Finally Finished...Whew!

I feel as though I have been reading this forever...I loved this book...seriously loved it but it was not my usual fast turnaround on to the next book reading experience...I lingered, I perused, I reread, I rested, but ultimately...I finished! I miss it already!


But...on to the next book...I have to finish this one by tomorrow...and I will!



On another note...


Our staycation is humming along and we quite like it! We watched all of Boardwalk Empire Season 2 in two days...the three of us have had deck time every day...in spite of the heat.

We have had fun lunches and in house dinners...one of us got her nails done while one of us caught up on bills and paperwork and the rest of us napped in the sun. Two of us got a bit of sun while one of us did yard work. Two of us napped and read while one of us mowed the lawn. Two of us have consumed two yummy root beer floats while one of us had a teeny taste of ice cream. One of us continues to round the rest of us up to bed by 9 each night with loud meows and a very piercing stare.
And one of us feels compelled to wake the rest of us up at 6 each morning...we have no clue why. She seems to want to wake us up so that we might realize that she is up so that we might watch her fall asleep again. Or else she wants the middle of our king sized bed all to herself.


Back to my book...

Are you staying cool?

  2. Oh cats, thinking they own us:)

    Come to think of it though, I might want the kind size bed all to myself too!

    I finally had to shut mine out of our room at night. Corny and December would fight/play/hiss and growl like a demon all night long. When Corny landed all 25lbs of himself on my tummy and used me a spring pad, I'd had enough,lol. I swear I have internal damage. Ouch.

    I'm enjoying your staycation too, it sounds so relaxing.

  3. Milou wants me to go to bed at 9 too. She is up at 6 and that means I get up. After she eats and um, takes care of business, it's back to sleep for her. I wonder if she's related to Lucy?
