Diary Entry

August 3rd 2014
It's been a long time since I wrote one of these posts. I've been such a huge slacker with the older one home it's been hard to find time to read or just blog for fun. However I think after almost half the summer I've gotten a routine. We also have the new puppy who is growing constantly. After lots of waiting my hubby has his blue tick and it's hard to believe she's already 4 months.
Grimm & Khaleesi 
 With the hubby out of town so much the last two months she's been keeping me busy. Hard to believe she's almost 40lbs. Going to be a big girl. Even after 8 weeks my big boy is still jealous of her but they love to play together. It's so odd best friends unless she get's near mommy. (he's sleeping by my feet as I write this my shadow)

So mostly this last few weeks has been reading, puppies, kids and baking. With the hubby home no baking, and limited reading but I'm trying to get it in when I can.

Currently reading

The Night Circus
by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night. 

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.

This one is for my book club and I've heard so many wonderful things about it. 

Bookish ramblings
As I'm writing this blog it just so happens that Underworld is on TV just can't seem to get enough of the whole vampire concept recently. I prefer them not to sparkle but I don't need them to be all bad. 

So I saw the 1st episode of Outlander is on indemand on TV today. I haven't read the book yet but I'm going to try to read ahead each week before it happens in the show. It is a really long book and with all my challenges currently I don't know if I will get to it all at once. 

I'm planning on catching up on the Lux Series since I'm so behind with the new one coming out. 

Goodreads rambling
I'm currently at 85 of my 200 books goal. I need to kick it up or I'm not going to meet the 200 goal. I guess this is what happens when I went from 150 to 200. Hopefully I'll be able to get a bunch in when the hubby deploys in a few months.  

I feel like I just keep adding to my TBR list and it's never ending. However one day I hope to read them all. Currently I have roughly 7k books on my TBR list, reading at 200 per it will take me 35 years. Eeek. 

What are you reading?
