Good Sunday morning everyone! Well it was a long week here with the snow and blowing cold but it all melted yesterday and today we woke to rain. Hopefully it passes as our temperatures and rain can only lead to very icy conditions. Here’s a few pictures of Buddy enjoying the snow which he loves! However he’s strange, this morning it’s wet from rain and he won’t go onto the lawn except for one little paw. Yet when it snows he’s in there like a crazy dog- I don’t get it. lol.
This first pic he’s totally enjoying himself with his nose to the ground. I tried getting one when he lifts his head and he looks like he has a white beard but he’s too fast for me. I’ll get one this winter yet though.
This next pic I’m trying to convince him to pose for me in the snow but he walked out onto the sidewalk instead and as you can see from the raised paw and the look from under his fur that he is not happy with mommy bugging him at all.
Buddy has been doing pretty good. The little bugger caught his foot on the bench outside yesterday while he was jumping off and managed to crack his head pretty good on the sidewalk but seems fine. I tell you if it’s not one thing lately, it’s another. We’re still not out of the woods with his tummy. If it stays stable another week then that would be very good news indeed so that’s my biggest prayer for the week other than my pops does well on his heart tests.
On to reading – let’s see what am I reading right now. Oh I picked up Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran yesterday morning (sorry I’m so late with it Michelle) and I’ll probably finish it today. As usual she captured my interest from the first paragraph and I’m finding it impossible to put down. I’m also reading Pendragon’s Banner Book 2 by Helen Hollick – another favorite of mine. I have a review of A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve and The Last Will of Moira Leahy by Therese Walsh (which was very good) coming this week.
I got together my book list for the Read-a-thon taking place next Sunday on October 24. I definitely will not read all of these but these are the ones I’ll be choosing from.
- The Frozen Thames by Helen Humphreys
- Dancing with Ana by Nicole Barker
- Prada & Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard
- Imitations of Austen by Jane Greensmith
- Knight’s Angel by Ronda Melendez
- Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel
- The Witch’s Trinity by Erika Mailman
- Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
- Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks
- Janeology by Karen Harrington
A couple of these are review copies but the rest are all my own. I went through my shelves and tried to pick some books that would be fun and easy to read. I think I succeeded but we’ll see. I’m really looking forward to next weekend already and have to get some snackies in order and also my meals ready so I don’t have to waste time cooking.
Well that’s all I have for you today. I’m just enjoying my morning coffee – it’s just starting to turn light outside and it’s quiet inside the house and out. Very nice and Buddy is relaxing up on my shoulder looking outside getting a bit more of a snooze in before he gets himself in gear for the day.
What are all of you up to today? Doing anything special with your family, friends or just relaxing with a book today? I also hope to get some reading of blogs done today after I write my reviews so some of you may see me around eventually… Have a great Sunday everyone! Thanks for visiting Buddy and I!
