Good morning everyone! I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful weekend! It’s been quite nice here with the weather half decent finally. If we could just get rid of the wind then it would be awesome but I’m not complaining – anything is better than all that snow we had. Things are green now and flowers are blooming and smelling lovely and that’s enough to make anyone happy. Here’s a picture of our apple tree out front. It looked so beautiful with it’s pure white blossoms and this year it was so full. It’s just too bad it doesn’t last all summer.
On the book front I’ve been pretty slow lately. I don’t know if it’s a reading slump per say but I just can’t seem to keep my attention focused for very long at a time. I finished up Island Girl by Lynda Simmons for my book review tomorrow and I really enjoyed it. I’m finishing up Elizabeth I by Margaret George for review this week as well- either Wednesday or Thursday. Other than that I’m going to have a guest post by Lynda Simmons and a guest post by Cathy Holton, author of Summer in the South this week. I’m going to be starting Summer in the South soon for a review next week and I’m anxious to read it. I just loved her novel Beach Trip. Has anyone read it – it’s really good; you can see my review here if you’d like to read it.
On to Sammy news. I finally had him neutered and he had extra dew claws on both his hind paws so those had to be removed as well. I was really nervous – actually sick over having to take him in. There’s just too many bad memories of taking Buddy in there and then what happened. Thankfully though all turned out for the best and he’s doing well. He’s had to have the bandages on his feet for two weeks though – they come off this Tuesday along with the stitches – and he’s been none too happy about that. Try keeping a dog away from chewing the bandages off his feet – well it’s no easy task I can tell you. So, I have a few pictures of Sammy’s ordeal for your viewing pleasure this weekend…
Well that’s it for me this weekend. I’m going to have another cup of coffee, take Sam for his walk and I hope relax and read. I don’t want to do any housework or anything else even remotely like work. I just want to sit and read! What are you all up to today? I hope doing something you really enjoy!
