Another weekend … another update!
In my life (and, thus, blog):
This past week has been pretty nice! The sun FINALLY came out. It’s funny because a week ago from this past Monday we had a blizzard, like, a HUGE blizzard that made it impossible for me to go to work and now this past Monday it was 30 degrees outside. Talk about a 360 turnaround! Of course, it’s still Canada, so that means that the weather dropped down to 14 the next day and was cold. Typical.
On Tuesday I went to run some errands and my back tire was dragging out of the garage — not turning. So, hubs took it in and it’s been in the shop since Wednesday. This makes me sad because my only other mode of transportation is the husband’s truck and I’m really not a truck driver. They’re too big and awkward. BUT that just meant that I could hibernate watching Lost or reading on the deck with the dogs. Nothing wrong with that!
Later in the week I got called into work for this weekend which is good because I like work, but bad because the weather is sooooo beautiful outside! The grass is turning green and the trees are starting to bloom. And today it’s supposed to be about 28 degrees, which would be PERFECT for some deck reading, but I’ll chat with people about books at the library instead. At least we’re only open for a few hours.
As far as the blog goes, I spent some time moving around my blog schedule and moving posts around. Including the Sunday post, I’ll be posting 4x a week, which isn’t bad at all. I’m going to be scheduling way ahead, but that’s totally fine with me. 🙂
In books (& reading):
I actually had a pretty good reading week this week! I’m still in the chick-lit, romancy area of reading and LOVING it. I do have plans to get through my review books so I can mark them all as done, but I’m not quite there yet. I’ve also been reading a lot on my Kobo, which is great. I used it quite a bit, but once I got my iPad, it kind of fell on the back burner. I love using it now! It’s so small and light and perfect for reading when the sun is shining.
This week I finished reading When In Doubt, Add Butter by Beth Harbison (so good – I love any book that talks about food!). I also read Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas, the second one in the Friday Harbor series (I have the first one out from the library … and the third one on hold!). I love this series! It’s so fun to read! Oh, and I read Lauren Graham’s new book Someday, Someday, Maybe, which I really loved. I *may* be biased since I’m a huge fan of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, but I really hope she writes something else. Soon. AND I read my last Book Hoarder’s book, Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have), by Sarah Mlynowski. Kind of far-fetched, but still a fun read!
I’m currently reading Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery, the first book in her Fool’s Gold series — so far, very light, but it’s just what I’m looking for. AND I finagled a copy of Sophie Kinsella’s new book Wedding Night from the library (not yet on the shelves there yet!) and hope to start it today.
Bout of Books is this week! I may actually participate, but not how I used to … I kind of like Anne’s idea of doing a final update at the end so it’s less stressful. I may not even pick out what books I’m going to read, but just wing it. We’ll see … hopefully I can get a post up later today!
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
