So I sort of just fell off the planet for a bit. I had some issues with my computer, like it ran out of memory, I was tapped at what I could delete. It was one of the reasons I haven’t been really doing design work anymore. My computer just couldn’t handle it. So again, I had to break down and get a new computer (first was the couch, now this) I got myself the same computer MacPro Laptop but a 2019 and with more memory, not as much as I wanted but I had to compromise with myself because I had to get what I could kind of afford. So now I hopefully will be back to doing more stuff but so far I am loving this computer.
I haven’t been doing so great with this and that’s because I found a podcast that I can’t stop listening too. I have put that on hold for now so I can get to a few books I have wanted to read and also need to read for review and my TBR List. I currently have three books going and one I am listening to in audio while I build houses in the sims! 🙂
(Read, Currently Reading & Next)
I am currently reading all of these but more The Lady in the Coppergate Tower since I need to finish this for a review. I got the book from the publisher but I loved the last book in audio that I decided to wait and grab this one when it came out in audio to listen too. I am loving it so far. All three books I am reading are very interesting. Red Hood I just started and I am a little weirded but how it seems the story is about you.
What I grabbed:
Codsgrave is $2.99 for the month of August. I grabbed the first one last month, I have the physical for the first book but the text is so small my old lady eyes can’t read it, so I got it in ebook so I can make the text bigger. Please note: I have no other issues with any other books but this text is like tiny!

Real life & Blogging:
Ok I am going to try very hard not to bore you to death. So I will bullet point the last two weeks 🙂
- Last week in July was very busy at work since a co-worker was on vacation, didn’t do a lot but we did go to the shore on Friday.
- Gas leak at the shore house, apparently when the meter was fixed on the side of the house they didn’t do it correctly. Thank goodness we found it, it was leaking so much you could smell it all over the street.
- Last week we had a staycation and pretty much stayed home all week. I barely cooked and we just hung out together. Best week ever.
- We eat out a lot, The Shannon Rose (Irish Pub), Take out Diner and Italian Restaurant and the Cracker Barrel. I also cooked Pot Roast, Chicken Cutlets and Fried Eggplant.
- Got a new computer (see above)
- The Orange Cat eat the new cord on the new computer……so I had to get a new cord. It’s a good thing he is cute.
- The computer doesn’t have USB ports….WHAT!
- Found out what a USB-C port is and now have adapters because I am apparently way behind on tech.
- I GOT A TROLLEY!
- Trolley was much needed. I am so happy to have no more clutter on the table and I am so in love with it. Now just need to get The Orange one to stop eating it.
- Spent a lot of time sitting on my chair and ottoman. Best purchase I made this year along with the computer.
- The computers battery isn’t great which sort of sucks but I spend most of my time with the other laptop plugging in guess I’ll do the same with this one.
- This week really has been fantastic, I just loved being home and having the family all under one roof all day. Next weekend we head to the shore again and hoping to get a couple days at the town pool.
I mentioned a while ago I was taking the rest of the summer off. I plan to do a lot of reading or at least as much as I can and get back to writing review and doing some fun posts. I think I will be taking the summers off of blogging and life (lol) from now on. I look forward to coming back in September but I will be around today to give you all a visit. My main plain in September is to get back to blogging and visiting.
What I am watching:
I actually have been watching Chicago PD with my husband. It has been on TV and since we are home we have been watching the episodes when they come on. I would love for him to go back to the beginning and watch it on Hulu but he is sans-streaming for some reason. I think he would enjoy TV that way but he refuses to do that.
I have also been binge listening to a Podcast called Crime Junkies. I can’t even express how much I love this podcast. The stories they tell are so fantastic. I love true crime stories and I just adore they way these two ladies tell the story.
What I am playing:
The Sims! 🙂 I just got the Island Pack and made the cutest Kitchen! I can’t get enough of this game. She’s a mermaid so she lives on the beach.
Also got a new horse in Star Stable. Don’t have a picture of her but she is so cute!
Just for Fun:
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
