Good Sunday morning everyone! How is everyone’s weekend so far? Mine has been good except for freezing to death. Winter is definitely on it’s way here. We’ve already had a few frosts here, the flowers are finished, and the leaves are changing color and already falling off the trees. Is it just me or did the summer go by really fast this year?
Well I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I just can’t seem to get back into the reading groove and I’ve noticed this has been happening way too much this year. I wonder why though as I don’t ever remember having the reading blahs this bad before. What I did do though is get a lot of laundry done (is there anything better than hot out of the dryer jammies?), the bed changed, and now all that is left is giving Sammy a bath today which is always such fun. NOT! He’s so big and strong and he spends most of his time trying to jump out of the tub and he usually succeeds.
Has anyone watched the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button? I watched it on Friday night and really liked it. I rented Mommie Dearest too- anyone see that one? I’ve seen it before but it’s a movie I’ve always liked and felt like watching again. As for reading I’m finishing up Road From the West by Rosanne E. Lortz and I still have To the Moon and Back by Jill Mansell to finish up. Geez on a normal day I can usually zip through a book or most of it. I’m getting discouraged by my own reading. LOL.
On tap for this week:
Monday – Review of Road From the West by Rosanne E. Lortz
Tuesday – Review of What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Wednesday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of Anything by Michael Baron
Thursday – Review of The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen
Friday – open so far…
To end the post I’ll leave you with a couple pictures of Sammy. You guys just wouldn’t believe how bad he is. He’ll be doing something so cute and I’ll think about what a great picture it’ll make and turn on the camera. Well that’s all it takes. As soon as he hears the camera turn on he’s done being cute and either turns his head or walks away. How am I ever going to supply you guys with cute Sammy pics if he refuses to pose. I’ve even offered treats and only once in a blue moon will that work. Oh yeah, I do have to share this with you – you know those storm drains that are on almost every street corner? Well Sammy has never liked them from when I started walking him but now if he can’t walk a wide enough berth around it he will just sit down on the road and refuse to move at all so there’s me tugging on his leash and him not moving. I have to go and pick him up and haul him off the road. In the meantime, whoever is walking by is laughing as are the people in their houses if they’re watching. It is kind of funny considering he isn’t scared of anything else. It keeps making me think of the book It by Stephen King (that I’m supposed to be reading with Anna and Serena but I’m behind on that too). Anyway maybe Sam thinks there’s something down there. LOL.
Mom, do you really have to take a picture right now???
Mommy, it’s bedtime. Put that camera away and quit trying to take pictures of me for your friends. I’m tired and I want to go to sleep!
And that’s it for my week. I hope to spend today reading and thinking up something good for supper. What’s everyone else reading today? Anybody do anything special this weekend?
