What's Happening (10-03-20) - Two in a Row...Who is this person?


So I'm doing things a tad bit differently this year and will be combining all of my regular weekend posts.  This will enable me to add more content on Fridays and it is just starting to make more sense.  I'll still be linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga's Reviews and Sunday Post at Caffeinated Reviewer.  Both blogs are awesome so make sure you check them out.

Well, I survived another week.  Gpa had a rough one and I'm wearing out.  If you are that go-to person people in your family go-to for everything, I feel for you.  It's wearing me out and I'm exhausted.

Also, Thursday night I ended up at the ER vet for 4 hours.  And guess what, it wasn't Apollo. I don't know what happened or even WHEN it happened but I looked down around dinnertime and Cassius's back paw had a toe on it that was three times the normal size and was raw and red.  He wasn't acting any differently but definitely needed help. I think I was in more pain than he was because I was hurting for him.  Our ER vet is the SLOWEST but at least they are available.  He is on meds and doing much better now.

I have been managing some reading and we watched Near Dark, an 80's vampire movie we love but haven't seen in forever.  We also watched Vampires vs. The Bronx on Netflix Friday night and I really enjoyed it.  And The Walking Dead finale, which we didn't get last season, is on Sunday and we are planning on watching it outside in the backyard with a projector and a sheet.

Here's what I'm reading on this weekend:  

So I hope you all are doing well and staying safe.  Thanks for visiting Booker T's Farm!


  1. I am sorry for your stressful busy week. It just keeps coming these days. There are so many things I took for granted and now I have to worry all the time. I always voted but once I had I never worried; it's a daily worry of what horrible thing will he do next. Sorry for the political rant. So I carry on with things for the home and my daughter and my own projects. Stay safe and well!

  2. Oh, poor Cassius! I'm so glad he is getting better.

  3. Yikes, the doggies are giving you so much excitement always! I hope Cassius's is on the mend and you are able to get some rest soon.

  4. Oh no hang in there Barb! And sorry to hear about Cassius! I'm glad to hear he's doing better now...

    Five Total Strangers is gonna be my next read too I think.

  5. I'm sorry to hear about grandpa. Maybe you should look into an assisted living apartment for him. My mother is doing well in hers. (((((((HUGS)))))))

    Poor Cass. I hope his toe heals quickly. ๐Ÿพ

    What a great idea to watch TWD outside! Creepy. ๐Ÿ’€

    I hope you have a much better week than last week. ๐Ÿ’œ

  6. Wow, what a week. So sorry you're dealing with all this stuff. I hope you get some time to chill this week. Take care, Barb๐Ÿ˜

  7. Your furry guys are really putting you through it right now. I'm glad he's doing ok and give them a hug from me. I really feel for you with all that running around. It wears you down emotionally as well as physically. Make sure you look after yourself as well-easier said than done I know.

    I hate not feeling up to scary films and books when October comes round. It seems to happen to me every year now!

  8. i hope you enjoyed your outdoor movie. sounds like fun
