Reading

I just finished this great book:  The Tatooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris:

https://www.amazon.com/Tattooist-Auschwitz-Novel-Heather-Morris/dp/0062797158/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2YCI6CQWFXQSZ&keywords=the+tatooist+of+auschwitz+book&qid=1562087783&s=gateway&sprefix=the+tatooist+of%2Caps%2C269&sr=8-2

My husband and I both read and enjoyed this book.  The main character, Lale, finds love.  While tattooing numbers on Gita in a concentration camp, he falls in love instantly and never loses hope that they will have a life together.  This books is based on the author's real life interviews with Lale.  Although the book contains details of the concentration camp horrors, in the end, it is a story of love, hope and survival.

Right now, I'm reading Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid:

https://www.amazon.com/Daisy-Jones-Taylor-Jenkins-Reid/dp/1524798622/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3FN6YSGHBDUH9&keywords=daisy+jones+and+the+six&qid=1562088079&s=gateway&sprefix=daisy+%2Caps%2C185&sr=8-1

The setting of this story is during the 1970's in Los Angeles.  The plot centers on a fictional band:  The Six who is later joined by Daisy Jones.  The story is told in snippets by different characters.  I thought the book was based on a real band because it seems so realistic.  If you like music and/or the 1970's, this book is worth checking out!


Enjoying

Summer vacation = total enjoyment!  I spend my mornings going spinning followed by cleaning and doing organizational projects.  In the afternoon, I go in my pool and do water aerobics.  Then I read and watch Big, Little, Lies or Tales from a City while eating an Italian ice.    I LOVE the pace of summer life!





Finding

I am finding that TJ Maxx and Marshall's are excellent at selling merchandise.  I picked up 24 pumpkin spice coffee pods while waiting to check out last weekend.  Of course, they're only good until the end of August, but no one has to twist my arm to drink pumpkin spice coffee either!


Saving

I am still saving Box Tops for my school.  I never win the classroom contest, but I save them all!


Tasting

I accidentally forgot to cancel Hello Fresh so we're enjoying meals from them for two weeks in a row.  



I love the Bulgoggi sauce.  I can only find it online, but I bet I could get some at H-Mart.

I'm off to vacuum my pool so it's all clean for tomorrow!  Happy 4th of July!
