Reading, Movies and Strip Clubs!

Sharing a few of the books I’m reading this week. The Fiction ones. It’s still raining here. Second day in a row and we can definitely use the rain and it makes for good reading and sipping hot tea weather.

For those of you paying attention to the loss of my beloved bed and the battle of the a/c vent I can tell you that last night I slept better than I have in years! No coughing, sneezing or nose blowing going on at all! And I woke up this morning feeling great. So I guess it was the a/c vent that was giving me problems.

I love mornings like these when it’s quiet and dark and rainy. The house smells like a pine Christmas tree and I am content. This afternoon we are going to the movies. It really is the best time to go. During the week no one is there. Unlike the strip club we drove by on Monday where the parking lot was full at noon. I wanted to stop and just take a look and see what type of folks are in the strip club at lunch time, you know? And it said Ladies Free on the sign. I didn’t even know they charged you to go in! But OU Boy wasn’t having any of that. Him: Are you out of your mind? Me: But maybe we’ll see someone we know and we can say Hey why are you in a strip club at noon? Do they have a buffet?

It’s not like New Orleans where they stand in the door and welcome you in and everyone is chatting and happy. Or maybe that was the Junior League. Anywhoooo I did not get to see inside the strip club. Which is hiring by the way.

I hope you are well today. I wish you lots of love and contentment and if you need some rain just ask, I’ll send the Rain Fairy your way!

I had decided to try at least 2 YA books One of them which I had seen reviewed a lot by YA reviewers I got about 15% into and just said NO! Jeez, I don’t want to have to wonder how to pronounce every name and city. I have Game of Thrones for that. This one I like because of the main character, but it is definitely not my genre! Or maybe it’s that I’m not a Science Fiction/Dystopian/Fantasy fan. But at least I gave it a shot!

In The End We All Become Stories..

1492460765558

Thank you for the pity party support yesterday. Turns out they gave me the wrong date and time, so I didn’t have to go to the meeting until next week.

Then my Bestest Friend, OU Boy, took me for some retail therapy. Turns out I just needed a new swimsuit, running shoes and a hat. Who Knew?

I have a ton of reading to do over the next few days, plus finishing up a Human Resource Manual so I got up super early, I’m talking like 6 a.m. and did 6 loads of laundry and folded it and put it away. I have dinner in the crock pot. I’ve made two pitchers of Tea. One good old sweet tea and iced Tazo Sweet Orange. And the biggest thing of all…I ran a mile. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but when you have wonky vision from the corneal transplant still  and wear a cup over one eye, it was a lot. I may have looked like a drunk, since I do still have the depth perception and balance issues, but it felt good. I’ll be back to 5 miles in no time I’m sure.

Back to The Wilding Sisters….ooooh good!  What’s your story today?

What Are You Reading This Month?

These are some of the reads from Netgalley I’m reading as well as about 15 hard copies and 2 Beta reads. So my June is pretty full! I really am in need of some recommendations for that 8 to 10 age group of girls. Nothing sexual, just some good series reads.

                        

      

  

So what are you all reading this month? Any good recommendations for me?

xx Happy Reading!   Patricia
