Weekly Reads (07/08/16)

This has been a heck of a stay-cation so far.  As I am typing this (Thursday - getting read for Friday's post) I can say I am getting a lot of things done and am enjoying myself, but not doing as much reading as I had hoped.  We had friends and family over for a cookout on 7/3 since the 4th called for rain all day.  On last Friday, Booker T had to go back to the ER vet for his 3rd trip in as many weeks, but I can say after much care and attention, I think he is finally on the mend.  However, the 4th has been a horrible holiday in that the idiots in our neighborhood let off tons of fireworks Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday night, Monday night and Tuesday night.  On two occasions, they were trying to shoot out electric lines and street lights so at least the cops responded to that.  Needless to say, I was ready for the holiday to be over.  We did discover thought that doggy Xanax (same as human Xanax) does help take the edge off Booker's anxiety and it will be helpful with storms.  He still has about 2 weeks of meds to take though.

I also got some updates done to the house and hung some pics and out up a new cube stand in one room so hopefully I will add some pics soon. We also went to visit Grandpa and he had a fish fry yesteday (almost 95 and he still loves to fish!)  As for the dreaded reading, I managed to read an ARC novella from Tor, which I really enjoyed, and 2 graphic novels.  There are 4 days left to vacation so I still hope to get a book or two finished.  For now, the stack looks the same as last week so I will spare you the duplication - The Hatching, Madness of Mercury and Dog Gone.

Hope everyone else had a great week!


  1. Poor Booker T...I hate fireworks too and wish our stupid bonfire night would get cancelled forever. I hope your poor boy is on the mend after all his illness-give him a big hug from me!

  2. Awe I hope Booker T is feeling much better. <3

  3. Aww sorry Booker T had to go to the ER vet :-/ but I'm glad he's doing better now. And wow, the people in your neighborhood do sound like idiots -_- It sounds like you did at least get some productive stuff done though and had some fun at the fish fry!

  4. Hope everything goes well with T and you get in some good reading! :)
