Weekend Update

Since my last update:
I finished The Dispatcher by Ryan David Jahn. I’ll have that review posted later this week but the preview is that I liked it despite some brutality and will likely be looking for more from this author.

I started The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan. It starts out with 39 people in a lifeboat after a passenger ship sinks in 1914. It’s definitely interesting. Unfortunately I spent way too much time doing “stuff that was not reading’ yesterday and didn’t finish it like I’d hoped. Perhaps that’s on the agenda for today.

As for audio, I finished listening to Rules of Civility by Amor Towles and liked it quite a bit. I decided to start Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt. I enjoyed listening to Grover Gardner’s narration of New Tricks and I want to catch up with this series. An added bonus is that they’re quick and fun.  Coincidentally The Hubster finished the audiobook he was listening to this week and started New Tricks so we’re both listening to Grover Gardner but different books in the same series.

I’m glad that I’ve turned The Hubster into a routine audiobook listener. It’s a nice way for us to keep up with some of the series we both read.

Other than books and reading:
Abby survived her first trip to our vet. She explored the rubbish bin and got seriously irritated that there was so much poking with various instruments in various parts of her body involved. She finally jumped off the table and went back in her carrier and sat down.

Abby and Howie are getting along fine. I mentioned last week that the nightly two cat race across the kitchen floor for treats is becoming competitive. Here’s some video proof:

But Howie doesn’t always win

We had more of that snow nonsense this week.

That was quite annoying.

But we had an absolutely beautiful afternoon yesterday.

It’s nice to see a sure sign of spring in the candytuft blooming by the front sidewalk.

Hope you’re having a great weekend.
