It's Sunday so time to link up with Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer for The Sunday Post where we can talk about what we got and what's going on!
What I Got:
If Catfish Had Nine Lives by Paige Shelton - another cozy series. I've read the first one and have at least the next 2 in addition to this one. It involves a cooking school. She has a farmer's market series that I've enjoyed as well. (from paperbackswap)
Reading: Just finished Louisiana Fever by D.J. Donaldson which I really enjoyed (review Wed) and am reading Going Home by Stacy Finz and should be starting The Question of the Missing Head by E.J. Copperman next.
Listening: Finished Lissette's List by Susan Vreeland which ended up being wonderful. I'm now listening to The Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister which I'm loving though maybe not quite as much as the first in the series.
Watching: I've been slowly catching up on shows. I enjoyed NCIS: New Orleans. I was a little worried they'd go over the top with the accent but they did okay. I also enjoyed How to Get Away With Murder, Modern Family, The Middle and regular NCIS. The CSI premiere didn't do much for me but I did enjoy it so I'm hoping it will improve. I'm still 2 weeks behind on Doctor Who but I'm catching up slowly but surely! PBS had a special called The Mystery of Agatha Christie which was hosted by David Suchet and was absolutely wonderful.
Off the Blog:
Fall break starts tomorrow and we'll be spend some of that time in south Mississippi at my grandparents. They have some property so we'll be running around with their various dogs (they end up with all the dogs people dump including a St. Bernard/Mastiff mix who is possibly the biggest but sweetest dog I've ever seen) and tromping through the woods. Emma and Paul will most likely be dashing around on 4 wheelers and spending some time at the river that borders their property. Definitely looking forward to it! Unfortunately Eleanor won't be able to go but we'll have enough fun to make up her share. Next week I'll have pictures of Paul and his llama and from vacation - just a few. I'll try not to overload you.
Emma had car troubles this week that thankfully J was able to get fixed quickly. I think I was more upset than she was about her car potentially being out of commission for a few days. I do not want to get back into the taking them to school and her to work business!
I managed to throw my back out Monday much to J's amusement. He's 10 years older than I am and his back is in much better shape. To be fair this is only time it's happened but it's not much fun. Luckily it's mostly better now though the Tornado gave a great demonstration of how I was walking.
The tornado sirens went off at 3AM the other night and the only reason I heard them is because I was up letting the cat in. Otherwise I'm sure we would've slept straight through. Now my phone goes berserk if there's a flash flood warning 2 counties over but a tornado warning in the same part of the county that I'm actually in? Silence. Made a mental note to replace the batteries in the weather radio as tornado season is approaching. Luckily there was no damage anywhere.
