Quirky Wins!!!

So...I am not reading this...at this time...

Nor am I going to start this...at this time...

 

But I have jumped right into this one! It has not only one very quirky main character...Kate...but a ton of other quirky characters. Kate is sort of stuck taking care of her father and sister...she's stuck in a nursery school job where the kids love her ( she doesn't love them ) and the parents don't have much love for her either...and her father has a plan for her life that is not very appealing! Loving this book!

Perhaps this book will be next? But who knows...

Or...

 

Okie dokie...off to do stuff!

See you Monday!

Hugs,

Patty

Quite A Week!

And this literally has almost nothing to do with me! We are getting our basement waterproofed. Den carefully pointed out the parameters for the alarm system but the painter shorted out the entire system! His fault...his responsibility...but now we are upgrading our alarm system and there have been people here every single day this week! Then the new refrigerator that we got for the basement will not get icy cold in the freezer side...so they are coming on Friday...morning...and some leather techs are coming on Friday afternoon to show us how to care for all of the leather.

Whew! Oh...and Roxie has to go to the vet to get pretreated before she gets her rabies shot because she had a reaction last year to her rabies shot...more worries! She will spend a good part of her day there under the watchful eye of Bea...her vet...my sweet baby!

 

What I Am Reading...

I have been distracted this week! Men are over running every nook and cranny of our house...I am trying to keep Roxie and Lucy safe...but we are stuck upstairs...it's safer for them...one door open without knowing a kitty could slip out...I would be devastated...I can't wait to get my house back!

I am reading...

And sometimes switching over to this...

I hate switching but I am distracted...plus today was a long chemo day...and I just crawled into bed to rest...this kind of Beanie is my at home Beanie...it keeps my poor fuzzy head warm!

Hugs...

Counting Down The Days...

Getting an antibiotic through a pick line three times a day is not fun. I am trying to live in the moment and go with the antibiotic flow. But I hate it and if it has to last longer...I am not sure what I will do.

I am a truly pitiful person right now...I cry, I wail, I think too much...I need to take one day at a time and live in the moment. I will but I just need a few days!

Books...they still make me happy! It's good...this odd book...I like it!

This one should be good, too...

And this one...

So...I am off to watch Diners, Drive Ins and Dives...and read, too!

Hugs,

Patty

So...

I was so excited to start reading this book last night. It has everything I love in a book. However...once I read the first page I realized I read it already! Apparently my expert book tracking system didn't work. But...I must have read it a long time ago because the copies I have...2 of them...were sent not too long ago. So I must have read a document...sigh...I hate when this happens!

 

Anyway...I am going to try this one...I have had it for a while so we will see what happens with it...plus I know for sure I didn't read this one...yet!

Off to read and watch TV...with my little friend!

 

Hugs,

Patty

Books,Thoughts, Adventures?

Well...the books are ever present...it's always about deciding what to read next...thoughts...I probably have way too many of them and I need to start focusing on one day at a time. I have to admit here that I am a little down. I think it's because of the antibiotics...every single day at 6AM, NOON, and 10PM...for two weeks. The last one will hopefully be next Tuesday. I should not be complaining because it's Den who bears the brunt of giving them to me...through something called a pick line? It's just that I see more and more of my life being removed from me. I know this is short term but it is really difficult to deal with.

I had such a great talk with my primary doctor yesterday...he helped me see things in perspective and I am going to start some antidepressants to help me get through some of this. Everyone agrees my path hasn't been that easy. I cry far too much, I am sad, I thought I could be ok staying at home and dealing with this but it's not working the way I thought it would. My plan is a bust...I should have let family come but now it's too late. I thought I would be stronger...I thought I would keep my humor...I thought I would stay more like myself. But it's not happening. I am positive yet sad. My trusted fantasy books and the food channel are not helping me the way I thought they would.

I pray, I hope, I wish and yet I am still sad.

Book rundown...

Finished this but it was far from entertaining...

Starting this and so far it's enchanting...

I do have someone special to watch over me...

 

I am ok...I willl be ok...

Hugs,

Patty
