Welcome to Fall here in Canada. The above picture is of a park by my house that Sam and I walk by every day. This was taken on a bit of a cloudy day and then I forgot the camera after that to take a better one. It still looks really nice with the leaves turning and the bench just sitting there and waiting for someone to sit down with a book. I might mention though that it is unlikely that anyone will be sitting and reading a book outside anywhere right now. It has turned quite cold here although on the plus side there is no snow yet so that’s good. When you have winter six months of the year, the later the snow comes, the better. The leaves are now falling quite a bit, the grass is yellowish, and there is a definite feel of wintery bluster in the air. This next picture is the tree out in my front yard. I love the colors this tree turns. We have the exact same tree in the backyard and yet it doesn’t seem to turn colors like this one. These fall pics are for everyone’s enjoyment but especially Trish who wanted to see some of the fall colors here.
Aside from freezing and trying to get used to it not much else has been going on. As I said yesterday I seemed to have picked up a stomach bug and I’m still not feeling the best. I did get some reading done, although not as much as I would have liked to. I’m reading Goddess of Vengeance by Jackie Collins right now and I’m supposed to have a review up tomorrow but I may have to move it to Tuesday. It depends how much reading I get done with a headache. I used to love Jackie’s books and it’s kind of fun to get back into one as it’s quite different from what I normally read now. On another note my dad was in a car accident yesterday. He’s fine but sore as he got rear ended and then he hit the car in front of him. Those of you who pray I’d appreciate a prayer for him to feel better soon.
Here’s the happenings this week on the blog…
Monday – Review of Goddess of Vengeance by Jackie Collins (I hope – maybe Tuesday)
Tuesday – Book Trailer of my friend, author Millenia Black’s book, The Great Pretender
Wednesday – Waiting on Wednesday Post
Thursday – Review of Summer in the South by Cathy Holton
Friday – Review of Space by Emily Sue Harvey
Another fun-filled week at Peeking Between the Pages. I had mentioned yesterday that I am reviewing now for The Book Trib’s Review Crew and I have a few reviews posted there now. You can see my page here if you’d like. The reviews I post there I will re-post about a month later here on my blog.
Now for Sammy – what is a Sunday morning or afternoon without Sam right! He hasn’t done anything this week other than chew a chunk out of the basement stairs. I was sorting laundry and wondering why he was so quiet. I should have known he was up to no good. I come around the corner and there he is gnawing on the corner of the stair. I yell and he just looks up at me all innocent like as if to say ‘What mommy, what did I do now?’ LOL. Here’s a few pictures for your enjoyment of my baby boy…
Isn’t he just adorable! So what is everyone doing today? Did you go anywhere or buy anything exciting? I need to live vicariously through you guys today since I haven’t been too motivated myself. What are you all reading? It can’t hurt to add more to my already huge wishlist. Whatever you’re all doing I hope you’re at least enjoying some time with family, friends, or a good book!
