Greetings Humans! How was your week? We very almost didn’t do a Sunday Post, because we don’t really have that much to say. But then my Mommy sorted out her Book Club books this morning and we realized we actually have quite the shelf to stack! The rest of our week was uneventful. School is pretty much the way you expect it to be – naughty children, stubborn colleagues, rain cancelling the sport schedule, sick kids. Same old story.
Let’s rather talk books.
Adding to the Litter
Before I show you all our lovely new addition for Book Club, let me just quickly give you a recap on how our Book Club works: Every month, all the members pay an amount that goes to the host for that month. The host then buys books of her choice for the amount received. You are allowed to buy whatever you want, the books will be yours in the end after all. Most of the ladies get to buy around 3 – 5 books per month (books are really expensive in SA). But if you know my Mommy, you will know that buying books is hobby all in itself for her. She will be the host beginning of June and she has the impressive number of 15 books that she will be adding to this year’s haul. I have noticed that we get a few less kibbles in our bowls since Friday, but I think it’s safer to just don’t say anything and go catch a mouse.
We’ve separated the English and the Afrikaans books for you, so that you don’t get too confused trying to read the titles. The best part of all, there are still a few other new books still left on the shelf, but this might be enough. They have to carry the crates at the end of each meeting. Let’s show some mercy. Now don’t you wish you could join or Book Club?
Scratching the Blog Pole
Not much, I’ve scratched the couch in the sitting room more than what my Mommy scratched the Blog Pole.
On the Couch
I’ve been trying to tell you guys for months now that my Mommy is slightly crazy. Last weekend, she started with A Dark and Secret Place. At 27%, she put it down and send a very polite email to Netgalley saying that the content is too disturbing and violent for her delicate demeanor (or something to that effect). But then she devours the new Stephen King book, Later, in one sitting. Nope, I can’t explain it either.
Did any of you watch this series when it was first released in 2015? How did we miss this?
It’s good! And I can’t help but think – what if?
That’s it from us this week. The highlight of our week was all our new books for sure. And new ballet shoes. What happened in your life this past week?
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!
Lots of Love,
