Weekly Read (03/30/18)


So I hope everyone that celebrates, no matter how, has a Happy Easter this weekend.  I actually get off for Good Friday so hopefully as you are reading this I am enjoying some "chill" time.  I did do some Easter shopping for the pups so they will have some fun Sunday but don't worry, no live bunnies or chicks.

So I watched quite a bit of "Santa Clarita Diet" this week which was kind of hard.  Mr. Barb doesn't like it and I hate to "lock" myself upstairs to watch it so I would catch episodes while he was cooking, on the computer or at the gym when I had time.  I have 2 more to watch and I know I'm going to miss it once it's over.  We also watched "The Last Jedi."  I liked it and I know there are HARD CORE Star Wars fans out there so please don't be offended when I say that part of the time I watch, I'm kind of lost.  However, I did enjoy it.  

So I hope to get some cleaning done this weekend as well as a visit to Gpa who is a tad under the weather.  I need to clean out my closet and switch out winter/spring stuff and toss some things.  I'm sure I can encourage the pups to help me on that one.  On a different note, look at the ring Mr. Barb got me - I love turquoise and think it's super cute.



So I started "The Wolves of Winter" and am enjoying it so far even though I'm not that far in yet.  I also need to finish "Revival" before it's due back to Hoopla.  The last book I'd like to get to this week in a new one so here's a sneak peak at tomorrow's haul.  I can't wait to see what happens in the final Sin du Jour book even reading it will be bittersweet.  Looks like I have some great reading ahead.



So how was your week and what are you reading and watching?

  1. LOL I'm glad to hear you enjoyed The Last Jedi...I would count myself a Star Wars "hardcore fan" but even I have to admit there were plenty of flaws with this one, but it was fun and ultimately I guess that's all that really matters!

    1. I'm glad I watched it but it was definitely sad with it being Fisher's last one. I didn't know her daughter was in it though. That kind of surprised me.

  3. I feel bad because I stopped reading Matt Wallace's series after book three or four, but one day I may go back and catch up. My son has been home for Spring Break this week but he wants to go back to the dorms tomorrow so he won't even be here for Easter! It feels so strange...

    1. Bummer that he's leaving early but good that you have a nice visit. I have a hard time thinking Spring Break as when I took the dogs out at 3am, it was snowing!

  5. Mr. Barb has great taste in jewelry! Too bad he doesn't Santa Clarita Diet though. My husband loves it but we haven't caught the new season just yet. Our schedules have been nutty so there's been very little tv watching this week. I hope you and the boys have a great holiday :)

  9. That ring is super cute and Mr Barb even more so for getting it for you lol ! I tried watching the Santa Clara Diet in s1, but it just got too quirky for me. Did watch The Commuter with Liam Neeson and it's official, no form of transport can stand up against his wrath lol

  10. Wow I never heard of "Santa Clarita Diet" before and now twice! You and Laura mentioned today! I'll have to check it out! I hear you I didn't like the "The Last Jedi." as much as I though I would either!

    I can't wait to hear about "The Wolves of Winter" ! I JUST got Snowblind from the library which you recommended! is on CDs which I'm not a big fan but let's see!

    I hope you guys have a great Easter and the puppies enjoy their treats!
