Happy Sunday everyone. I hope everyone had a nice week. I can’t believe it is Sunday already, why does the weekend fly by so fast?
We had another snowstorm this week, the worst one of the season. The good thing is we had a snow-day mid-week, the bad thing was all the shoveling and having to commute to work in bad conditions after it was all said and done. Work remains hectic as ever and will continue to be that way throughout March with working later hours every day now. Thank you all for your words of encouragement, I appreciate it 🙂

This was the view from my backyard the morning after the storm. It was so pretty to look at. We got around 22 inches by me. Thankfully we only lost power for about 20 minutes and had just a few fallen tree limbs in the backyard but no damage. A few of my co-workers are still without electricity.

Good morning all, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. It’s a rainy Sunday morning here. After another hectic week at work, I have spent most of my weekend relaxing at home. We’ve been working in the middle of construction at the office building since the end of last year and were temporary relocated to another area while they renovated our department for a few months, so working in between departments has been stressful to say the least. You don’t fully unpack your things and you’re often looking for stuff you need and trying to remember what box you put what in etc. We finally moved our things over to our newly renovated area on Friday so on Monday I’ll finally be back at my own cubicle. Sigh of relief. Everything is nice and new so that’s good too. I can stand up now and work that way if I want to, my desk rises with the touch of a button.

Onto books….

One Book in my Mailbox This Past Week:
fe
In the mail this week is a Goodreads win, The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer.
I look forward to reading it and it is nice because The Ten-Year Nap by this author was one of the first books I received in the mail for review many years ago when I began my first book blog. I still have alot of those old review books on my shelves.

“From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings, an electric, multilayered novel about ambition, power, friendship, and mentorship, and the romantic ideals we all follow deep into adulthood, not just about who we want to be with, but who we want to be.”

Merry Merry everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Otis says Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. That little holiday hat looks like I photo-shopped it on him, but he’s actually wearing it. He stays perfectly still when I put it on..lol. Like he knows mom is a little crazy but that’s life. 🙂

It has been a hectic week here, next year I will save some vacation time for this time of the year, it is so needed. We had snow this week and although it is pretty to look at, the timing was impeccable. It both snowed during my morning work commute and during my drive home this week bumping my 45 minute drive to about one hour.

Happy Sunday everyone, I cannot believe we are nearing the end of August. I feel like the older I get, the faster time flies. I’m excited for the Fall though, it’s one of my favorite seasons. That’s Otis above after a recent trip to the groomers.

I haven’t been on blogland too much, the summer weather beckons and so did Sons of Anarchy for the past few weeks. I finished watching the series this week and I have to admit, I shed a few tears. This show has been the perfect remedy for long days at the office because when I get home I need to just not think anymore. Crunching numbers all day is exhausting. I’ve also been watching American Ripper on the History Channel. It’s very good. They are setting out to try and prove that H.H. Holmes a.k.a. America’s first serial and Jack the Ripper were actually the same person. It is an interesting theory. Speaking of H.H. Holmes, Netflix has a documentary on him that was worth the watch.

Reading-wise I don’t have much to share, I will be reviewing  Knight on the Texas Plains by Linda Broday soon. It was a sweet one. I still need to finish up two books, and did pick up OINTB last night again so I’m determined that will be this week’s read. I’m more than halfway through.

Happy Sunday. Today is my son’s birthday so it is one of my favorite days of the year. 🙂 I tend to get misty eyed when my kid’s birthday’s roll around. It feels like time is passing by so quickly.

Well, after a week of unseasonably hot weather, it has finally cooled off a little bit. I love the summer though so I can’t complain. I took the pic above at the gardens near us, I enjoy strolling through there, it is very peaceful and picturesque. There are benches here and there but people mostly throw a blanket down and just lay out.

The weather has been nice for walking my dogs also. They get so excited when I get home from work, I can barely put my things away because they are whining to go out. It seems like they have me well-trained lol.
