This was a mostly quiet week. We had some rain which I could have done without, especially since my 3 dogs demand walks regardless of the weather. Yes, we took a walk in the rain and it was about as much fun as you would imagine. My neighbors must think that we are idiots and they might be right!
We also had to change the wax ring on one of our toilets. This is not a fun job in case you were wondering. My husband wanted me to help him line up the bolts as he set the toilet in place. Things were not going well and he started to sound frustrated which led to one of my dogs trying to climb on my back as I tried to help get things in place. My dog weighs almost 60 pounds so this was not the help that she intended it to be. After locking the dogs out of the room, things went much more smoothly.
Today we are driving to my youngest daughter’s college to see her trombone recital. It should be fun and I will be happy to see her but I am not all that eager to spend 5 hours in the car. On Monday, we are supposed to be getting our new roof so hopefully, the weather will cooperate and it will go on without any issues.
What I’m Reading
I only finished 3 books this week. I thought that The Donut Trap by Julie Tieu was a fun read. Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé was really good and dealt with some important issues. I was able to scratch an older title off of my NetGalley queue by listening to Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner and I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.
I am almost halfway through Crowfall by Ed McDonald. I really do love this world and am glad that I am finally taking the time to finish the trilogy.
