The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.
So my T-shirt design is going okay but we just started it on Wednesday and it’s due two Mondays from now so I only have two actual class days to finish it. I knew things were going to speed up now…darn it. I really need to get illustrator for my home so I can spend extra time on it. I figure if designing is what I am going to do I really should get all that good stuff now anyway. 🙂
Planted potatoes this week, so I hope they do well. It’s only my second time ever doing potatoes. Last year did okay but I didn’t do many this time I planted a lot more. My tomato plants are not doing very well and I am wondering if it’s the compost I put them in so in the middle of doing a replanting in hopes that they thrive or I will be going to the nursery and buying plants. 🙁
Update: After looking at my plants this morning I think I will be buying some. It’s too late to plant more seeds. Some of my younger ones might do okay but my bigger plants are pretty shriveled up. 🙁 Oh well, live and learn right, do not use the compost when seeding (I think it’s cause it says wetter inside but the top would look dry so I would water it more and I think they got some kind of fungal disease.)
This weather! It was so nice then we had some storms come in and then Saturday it was just so cold! I want my warm weather to stick around.

Books I have added
Those emails, Darn those emails!! 🙂
- No Charm Intended – Second book in the Cora Craft Mystery series.
- The Girl From Yesterday – It’s a psychological thriller and it sounded pretty cool. 🙂
- Lone Ranger/Green Hornet – I must admit that I was curious about how they connected the Lone Ranger to Green Hornet…lol.
Audiobooks for review (Tantor Audio, thanks!)
- Grace Takes Off – Listened to the first 3 and really liked it and sort of thought maybe no more was coming out on audio and then I saw it and I was like, YESS! 🙂
- A View to Die For– I think I have become a sucker for a mystery with a dog in it.
- Deadly Scandal – I have been wanting to try this series!
- A Wee Dose of Death – I really liked book one so I can’t wait!
Daily Deal had it on sale for .99 and I was curious. 🙂
- The Jungle Book: The Mowgli Stories – This might be interesting as it has multiple narrators which has me curious. 🙂
Books bought (kindle)
- This Savage Song– been wanting to read this and it went on sale for 1.99 so couldn’t pass that up.
- The Familiar – So a cover buy and only .99 at time of purchase. 🙂
Books read last week
- Mystery at Maplemead Castle -Not your typical cozy mystery and the mysteries they solve are to help the dead move on. It’s British and full of language not normally in cozies so you have been warned. Oh and lot of sexual tension runs amuck….lol.
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Short listen and the audio is so worth getting because of the fun effects of the monsters in the background and well Eddie Redmayne narrates. 🙂
- Snowmen in Paradise – This was a good second book in the TJ Jensen mystery series! Short and full of suspects!
- The Jekyll Revelation – Only at 17% and it’s kind of boring but I do hope it picks up as it’s for a buddy read this week.
- The Crow Trap – Haven’t been able to read much on this one this week.
- Sherlock Holmes – I have made it to 6:32 out of 62 hours. 🙂
- Grace Takes Off – Trying to keep up with my newer audios and this one comes out at the end of the month. I have about 5 hours left in it. I like this series.
What might be up next
What I’m Watching
I have been watching a lot of Vera off of Acorn TV and I am enjoying it. Lethal Weapon had it’s season finale last week and boy I kind of missed it come Wednesday. 🙁 I hate when season finale time comes. I need to catch up on things I have DVRed like Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and Rosewood, so might do that this week. Today is the new Murder She Baked mystery on Hallmark! I will be watching this series all day in anticipation of the next installment. 🙂
How was your week? What did you get?
