Weekly Update |10-30-22

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week was pretty slow but also felt like it went by fast. Yesterday we went to get pizza since it’s what we usually do as a family around Halloween. It’s a holiday we don’t celebrate and so we do something together so my daughter doesn’t feel like she is being left out of something. It’s now going on as a 6 year tradition, haha.

We went to the library and I picked up some books as well. They have been two I have been eyeing so we will see if I like them!

No reading has been had this weekend but with 40 books under my belt for the month (manga included) I don’t feel bad, lol.

I hope you all have been having a great weekend! Enjoy the photos of my pumpkin and an amradillo!

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has been pretty busy but we got to see family yesterday so that was nice! We also ate a lot because one side took us out for breakfast and the other for lunch, ha. I won’t complain though because free food!

I haven’t read anything over the weekend but that usually happens and it’s nice to get to spend time with people. Plus, I had to go admire the chickens as it was so nice outside! I even have them carving my pumpkin for me.

Other than that, everything is about the same.

I hope you all have been enjoying your weekend!

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

I haven’t done one of these in awhile, haha.

This week was the usual, school and chickens. We got a bigger coop for them and since they are still adjusting it takes more to get them to roost at night. It’s a process but its all good. I love some chicken therapy!

I’ve actually read a lot and I finished the tbr I wrote up at the end of September! I am ahead of myself since I wanted it all read by November 1st. It feels good to finally feel like I am getting caught up after the move in May.

Other than that, nothing much is going on here.

I hope you all have had a great weekend! ❤

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week was filled with school and chickens!

School has been going great for my first grader. I think we are finding our groove for the homeschooling program and she seems to be enjoying it. She still isn’t a fan of language arts but I told her she can’t be a good reader like me without it. 😂

The chicken coop got cleaned out yesterday and their run is now mowed. It’s a lot of work! But, they bring joy and I could sit out there for an hour and just watch them. It’s the simple things isn’t it?

Other than that, reading has been going well. I’m not quite where I wanted to be with my September arcs though. I still have six left but at least they are for the last half of the month.

I hope you all have been having a great weekend!

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has been very busy between car problems/getting them fixed and taking my daughter to the doctor for a tick bite. It’s been a wild ride.

Today and tomorrow we will be spending time with family which means it will be a slower couple days and that is fine with me!

I hope you all will be having a lovely weekend as well! ❤

Weekly Update | 8-7-22

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has been pretty slow which is a good change of pace. This coming week? Not so much, ha. I need to get my car fixed and homeschooling starts. It’s that time of year again and I am not ready! I have at least looked through her new online school and I think I will like it more so that is good.

Other than that, I have been reading a lot. I have 11 arcs left for September and I want to get through them all before September starts. I think I can do it but I just need to push!

Audiobooks have been going well so far this month as well. I am kind of wanting to relisten to Twilight at the moment. It’s an itch that just keeps coming back.

I hope you all have been doing well this weekend. ❤❤

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

My life has been very busy since moving and so I am moving my weekly update to Saturday because it just will never get done on Sundays anymore at this point, lol.

I have been gardening a lot and raising baby chicks! It’s all been a new experience and I am enjoying it. I’m sure once school starts in a couple weeks I will be even busier and most of my free time will be for reading.

I hope you all have been doing well! ❤

My two new kitties: Peppa (black and white) and Shadow (black)

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has been very busy!

I took the kittens to the vet on Monday, my daughter’s birthday was on Thursday but celebrated yesterday, and just doing a lot of gardening inbetween.

Today and tomorrow will just be days for relaxing. I need to finish bringing some things up from the garage that haven’t been moved up since we moved. I do want to get some reading done since I have time. Other than that, it’s just the usual around here lol.

Hello Lovely Bookworms!

This week has been very busy!

My daughter is practically finished with school as she has finished all of her main classes and just has a side class to do for a couple more days. My husband had his graduation ceremony yesterday. It was nice to be able to celebrate him with family after. Now I feel even more emotional with all of the changes that are continually happening and it’s definitely taken a toll on my emotions, lol.

I have tried to read as much as I can this week through it all, mostly audiobooks. I would say my reading has definitely improved the last couple of weeks.

I hope you all have been having a great weekend. ❤
