Just Life:

It’s been a relatively quiet week around the house and the blog(s).  I don’t have enough cheese to serve with a good whine but — I’m going stir crazy with only going to the mailbox down the driveway and the backyard & patio.  February seems like decades ago when I last went out.  Yes, we do delivery for just about everything.  When someone you love to the moon and back is physically disabled and this damned virus would kill them without question – then you stay home, wear a mask around people who have to come into your home (nurses), and get essentials delivered whenever possible… but that doesn’t stop the stir crazies nor the cabin fevers, right?  But we’re surviving – and that’s the ultimate goal.  So.  Someday is a dream I’ll cling to for now. (whine done, hope there was enough cheese 🙂 )

Reviews at Keeper Bookshelf this week:

I had some catching up to do this past week (and I’m still behind).  Where I once read to escape and could easily fall into any world – well, that’s something else this virus has stolen from me.  But, another week and I should be up to date on ARCs and can get back into a reasonable rhythm again.

No, I didn’t read all of this last week – but I did get the reviews written up and posted here and everywhere else they needed to be.  As I mentioned, I’m behind and that means I’ve read a lot to escape but putting my thoughts together for a review took a bit longer.  *shrugs*  Hopefully, after this week’s posts I’ll be able to get to current and expected releases on the blog – and get my butt back on track.

Thank Goodness This Week Is A Wrap! #6

Another crazy week in paradise!  Kinda.  Sorta.

Life got crazy around here in February, and ever since – and I’m sure for most of the rest of the world as well.  As a lone wolf myself, (which comes naturally to me) I’m used to enjoying just my own or my family’s company.  Not going out when the mood to socialize hits me is… odd.  But by self-isolating, I feel we’re doing the right thing.  So far we are doing fine physically – just going a bit bonkers from only enjoying the walk down the driveway to the mailbox or endless (it seems) walks around the backyard with my pup, Harley.  I know others have not been as lucky and my heart breaks for them.  I’ve gone through odd days, some mourning doing nothing more than playing video games, others a massive cleaning spree, but always books are my escape.  So I’ve read a lot… a lot.  Not doing so well with keeping up with reviews but working on that.  There is no “normal” at the moment, only getting through the day and thankful for our health knowing that could change at any moment.  Maybe this is the new normal, for now, at least.

Anyway — this week on the blog (May 1-10):

Yeah, I know.  It’s a lot for one week – but, as I mentioned earlier, I’ve gotten way behind on getting reviews up even though I’ve been reading up a storm lately.  This coming week will be overloaded as well – but then I should be back on track with scheduled posts and quick “I just read this great book” posts.

I hope you and your loved ones are doing well.  I’m sending out a virtual ((Hug)) to everyone who needs one right about now.

It’s snowing outside right now.  Not a ton like my Northern friends are experiencing but enough to coat the roads – and it’s freezing out there.  Harley (my Sheltie) is doing her “No, it’s cold I don’t wanna go out.” thing again but treats work wonders for enticing her out into the cold and rewarding for a job well done.  🙂  Yeah, I’m sneaky like that.

An inside picture – but she’s still cute 🙂

 

Reviews this week include:

Some were ARCs, scheduled posts that went live this week (gosh, I love scheduled posts!) and I managed to read 3 titles that I bought in January which is one of my main goals this year – to actually read what I’ve bought in a more timely fashion.  So, not a bad week at all.

Decided to join some Challenges this year (again).  I’ve made the posts and a Reading Challenges 2020 page but I still have to go officially sign up for them all.  Scattered, at times my brain is so, so scattered.  There are more than usual, yet many can be crossed over from different Challenges so we’ll see.  It’s the fun of it that matters to me so maybe 2020 is the year I’ll remember to keep updated!  One can dream.

That’s about it.  No new purchases or ARCs this week – weird, I know, but there ya go.  I hope your week is full of good reading experiences.  🙂

Wow!  2020.  Let’s hope it’s a year of clearer vision for us all.  I know that it’s been a crazy, busy week it’s been around my house – I’d bet probably yours, too.

Well, we survived the Holiday Season once again.  The tree is down and carted away to become mulch for the boro, the last of the leftovers have been either devoured or *sniff* tossed, and now comes the fun of finding places for all those goodies that were under the tree waiting to be the center of attention once again as putting the gifts away becomes a priority.  We, as a family, had fun – but now it’s time to go back to the everyday world.
