Man, I can't believe it's already the the 27th. This month sure has flown and I've definitely not done as much reading as I wanted to do (looking at you "Little Heaven"). This week has been and up and down of temperatures and they are calling for snow this weekend but not real accumulation - so far.
We watched a few movies over the past week - some good and some "meh." First off was "Girl on a Train." Now I never read the book, although I own it but we were decided to go ahead with it one night and can I just say, I had the ending figured out before we reached the half-way mark. I know it was supposed to have this mind-altering twist at the end and I pretty much just found the whole thing predictable. Next we watched "Hush" on Netflix. I'd heard good things about this and oh my gosh, I loved it. It was so glad and I'm so glad Mr. Barb and I watched it - he liked it too! Finally we watched a lesser known new horror release, "The Axe Murders of Villisca." It wasn't great but surprisingly, it wasn't really horrible either. At least it was entertaining and sometimes that's all you can ask for.
As I mentioned last week, Mr. Barb and the pups got me a necklace for my birthday. I picked it out and wanted something that would look cute, especially in the summer with t-shirts and casual wear. It really means a lot as the there are initials on it for the three boxers we've had that have passed away. It's designed to mimic dog tags and I think the artist did a great job. The actual tag has crystals on it which don't really show up well in the photo. There are also 2 "C"s and 1 "B" for Cicero, Cooper and Barkley. It's cute and it means the world to me so that's what's important.
Finally, I just finished "A Perilous Undertaking" so I have some new books on the stack to choose from. Here's what might be up this coming week.
Make sure to stop by tomorrow because I hit the jackpot on some ARCs I desperately wanted approved for. Until then, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
