Happy Freaking Friday!! I have to say this is the best Friday ever! A lot to go through so let’s get to it.
One: I feel like my posts all week have been dog centered but its my blog and I do what I want. Just kidding. I found some lumps on Seamus and I was so nervous seeing as my kitty passed away a little over a year ago to feline breast cancer, that started with finding lumps. I wanted to get him looked at, better safe than sorry. So I stressed all week and cried a bit waiting for his appointment. I am so happy to report that it was just a fatty tumor (totally common and NOT cancerous) and he is ok!! He is a little chunky monkey though since the Winter hasn’t allowed for long walks since the snow drifts are higher than he is tall, so he will be getting more exercise.
Two: I have not finished this book yet but I am loving it so far. It is told in multiple voices including the voice of a German Shepard that is tied to Rick Stanton and then to Kellan Nicholson once he is sent off to War as a K-9 service dog and Kellan as his handler. It goes on to tell the story of how after war the two men, the dog and Rick’s wife cope to life after war. The war (WWII) is a back story and not too heavy detailed so don’t worry it’s relevant but not over done. It is more the story of people, how they interact, and how a dog can bring people together and make a difference. Unless the ending is horrible this may become a new favorite book.
Three: The Mugs are back, of course.
Nikki from the The Pink Growl is a huge Luke Bryan fan and she has introduced me to a few country songs I now love.
Helene from Helene in Between is the queen of EDM music and dances her booty off at Tomorrowland.
Erin from The Downdog Blog is going through a lot of changes lately including changing he blog name, moving across country, and starting a new job. What remains though is her love for Yoga, her dog Fred, and her manfriend.
Four: I have been feeling a little down lately but trying to stay positive that it all will be good in the end. Besides, if it is not then it is not the end! 😉
Five: Blogger Book Club – Call me cheesy for doing a link-up within a linkup but this week has been crazy so I get a pass.
I was really worried I was not going to be able to fit this book in based on having 5 books already checked out of the library but it was a very quick read. I read this genre quite regularly so nothing shocked me about this book. Simon was the womanizer next door to Caroline. The book begins with Simon knocking boots so loud it knock the picture off the walls of Caroline’s bedroom.
Simon then moved on to two different women over the next two nights. The end up forming a tenuous friendship to which as you can guess turns romantic. The second part of the story is Caroline and her missing “O” after a bad experience with an ex. The banter between the two is quick witted and fun. They become good friends, watching scary movies and hijinks with Caroline’s cat.
I will say this was a quick read, the story moved fairly quickly except towards the end. There were times it was very juvenile in the writing as if the author just wanted to say every dirty word possible. Some of the conversations they had within themselves were cliche and even pointed out how childish they were being. It wasn’t all bad and the relationship built and grew in a believable way. The more we learned about Simon the more you understood him better and liked him a lot. Overall I give it two stars, it is just ok. Not horrible but I have read better.
Well that is all I have for you today. Get out and enjoy the weekend. I know I will since I am getting together with my two best friends!
