Life with Leukemia, a Puppy, and Some Reading

It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.

What I Got:

Nothing!  I did just buy a book but it isn't here yet so it doesn't count.  Rover did get a pup cup though and he said it was delicious.


Reading:  Snowed in for Christmas by Sarah Morgan and The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

Listening:  Vanishing Edge by Claire Kells

It's been a fairly quiet week.  Will's numbers came back lower at clinic and he's been feeling a bit rundown so we've mostly stayed home and relaxed.  Or Will and I relaxed Jason (husband) isn't good at relaxing so he's been painting the shed and tackling new projects.  

Rover is feeling like a teenager and has been acting a bit crazy though we worked a lot on heeling and are finally at a place where he will sit consistently in a heel.  We start scent work class this week and I'm excited to see how it goes.  We were on a walk in the neighborhood and for the first time one of the horses was close enough to the fence that he could see it and he was absolutely fascinated.  He could have sat there for an hour just watching it.  

I had some kind of allergy situation or cold or something and ended up going to bed early a few days this week which cut into my blog visiting and reading.  I did take a Covid test but luckily that came back negative and I'm feeling a bit better and I'm hoping it will continue to go away.  I have too much stuff I want to do to get sick!

Have a great week and happy reading!


  1. I love that cover! And I bet the horses are fascinating! How fun. :)

    Hope you're feeling better, staying Covid free, and having a good weekend. :)

  2. I hope Will's numbers improve and that you feel better soon. Sophia has strep throat. Tis the season.

  3. I hope you are enjoying your current reads. I have enjoyed Sarah Morgan before--although haven't read Snowed In for Christmas yet. I love The Invisible Library series and hope you enjoy the first book!

    I am sorry to hear you have been under the weather and hope you are feeling better soon. I also hope Will's numbers start to improve. Poor little guy.

    Take care and have a good week!

  4. The Invisible Library is on my TBR - I'll be curious to read what you think about it. Sorry you're not feeling great, but glad it's not covid. Take care of yourself - and curl up with a good book!

    Week in Review

  9. It is peak week for allergens this week. Yuck! I hope Will feels a bit more himself soon.

    Rover is so darn cute!!

  10. I hope both you and Will start feeling better. Rover is so cute. I've been wanting to read Sarah Morgan's book but haven't had a chance. This looks like a good one.

    Have a great week!

  11. I really enjoyed Snowed in for Christmas, and I hope you do too. I hope Will's numbers come back up soon. Rover is adorable :)

  12. I loved The Invisible Library series. It is UF so some of the mysteries take the whole series to unravel. Rover! Lulu likes ice cream but we don't give her hardly any. I hope Will is having better numbers soon.

  14. You dog is so cute.
    Have a great week.

  15. Thanks for sharing your Rover photos. He was really being calm about the horse! 🙂

    I hope resting up helps Will, and I hope you feel better, too. 😕

    I hope you had a great start to your week. ☀

  16. Glad you and Will were able to get some rest this week. It's too bad your husband isn't able to chill more. Ha ha. Some people are just like that, aren't they?

    The picture of Rover and the horse is adorable. You can tell he's enthralled!

  17. That picture of your dog staring at the horse is too funny!
    I hope Will's numbers go up.

  18. I am sorry to hear that Will's numbers are low this week. I hope that he is feeling better very soon. There is a horse near my house and my dogs were scared when it came up to us. It was very close though. I hope that you have a great week!
