read on if books aren't your thing.
Book one for me was the latest Louise Penny, Inspector Gamache mystery. This is book 17 series.
