Our refrigerator decided to have a meltdown, first the freezer with soft ice cream and a few days later the other side with curdled-milk. We did order new appliances, but they won't arrive until next Saturday:( Good excuse to eat out for the next 6 days though. We were able to salvage most of the frozen foods, using my SIL's freezer who lives pretty much next door.
Last Sunday we went to a local zoo. It wasn't super huge, but it was nice, clean, reasonable and fun. I loved these cute birds:
Our granddaughter was over stimulated after about an hour and had a little meltdown, wanting to try our her 3-week old walking skills with a lot of people does not go well, and since "no mama" is now in her vocabulary, it made the day interesting:)
About Books : I'm still listening to The Cuckoo's Calling; Galbraith (JK Rowling) and am enjoying it. I've been listening at work so it is going slower than normal as I was a bit busy last week. I finished reading/listening too The Last Camellia; Sarah Jio and enjoyed it (I hope to read more by this author) perfect summer read. I finished The Quarry; Iain Banks (no review yet and I thought it was just okay). I finally reviewed: Inferno; Dan Brown (read in July) pretty good and Too Bright to Hear Too Loud too See; Juliann Garey (also from July). I also read/ reviewed a gardening book: Heavenly Hydrangeas and an adorable kids book: A Year With Marmalade.
Plans for the Week
- Review: The Quarry; Iain Banks
- Read: finish - The Cuckoo's Calling; Help for the Haunted; John Searles (I'm loving this one) and Joyland; Stephen King (audio)
- Start Reading : possibly: Night Film; M. Pessl, A Hundred Summers; B. WIlliams, or Eleanor and Park; R, Rowell and maybe a kids book.
What are your plans for today and the coming week?
(Today we are taking a ride to a quaint little town about an hour from here for browsing and a nice late lunch.) Happy Sunday everyone.
