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

On the Home Front: I've been burying my nose in books. Lots of them. And not getting much done. Hopefully this week will see me being more productive. I mean, besides whittling down my review list which is no small thing.

Walmart had a nice grill on sale for $100, so we decided to take advantage. We replaced our approx 17-yr-old grill that has really seen better days. We're going to convert it to a charcoal/wood chip grill and possibly use it to smoke. Not sure about that yet. Will need to read up.

Touching Nature: Rain, rain, rain. Finally some sun yesterday and today. We need to transplant some tomatoes that were getting waterlogged and at some point I will need to mow.

Book News: I've read and read. I seem to be in binge mode and I'm pretty sure it's depression-linked. But I'm coming out of it. I do have 14 reviews to write now, so I need to get on the stick.

Don't Touch That Dial!: A few more CSI.

At the Flicks: We saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last Sunday. It was ok. Very adrenaline-laden, but the story line was meh.

Cyberspace Playground: Ziparoo

Randomness: Me. Totally me.
Carol's Nuggets of Wisdom: Write reviews as soon as you can after reading a book. Don't be like me where I now have 14 to write and some were from late June. Gah!

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

  1. Love the tailgate thing. Congrats on the grill deal. Sorry the binge is depression related and hope it passes. May the sunshine for you all week!

  2. I missed grilling out. My last one bit the rust. LOL I'll be watching for sales now. Best time to get great deals on outdoor stuff and things for the pool. I've already got a stack of new swim suits and summer casual clothes for next year. It sounds like we're having the same weather too. This weekend was perfect. Sunny and hot and the pool felt so good:)

  3. I’ve also been reading a lot. I’m 8 reviews behind. I have to write them before I forget everything that happened in the books. Enjoy your new books. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. I wondered what was going on with all the reviews that needed writing. I should have figured it out. I do the same book binge thing when I am depressed. But I have to stop and write the reviews shortly after reading them. Otherwise I have to go back and refresh my memory. Aging sucks!

    I hope this week is full of sunshine and stunted grass, so you don't have to mow.

  5. We needs some rain for a good drenching. We'll still have plenty of stupid hot days well into September. I think I've also been doing the same as you pretty much all summer, burying myself in binge watching and messing around on my phone. Or maybe it's just because I'm a teacher and it's summer and I can do what I want.
