With all the chaos of the trip to Dallas to get my brother in law my sleep pattern/reading time has been…. well… wonky. I have not been my best emotionally due to these things. I am on mood stabilizers, and so long as I keep to a fair routine I am alright. I do fall victim to depression from time to time though. I fear it caught me this week. I was reading a book that I would normally have liked, I think, but because of my current blues could not relax into it. I felt too much, was too sad. I have set aside Disaster Falls until I am feeling better.
Saturday we spent the day with the O’hana celebrating my sister’s dog’s birthday (yeah… you heard me. There was even doggie cake.). P-chan the pug was pretty excited about all that. I was more excited about the steak and cannoli inspired cake for the humans. Mom comes up with the best desserts!
Earlier this week I saw my Mary Kay lady where I bought the Timewise Revealing Radiance facial peel. That is a mouthful! I get acne and redness on my face regularly, and I am starting to really wrinkle. Vane as I am, I don’t like this. Using this 10 min mask twice a week I am supposed to see a more even tone, less wrinkles, brighter skin…. so on and so forth. We shall see. I liked it the first time I used it, and some of my smaller bumps disappeared. The redness got worse if anything… but I was told I would have to use this for a while.
I got an ARC of this one from Netgalley. While there were some issues, I really enjoyed this book.
Otherwise, I have been reading the USA Today trying to understand what’s going on with the inauguration and Trump’s choices of cabinet members. I have to admit to being really confused by a lot of it.
This one is a current DNF, I am just not in the right mind frame for it right now.
Another Netgalley pick. I am slowly making my way through this one. There are some technical inconsistencies, and pacing issues; but I am really interested in the story. I don’t know much about Russia under Stalin, so the historical aspect is very interesting to me. I have two pages of notes and am only half way done.
I have the next few days off, so I am hoping to make some headway and go on to either the Jaimie Quinn mystery/thrillers or Never never by James Patterson.
So that’s me, how was your week?
