This Week -Fresh Faces

Fave Pic IMG_3951 (1) Razzi is usually up for picture posing, but I have to wait until Sammi falls asleep to get a good picture.  She is such a cuddle bug.

Highlights Another week has gone by?  Who can keep up, really?  We have been homebound completely this week, with the exception Jason making a trip to the Chick-Fil-A drive thru a few nights ago, wearing his mask of course.

My book club did a FaceTime meetup on Thursday night and it was both weird and fun.  So good to see everyone’s faces, especially since I’ve missed the past few months.

Gage also worked on a chalk obstacle course in our driveway (both Jason and I helped at different times) and we invited neighbors and grandparents to give it a try.  I should have checked the weather since it lasted 24 hours before the snow washed it away.  Maybe we’ll try a new one if it ever warms up.

Finished Reading The Art of the Handwritten Note: A Guid… A quote just to give you a taste of the seriousness of this book.  “After you have defined yourself through your pen and paper and the handwriting you  create with them, your wording adds the third dimension , one that may be the simplest to create.”  page 39

Currently Reading The Boy from the Woods

American Dirt review

Puzzles finished IMG_3978 This was a 500 piece puzzle that didn’t take long to finish once all three of us were working on it.

Movies watched Deliverance poster.jpg Yes, this was my first time watching this classic.

On the Small Screen We’ve caught a few episodes of the first season of Bosch on Amazon Prime.

Plans for the rest of the weekend  Is anyone making plans anymore?  I don’t know.  Hopefully finishing my Harlan Coben book!  What are you up to?

I’m linking up with theThe Sunday Salon

    I can’t believe you got snow – our air conditioner is on.

    I still print out a monthly calendar for our refrigerator but all it has on it these days are birthday , anniversaries, etc.

      I hope all is well with the store being open. I don’t remember the last time we had a few inches fall in April. We always get at least a day of snow, but this was a few days this week 😦

    Your first time with Deliverance eh? It’s a scary unsettling movie …. good grief it still gives me the spooks. Not a good time for it now, ha. I love your cat picture. I’m an animal freak. Stay well.

    I still need to see Deliverance. Maybe I’ll add that to my horror list this month! I have enjoyed the Coben mini series’ on Netflix. And I love that Coben is an American author and the Brits took his stories and ran with them! I have yet to read one of his books, though. It’s still pretty cold here but it’s been finally warming up the last couple of days. I’m hoping for some nice weather this week so we can keep the windows open and get some spring cleaning in this week! My plans consist of what to bake on the weekends and what movies to watch and how to keep G engaged with learning and connecting with friends and family.

    Love that puzzle. We need to order some more but they’re getting expensive. So I think we’ll have to break some out we haven’t done for a while!

    That photo of Razzi makes me melt. So sweet. (I had to stop replying to your post to take pictures of my own cat just because. Haha. I’m back now.) I love the chalk obstacle course idea. Such a fun idea! I hope you have a good week, Stacy. Stay well and safe.

    We did our first puzzle this week. We do have a couple more to do, but my husband says he found it distracting to have it on the table because he can’t walk past without doing some of it.

  6. Deb Nance at Readerbuzz says:

    A chalk obstacle course sounds like a lot of fun. I thought about taking my chalk to our city and writing encouraging thoughts on the walking paths, but I suspected I might need to get permission first.

    We are having our second FaceTime meeting on Tuesday for our book club. It’s wonderful to see faces after all these days of social distancing.

    My new normal is a virtual life calendar. I now have regular weekly appointments on Wednesday and Sunday afternoon on Zoom. So crazy!

    Have a good week, Stacy.

    • stacybuckeye says:

      I do have to keep track of Gage’s Google Classroom meetings and when our groceries orders will arrive (lol) but other than that these weekend posts are as close as I come to keeping track of what day it is.

  7. Diane says:

    I love your sweet cat. We had snow one day this week (gone now); it’s going to be 62 today. One day blends into the other it seems. That is a great looking puzzle Stacy. Enjoy the week (as much as one can).

    • stacybuckeye says:

      Thanks Diane. We’ve been outside doing scavenger hunts most of the morning, but it’s starting to cool and we’re expecting rain. I really wish spring would decide to show up for real!

  8. gulfsidemusing says:

    Yeah, what are plans and who makes them any more? A sad, but true state of affairs. Thanks for your review of American Dirt. I do want to read it eventually, but am afraid it’s just a little too intense for me to handle right now. Hope you all have a good week and stay healthy.

  9. yvonne473 says:

    What a cute kitty pic! I should try Bosch. It looks like a show I would like. I hope you are enjoying the Harlan Coben book. I usually enjoy his work. Hope you have a great week! Take care and stay safe!

    Cute picture! Some kids down the street from us did a chalk thing on their driveway. It was fun to see. We had some rain overnight and suspect it’s gone now – I haven’t gotten out for a walk yet. The closest to the street was ‘STAY SAFE’ all in pink. Ha! Hope you and your guys have a good week. Deliverance – saw that years ago – have no desire to see it again. LOL

    • stacybuckeye says:

      We’ve spent the morning doing scavenger hunts in the yard before it rains later. This weather is killer for being stuck at home. We’ll have to do something new for the driveway when everything is dry for a bit.

  11. Athira says:

    Plans, what plans? LOL! It’s getting boring writing up the Sunday posts now, since there’s nothing new each week.

    I’ve just started reading my first Harry Bosch book and so far, I like it. I may watch the show at some point.

    That obstacle course sounds super fun!

    • stacybuckeye says:

      I still haven’t read the Bosch books, but I keep meaning too. My husband and I both like the series. The obstacle course was fun and I look forward to another one when it gets a little warmer. Have a great week!

    Plans seem a bit superfluous these days 😉
    I’ve tried to watch Bosch but something about Titus Welliver just rubs me the wrong way.

    Wishing you a great reading week and good health

    Ps, I’m going to have the Deliverance tune stuck in my head for the rest of the day now!

  13. Bryan G. Robinson says:

    Oh, Deliverance, wow. No way could I watch that now. Such a happy movie. 😉 Love the cat photo. One of our cats is the same way with photos. You have to catch her. As for Bosch, we watched the first couple of seasons, which were good. I love the books, though, possibly my all-time favorite mystery series.
