A Little Down Time

October 16, 2008 at 9:36 pm | Posted in Books | 18 Comments

I just wanted to let everyone know that there was a death in Danny’s family earlier this week. His Aunt Madeline passed away after a hard struggle with cancer. She was 88 years old. I would appreciate any thoughts and prayers for Danny’s mother.

The good news is that my sister, Meridith, gave birth to Karly Hope early this morning. She is beautiful and I wish I could be in Grand Rapids to congratulate her in person and hold my niece. But, a little bit of Grand Rapids will be heading south early tomorrow morning. My parents are coming for a long weekend for Emma and Allison’s birthday. As a result, Literate Housewife may be a little quiet until Monday. I’ll still be posting the winner of the first October Spotlight contest for a copy of Erika Mailman’s The Witch’s Trinity on Saturday.

I hope to catch up with everyone again next week!
