Week in READview:
My life now is figuring out what to cook and taking my daughter to cheer. The cooking has been a struggle since COVID started. I am still having such a hard time getting groceries or at least figuring out what to cook. I’m scared to make a full meal plan and then not have all the ingredients. I am limited to the amount of times I can go to the store with my daughters cheer practice. I just feel very confused when it comes to what to make for dinner. Also suddenly no one likes food anymore in this house because teenagers are weird and I don’t have time to cook a million meals. Kids are so annoying!
Two weeks ago Poppy Von Schweetz felt super hot to me. I kept thinking it was so weird. She was like hotter then I thought a cat should feel especially a kitten. She was also sleeping a lot which seems completely out of character. I know they mellow after spaying but not this much. She hadn’t been to our vet yet and since we just officially signed her adoption papers I figure it was the perfect time for her to meet them. Cat temps are usually 100.4 to 102 and she was sporting a 104 fever. She was given fluid and antibiotics. We think it was either an infection or inflammation but once the fluids went into her body and a couple days of meds she was back to her crazy self. So since then I have been feeling her up almost every day to make sure she doesn’t have a fever but so far she is doing 100 times better and completely insane.
The weather was OMG gorgeous until it wasn’t anymore. Now it’s just hot and gross again, however, I believe this week is the last week for icky weather and fall will finally be here by the end of the week. That means I can take out my AC from the windows and that always makes me happy. I really need to air out the house, I miss the fresh air coming in the windows
October is a big month around here and we are looking forward our now feature called Boo-Cause Reading’s Spooktacular. You can find the link below. I plan to do a lot of blogging over the next few weeks and hope to keep it going after. I also have been reading a lot more which has me all excited because it has been forever since I was able to finish a book and be halfway done with another. While I know my visiting has been limited I just don’t have a lot of time with my design jobs (squeals with excitement) and my daughter’s cheer practice.

Reading has been so good this week, I was able to finish Hot & Sticky and it turned out like all her other books, hot and steamy, over the top and just unbelievable and I totally loved it. I am still reading The Shadow of What was lost but it is a chunky fella so I switched to Camp Slaughter which I am sure is going to give me nightmares, forever. I will return to The Shadow of What was lost because I am really loving it and sort of switch between that and something else since I am starting to get into a very spooky mood.
What I grabbed:
Couldn’t help but grab these few books since they were on sale. Horrid was my book box book and I love the alternate cover that I received. If I remember I will share a picture of it next week. (*the cover below is the regular cover of the book)
Challenges & Readathons:
The Can You Read a Series in a Month Challenge ends this week, so look for the post so you can link up with how you did and also enter the rafflecopter if you were able to finish your series! Can you read a series will be back next year maybe in January. I am trying to find a way to do it 3 times a year.
