Hi everyone. It seems ages since I’ve done a Sunday post. First off I’d like to apologize for not doing a lot of commenting on blogs this last bit. When the weather gets cold here my rheumatoid arthritis sets into my hands with a vengeance. They’ve been awfully sore and my computer time has been kind of limited to getting my posts done for the week. This year seems to be worse on my joints than last year so maybe that has something to do with getting yet another year older. lol. Anyhow, I hope to still keep in touch but it may not be as often as before.
In other news I realize I haven’t done an update on my dad for a while now. He is going to be seeing a heart surgeon and they are going to be essentially kick starting his heart to see if it will fix the condition he has. Seems very scary to me and I’m very nervous about him having it done but at the same time this is apparently something they do quite often.
Buddy is still having some tummy troubles although not as bad as before. We’re going to try him on a different food to see if that helps as it could be food allergies giving him trouble. I’d just really like to get him settled so he can go back to his old life of getting treats and all that good stuff. The poor little guy still runs to his cupboard for his treats and it breaks my heart. I bought him a new coat for the winter and he let me take a couple of pictures of him this morning for you all. He’s just a big furball right now as he gets much too stressed when he has a haircut so the vet wants me to hold off. I’m going to try to thin out his hair somehow at least but haven’t figured out a good way yet.
Not much else going on here. The weather is getting cold but luckily enough still no snow. I’m hoping it stays that way clear into December if not further. That would make our winter very short and that’s always a good thing.
Oh yeh, I caved and bought myself a Sony eReader and I actually like it quite a bit. It’s surprisingly easy on the eyes which I really like. I’ve taken to reading it at night as I was having a lot of trouble with print copies of books at night even with a light on. Right now on my eReader I’m reading a book called Raising Rain by Debbie Fuller Thomas and really liking it. Also I’ve got Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout and Bel Canto by Ann Patchett on the go on there. In paper copies I’ve got The Girl on Legare Street by Karen White and The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox on the go.
So that’s the news from me for the last little while. My goodness I have certainly babbled on here this morning. Well I’m off to write a review for you all for tomorrow morning on a very enjoyable book I read called Now and Then by Jacqueline Sheehan. I also have a review this week sometime on John Saul’s newest one called House of Reckoning which was really good as well. I’ve been really lucking out on the books I’ve been reading lately.
So, what is everyone up to today? Anyone do anything exciting this weekend? I sure hope you all have a great week!
