Ah Monday. Thankfully this week is looking to be just ok. Today was actually relaxing. I’ve finally been getting some reading in. Yes, this week may be ok. Not too stressful or busy. Hopefully.
“And some old witch in Bath had a book that you could never stop reading! You just had to wander around with your nose in it, trying to do everything one-handed. And —”
Well I think that having a relaxing weekend helps out too. What have I been up to? Reading books. I’m acting almost done reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and I think it may end up being the third book that I finished for June! Thank goodness for that because I only finished one book in May (The Martian by Andy Weir), which explains a bit on why I haven’t done any monthly recaps or such lately. Because there hasn’t been that many new things happening. Until now, I’m actually doing some reading and loving it! Continue reading “Monday Mayhem June 27th”
Hello everyone. Please forgive my absence here. I have had quite a busy month so far. I was hoping to get some more blog posts done last week but I think I only accomplished one or so posts. Before this crazy month I was posting almost every day, which is a lot, but I was having fun doing that. And I was having even more fun interacting with all you bloggers. Continue reading “Monday Mayhem June 20th”
It’s the middle of the week here and I have yet to finish a dang book for this month. Ugghhh! Seriously disappointed in myself right now. I have set my goal now to do some reading whenever I can now. So I apologize if these posts have gotten shorter and that I haven’t visited that many sites that I follow as often as I have before.

A Sneak Peek at the Month of May
It’s now the 5th month of this year. How do I feel about that? I do have this nagging feeling that this year has been going by too quickly. I do wish that I had Hermione’s time turner device so that I can turn time back so that I can do more things that I feel have been left undone.
My New Phone!
On Friday I bought a new phone, or I traded my old one in for another phone that us. I got an iPhone 6 (small). It’s pink and shiny, but has a turquoise protection cover so that pink really doesn’t matter. Continue reading “A Sneak Peek at the Month of May”
Man Crush Movie Week
ABC Family channel, or now known as Freeform, has a theme this week that ended up going along with a post that I was going to do. Their theme for the week is Man Crush Movie Week.
Tonight they’re airing a strange mix of movies. First up was The Hunger Games, an action adventure movie with two lovely men. With Liam Hemsworth it’s hard to be Team Peeta. And after watching that action movie comes a Rom-Com starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal. And then for their late night movie is a high school Rom-Com called John Tucker Must Die.
My Man Crush Movies
I have been looking through some clips on YouTube of some of those romantic scenes in movies. Watching just those clips have been a little addicting.
So to go along with Man Crush Movie Week, here’s James McAvoy in the movie Penelope with Christina Ricci.

“It’s just another manic Monday
I wish it were Sunday
‘Cause that’s my fun day
My I don’t have to run day
It’s just another manic Monday”
–Manic Monday by The Bangles
sigh The Bangles had it right about Monday. These are the days when I wish my bed was already made. For some people, like my sister, the weekend is a time to get the chores done along with some fun stuff. But not me. My chores is done throughout the weekdays. My cousin left this morning from her short visit with us. I think our dog Peanut misses her brown dog Newton. And with her gone it means that I’ve got to do some extra cleaning because Newton hair does shed a lot compared to Peanut’s Poodle hair. And the house must be cleaned for Gramps’s asthma.
But in the meantime, here is some things that I’m super excited about and can’t wait to tell you all about it on my Wazzup Wednesday posts.
A Barnes & Noble book store visit
Today I went over to my Gym to use their pool and jacuzzi. It helped my shoulder a bit but then I had to carry around my backpack with my change of clothes and stuff. It also wasn’t fun for my right foot because I was wearing some new-ish shoes, so now I have a blister. So I went off to the book store to do some browsing at the store.
Well what did I find there but non other than a Stan Lee book, with chapters and all.
And my copy is a Barnes & Noble special because it has a Q&A with Stan Lee. The book is The Zodiac Legacy: The Dragon’s Return. It turns out that this is the second book of the Zodiac Legacy so I also bout the first book, Convergence, on my kindle.
And now I’ve looked at their Website and found my Zodiac sign, though I already knew it, but just wanted to see what they’ll say. I’m a Dragon: noble, self-assured, magnanimous, and my “Friends” are Rats and Roosters. Continue reading “Monday Mayhem April 4th”
