What a week it’s been! I’m not sure what’s going on out there in the universe right now, but oh boy are the vibes off. Work has continued to be super busy, and on top of that we had the whole broken down car debacle on Wednesday morning.

Hectic energy aside, it’s been a pretty standard week for Azula and I in terms of our morning and evening routines. Tuesday night, I watched the second week of Great British Bake Off with my fantasy league friends (my team is doing okay–not first, not last). Otherwise, I was home with Azula snuggled up and enjoying the cooler weather.

I’m gearing up for my weekend away by downloading audiobooks for the trip and mentally preparing to not see Azula for two days. I’ve got Something Wiler by Christina Lauren lined up for the trip and intend to beg my husband for snaps of Azula whenever possible.

Around the house, we’ve done a bit of seasonal cleaning and I’m getting ready to decorate for the Halloween season (including some ideas for the Little Free Library and the blog!)

I can’t wait to start my spooky season reading and Blogtober, so I’m definitely feeling that end of the month eagerness to turn the page of my planner more than usual. I also keep telling myself October will bring a slowdown at work, but we’ll see what happens!

Hope you’ve had a decent week with plenty of reading time to spare, book friends!

Happy Friday, book friends! Today is another Friday off from work, and I am grateful for two three-day weekends in a row. This time of year, I really need them. I’ll still be holding virtual office hours for my Intro to Writing students, but at least I don’t have to deal with my morning commute.

It’s been a blur of a week with a ton of work to do, and I am exhausted. I’ve been whizzing through audiobooks as my commute continues to be a frustrating mess. Pittsburgh has become home to me in many ways, but the infrastructure of this old city is definitely showing its wear and tear, and we’ve got all the construction projects to prove it.

On Monday, I had to reroute my drive home thanks to a gas line break closing the road I normally take home, making my 45 minute commute well over an hour. When I wasn’t frantically trying to figure out where the heck to go to get home, I was enjoying my audiobook.

In the evenings, I’ve been enjoying the cooler weather and couch cuddles with Azula while getting some reading done. Last night, Mr. Your Book Friend joined us for a nice family reading hour before the Steelers game started.

In all, another “busy but business as usual” kind of week for us. How was your week?
