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!
