Things we’ve been doing.

We went to the zoo on Sunday. We watched the seal and sea lion show and they jumped up to touch targets. It was cool to see how high they could go. We were with some family members and the niece liked holding my hand the whole time. She told her mommy and nana that … Continue reading Things we’ve been doing.


10 things that get in the way of reading.

So yesterday’s top ten Tuesday’s prompt was: Things that get in the way of reading. I never remember Top Ten Tuesday because it’s not something I follow religiously until I see another blog posting about it and if it’s an interesting prompt. Since I’ve been busy the last few weeks, obviously it wasn’t on my … Continue reading 10 things that get in the way of reading.

Weekend Pursuits 4/14/23 to 4/16/23

This weekend (so far) has been pretty busy for me. I had to take my dog for his yearly shots Friday afternoon so I took him for a walk an hour or two beforehand so he could be in a happy mood before we went inside.

Other than that, I didn't know a whole lot about it. So when I started reading it, I was in for a … Continue reading The Secrets We Kept and Doctor Zhivago.

My Week In Review 3/4/23

I’ve made a little progress in reading and movies this week. Movies I watched Primal Fear starring Richard Gere and a young Edward Norton. I watched it in high school and was enthralled with it both then and now. Gere is a cocky defense lawyer trying to prove that his client (Edward Norton) is innocent … Continue reading My Week In Review 3/4/23

My February 2023 in Books

I read five books in February. This is amazing considering I had a cold at the beginning of the month and didn’t feel like reading. Granted one was an unusual cookbook with blurbs in it and another one was super short but that’s okay. Plus one or two I was reading for forever and happened … Continue reading My February 2023 in Books
