Monday Morning Check-In: I have the plague…

Good Monday morning everyone.  Not a lot of reading going on last week, again.  Some week I’m going to log on here and regale you all with all the books I managed to finish in the previous week.  Last week, however, was not a great week for reading.  I had to break my Facebook vacation to seek help after a dog attack on my livestock.  I came home from work to find two dogs chasing one of my llamas.  A Great Pyrenees the size of a small pony, and a young German Sheppard puppy, had killed one of my roosters, run off all my peafowl, and driven one of my llamas through a five-foot solid fence and over a gate into another pasture.  The poor girl was simply terrified and it took 20 minutes to walk her back to her flock after I convinced her to stand up.  I held on to the dogs overnight and turned them over to a rescue group the next day.  The owners have been found and the dogs returned but they have not stopped to offer to pay for the damage their dogs did.  I hope they never come back because next time they come to terrorize my pets my husband is going to shoot them.   The animals have recovered and are all returning to normal behaviors.  It was a traumatizing couple of days.

By the end of the week, I came down with some bug.  Either the flu or a cold all I know is that I feel like crap and it feels like I swallowed broken glass.  Today my plan is to sit on the couch, drink tea, and listen to an audiobook while I work on paperwork or knit.  I have two books to pick from one over 24 hours and the other just under 7.  I might pause the long one and knock out the short one so I feel like I accomplished something reading-wise.

Well, I have probably complained enough.  If you follow the blog on Facebook sorry if you’ve missed some posts.  Apparently, when I blocked the site during my Facebook vacation it severed my cross-posting ability.  I have logged back in and am going to try simply willpower to keep me off FB during my year-long break.  That way you can still have links to my posts.

Happy Reading, Amy
