March turned out to be a pretty hectic month in the area of work and COVID only helped to make it worse. I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
We are currently on our second weekend lockdown, with the last one scheduled for April 9. The measure became necessary as COVID cases are increasing at a rapid rate and its mostly due to persons failing to follow the protocols. This is made worse by the conspiracy theorists who believes its a plot by the government to control citizens as in their minds COVID doesn’t exist.
On a positive note I made a new acquisition in March. I traded in my 2009 Subaru, which I owned since 2012, for a 2020 Hyundai Tucson. Although I love my Subaru it started giving me a host of problems and I knew it was time to let it go. I am loving my new vehicle, although there are a number of features I need to figure out.

Congratulations on the new car. Enjoy! I am impressed at how many years that Subaru gave to you. I never owned a car that long. Looks like you had a rather good reading month too. Yeah!
Thanks Sam. My Subaru was faithful to me.
Congrats on the new car! It sounds like you had a good month of reading. It is a shame that so many people aren’t following the protocols for covid. I hope that April is a good month for you!
Thanks Carole. It drives like a dream. ? I have to agre my month of reading was good, in spite of not meeting my goal.
Congratulations on your new car! You had a good reading month!
Congrats on the trade-in! Happy April!
Bummer about how drastic it still is with Covid and people are being twerps about it. Hoping you and your family remain well. So cool that you love the new car. I had to get rid of my old car two years ago when it started nickel and diming me. It was nice not having a car payment for years, but my ‘new’ one was used so it didn’t take long to pay off either. 🙂
Yay for doing so great on your reading challenges and being ahead on your reading stack with GoodReads. I always enjoy reading your reviews so I look forward to what you think of your April books.
Happy Easter, Nadene!
PS Got your letter yesterday. 🙂
Happy Easter to you too, Yay, glad you received it.
The conspiracy theorists make everything worst. I have a family member that believes all of the lies and you can’t change his mind.
You always find persons like that and even when the truth is staring them in the face they refuse to accept it.
Congratulations on the car! Looks like a productive reading month with some promising-sounding titles for April.
Thank you and yes I had a good reading month.
Thanks for the catch up on books and personally Nadene. I had to chuckle when I saw you say there are things on your new car you still have to figure out, I got a new car in 2017 and I’m still learning new things.
I guess I will figure it out all at once. ?
Plus I just don’t understand these idiots who don’t believe this virus is read and go around spouting utter nonsense. Unfortunately for us in the states some of these crazies are elected officials. You just can’t fix stupid and I hope the country starts to see just how dangerous these kinds of people are.
Its a universal thing. You know its said one fool makes many and as long as there a persons spouting nonsense I am afraid there will be no change.
Congrats on the new car!! Hope April turns out to be a better month for you.
Thank you. I hope so too.
COVID be damned – as it is here to stay. You still had a good month of reading.
Yes I did, thanks.
congrats on your new car.. and looks like a great reading month overall..

Thank you. Yes I do believe I had a good reading month.
I loved your wrap up.
