Happy Sunday! Wow this week sure did pass by fast! What has everyone been up to this weekend? Summer has pretty much arrived here now and the wind has settled down thankfully. It’s been pretty hot the last week or so – really more muggy I would say. I keep waiting for a good storm but so far nothing. I’m curious to see how Sammy is going to react to thunder especially. Buddy never really cared although sometimes he’d bark.
The flowers and the garden are planted. What a chore it is to convince Sam that flowers and dirt are not a food group. I can’t believe how much this dog loves to put things in his mouth. The second he gets outside he’s got his nose down and something in his mouth – half of which I can’t even see until he digs it out of the lawn. We put up a pretty little fence around the garden but he’s sticking his nose right through the railing so I can just imagine how fun it’ll be when things start growing.
On the reading front I’m working on getting Elizabeth I by Margaret George finished for Friday and it’s a humdinger of a book. So far it’s pretty interesting but I haven’t gotten really far into it either yet. I’m also reading Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy for my Reading Cove book club and so far I’m not liking it much at all. I’m still pluggin along with it and while it’s ok, it seems to be more a bunch of short stories that to me aren’t making sense and certainly don’t seem to go together. So, it’s going to be another busy week at Peeking Between the Pages though. Here’s the rundown:
Tuesday – Guest Post/Giveaway with Aine Greaney, author of Dance Lessons
Wednesday – Buddy’s would be Birthday, Guest Post/Giveaway with Diane Chamberlain, author of The Midwife’s Confession
Thursday – Guest Post/Giveaway with Deborah Cloyed, author of The Summer we Came to Life
Friday – review of Elizabeth I by Margaret George
Yup, I better get started on those guest posts already – this should definitely keep me busy this week. What about all of you? What are you reading? Anything exciting going on with your blog this week?
As for Sammy I don’t think I have any cute Sammy stories this week. He’s back in his I don’t want to eat stage. He drives me crazy with that. He eats for a few days, then doesn’t for a few days. Makes no sense to me. He’s a funny little guy though and he loves to snuggle which I love. His newest thing is to jump on my leg to pick him up and he does it often; then he lays his head on my shoulder and makes himself very comfortable. It’s very cute but lets all keep in mind that Sammy is 20 lbs. The good thing is my flabby arms are disappearing – lol. This week I managed to get a few videos of him having a jolly good time chasing his tail. The first one is pretty short and the second one a bit longer. He stopped in between so I thought I might as well post them both. You might want to turn your volume down as I’m talking some baby talk to Sammy to get him to look at the camera at the end. lol. Enjoy…
Well that’s it for this week. I hope you enjoyed Sammy and his little antics. May you all have a great Sunday and week!
