Well friends it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Sunday Ramblings. No excuse really. I just couldn’t seem to find the energy to get one written out. I’m back suffering my migraines and they really drain me. However, this week I am putting my foot down and getting a post written.
There hasn’t been a whole lot going on in the life of me. It’s winter here and we Canadians tend to hibernate in the winter – well at least some of us do and I’m one of them. Our temperatures have taken a serious tumble downwards in the last few weeks and it’s just so, so cold. You can’t go outside without full winter duds or you’ll find your skin freezing within minutes. Again, I have to wonder why I continue to live here – oh yeah, family and friends! Anyhow, at least we haven’t gotten any more huge dumps of snow but I’ll tell you spring and summer can’t come fast enough for this girl.
On the reading front I’m currently reading Love, Love, Love by Deborah Reber. It’s a young adult novel and really cute so far – I’m enjoying it. I’m also reading The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner for his blog tour with Pump Up Your Book and really enjoying that one – the Tudors are always my favorite to read about. This week is a busy one here at Peeking Between the Pages – here’s the lineup as it stands now:
Tuesday – I hope my review of Love, Love, Love by Deborah Reber (this may not happen)
Wednesday – I hope a guest post with Deborah Reber (won’t happen if I don’t finish book)
Thursday – review of The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner
Friday – guest post with C.W. Gortner
Whew! I get tired just looking at that. What I do know is I’d best get down to some serious reading. lol. Thank goodness both books are really good and have captured my ever wandering attention.
On the Sammy front things are going much better. He is becoming much more behaved everyday, thank goodness. He can still be a little terror at least a few times a day but now he is much more prone to actually listening. I had him at the vets last week and he said Sammy was chubby so I said he isn’t fat though and my vet looked at me, laughed, and said yes he is. lol. It’s ok though because he’s a puppy and up to 2 years he’s still growing into himself. He’s already 18 lbs though and he’s a heavy little guy.
I’m finding that Sammy and me are forming a bond now. I think at first I expected so much because I missed the Budster so terribly. I talked with a girl at the vets that I had become friendly with when taking Buddy and she said that you have to give it time. I had Buddy for so long that he was just another piece of me. So will Sammy be that; he’s already getting there but it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, patience and just being together. He’s definitely my puppy though. He follows me around absolutely everywhere except when he’s off getting in trouble chewing a baseboard or something and he cries up a terrible storm when I’m not around. I love him so much that it scares me especially after Buddy but I know I can’t live thinking like that. I just have to enjoy now and love my Sammy Bear.
So, I’m off to do some reading and have some more coffee but not before I leave you with a few pictures of Sammy. He desperately needs a haircut but with our cold weather I haven’t yet. It’s just too cold. Hopefully soon the weather will break and I’ll see what kind of a mess I can make. lol. So what are all of you up to today? I hope whatever it is that you are having a wonderful and relaxing day!
