It was a beautiful day Sunday. My sister treated my daughter, granddaughter, me, and my grandson to a 'Girls' day + one boy outing'. We had lunch at a place where they allowed me to be picky and ask for different bread (hate onion rolls) on my hamburger, bacon that normally didn't come on a certain burger and cooked it extra well done, the way I like it. I can be kind of picky with my food....
Then we went to an earring place so my sister could buy my granddaughter some earrings for her late birthday present (she went to disneyland for her birthday, so there was no party). My grandson and I spent this time outside, on a conveniently located bench.
Then we went to a park, or the 'village green', where it wasn't really very green, but the daffodils were blooming. The kids played on a jungle gym while we sat on a bench and petted passing dogs and watched various children running and behaving in various behaviours.
Met a bulldog who was quite the snorter, she christianed me with some drool that she shook all over her, after I treated her to a petting. Guess I should feel honored. lol. then she blatantly used me as shade.
After we spent some park time, we visited a sweet shop where the kids smiled some huge smiles for us.
|aren't those some creepy smiles?|
And then it was a walk back to the car with a little detour...
|one was a lion....the other a sleeping puma. guess which was which?|
Fun day. I could have spent the day in bed reading, like I usually do. Although I did kind of miss lazing around, I had a lot of fun, just spending it with some of the females of my family '+one boy'. And they were good kids at the restaurant; sharing my fries.....eating some of their food.....being good little mini-people.
Hosted by Mis Sheila of Book Journey, It's Monday What Are You Reading? is the weekly meme concerned with what we've been reading, finished reading, and/or plan to read. We all link to Book Journey and visit each other's blogs. Fun meme to participate in.
I didn't have huge reading week. Never really go into the two books I started reading and then I ended up starting yet a third book...and because of my fun day out on Sunday, I didn't even finish reading it - but I am enjoying it. It's a little different, an urban fantasy written by a man from a man's pov. A man totally tatted up from neck to feet with tattoos, magical tattoos. Wish the cover would reflect this...
The book is Dead Things by Stephen Blackmoore. First I ever heard of him, and his writing is decent - interesting with good dialog... Apparently this isn't his first book....he has quite a lot of work under his belt, including some short stories. So far, I'm enjoying Dead Things enough to think about investing in his other book - City of The Lost. Except that I haven't seen City of the Lost in the store...(online sale it is, then)
No other plans for reading at the moment. I did post a couple reviews, finally. Played Castleville, watched Shameless (good episode), and worked....I'm getting closer and closer to retirement! One day at a time. ;)
So, people....what's up with you?
