The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
What I did Last Week
I didn’t have much time for reading this week, but I did finish the audio book of Redshirts. This was a different book, I enjoyed it for the most part but I also found some parts to be annoying. I’ll be posting a full review of this book in November.
I spent quite a bit of time watching TV this week. On the PVR I watched more episodes of The Incredible Dr. Pol and a few episodes of Battle Castle. I know I also spent several hours staring at the TV but not really paying attention to what I was watching. On Netflix I watched the documentary Ghosts of the Mountain, which was supposed to be about snow leopards, but is actually more of a documentary about the people and challenges of making a documentary about snow leopards, so while okay it wasn’t what I was expecting. For Family Movie Night we watched Speed Racer, which was weird but good. We also watched Office Space this weekend with a couple of people my hubby works with who had never seen it, so that was fun.
Didn’t do a lot due to being sick, so the first half of the week was mostly spent laying on the cough, watching TV and trying really hard to cough up my lungs. I did a bit of work in garden over the weekend, pulling plants out and readying the beds for winter. I also did some baking for orders – which mostly equated to making lots of dog treats.I took another load of donations out of the house because things aren’t selling and I refuse to hold onto this stuff for months just to make a few bucks.
What I Plan To Do This Week
I’m not 100% sure what I will read this week. I may focus on finishing up Prophecy, or I might pick up a new short book. I think it’s going to be one of those weeks were I base my book choices on my mood.
I’m running out of things to watch on the PVR and that’s a good thing. It’s finally down to under fifty items, so it won’t be long now before there is nothing on it. I think I will watch more Battle Castle this week, because I have been really enjoying that show.
I have no idea what I need to do this week. I might just take it as an easy week, since I still have a pretty good lingering cough from my cold and I don’t want to push myself too hard until it’s fully gone.
