Monday's Beginnings (8)

This is the beginning of a new week!

So, I am wondering:

Where you are in your books or are you starting a new book for the new week? The beginning of the week always seems to be a great time to start anew. To me it seems to be the way Monday goes is a sign of how the week will follow. Have you been able to get much reading time in today? Or are you going to be rushed all week to get everything into the short 24 hour day?

I am still adding numerous books to my reading list. This week it has grown by thirteen books. Yes, THIRTEEN!! Wow!! You all have been on a roll this week with reviews and they are just soooo wonderful I have added almost all of them to my list. When is Christmas!?! I have a very nice list for gifts if anyone needs ideas.... Of these thirteen books I have 2 series that are 3 books, 2 series that are 2 books so far, and there is one book for my son and I to read together. This really is a wonderous thing! You are all helping to keep me out of trouble and these wonderful authors in work. I am kind of trying to make notes of books to read but the must, must reads are on the top of the list (that is what list these books are on).

I do have to say I finished TWO books this week! **Applause** Thank you, *bowing* thank you very much *bowing*. Okay, this is a great feat for me. I am luck if I finish one book a week so to do two is wonderful.

Well, for me today: The books I have completed this week are Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins and A Door in the Woods by James Dashner (I will review here later tonight.)

I am very anxiously waiting for Canticle By Ken Scholes to come out tomorrow. My first stop on my way home from work is in the opposite direction to my local bookstore to purchase this book. Today was an okay day. Nothing major happened. I was extremely bored at work so I was able to catch up on a few blogs this morning then that was about it. I finished this second book (which I think I cheated a little being it is for younger kids but hey I'll take two books a week if I can get it. lol.)

Nothing very big even happened over the weekend. Other than spending all night into the wee hours of the morning Saturday at the hospital with my dad to find out he just has a stomach virus. See, he had a sever stroke about 9 years back, is not able to talk and lost use of his whole right side, so when he gets sick and run-down he gets very scared something else is wrong. We do as he wishes and take him to the hospital to get checked out. So, all is well other than just a virus and I got a lot of reading done waiting in the room with him.

Yesterday I took my son up to the mountains to run around through the woods for just a few hours. He absolutely loved it. We walked up the side of the hills and climbed a few huge rocks and took some pictures. There is a natural spring there with a nice stream running, and of course being the child he is when down to the stream to look and walk around - yep, you guessed it... He fell in. Thank goodness it was just his one foot and a hand barely up to the elbow (it is getting chilly here already and you definitely need a warm jacket). It was a funny sight though.

So I've been busy but not. Tonight I plan on reviewing the first book of Lamentation in preparation for Canticle.

Now... this leaves us with one question left... Where are you?

  1. I miss having that kind of enviornment to share with my son. Luckily he goes up to Minnesota every year so he is able to play in the woods and cavort with the deer.

  2. They really do love it. We were wondering around "lost" and he was on an adventure. He loved climbing over the rocks and through all the trees. It was great watching him and letting lead the way. He even told me that night when he was heading to bed that he really had fun. That made the day even better.

    I bet your son has those deer eating out of his hands. :)
