Good afternoon everyone! Yes, I’m very late today. I haven’t been extremely motivated this past week so not much has been getting done including visiting your lovely blogs. I hope this week will be a better week for that. One good thing though is the weather is finally getting better! It’s melting and very messy but that’s ok because it means that summer is finally thinking about coming here.
Thankfully even though I haven’t been at all motivated for much of anything I have managed to get some reading done. I’ve got a few things going this week:
Tuesday – Book Spotlight of Daughter’s of Rome by Kate Quinn (I had hoped to have it read but sadly I’m behind)
Wednesday– Guest Post & Giveaway with Kate Quinn, author of Daughter’s of Rome
Thursday – Review of The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry
Friday – Guest Post & Giveaway with Lynne Bryant, author of Catfish Alley
As for Sammy, well he keeps me hopping. He’s a busy little dog and there is never a dull moment with him around. He loves to go walking and he’s actually well behaved even – better than Buddy was at his age. The only problem is it is very messy and dirty out right now with all the melting so when he gets home it’s in the tub he goes and he isn’t really fond of that part. Did I tell you all that he can jump out of the tub? Well he can. When I was giving him a bath a while back I turned to grab something and there was Sammy outside of the tub. lol. I took a couple of pictures this week to share with you all so enjoy…

Sammy is too cute! I love when animals think we can't see them because they can't see us. Especially when their other in is in plain view lol.
Thanks so much for the win, I can't wait to read The Bird House!
Sandy Nawrot says
Don't you look at him and just want to eat him up? He has such a personality. I can just see a wet dog running amuck through the house. Hee hee. I am so excited I won something! Thank you. I will send you an e-mail promptly…
