Another busy week has passed. Our siding was completed last Sunday just as it was getting dark. Even though we weren’t doing the installation, it was exhausting for us. The constant banging and trying to keep the dogs calm all weekend didn’t leave a lot of room for any rest before I had to head back to work on Monday. We are thrilled with the results and just love how it turned out. We added a 3 ft stone wall across the front of the house and had insulated siding installed. We also had siding installed on our shed to match the house (you can see the shed peeking out on the right side of the photo). I was worried about how my blue door would look since I got rid of the matching shutters but I do like it. We are going to get rid of the larger rose bushes in front of the house and replace them with some landscaping we like more this spring.
I had a really hard time focusing on certain things this week. I didn’t want to mess with the blog or write reviews so I decided to take a short break. I really wanted to take a day off work so I could read World Between by Sarah Lyons Fleming once I had it on my Kindle. There are very few authors that can make me want to drop everything like that. I didn’t take a day off but enjoyed my evenings curled up with this book.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
It didn’t feel like it but I finished 4 books this week. I finished The Untold Story by Genevieve Cogman last Sunday. I have loved this series and actually had no idea it was ending but I thought that this book did a great job of wrapping things up. I finished up Side Jobs by Jim Butcher during my workday on Monday. I had no idea that Sarah Lyons Fleming had a new book coming out this week but I downloaded World Between just as soon as I heard the news. I just had to start reading it right away and spent most of my week catching up with some much-loved characters. The Twelve Dogs of Christmas by Lizzie Shane was the fun romance that I really needed this week.
At one point this week, I had 7 books going. I was a mess. I have read just a bit of A Reason for Hope by Kristin von Kreisler and I believe that the cute dog on the cover isn’t going to let me down. Hello, Transcriber by Hannah Morrissey has had a very promising start and I hope to spend some time with it today. I have listened to almost 2 hours of The Siren by Katherine St. John but then decided I was in the mood for something else. I decided to give True Crime Story by Joseph Knox a try and ended up listening to a little more than an hour before deciding to switch gears. I listened to almost half of The Anual Migration of Clouds by Premee Mohamed and hope to get back to it soon.
