AVR News Update
For once, this has been a fairly quiet week here. Yes, there have been a few kids sick, but nothing serious. The most exciting thing to happen was I won a book in a LibraryThing Giveaway that I didn't even enter. *fist pump* Score! I also rec'd in my mailbox a book for review from an author. My husband will be able to read that one before I do and he loves mysteries, so he's happy. I will figure out a way for him to guest review that, but since he does not like to write I may make it interview style. lol

I got very little read today (Saturday) since I was busy doing household chore-type stuff and then I went outside to engage in Battle II of Leafageddon. I and my loyal companion, That-Which-Blows-Leaves, were victorious though it took 3 hours of strenuous fighting. I am sore already. I do not want to think how I will feel tomorrow. I wish my mattress was one big hot water bottle. I have a feeling I'm gonna need it.

AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

    1. Yep, I had one, too. I still even have the foundation for it, double drawers and everything but we got a regular mattress now instead. lol

      Thanks! :)

  2. Ah, yes, water beds! (hot water bottles).

    Heating pads are my constant companion...any exercise requires it.

  4. I haven't heard before of most of the books you got this week. I did came across What The Plus once when I was searching for a good book about google+, if I remember correctly I ended up buying Google + for dummies instead, only read the first few pages.

    1. I do tend to come across the odd books. lol I haven't cracked What the Plus open yet, but if it's not what I need then at least I got it from the library. :)

  5. Leafageddon, good one! A long hot soak in a bubble bath might help with the sore muscles.

    Happy reading :)

    1. I do love the trees all year long. It's the leaves on the ground I don't enjoy. lol I can't believe we raked leaves for a few years before we bought our 1st leaf blower. O.O

  22. Sorry to hear about the sick kids; I hope everyone is feeling better now. I laughed at your description of battling leaves with your trusty companion. My husband did the same thing on Sunday afternoon. He did an awesome job despite the handicap of finishing well after dark, but he's been pretty sore, too!

    1. Everyone appears to be better now. *fingers crossed* I've been known to battle leaves after dark, too. I'm glad I got done before that this time though. I'm lobbying hard for a backpack blower. The handheld makes the muscles in my shoulders down to my hands sore. lol
