Valentine’s Day Bingo – Week 1 – Secret Admirer

I’ve been doing a cozy mystery bingo off and on for the past 3 years.

So what is it? Goodreads has different groups you can join. One of which is the cozy mystery bingo. If you decide to join a bingo, you are assigned a group. Each week, you are given a topic to read about. It is up to you to find a book that fits the topic.

While we were in the museum, it rained. The rain had stopped by the time we got out of the museum so we walked along their riverwalk which was cool.

The Dayton Dragons, our minor league baseball team, play the Lansing Lugnuts so we stopped at the exterior of their stadium. There were a couple of cool statues that I enjoyed photographing.
