This Week – Nothing much going on here

Fave pic IMG_E4886 (2) We saw these babies twice on our walk last night and they let us get pretty close.  So, so cute.

Highlights of the week I sold a lot of books for the Friends of the Library.  I’ve been posting them on our FB page and making deliveries on Friday.  I had 7 stops yesterday and people bought anywhere from 3-20 books.  The deliveries are supposed to be contact-free but one mama sent her 5 year old running out with a check as I got ready to leave 😦 One person stiffed me $4 but another overpaid by $15.   Last weekend I had 6 people come over and shop the books in my garage.  I feel like I’m running a book business right now, but I’m not paying myself.

Books read Such a Fun Age We had our book club discussion on Thursday and none of us loved it.

Reading A Desperate Fortune Love this author and all of her books.

Listening The Princess Plan (A Royal Wedding, #1) A nice diversion for the car or cleaning.

Posted Absolutely nothing.

Read to Gage The Moon Lady Rikki-Tikki-Tavi Sayonara, Mrs. Kackleman It was fun to visit China, India, and Japan. After we read Rikki we watched some videos on real cobras and mongooses which was pretty cool.

Watching Bosch We made it through season 4 this week.

Plans for the weekend No big plans, but I think I’m going to try and convince my guys to make tomorrow Screen-free Sunday.  We’ve all become a little to connected to our chosen devices and a day off would be a good thing.   What are your plans?

    I’ve seen a few baby raccoons in our neighborhood, too. They’re cute, but they sure can cause problems with trash (or getting into homes)!

    Sounds like a fun time helping your Friends of the Library with their sales. We had a small child come up to us one day while we were waiting in line to use the ATM. He wanted to tell us that the machine ate his mom’s debit card, so it wasn’t working anymore. He came so close to our car and wasn’t wearing a mask, which was a little unsettling.

    Sorry to hear that your book group didn’t enjoy Such a Fun Age. I’ve had it on my list, but with so many recent mediocre reviews, I may skip it.

    Bosch is on our list, but we’re still binging on an old series called New Tricks. It’s light and entertaining, which is what we are craving right now.

    No plans for the rest of the weekend other than maybe some yardwork. It’s not raining, so I have no excuses. 🙂

    Take care and be safe!

      We have some adult raccoons that visit our yard each night, but so far nothing harmed.
      The child that brought me the check had no mask on and walked right up to me. I wasn’t too happy with the mother. There’s a reason I make them contact free drop offs! I’ll have to look up New Tricks. Where do I watch?

    It sounds like you are making a lot of money for your library. I hope you don’t get worn out. It’s easy to do with all the stress we have around us.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Such a Fun Age. Sounds like it wasn’t much fun. It’s unusual for our book group to all agree on our feelings about a book, and I imagine your book group is the same.

    We often traveled around the world in our school library. I would teach the kids a few words in the language of the country. We’d have music from the country going in the background. And I’d read aloud a story set in the country.

    I bought a bird feeder and my son put it up yesterday. The only thing I’ve seen near it is a chicken eating some seed that fell on the ground. We had a lot of different animals come into our yard when we lived out in the country but I didn’t know the town I moved to last year had free roaming chickens 🙂

    I hope you have a great week!

    Those little raccoons are adorable, but not so much when they mature! I saw a mother and dad deer with 3 fawns just standing in the street yesterday. I’m sure everyone is happy to be able to get books right now. Such a nice service you are doing to drop off the books.

    The baby raccoons look like cute twins. Those little bandits grow into big bandits who can do almost anything it seems. The book selling for the Library sounds like a good thing you’re doing. Our library seems pretty slow in the reopening. I’d welcome buying some, perhaps I’ll check into if our library is doing this. Enjoy your week.

    Those raccoons look so cute. Library book sales are always such fun. I don’t think mine has reopened yet. I think it’s just curbside delivery right now.

    I hope you have a great week!

    I love the raccoons! Glad you are able to get some books to people. I have an appointment to get my library books curb side tomorrow morning.

    I’ve heard such great things about Such a Fun Age. That’s too bad no one liked it as much. I’ve found Reese Witherspoon’s picks are a bit hit or miss at times.

    This week we’re picking up our first co-op basket from a local farm CSA. We’re getting cherries, carrots, and beets, and potatoes. So we are very excited. We got to tour the farm a few weeks ago and see how where everything is growing.

    How did the screen-free Sunday go? Archie and I felt a bit under the weather so we ended up binge-watching The Good Place on Netflix while Gabe programmed Roblox worlds!

    Any plans for the 4th? I hope you guys all have a safe and and fun week!

    One day last week I heard all this squeaky noises. At first I thought my cat had a new cry because her meow is kind of squeaky but not like this. I checked on her but it wasn’t her. As I was walking back into my home office I looked out the window and saw two racoon babies climbing down the tree. I went downstairs again to look out the window and saw another baby and mama. It was quite comical as Mama tried to get the babies out of the tree, across my deck and into the woods behind the house. That is when I notice the big branch that fell on my deck. I wonder it that is what scared them from their tree.
