The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Hi all and happy October. How did October get here so fast? I love this time of year. The weather is nice, the foliage is looking pretty and aside from all the madness in the world right now I enjoy the Autumn coziness. I hope you are all doing well. I’ve not been on blogland too much these few weeks. The steroid med side effects have been kicking my butt lately but I am finally off the month long course as of a few days ago so fingers crossed I don’t need more. As a result, I have not been able to sit at the computer for extended periods because my legs and feet have been swelling up so I’ve been crocheting alot more lately with my feet elevated to pass the time. I also really can’t be near anyone because steroids impair your immune system, so yea fun times. I watched the entire season of Ratched, I recommend it. However, if you want some crazy ass plot twists just look at the news lately. The truth really is stranger than fiction right? Bookwise, I also finished reading The Mist so I’ll share my thoughts soon on that.
onto my updates….
recently on the blog:
I shared my thoughts on The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen.
in my mailbox:
The Art of Inheriting Secrets through Amazon Prime.
Also in my mailbox, I purchased these fun book magnets over at Cult City. Total impulse buy but I like them and happily added them to my magnet collection.
I finished up a set with the special Mother’s Day yarn from my daughter.
I made myself a cowl and matching fingerless gloves. I made my set using Tunisian crochet which I love. It’s almost like combining knit and crochet, a special hook is used for this. The stitch I used is called honyecomb.
And I had leftover yarn so I whipped up a matching sweater for Otis.
Here he is modeling his new sweater. Another thing that happened this past week is Otis had to have 6 teeth pulled. He’s recovered nicely now. He is turning 7 this December and Chihuahuas are notorious for having bad teeth. I scheduled him for a teeth cleaning and once he was under anesthesia the vet called me to let me know how many of his teeth needed removing. He had to have a round of antibiotics and a few days on pain killers. He was definitely mad at me when I picked up that evening after his dental procedure so for his sake I’m relieved it’s over and done with. If you look closely at his left leg in this pic you can see where they shaved the fur down for the IV. Teeny tiny Otis.
That covers my updates this week. I’ll be blog hopping a little bit today to see what you all are up to. Enjoy your week ahead and thanks for stopping in.
