This was probably our last week of normalcy for a while. My Stella’s surgery is Thursday and I admit that I am nervous about it. We now have a soft cone for her to wear and a sling to use to help her get around when necessary. She will spend the next 6 months on a leash every time she needs to go outside to stop her from running or jumping. I am not looking forward to those 5 am potty breaks.
I received so much book mail this week! Some of the packages came as a total surprise. It felt a little bit like Christmas! I have been reading faster lately but I am going to have to speed it up a bit more if I want to have a chance at keeping up…lol.
We ended the week by going to my daughter’s concert. She joined a local community band since she has been home student teaching. We also did a small shaped puzzle. We usually only do puzzles with at least 1,000 pieces but we thought this 300-piece puzzle looked fun so we decided to give it a try.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I finished 7 books this week. Eat Slay Love by Jesse Petersen was a fun zombie story that I enjoyed despite having some problems with the audio. Dial A for Aunties by Jese Q. Sutanto was very entertaining so I decided to jump right into Four Aunties and a Wedding. All That Is Mine I Carry with Me by William Landay kept me guessing until the very end. My favorite book of the week was Both Feet in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. I didn’t have as much luck with The Witch and the Vampire by Francesa Flores which I thought was just okay. Roaring Dawn by Colleen Gleason was a great conclusion to the Macey Gardella & Max Denton series.
I just started Smolder by Laurell K. Hamilton and I haven’t formed an opinion just yet.
