--- AVR News Update ---
Hello and Happy Sunday!

On the Home Front: Busy, busy, busy. I hate my life right now. We did have a Family Fun Day on Friday. We saw Spider-Man (how adorable is Tom Holland?!) then had custard at Freddy's.
Then in the evening we went to watch the Greensboro Grasshoppers. It was so fucking hot and the Grasshoppers lost. But then there were fireworks which were pretty fantastic. 
Ok, so these aren't the fireworks from our particular game, but it is our stadium and they are that cool. They do fireworks after every Fri. and Sat. home game. 

I have no plans to go ANYWHERE today. Seriously. I'm done. I have more shit to do this week, but no one has any appointments, so YAY!

Touching Nature: It's hot. H-O-T. Fuck this shit. No, really. I mowed yesterday. I had sweat everywhere. It wasn't dripping, it was running flat out. When I came in I took my temperature, you know, just for the hell of it, and it was 100.9º. I even mowed in the shade! Well, mostly shade. About 85% was shade. But I push mow, so I was dead when I came in.

Book News: I have 2 reviews to write and I'm almost done with another book. I drafted some blog posts, but other than that, I got nuffin.

Don't Touch That Dial!: No time for tv watching this week.

At the Flicks: Spider-Man: Homecoming! Great movie!

Cyberspace Playground: I did no cyberplaying.

Randomness: I LOVE THIS! 
Door Knocker Prank

Carol's Nuggets of Wisdom: You know how Yoda says: "Do, or do not. There is no try."? Well, fuck him. I want you to always try. Try your fucking best. You don't have to succeed or if you do, it doesn't have to be pretty (though it's okay if you succeed your ass off), but I expect you to at least try.

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

  1. I want Freddy's we don't have one by us but those look yummy!!!

    It's fucking HOT here too. I just stay inside. ;)

    I needed your nugget! Thanks for that! :) I will send over the images now, I just remembered :)

    Have a great week, Carol! Happy Reading! ox

  2. Mmmmm...that ice cream sure looks good! I hope you have a good week!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  3. It's really hot here too, I go out about 7:30 at night to water my garden and I still get all sweaty. :(

    I guess I must be in the minority on this new Spiderman movie cause I just thought it was okay. I thought the first half was kind of boring. Loved the ending though. :)

    Have a great week!

  4. I'm not familiar with Freddy's but in this heat looks to DIVINE :) Yikes - mowing does not sound pleasant. Guess that's one benefit to being stuck in a tiny apartment!

    That door knocker video was pretty great. I need one!
    Have a great week - stay home and stay cool ;)

  5. It's a heat wave here too. I work outside and come home everyday with my clothes so wet I have to peel them off. First thing I do is hit the pool. I slacked off a bit this week and now I'm behind and it's time to buckle down. Stay cool!

  6. It's damn hot here, too. On Tuesday I went out to my mom's house (so old no HVAC can be done) and I was sweating after just an hour inside. I am thankful The Man refuses to hear anything about me mowing or doing yard work due to my allergies, but I grew up mowing an acre plot with a push mower...with hardly any shade. Good luck with your busy week!

  7. I have a former student who is playing for the Greensboro Grasshoppers right now! He was just drafted after finishing school at UNC Chapel Hill!! So, if you go again, cheer extra hard for Brian Miller!!!
    Its miserably hot here. And the humidity is awful.
