Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading? While this meme is not fully active at present I will be linking up as well to the Sunday Post at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I had a good week, but didn't achieve the reading I usually do. I read a book that took a lot of reading so it slowed me up a bit, which is okay. On Wednesday evening I hosted our knitting circle (just 4 of us) I am the only one still knitting my share of the nativity set, the others have finished theirs and moved on. I've been too distracted by other things! Anyway we enjoyed ourselves and it was near 11 p.m. when they looked at the time and left! I took the photo so I am out of shot near the fire that was keeping us warm!
I took my 91 year old Dad shopping for two budgies on Saturday, because his cat had passed on and he felt the need of another pet. I managed it all till we got home to his place, and then I was trying to do something in the cage, accidentally let one out and skewed the cage all funny. We limited the escaped budgie to the sun room and then called in the rescuers in the form of one of my brothers - he put all to rights and caught the escaped budgie. Pets and me don't really match!
I had a good week, completed my goal for the week and even took up the weekly step numbers up just a tad. Even with that I only walked 5 days and rested two.
A shout out to all Fitreader walkers for a month well exercised. We are going into July soon!
What I read last week:
A Year of Marvellous Ways was the book that took much reading.
The Perfect Bargain a very light romance.
What I am reading at present:
Still listening to Spring Fever, about 50% through it and enjoying it very much.
I have just begun The Flower Arrangement - set in Dublin and by an Irish author. Liking it so far. Another gorgeous cover too, although as the novel is just a tad dark it misleads just a little.
Making Magic by Donna June Cooper.
Posts from the last week:
For those of you who complete a month in review / wrap up, there will be a post up later in the week to link up to as you publish your post over the first week of July.
