Salad Days?

From Whole Foods...

From Serious Eats...

From gimme some oven...
From SkinnyTaste...

Summer salads are the I make one of these beauties for dinner tonight?


We got sidetracked and ordered pizza.

Den ate four slices to my one and now my stomach hurts again!

We are getting cozy in bed prepping to watch The Great British Bakeoff! It starts at 9:00!

And tonight everyone is making cake!

Loving my fantasy escape! About to start this!


Have a great week end!

Every time I get in this weird "I am not in the mood for this book" feeling...I resort to fantasy...I am not sure if that's going to work this time but I have lined up these three...all different age levels...all involving Magic and grimoires and fantasy!

"Grayling's mom has been turned into a tree...Grayling has to rescue her"
" a high stakes fantasy with allusions to Pride And Prejudice"
"Romance, weaponry, battles and plot twists"


So that's my stack and I am sticking to it!

One More Thing...

With only barely one more day to go until the installation of our new AC...our old one totally quit last all four of us one last steamy night without any cooling air. The kitties were camped out at the base of the fan and the entire night was hot and humid and miserable. I just want to get through today! We have headaches, we are hot and my house is an invasion of workers. I am stuck upstairs in our room with the kitties...


This not as yummy as I thought it would be. Unless my brain is addled by seems to be awkwardly written...Phoebe is a 14 year old with issues...she cuts...but the mix of the parents lives in this book is just odd. I am adding it to my list of failed choices. Sigh! there is no fun...there is just enduring...hours without electricity...Internet, TV...a pretty much miserable day but hopefully by mid afternoon...there will be cooled chilled air! We wanted out of this house before we had to do such luck!

I have no clue what to read next...if anything...I am so hot and miserable I can't even think!

My Lackluster Reading Cycle Continues!

Again...for some odd reason I am attracting a swarm of then and now books...and this one does it without even letting the reader know...I loved this cover but could not even finish this book. Sigh!


I almost think I need to take a week long break away from reading. I am not even sure that's possible but I am not enjoying books lately...or rather my choices. Double sigh! I am reading far so's about being the perfect mother. Hopefully no flashbacks...



A happy thing in my family is that I have two nieces who are sisters who have just had their first babies about a week apart from each other. The sad thing is that almost everyone in my family lives in a different state from each other!

The other sad thing is that the mom of my two nieces died a few months ago. Sad...very sad!

But...Olive and Angelo! Welcome to our world!

It's a nasty dreary day here today...Den is frustrated because he can't work outside and he can't work in the basement because we have to have it clear for tha AC change over...tomorrow...sigh! I think I am going to read and watch Big Brother After's stupid but distracting.

I Spoke Way Too Soon...

I feel really badly for the mouse...but even though he did chew the wires...our AC stopped working again later that keeps throwing the circuits because the compressor is dying so...a new AC will be installed this week...better cooler stronger! And we can stop running down to the basement every three hours! Yeah!

I kind of had my own little reading marathon this week...with these!

Really good...
Totally creepy! I will never eat any form of jerky ever again!


Reading this now...

I have got to stop allowing covers to overpower my book choices.

Plus Amazon Vine lures me in with all of their book choices just ripe for the choosing! I need to make myself stop for a and review my Vine deadline books and maybe choose less?

Sort of a summer break?

Have an awesome day!
