Happy Sunday everyone! Have you all had a good weekend? It hasn’t been too bad here this weekend. It’s most definitely fall though (Trish, I will get you some pics of the trees turning color just as soon as they do- they’ve started but not enough yet). It’s been quite cool, rainy, and foggy all last week but finally on the weekend the sun made an appearance and while it’s cool out it’s still nicer with the sun. I started out the weekend with hopes of getting lots of reading done but as usual I got sidetracked by just about everything else. I’m not impressed with this slump of mine and just have no idea already what to do to get rid of it. It’s not the books because what I’m reading is good so I’m at a loss as to what’s causing it.
As I told you all before our flowers and gardens are pretty much done. The marigolds are still hanging on though but earlier this week I looked out front to find a nice surprise – this rose in full bloom despite the very cool temperatures in the morning. Isn’t it just beautiful?
This week isn’t too busy on the blog thankfully although I do have a few reviews which means I need to get my butt in gear and get reading. Here’s what’s going on…
Monday – Book Spotlight & Giveaway of Recipes for Life by Linda Evans
Tuesday – Review of The Manicurist by Phyllis Schieber
Wednesday & Thursday – nothing planned
Friday – Review of Veronica’s Nap by Sharon Bially
So, not too busy thankfully. How about you – do you have anything coming up on your blog this week? What are you all reading right now?
As for Sammy, well he’s busy as always. I’ve got to book him in for a haircut this week – hopefully it’ll last him till about January. I don’t like cutting him too much in the winter because it’s so cold here and he does have a nice, warm coat and he refuses to wear any kind of clothes so he needs something. I have one little story about him this week. I make my breakfast and then sit in the living room in the morning while he looks out the window. So I brought in my bowl of peaches and toast and went back for my coffee. I come back around the corner and there’s Sam standing up on the table with his front paws lapping up my peaches! He gets into almost everything but that was the first time he snacked on my breakfast. I’ve got a few pictures for your enjoyment this week; not that it was any easier to get a picture but I just sat with the camera pointed at him until I could get some kind of shot. lol.
Oh boy, I’m going to get this bone eaten sooner or later! Of course it would help if mommy wouldn’t keep taking it away and trimming it.
Even better than a bone! A sock!
Ok Mommy, now what can I get into???
That’s it for this week folks. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and get to do something you really want. I’m going to try reading again along with a bit of housework that I keep putting off. See you all in blogland this week!
