AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

April had her ultrasound and our next grandbaby is...
Coming soon to a bassinet near us. 
March 2, 2016

On the Home Front: I feel like I've run all over Hell's Half-Acre this week. My feet are smokin'.

Touching Nature: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, um, I mean I picked the last of the peppers since the temp was forecasted to drop into the 30s. We had a bonfire Fri evening and s'mores were consumed. Not by me. I don't like them. I just like plain ol' roasted marshmallows. I will most likely need to mow one last time (all that rain a few weeks ago gave the grass/weeds a boost) and the Leafpocalypse has begun. Me and my trusty sidekick Leaf Blower will be out there fighting the good fight one day this week. Maybe tomorrow. We'll see.

Book News: I've been reading, writing up the reviews and mostly staying caught up. Thanks to a shitload of freebies from NoiseTrade I dropped below the 20 books behind mark for my Goodreads Challenge, but I'm back up to 20 today. I have enough graphic novels to get me caught up. Just need to read them. And write the reviews.

Don't Touch That Dial!: Hubby & I finally finished Season 5 of Buffy (Buffy, noooooo!!!) and Season 2 of Angel, but we haven't had a chance to advance further than that and that's ok. He and Trip watched a few episodes of Arrow which is a show I've been wanting to try. They really like it, so I most likely will, too.

At the Flicks: I got nothin'.

Cyberspace Playground: Even though several of my YouTube subscriptions have new vids up I have resisted. 

Thanksgiving gets the shaft yet again.

And this for blowing my mind.

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.
Shelf Additions
From the library

Ok, I went a bit crazy when NoiseTrade offered up a shitload of graphic novels/comics free this past week. I picked up 22 which I will not list here. Why? Because I'm lazy. 'Nuff said.

Amazon Freebies
Free at time of drafting.
Look before you leap.


  1. I like s'mores OK but mainly I just want the chocolate bar. Maybe the graham cracker too... :) anyway I hear you on leafpocalypse, our lawn is smothered with leaves now too. Wish I could just burn them all but nooo, that's a no-no now. Sigh.

    I just finished Arrow S3 and good grief, the drama. Everybody lies to everybody on that show LOL. And then they get pissed when they figure out someone lied to them- even as they lie left and right. Ha ha I like it though. :)

  2. I'm not big on s'mores either. I like all the ingredients separate though. lol. Awww ... yay for a boy! It's been many, many years since I watched Buffy, but I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to. :D Have a great week.

  3. You don't like smores? While admittedly its been years..they do taste good around a campfire after a night of drinking. I do like a nice burnt marshmallow too. Glad you are trying to stay caught up on the reviews. Hope you are hungover free.

  4. Congrats on the upcoming male addition to the family!

    Glad you're enjoying Buffy (and trying to remember if you've seen it). I had hoped to do some re-watching soon but have been away. Perhaps next weekend as I LOVE the scripts / dialogue!

  5. I didn't really like Arrow, Your touching nature paragraph made me chuckle, but the zombies pic really made me laugh ! Have fun with your 22 comics :)

  6. Thanks for the randomness chuckle. Great way to start a day.

  7. You need to read Arrow ASAP. It is AMAZING. It my favourite show ever it's just so good. Graphic novels is something I have wanted to try I just haven't got around to any. Have a great week.

  8. S'mores really need to make their way across the Atlantic to Scotland and all those other fall treats you guys have!

    Congrats on the new grandbaby!

  9. I don;t go nuts over smores - they need something else. caramel? nuts?
    Hugh was my favorite borg after 7/9.

  10. I like everything in S'mores but separate and not all mushed I like the Arrow and finally got caught up enough to be able to watch the seasons as the come on TV now. :)

    Enjoy your reads!
    Week in Review

  11. I like S'more but it has to be made into something like a cake or cookies, I can't do the bonfire type of S'mores. I love toasted marshmallows! Congrats on your new grand baby! Now you have one of each right? Girl and soon to be Boy? Love all of Buffy but Angel was better the last two seasons wish they would have done that with them from the beginning. (I'm not telling what but you will see) Thanks for keeping me awake last night! You crack me up and I love you too ;)

    Have a great week Carol! Happy Reading! ox

  12. BWAHAHAHAHA love that Christmas meme, and I will happily eat all your smores, you freak.:P

    I haven't heard of NoiseTrade before;I should check them out. Comics do help get your reading goal met. :) Heck, I count the books I read in the classroom. :D

    I love living in a condo; no grass mowing or leaf blowing for me. :)

    Have a great week!

  13. Congratulations on your new grandbaby! The days are flying by really fast so March will be here soon! I love Arrow but I'm behind on last season. I hope you get to watch it. I've been wanting to read more graphic novels so I'll have to check out Nosetrade. Have a great week!

  14. awww congrats on the new grandbaby boy :D always so exciting!!

  15. I love Arrow! I hope you get a chance to check it out. Congratulations on the new grandbaby! How wonderful! I need to read the stack of Walking Dead comics I bought earlier this year. Glad you got a chance to catch up on yours. Have a great week!

  16. I need to go check out your review of Spike the complete series. I'm just not really a graphic novel person, but I did love Spike! I also love your cartoons, especially the zombies in the manger scene. Have a great week!
