Today, the four of us Josef, Jovy, Mom and I attended the christening of my nephew’s baby. It was a simple but a lovely celebration. Ton’s wife will be leaving for UK this coming Thursday and Ton and Emman will follow in a few months. It’s nice seeing family members again.

This afternoon, Josef tried to sweep the ashes on our rooftop but he isn’t done yet. It’s too big a task for one.  If we won’t remove it, it will harden when it rains and becomes lahar. It might destroy our gutter and downspouts.

I am trying to finish a book called Godpretty In The Tobacco Field by Kim Michele Richardson, a new author on my list. It’s a coming of age story that takes place in a fictional rural Appalachian town called Nameless, Kentucky. It’s a home of tobacco farms, crimes and poverty. I love historical stories like this.  I get so much joy in knowing a place even if it is fictional but the characters seem real. I’m about done, my 10th read this year. It may be a bit predictable but still a good read.

Do you participate in reading challenges? What books could you recommend for me to read? I love memoirs, fiction, sometimes YA books, a bit of fantasy and a little of classics. Any author I should discover too?
