Well, it was bound to happen eventually, but my mind is too crowded with other things to read. I lost my edge according to Goodreads and am now falling behind in my reading goals for the year. It was nice when I was ahead because it was a sense of accomplishment, but I couldn't even keep that together. I am not even sure if I should be posting today because I am not in the best mood, so excuse things if it creeps into my post too much. On top of things we waited too long to get Casey fixed and she went into heat for the first time like a week or so ago. And then yesterday she went into heat again. I can't really afford to get her fixed right now because of the whole job situation (or well, lack of job situation) and she is driving me bonkers. The fact that the guy will probably have to take care of that, too, is making me feel terrible. So, yep, I am having a bad morning... Moving on...
|I received this postcard from Tasha. I apologize about the flash. I have been taking the pictures with Instagram because Twitter names come up (well, some do). With just using my camera and putting it up on Twitter, names weren't coming up at all...|
|I received this Iowa postcard from Jeanne.|
|Another one from Jeanne. Thanks Jeanne!|
|Then, Sam sent me one from Minneapolis. Thanks Sam!|
As I have said before, I enjoy receiving postcards period, but if you are interested in which states I still need cards from it is currently: Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. And, I count one for Mississippi, but I am only guessing. So, I am at 38/50. That means I crossed 6 places off my list in a month. That's not too shabby!
Poetry: Read More/Blog More - A Monthly Event
This month get your poetry posts up between the 25th and the 29th and then I will wrap things up on the 30th. We had a decent turnout this month, but I am hoping things will pick up!
Trish's Pinterest Challenge
I did my Day by Day Journal and have been keeping it up. Sometimes I have no idea what to write, but I generally find something. I am trying to keep it positive things only. Then, I read Code Name Verity and the second Cinderella Fables. I had pinned both of those. And, that's it. I thought for sure I had pinned Hex Hall and If I Stay, but didn't see them when I went looking for them. If my reading was going a bit better there probably would have been more...
Operation: Use My...
I am sort of feeling uninspired, so I am going to just cheat and make it my camera again. I managed to take a picture everyday in May, so hopefully June will go well, too. Then in July I will hopefully come up with a new project. I just have too much else going on to worry about it right now.
Nothing this week...
This is for a TLC Book Tour. My review will be up on the 6th.
And, that's it... So much for my plans to read a couple books this weekend.
The Voluntourist by Ken Budd (TLC Book Tour)
