Weekly Wrap Up #408

I am really excited to participate in The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Reading Reality.

My Life

This was a pretty good week. My ankle doesn’t really hurt but it is still bigger than it should be. I am wondering if it will ever go back to its original size at this point. I only had to work 2 shifts at the book store which was a nice break but things were kind of crazy at my day job. We left work early on Monday to watch the eclipse. We were at 99% totality in my region. I was just glad to get some extra time at home before I had to go back out to the go to work at my part-time gig.

A week or so ago one of my dogs got a small injury on her side. We’re not really sure what she did and she isn’t talking. On Monday night while I was at the bookstore, she made a mess of things and had a huge open wound when I got home. I put a cone on her and tried to clean it up. I thought I would need to take time off work to let the vet look at her but it looked much better the next morning. Since I no longer trust her to leave it alone, Molly has worn the cone all week. She’s not a fan. We are now starting to work in some cone-free time when we can keep an eye on her.

How was your week?

What I’m Reading

I was able to finish 3 audiobooks this week. I don’t know why I waited so long to read Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy because I absolutely loved it. Blake and Jess were fantastic! I then picked up a completely different kind of story with The Infiltrator by T.R. Hendricks, an action-packed military thriller. I am surprised by just how much I enjoyed Not Like Other Girls by Meredith Adamo.

I didn’t read any of The Night Ends with Fire by K.X. Song but I hope to get back to it very soon – It’s good! I did spend some quality time reading Leather & Lark by Brynne Weaver and am really enjoying it. I am about halfway through Ghost Station by S.A. Barnes and can’t wait to see what will happen next.

Books Added

Between Two Trailers by J. Dana Trent (Publisher); The Secret Language of Birds by Lynne Kelly (Publisher); The One That Got Away with Murder by Trish Lundy (Publisher)

  1. I remember when I hurt my toe (must have been broken), took a month for it to be normal again. So I can imagine your ankle must be swollen long

  2. That was nice that you got to leave early for the eclipse! We all work from home so we just stepped outside a few times to watch the progress! It was still pretty cool for not being 100% totality like last time. Aww! Poor puppy! At least she’s doing well with the Cone of Shame! Our one dog was a beast when he had to wear it! He’d find ways to destroy whatever cone we had on him. I remember with the plastic ones my mom had to add “extenders” because he somehow found a way to reach whatever wound we were trying to keep him away from. And in return, he’d whack our shins with the cone. I miss that little dork. Lol. Glad to hear your ankle is doing better too!

    Nice new reads! These are all totally new to me ones but I hope you will enjoy them all!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I’m glad you are getting over the pain. Everything takes time. Poor Molly. But you have to protect her from herself. Love the soft looking cone. You are getting in some good reading too.

    Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  4. Yay for time away from the second job and your ankle feeling better. We enjoyed going outside to see the eclipse and lucked out that we’re in a 100% Totality for it.

    Glad you loved Good Boy as much as I do. Hopefully your pup will continue to heal.

    Have a good week, Carole!

  5. I hope Molly’s wound is healing nicely! I feel for her, having to wear that cone, but it sounds like it was necessary. It looks like you got some great books in this past week! I hope you have a great week and happy reading, Carole!

  6. Poor Molly I hope she continues to improve
    it was good to catch up a little
    I got to see the eclipse too with Bill’s Hospice nurse and my mom it was so much better than in 2017 when a cloud blocked the best of it

  7. Oh poor Molly! She looks quite indignant but adorable. We have injuries all the time where the owners have no idea how the dog got hurt. They are talented that way! Glad she’s okay though. I’m so glad your ankle is better! It’s been awhile since I really sprained my ankle (knock on wood) but it does take awhile for the swelling to go away completely and even now mine will swell if I’ve had a long day on my feet but I’ve sprained the same ankle multiple times so hopefully your swelling will go away and stay that way! I hope you’re having a great week!
