This is my neighbor’s apple tree. Is it not gorgeous! Ours is in a remission this year and only has a few blossoms so I thought I’d take advantage of my mom and dad #2’s next door instead. I think apple trees have to be one of my favorites when they bloom – I love the pure white blossoms.
Good day everyone – although it’s almost over already. It’s been a fairly warm day here today but we just can’t seem to get rid of the wind. Sammy still isn’t fond of the warm weather. Even on our walks his main mission is just to get home again. I’m going to book him in for a grooming appt so maybe it’ll help when he’s a bit cooler. Still it’s nice to finally get flowers and gardens planted and to see flowers! The apple trees are blooming as are others and while they’re beautiful they sure aren’t nice to someone with allergies. Which reminds me I must apologize for being so absent for this last while. I injured my shoulder/neck somehow – well I think it was when I was packing up some books to give to charity and wrenched something. Either way I was totally out of commission and in a great deal of pain. I couldn’t even blog for about 4 days there which is unusual for me and truth be told it’s just finally starting feeling better yesterday. Poor Sammy, always begging to be lifted and I couldn’t. When he gives me that ‘woe is me’ look, my heart melts.
Anyhow, not much else going on. One would think that when you can’t barely move an arm you’d get lots of reading done but that isn’t so for me. I couldn’t even concentrate on reading and it was very frustrating. Anyhow right now I’m reading The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen for review on Monday and I’m really enjoying it. I’m hoping to finish it up tonight as tomorrow one of my best friends is coming over to celebrate her birthday so we’re going to have presents, cake and a movie. I sure don’t want to be finishing up a book and a review then. lol. Other than that next week is completely booked with book spotlights, giveaways and a few reviews – a busy, busy week ahead! I also hope to do some serious blog visiting!

So that’s about it for this week. I’ve got this extra cute picture to share with you this week of Sam. He was sitting in front of me and he has such long ears that sometimes they flop over his head and it just looks too cute. He has the habit when he’s sleeping of flopping them over his eyes. He’s such a personality this dog. His newest game is to bury his sock and then he’ll come and sit in front of me until I get up and go look for it. I go to where he has it and I toss things around asking him where it is and then of course I find it and his little eyeballs get all big and excited so I throw it, he chases after it, and then we start over. lol. That pup of mine has me completely wound around his little paw.
Yup I’m cute! How do you like my new hairstyle – it’s called the Ear Flip.
I hope you all have a great week and will stop by and join in on all the happenings here. I will be visiting this week and getting caught up once again!
