Hello everyone. Poof! Just like that, September is just about over. Here comes October and for me, this is when I feel that Fall has really arrived. We have had some beautiful weather these past two weeks. It is still warm and it has been in the upper 80’s but in the mornings and in the evenings it cools down. And we’ve had nice breezy days, Fall is definitely in the air. I love the foliage colors this time of year as the leaves turn vibrant colors.

Good morning and happy Sunday. Where is August going so quickly? We had rain pretty much all week again here and the humidity feels gross. Last Saturday’s dinner plans were canceled because of the flash flooding. This weekend we went to a food festival and decided to go rain or shine and lucked out with rain showers for about 40 minutes or so while we were eating under the tented area so it worked out. This upcoming week it looks like it will be clearing up hopefully. Also, thank you for your input on my commenting question on my last updates post. It seems a few others have also had the issue with the comments going to spam or needing to be approved.

Onto my updates….

This week on the blog:
sister
I reviewed Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou which was a great psychological thriller. I recommend.

In My Mailbox:
tracybloom
I received an ARC of Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom via Bookouture. I read No-one Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day by this author this past January and I enjoyed it so I’m looking forward to reading this one.

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.

Good morning everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been trying to play catch up in blog land this weekend. I find that sitting at the computer all day at work, 40 hours a week, leaves me not wanting to get onto my computer at home. *note to self invest in a laptop*

On a bookish note, I have been reading and crocheting when I’m home, mostly crocheting. I am in the middle of two books at the moment, both non-fiction and both enjoyable.

Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman and Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach. I have to say Gulp is really very good, I hope to have the reviews up in a few weeks once I am finished reading. Who knew there was so much to discuss when it comes to digestion?

Happy Sunday everyone. It is hard to believe that December is around the corner. I hope all of you who celebrate had a Happy Thanksgiving this past week. I had a lovely one here with my family and I count my blessings every day for them.
This weekend was spent mainly relaxing and watching the Gilmore Girls revival while crocheting. It was nice seeing the cast back together again and these new episodes were fun to watch. Nostalgic.
