Weekly reads (12/30/16) - Last of the Year!
I hope everyone out there who celebrated had a wonderful Christmas holiday and are ready for a safe and happy New Year. Christmas Day went off without a hitch at The Farm. Mr. Barb smoked the ham and Mom and Grandpa came for dinner. Mom surprised me by giving me my late father's class ring for Christmas as well as a necklace that belonged to my great-grandmother. It was a very touching and thoughtful gift and I'd be lying if I said it didn't catch me off guard.
I was spoiled by Mr. Barb and I did likewise. Also, you'll be glad to know the pups hit the jackpot. Both got lots of toys and snacks as well as new beds and blankets. Cass received several toys of the bird-nature since he is obsessed with them in general and Booker T is more of a "give me a snack" kind of guy. However, he did get a football which we have already tested out in a local field.
We're visiting some friends for a few hours this evening, but after that, I'm hoping for a quiet and relaxing three day weekend before heading back to work, I finished one book this week and am almost finished with a second (and since I am typing this in advance, I may actually be done with it by the time you read this. Anyway, here are the next three books up on the pile.
I am loving "Pit Perfect." It's a very quick read and is pretty much a cozy paranormal read. Can't wait to get my review posted. Stormi and I are doing a Tag Team read of "Little Heaven" and although I own several books by this author, this will be the first one I have read. Finally, I need to get "Certain Dark Things" back to the library within the next two weeks so I need to get busy on it as well.
Hope everyone enjoys the best 2017 has to offer! The pups send well wishes from The Farm.
