So. It’s a new month. And we’re halfway through this year. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. I haven’t accomplished near what I’d planned. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. Anyway, here in the States, it’s a federal holiday so the government, banks and the post office is closed. I always feel sorry for folks in retail and service industries.
So, stuff happened last week. I don’t remember much of what occurred. Stormy was here Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I took Drover (my SUV) in for his 60K check-up. People popped fireworks and freaked my dogs out. I wrote a little. Not enough. My Cards aren’t playing that great. They have moments of greatness swallowed up by walks and not much offense.
Saturday, we met the Kids for lunch at our fave Mexican restaurant. The food is always perfect! Jake has gotten to go with me to the dealership–a new place, and several familiar places. He’s such a good boy.
“The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch” is getting OMGWTFBBQ covered in crazy sauce. Every episode, I worry that it’s the season finale and I freak. I know there’s another episode this week, at least. If y’all haven’t watched that show, find it and stream all the seasons! Just sayin’.
Reading was a mixed bag, mostly good. Lots of relistens (A. Zavarelli’s Boston Underworld series), to more mafia-type books that were so-so, and a new release by Suzanne Wright, WHEN HE”S AN ALPHA. It was totally enjoyable. Currently, I’m doing a relisten to Jennifer Estep’s KILL THE QUEEN. I shelved this on my “best book of the year” category on Goodreads the first time I read it. It’s still all kinds of awesome. Magical fantasy with some romance at its best! The 4th book in the series release tomorrow. Yes, I will be doing a marathon.
The only productive thing I did all week was finally clearing out my pantry. I won’t mention some of the expiration dates. Yes, a bunch got tossed and other stuff got consolodated–like the 3 bottles of window cleaner. Don’t ask! I told LG that I was starting to feel like a hoarder. Anyway, my next step is to finally sort through the two laundry baskets of junk I cleared off the kitchen counter when I redid the backsplash. A lot of extraneous stuff is getting sorted and going to the local resale shop that supports victims of domestic violence.
And that’s it. That was my week and my weekend and today? Not sure what I’m doing today except I’m sorta craving BBQ now so maybe LG and i will eat out again tonight. Are you off today? Are you continuig the celebration or is it live as usual in your neck of the woods?
