Happy late Sunday afternoon friends! I'm rolling in at this hour because I have to wait for my weekly dog pictures which are the last ones I will get before we to pick him up next Saturday. I love the one of him reading. And when I say I love our breeder, I mean, she and the puppy nanny are amazing. They take the puppies on field trips, make sure they have exposure to other dogs, cats and people, and they read to them and play music. They potty train and crate train them, and get them used to the leash. This week I got to Face Time with Brody for the second time, so I could see him running around doing his thing.
It has been a full week. Mid-week my back felt better, and I was able to go back to the trainer but I did spend many hours on the heating pad! I should be close to 100% when I go tomorrow. I'm really happy with these people, they aren't messing around. I'm walking around like I've been riding a horse and can barely get in and out of a chair! Haha!
I had a book club meeting to discuss "Me Before You" (my choice because I want as many people to love this book as I did). Did you know it was going to be a movie late this summer? A friend's son had confirmation. Did some work in the yard - the weather has been gorgeous. We attended a wine and food tasting with silent auction on Saturday night, which was hosted by my friend that owns a wine store. That was fun. I had hoped today to relax, read a little, take a nap, but in fact it was opposite. I've been on the move all day, so after I finish this post, it is the shower and the comfy chair for me for a little bit. My husband and my dad are out right now riding in an old B-17 bomber, so in the back of my mind I will be saying a few safe flying prayers. Sheesh!
I continue to read a few pages here and there on "Where All the Light Tends To Go", which really has a wonderful voice of a 19 year old boy in Appalachia. Dark and murky but also with a tiny bit of hope. And I HOPE I can finish it this week. On audio I finished "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Krueger, a coming-of-age tale set in a small Minnesota town in 1961. Incredible literary voice and story. I had my quibbles, but still a fantastic listen. I'm now a couple of hours into "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrick Backman, and it is funny and sweet about a curmudgeonly old man.
Hope everybody has a great Sunday, what is left of it. After I shower, I will be roaming around on the blogs a bit. See you there!
