Happy Sunday everyone!
Happy Sunday everyone! What’s everybody up to this weekend? Is anyone reading anything really awesome? I hope none of you are in the areas that have been getting hit so hard with the storms. If you are my thoughts and prayers are with you. In comparison I can’t complain about our weather. It’s been cool but as I said before spring is almost here so that’s ok. Sammy has been trying valiantly to climb all the snowbanks and I can see that he will get stuck one day and I highly doubt I can lift his heavy butt out. lol.
So I said last week that I was trying to get some crocheting done and this week I started a simple blanket in knitting. I took a couple of pictures and I was lazy so I just set them down on the floor and as you can plainly see Sammy had to be right in the middle of them.
The first one is of my knitting – if any of you have made the granny square dish cloths, then this is the same concept. You can make a blanket the same way by adding stitches until you have your desired size and then decreasing back down. It actually turns out quite nice and what I like is that it’s easy to do while watching tv or reading on my iPad.
The second one is my crocheting and ignore all the pieces of yarn that aren’t weaved in yet. This is also really easy to do while watching tv or reading. I usually shy away from the complicated things that I have to count on because I do like to multitask. I have such a pile of yarn that I’m thinking of throwing together a few blankets and seeing if the cancer institute here still takes them or we have an old folks home a few blocks away and maybe they’d like them too. I sure can’t imagine using them all myself.
On the reading front I haven’t been doing too bad. I read both of Meg Cabot’s books, Insatiable and Overbite and liked both. Right now I’m reading The King’s Agent by Donna Russo Morin for my review tomorrow and enjoying it. Here’s what the week looks like….
Monday – Review of The King’s Agent by Donna Russo Morin
Tuesday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of Blood Orchids by Toby Neal
Wednesday – Guest Post with Naomi King, author of Abby Finds Her Calling & Giveaway
Thursday – Review of The Turning of Anne Merrick by Christine Blevins
Friday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of Another Piece of My Heart by Jane Green
Saturday – Book Spotlight/Giveaway of the White Pearl by Kate Furnivall
Sunday – Something to celebrate my Blogiversary which is on March 8!
So another really busy week here on the blog. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing to celebrate my blogiversary but it’ll be some kind of giveaway I imagine. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 4 years already. It sure has gone by in a flash!
Now for Sammy this week I thought I’d share this video of him having a jolly good time chasing me around the house to get my sock and then of course he got it. Watch your volume though as I was laughing and yelping at him while he was almost landing me on my butt. It’s a bit unsteady as well for obvious reasons – it’s really hard to take video when being attacked by your pup!
And then this was the all innocent Sammy when I showed him just what he had done to aforementioned sock!
Awwwwwwww, come on mommy – it’s not that bad! It’s just a little teeny tiny hole. Come on mommy… look how cute I am – you know you can’t resist this face and this oh so pathetic look that I have mastered just for you!
There is certainly never a dull day with Sam in the house. He continually keeps me on my toes or off of them occasionally. lol. If I had even a third of his energy I’d be one happy gal!

Well that’s all for this week. I don’t think I’ll be up to much this week other than I hope getting ahead on my reading. I’ve got a ton of organizing in my basement I want to get started on as well so I may tackle that too. Have a great week everyone!
