The Week In Review #300

May 17, 2020 Misc. 18

The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Β 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.

I think the combination of the weather and the world has gotten me in a depression and it has affected my reading. πŸ™ That and being addicted to a game on my phone but I just don’t feel it unless it’s an audiobook.Β  The weather this week for May has been so weird, but I know it is everywhere. I just tired of cold and rain and I want my regular May weather back and wouldn’t mind at least three weeks with no rain. I think I am about to reach my breaking point with c19 so they best figure things out fast!

I did watch Scoob this week as I needed something fun and uplifting and well Scooby is always that! I am pleased that they didn’t try and alter the characters and make them into something they have never been. I can handle the updated cartoon looks as long as the essence of the characters where there and they were. It made me laugh an I needed that.

I ate in my first restaurant setting last Sunday and it was so GREAT! My favorite Chinese place was open for buffet and well that is the highlight of the week and that was at the very beginning…lol. Other than that I don’t have much else to say.

Oh, and I think maybe I have my blog fixed but if something goes wonky when you comment, etc let me know. πŸ™‚

Have a great week and happy reading!

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

Edelweiss

  • The Endangereds – I just can’t help but have to grab it when there is a book about talking animals…lol. πŸ™‚ Also it said it was like the A-team meets Endlings (now I don’t know Endlings but I love the A-team…lol.) It’s about how the humans have made a mess of things so now it’s up to the animals to fix it. πŸ™‚

Books read last week

It was an audiobook kind of week. πŸ™‚

  • Stayin’ Alive – This is the latest in the Country Club Mysteries and I really enjoyed it. It’s such fun reading about the 1970’s.
  • The Loch Ness Papers – This is the fourth book in the Scottish Bookstore Mysteries and I really enjoyed it. I loved the Loch Ness lore!
  • Deathless Divide – Eh it was okay but not that great. Just not enough action for me. If I am going to read a zombie book, I want zombies and lots of bloody action! If there is another one I probably won’t try it. I wasn’t a huge fan of Dread Nation but was hoping this one would have more action but nothing.

Currently reading

  • The Mouse Watch – I am only about 23% but so far it’s cute.
  • Titan’s Day – I will get back to this one when I am in the mood but I am finding it hard to read ebooks right now. I am just in the mood for audiobooks.
  • The Stolen Letter – This will catch me up with this series and finish up the read a series in a month challenge as you had to at least read three books in a series. πŸ™‚

What might be up next

How was your week? What did you get?

    I want to go out to eat now too. Not many restaurants are open for inside dining though and those that are, are packed. We are having a drought here and badly need rain. Got one quick downpour and all it did was stir up the dust.

      It’s been interesting going out and eating. They try to do every other table to keep space but what do you do when it gets really busy. The owner was stressing out and I felt bad for her but her employees were glad to be back making some money.

      You may have our rain!!! We get like three maybe four days off and then another week of rain, I am beginning to hate it and would trade you our rain for your drought!

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Yeah…seems like we’re in April weather what with all this rain lately. Where’s my May Flowers?! Lol. Our rain kept getting pushed back yesterday though I woke up today to hear it pouring. So we’ll see what happens the rest of the week I guess.

    And oh wow SCOOB! I wanted to rent that one myself as I LOOOOOOVE Scooby Doo! But the price to rent it on demand was just $5 less than the price to own it. I couldn’t justify that. So I think I’ll wait a bit and hope that the rental price goes down to rentable levels. I mean, if you had a family of 4 to watch it for $20 I’d understand, but when it’s just me, myself, and I…$20 is too much for a rental! But I’m happy to hear that the movie did well with portraying the characters! Scooby was one of my favorite cartoons growing up, but all the newer versions they continued to make left me disappointed.

    Nice new read! This is a new to me one but I did see it on Edelweiss this week. I hope you enjoy it!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

      I guess though they are not making money off of Scoob going to theaters so trying to make a bit online. I understand your dilemma though. πŸ™‚

    I know, I just want to go back to before COVID. I too am ready for it to be figured out. Sucks that all the experts suggest we are no where near that point. I did read that if everyone would just wear masks we could operate pretty normally. Japan hasn’t had to shut down because they all wear masks. Problem in the US everyone is too busy shouting about their rights to what has to be done to move on πŸ˜”.

    Anyway… Glad you got to go to a restaurant. Sounds so nice! We ordered pizza and it was my highlight lol.

    Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      I do know that if we wore more mask it would help but I also think it’s political and I think they are making things out to be worse than it is to tank our economy but then that is my conspiracy thinking going…lol. πŸ™‚

      I have a feeling we are never going to be normal again. πŸ™

    Watching scooby sounds great. I drove near downtown and found out that the farmer’s market was open which was shocking. This is my time to your blog @theglobaldig.blogspot.com

    Well I hope they figure things out soon too, but those in charge don’t seem interesting in that. They prefer to brag about what a great job they are doing instead of actually doing anything. We aren’t going out even once things start to open up. I’ve been more focused on ebooks than audiobooks now that I’m reading more again. I had a period where I just was too moody to read either but that has passed. YAY.

    The weather has been gorgeous here but now we are getting 5 days of rain.

    Have a great week and stay well.

    It’s been wet and rainy here all day and it is depressing lol. I’m over it, need some sun! And ooh Chinese. I’m jealous. I could eat Chinese every day lol.

  7. Carole

    I think that restaurants will be opening her tomorrow. I don’t think we will be going out to eat anytime soon since that wasn’t something we really did before the pandemic but I know that a lot of folks are as eager as you were. I completely understand how only audiobooks appeal to you right now. I had a lot of trouble focusing a couple of weeks back and found that listening to the book and following along in a print copy is what worked. Just do whatever feels right for right now. I hope you have a great week!

    My reading hasn’t been strong either. We’ve gotten way to into Animal Crossing and that’s taking up most of my time! I am doing okay working audio books in though. I’ll have to check out Scoob. I love Scooby Doo so I always get nervous when they redo things. Glad to hear they didn’t ruin it. Hope you have a great week!

    Wow, eating in a restaurant must be amazing!
    I love how you combine three events in one – makes it easier to write posts and coordinate posting schedules.
    On my end of things your blog is looking amazing πŸ™‚
