Weekly Reads (02/07/18) ARRRGGGHHH.....just arrgggghhh!



So does the title of my post tell you anything about my week???? Come on take a guess???   The beginning of the week I felt like....


Which then quickly progressed to

And I ended up at 

Let's just wrap it up by saying NEIGHBORS....stupid 20 year old harassing neighbors.  Which has led to me seeking a protection order...and lots and lots of weapons (but don't worry, I have a permit).

On to better things.  Everyone is fine at The Farm and although it's been somewhat stressful, we've tried to enjoy some movies and I've tried to read some good books.  In addition, so far I'm super pleased with the blog content I've shared in February and am glad people signed up for my "They Call It Puppy Love" challenge.  Keep your eyes open next week for another author interview which is part of Stormi's Get Cozy With Mysteries series.

We watched a stupid horror movie called "Delirium" which was only slightly better than another stupid horror movie we watched called "House of the Witch."  Should have known by the lack of a creative title.  We caught "Cloverfield: Paradox" on Netflix and it's the third Cloverfield movie which should tie in to the other ones but I can't figure out how.  But hey, it takes place in space so that was kind of fun.  Although I had definite Alien flashbacks...but with worms (gotta see it to believe it).  However, finally we watched this beautiful movie....


Action, adventure, and snow (and Jason Momoa if that floats your boat).  It was really a good movie and I would highly recommend  it.

So I did get some books read which means some new ones are up on the stack.  Of course, the last one I read was a total impulse read so who knows what's really gonna happen.


So I hope you all had a wonderful week and have some great reading planned this weekend!

  1. That is very worrying news from the farm. I hope you guys are ok. I had five years of misery with problem neighbours but it was verbal for the most part. I dread to think what you guys are putting up with. I'm glad you have protection though. You guys take care.

    1. It's basically been verbal here too but threats were made and the twit called me at work so I felt an order was needed. Neighbors can be the worst sometimes.

  3. It's awful to hear your'e having trouble with your neighbours. I hope things blow over.
    And - any film with Jason Momoa in has got to be worth a couple of hours out of my day. He's decidedly easy on the eye.
    Lynn :D

  5. Hope those neighbors have been leaving you alone. :( Sounds like a bad run of movies and one gem. :) I hope This Plot is Murder gets better since I have to read it too...lol. Waiting for you to let me know if I need to request The Cruel Prince. :)

  6. Yikes, sorry to hear about the neighbors. sound like jerks. :)

    I saw Cloverfield PAradox and thought it was pretty good. Howe about that end? That cracked me up. But yeah figuring out how it draws the other two movies together is a little more... difficult :)

    1. Yes the end was rather humorous - in a terrifying way. All that work......

  8. I hope the problems with your neighbor get better. Pretty awful to have to get a protection order.

    I haven't heard of Braven. I'll have to check it out. I hope the next week is a better week for you.

  9. I've been through crappy neighbors before and can sympathize. Just don't shoot them! LOL I just watched The Ritual on Netflix and it was pretty good. I'm looking forward to the Winter Olympics now.

    1. I won't shoot them. I'm really not that kind of person ;) I believe deterrence is a much better option.

  10. Yikes! I hope everything works out regarding you neighbor - that sounds like it must be a really stressful situation. Glad to hear your February blog content is going well! I also noticed the new Cloverfield moving on netflix and can't figure out how its supposed to tie to the other movie... oh well! Hope you have a great weekend and happy reading :)

    1. I tried to figure out and Mr. Barb watched some YouTube videos but they made my head hurt.

  11. Neighbor trouble sounds like no fun. I am sorry you are dealing with that. I had a neighbor for a bit that I KNEW did something to my dogs. I caught him screaming at them one day when he thought I wasn't around. One of my dogs got to the point that she was afraid to go outside. Let's just say that I didn't cry when he moved out. I hope your situation is resolved quickly.

    1. That would do me in! Don't mess with my family - especially the 4-legged ones.

  12. Sorry to hear about your neighbor troubles. I am curious of what your thoughts on the Holly Black book will be. Hope you have a better week next week.

    1. Thanks. So far the book is okay but I'm really not that far.

  13. I'm going to have to check out the Cloverfield Paradox movie on Netflix when I can. They kinda snuck it in there, didn't they?

    1. Yes, I heard they dropped it right after the Super Bowl. I don't think anyone knew it was coming.

  14. Ugh, this is why I want to move away from people. I’m so sorry this is happening to you. When my neighbor put his house up for sale I was terrified of who might move in. My family thought I was being paranoid. I think not!

    1. No, it's always scary. These people are renters which I think have a tendency to be even worse.

  15. omg when I read your other post I didn't realized it was this serious when you said you were having a crappy week!!!Sorry to here it went as far as protection order and weapons! I know you say you guys are ok but one can't help but worry!
    I'm having mixed feeling too about the new Cloverfield movie ut let's see. And yes. Jason Momoa does rocks the boat :)

  18. Oh yes Jason Momoa definitely floats my boat and I love your gifs but I'm sorry and terrified of your neighbours. I'm glad you're okay. I have loud neighbours up above me that drink and do drugs and she has anger issues with slamming doors and yelling. grrrrr so I can relate.

  19. You're going through all that and you still found time to read! You're my hero! I haven't been able to read anything this month and even missed my Sunday Post completely! Put the knife down and I'll send internet hugs! And yes, Jason Momoa! <3
