monday musings…



Happy Monday everyone!

20170520_173124

I don’t know if you follow me on, or use, Instgram (@teamsheltie) but I try to participate in #socksunday each week. My dog Fonzi usually joins but this week we had a photobomber and nothing went how it was supposed to. Fonzi got pushed out - books were sent flying lol Finally ended up with something decent and funny outtakes.

I’m attributing this to Figment thinking he is a delicate fucking flower! lol That boy is a handful and a half! Highest maintenance cat I’ve ever owned. He’s having dental surgery on Tuesday so please think good thoughts for my bratty boy.

Reading:

download (11)I was on track with my 6 book TBR reading goal for May until I read a book for fun and it had a cliffhanger. Noooooo – so I had to pick up book #2 right away or else I could not go on! It sucked and put me in a bad mood and gah! Hate that.

Today I’m getting back to that pile and reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo. Sounds like just the book I need to get out of my pending slump.

Pondering:

I’m thinking of joining in Tell Me Something Tuesday this week if I have time to draft something up for tomorrow’s question - What do you do when you hit a blogging wall?
So check back tomorrow and I may or may not have a new post

  2. I signed up for Get Social - there's hope I can manage it LOL. At least it doesn't involve actual posting. I don't need the added stress right now.

    I love Figment in the first pic. He's hilarious! Boo for yet another dental surgery, poor thing. No wonder he's cranky (well, more cranky than usual ;D). Sending good vibes!

    1. It's crazy how many people have quit and I'm not really into vlogging which seems to be where everyone is headed.

  4. Ah the cat bombed the photos! They are good at that kind of thing, I think they secretly enjoy annoying us!

    Good luck to him with his surgery...

    1. Anna hosts a lot of fun events to help connect bloggers. And most are very low key and not convoluted or too much work.

  10. Love it, cat's so frequently shove themselves in when no one has asked for their presence and you are somehow always charmed by them. I think they know when you're attention is drifting from them and they will cause chaos to get it back. I love the socks, they are totally awesome I am very jealous.

    And isn't it the worst when you let yourself read something for fun and it ends up ruining your reading plans. Fingers crossed a slump doesn't happen a and Thing Called Love helps get you out of it.

    1. He hates when I read lol He rarely comes around for my book pictures though but he would NOT GO AWAY!

      The socks are from Blue Q and I Believe in a Thing Called Love is really cute so far.

  11. I signed up for the Social Blogger event too. I do have an Instagram account but I can't do anything with it because I don't have a phone. I only have a laptop and so I really don't use Instagram. Love the pictures though.

    1. I've been reluctant to join features because they end up feeling like a chore but I used to host Book Blogger Confessions and this is kind of similar and a way to share the stresses.

  18. Great socks, adorbs cat. Good luck to the fluffy boy during his surgery! I Believe in a Thing Called Love looks so freakin' cute - I hope it pulls you out of your slump. Surprisingly I've been pretty good about hopping around to new (to me) blogs this year, but I might have to check out the social blogging event anyway!
