So how was everyone's St. Patrick's Day weekend? Are you hungover? Just a little bit? Well, then, I'm glad you had fun. Ours was pretty low-key. We hung around the house all day and then the hubby took CJ grocery shopping while I took a nap. When they came home, hubby made a delicious corned beef dinner. Yum! Oh and we watched Boondock Saints. Obviously.
Yesterday, the weather here in Massachusetts was freaking goooorgeous. So we had to get out. After hubby turned the corned beef dinner into a delicious corned beef hash for breakfast, we met up with Craig's sister at the park. The first thing CJ did when we got to the park was climb a set of stairs up to a woman he'd never met before and sit down on her lap. She was nice and didn't mind at all. She and CJ had a little conversation. Then CJ played on the swings for a little while. Kami, our dog, came with us and so we walked her all around the park. This is where the dog fighting comes in.
|CJ's new friend.|
After the dog fight, CJ was being so protective of his doggie. Another little dog came over to sniff around her and CJ stood between the two of them so it couldn't get to Kami. Then when it got too close, he gave a little kick at her. He didn't hit it, was just warning it not to get too close. Such a good little brother, protecting his sister.
|CJ and Auntie. He alternated between laughing like this and looking like he was going to vomit.|
|Attempt #1 - 70 degrees and he needed all of the blankets. All of them.|
|Attempt #2 - As you can see, he wasn't at all tired....|
As far as reading, I've got a bunch of picture books that I'm reading to review in the coming weeks. I've got some netgalley books to read. I'm listening to the audiobook of The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie. I read half of this book and I really liked it, but the writing is incredibly flowery and descriptive that it started to give me a headache. Hearing it read is much easier. The narrator is doing a wonderful job. I might review this when I'm done too. I have 10 hours of it left since I only get about an hour of it a night. OH! And I'm almost done reading A Dance with Dragons, the 5th Game of Thrones/ Song of Fire and Ice book. I'm so sad! I need George to finish writing book 6 right now. I put off finishing it for months because I didn't want to have to wait years for the next one, but I needed more Tyrion, Jaime, and Jon Snow in my life.
So that's what is going on with us. What are you guys reading these days ? How did you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Don't forget to enter my giveaways this week.
