Listening to the Laura Palmer narration. It was on sale today. Suits my mood. My dog died.

Leftcoastzen I‘m so sorry for your loss.💔 1y
CherryPie @Leftcoastzen Thank you! He was my chill dude. I don't think it was an accident that the pound never named him and hung a giant 420 tag around his neck. He's missed. 1y

🚹 3 characters I recently enjoyed.

🌞 Portable, redneck and fans. Antique house and a dog in congestive heart failure. Heatwave killed one of my heart failure dogs last year.

📚 🐕 🐱👩 Reading with dogs in my lap and cat on my head.

✈ 🚢 Drowning, plane crash or plane crashing into ocean or stuck in sinking ship. Titanic was still missing when I was wee.

😴 See phobias above. Also, I always win the zombie apocalypse. 🏆

Prime Day haul: spent $7.31 for nothing. Wanted a Paperwhite but received the wrong ereader. Cost me $7.31 to send it back. Also returned my dad's broken Tap but that shipping was free. Wish I could get a sale priced Paperwhite somewhere else and also now (not just 2 days a year). Being half-blind, I should get more into audiobooks. 😲 #primeday

Envious of my neighbor's rain barrel, I enjoyed this book. While not desert focused, unfortunately (for me), there are enough succulents, gravel and natives references to keep me entertained. Now, to get off my duff and add that barrel, and what the hell, a new brush bordered patio to the front yard.

CarolynM It's a very cool barrell😍 1y

God, I love Shit On a Shingle. Is this an S.O.S.? Did David need an intervention? Should I ask Alexa to play ABBA?

Thought I'd give it a go (as I mostly read non-fic in childhood). Ebook formatting is odd. With its mandatory horizontal two page layout, everything is so tiny! Must try on larger device.

I see this sentiment in every decluttering/minimalism/death-cleaning/coziness/whathaveyou book.

I dumped my physical library in 2004-ish. I don't remember what I was thinking at the time. I have some art books now. That's it. Don't miss it. A surprising thought coming from a Henry Bemis type.

My dog is dying and I can't read. I just sit here with him in my lap. It could be soon. It could be months from now (though I doubt it). Congestive heart failure. Every heatwave freaks me out. Damn you, summer. Damn you to Hell (except it's hot there; you'd probably like it). His name is Aldo. He's my five pound chill dude.

Eggs Awwww I'm so sorry 😔💔(((hugs))) 1y

CherryPie @Eggs Thank you. He's blind and deaf so we've gotten really close since my other died (also of CHF) last year. He's a good guy. 1y

🐙Most often? Radio while cooking via Echo. Followed by music, audiobooks and, dead last, podcasts (they all sound like goats, affected goats).
🐙Last day of school? Probably the day State students get wasted and plow into our parked cars. One spun into my driveway 2 years ago. Hot tip: Pot's legal but not WHILE you're driving, kids. @jesshowbooks #friyayintro

Mo bitterness. Less awkward charm. Or, vice versa. We, David and I, are out of sync with this book. Ex. My fave Sedaris work is his diary-ish, Theft by Finding. Understanding Understanding Owls was the most memorable essay. I love the cover. No regrets. Ever onward!

🐚 Children's Pool, unfortunately, was my fave beach. Completely destroyed by a cowardly city, tourism and the squirrels of the sea (seals-oh, aren't they just so adorable!?! No, no, they're not. We need a hungry White Shark over there, pronto. Bad lungs here. Breathing their stank sucks).
