What's Happening (11-29-20)


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.

It's been a few weeks and as much as I try to do this weekly, I'm failing at life.  Just kidding.  Things have just been really busy.  First and foremost, Cassius celebrated his 7th Birthday on November 22nd.  He had a blast and I can't believe my baby is 7!

Next up Mr. Barb and I celebrated our anniversary the very next day.  He got some some gorgeous roses and some jewelry as well as paid for my haircut (complete with safety mask and all ).  He also made a wonderful dinner and bought a new microwave for our kitchen.  Then of course we had Thanksgiving.  It was just us and the dogs as Stupid Uncle stepped up and did something with Gpa and Mom's boyfriend moved in with her a few months back so they had a low-key one at home because of COVID and all that jazz.  I think everyone had a great time no matter where they were and we hope you did too!

In COVID news, Mr. Barb's stupid employer made a bad decision and exposed his staff to some inmates with COVID.  Mr. Barb is always safe but he was tested and as a precaution, I was too.  Everything came back okay though thank Heavens.

The library is ALMOST done.  I will do pictures next week as long as my main focal picture arrives.  Any guesses?  I love it and it's such a nice place to kick back and relax now and the boys love it - they even have a new dog bed in there as well.

We've actually watched some decent things.  "Run" with Sarah Paulson on HULU was really good and she plays bad guys so well.  We also enjoyed "Let Him Go" with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane.  Costner plays cowboys really well.  And finally we watched "Don't Listen," a new foreign horror film on Netflix. I highly recommend it.

I've been blessed with some really interesting ARCs.  Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers!

Next week I'll share some library books with you.  Hope you all are staying safe and are having a joyous holiday season.


  1. Happy Birthday Cassius! We share a birthday but I was a little older than him :) Happy Anniversary Barb! I am glad you were able to celebrate and it sounds like you had a good Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see your library! I hope you enjoy all of your new books. I finished An Unexpected Peril the other day and loved it.

  2. I'm as excited about your library as you are I think! I can't wait to see it! I'm pleased to say my new look room is taking shape and there will be photos once everything is done, in a couple of weeks time. Happy anniversary!

    And a special Happy Birthday to my lovely Cass! I hope you had a great day and got spoiled rotten! Erk, sounds like your dad's boss was causing stress for your mum this week!

  3. Ooh, I can't wait to see your library pictures.
    That picture of the pooch is gorgeous - what a lovely face. I would be cuddling him all day long.
