Weekly Reads (05/25/18) - 3 Day Weekend Version


Happy Memorial Day! (at least for some of us).  Hope everyone had a great week.  It was pretty busy at The Farm but for the life of me, I don't know why it has felt that way.  My Mom has kind of driven me crazy this week with her love life (I am your daughter, NOT your friend, I don't wanna hear your dating issues) and the state prison system has been closing facilities and moving people around so Mr. Barb has had to work late helping process people in.  On top of that, the facility is understaffed which is not good when you just got 152 additional inmates in 3 days.

The boys are doing well.  Last Sunday, we all went shopping at the local pet store in celebration of Booker T's birthday and they got to pick out their own snacks and a toy each.  Cass fell in love with a soft white lamb that he is now carrying everywhere - I think the dog has issues.  Booker T picked a pig wearing sunglasses with racing stripes down it's back that oinks.  I would respect nothing less from him.  Introducing Lammy and Piggy...aren't we so original???



We watched some movies this week.  A new horror called "The Nanny" which was more fantasy than horror and involved fairies and "Island Zero" which really wasn't too bad considering I've never heard  of it.  I also started season 2 of "13 Reasons Why."  I'm not a huge fan of the show but it has kind of sucked me in and hey, it good filler.  I hesitate to say I'm in a reading slump because I love both books I'm reading, but I've just done other stuff this week.  So basically I'm still reading "Meg" and "Undead Girl Gang" although I should be wrapping up "Meg" tonight.  When they are finished, these are the next 3 on the agenda.  I would love to finish them before the month is out to make up for this week's slacking.  



So I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and stayed tune for an EPIC library haul tomorrow.  I LOVE my library!

    1. Only 3 chapters in but I can already tell it's going to be dark. Saving it for my sci-fi challenge starting Friday (which includes fantasy too).

  5. Ooh how is Meg? I can't WAIT for that movie. And glad Booker T and Cass got some goodies. :)

    Lol about dating issues. My mom's one of those people that occasionally overshares certain things ha ha and some times I'm like mom, stop! :)

    Happy Memorial Day weekend!

  6. I love your boys choice of toys to play with! I can imagine Booker T with his oinking friend! I'm still on a horror kick book wise so I need to plan out my reading for June based around that.

    1. Yay for horror. Yes, the animals are very fitting for The Farm.

  7. I remember a time when my Cookie picked up a rubber duck at the pet store and carried it around in her mouth. Of course, we had to buy it for her. I hope you enjoy your planned reading. To Kill a Kingdom sounds interesting.

    1. I think it's so cute when they pick out their own toys. At almost 8, Booker is kind of out of the toy phase (Although he still loves to play tug). Cass ADORES his sheep.
