Happy Friday and a happy Saint Patrick’s Day, book friends! Today also happens to be my birthday, and my mom is coming into town to spend a few days with me to celebrate.

This week has been pretty chill, all things considered. I got some reading done, took a lot of walks, and sent off a couple of pitches. Even though Daylight Savings isn’t my favorite as an early riser, we did get to take advantage of having more light after work and go for an evening walk around the lake that’s nearby.

Azula loves getting visits from her grandma, so I’m excited to see her realize that grandma is here this afternoon. I’m also excited to show her the house and spend some time going shopping in the local area for the first time! Will I wind up with more books? Perhaps.

Anyway, that’s about all I’ve got to say about this week, so let’s dive in to the weekly post recap! But first, please enjoy this adorable photo in which Azula decided to lick my books while I was trying to get a Two for Tuesday post for Instagram:

That’s all for this week, book friends! I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

Happy Friday, book friends! We started the week with no power, but thankfully it was restored on Monday night, so the rest of the week has been relatively normal. We spent the workday at my in-laws’ house, and Azula had a lot of fun stealing every toy that Uncle Dewey has. He was less enthused.

Azula got plenty of walks in the subdivision behind our house, and she’s even getting comfortable enough with her new surroundings that she doesn’t constantly look ongingly back towards home. She’s been pretty energetic the last few days, I think grateful that the house is warm and bright again.

I took a bit of time off reading on Tuesday to enjoy having power and internet, but I kept right on with my morning reading routine and am slowly making my way through Witches of America. This morning I learned I am possibly related to the founder of a tradition the author is researching, since he is descended from the Blue Fugates, as am I. So that was interesting to discover.

This weekend, we’ll be doing some cleaning around the house as we’re having friends over to play board games on Sunday. Andy got a new board game as a housewarming gift, and he’s very excited to be able to play it (it requires 3-4 people and we’ve yet to teach Azula to play board games with us).

My birthday is a week from today, and it feels like it’s coming especially quicky this year. My mom is coming to visit for a few days to celebrate and see our new house, so that will be a fun time. I’ve got one more week to make jokes about being 30, flirty, and thriving before I turn over to 31.

That’s pretty much it in terms of updates from Azula and I for this week! Hope you’ve had a good week and that you’ve got fun weekend plans ahead.
