Furbaby Friday: Azula’s Week In Reading 5/27/22

Happiest of Fridays, book friends! I have today off because my workplace gave us an extra day off for the Memorial Day holiday. Naturally this means I’m in an extra good mood!

Or as good a mood as I can be while processing yet another mass shooting here in the States. I don’t talk about these things on the blog, but I do think about them and try to take action for change IRL. Here in the internet world, I generally try to keep it light because sometimes you need to take a minute and just think about something good. Like books and adorable snuggle pups, for instance.

Azula and I hard at work this morning

In my personal life, it’s been a pleasantly busy week, which always leaves me feeling accomplished. I got through the first week of my course about supporting transfer students and checked off a number of items on my to do list.

Did I also get stuck in horrible traffic and spend over an hour trying to get home from work on Wednesday? Yup. On the bright side I now know that my car does have a low fuel light. I’ve just never seen it because I have anxiety and refill the tank long before it ever comes on. Except when my commute randomly lasts over an hour when it should be 25 minutes.

As for Azula, she’s had a pretty good week overall. She only had to be home alone during one workday, and all of her friends came over to throw the ball for her! (We hosted our weekly Dungeons & Dragons session on Wednesday, so folks were around the table and subject to Azula thrusting her ball into their laps.)

Yesterday, she got to go to the park for big ball fetchies and she got three walks. Then, she got to snuggle with me while I read Lessons in Chemistry, which features a very smart dog that I’m only constantly stressed about because I’m scared something bad will happen to him. Like Six-Thirty (the dog in the book), Azula has many important jobs to do, including licking my hand when I’m reading, as she did when we transitioned up to the bed last night.

Very important hand kisses

Azula doesn’t know about the holiday weekend yet but she’s about to get four days of extra walkies and attention. And I’m going to get lots of reading done, plus continue cleaning up around the house.

I hope you’ve had a great week, book friends, and a great weekend ahead!

Furbaby Friday: Azula’s Week in Reading 5/13/2022

Happy Friday, book friends! Azula was very relieved to have a pretty normal week after the weirdness of being in different houses with different people during our honeymoon. While she enjoyed visiting with her Auntie Steph and playing with her best buddy Ozzy, she was definitely pretty stoked to see us when we came to pick her up last week, and even more stoked to see her own home again.

This week we got back to the routine of reading and cuddles in the morning, regular walkies, and plenty of ball fetchies. There was also some excitement in the form of a cat hanging out in the back yard and the arrival of Azula’s monthly PupBox.

It’s also officially porch reading season, which means we spent some time out in the sunshine enjoy a book (me) and a frozen peanut butter bunny (Azula). A few nights this week, it was hot enough for us to turn on the AC unit in the bedroom, where I’ve been retreating more often to read before bed. Azula likes to join me for some snuggles and to take full advantage of the one room in our house that gets reliably cool during the summer.

In all, this was a week of settling back into our routines before Andy heads off on a business trip late next week and Azula has to navigate a little bit of weirdness again.

This weekend, I’m hoping to do a good bit of writing and reading, since we don’t have any major plans on the horizon. Andy is going to finally dig and cement a hole for our Little Free Library, which means she should be up and ready to go in the next few weeks. I can’t wait to share pictures with you all and begin sharing books with the neighborhood!

That’s it from Azula & me this week, book friends! How was your week? Any good reading plans ahead for the weekend?
