Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts (9)

I'm linking up with Bookishly Boisterous' Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts.  Check it out here!

1.) I need to speed up my reading.  Right now I'm reading Prince Lestat by Anne Rice and I'm struggling.  I love the Vampire Chronicles but this book is very different than the others and I'm not sure exactly where the story is going to go.  I'm going to power through it but I'm ready to be done (and not just because I have to return it to the library on Wednesday).

2.) Speaking of the library, I hate having overdue books.  I know I'm probably going to have one this week but it makes me feel so bad to turn them in late.  Especially if I know there are people waiting for them.

3.) I've been trying to find the perfect white cake recipe for the wedding cake I'm making in May.  I have been trying out different recipes every weekend.  I think I may have found one but I'm not sure yet.  I'm going to try it with frosting this week to make sure I like it.

4.) I need to take a break from social media.  It is such a waste of time.  I don't know why I care about it so much.  Sometimes I wish we could go back to the days before we all were attached to iphones all the time.

5.) My dog is about as needy as my child.  I swear, I don't need to have another kid because I already have two.  He always tries to eat Julia's food, toys, clothes, shoes.  Yesterday he ate a dried up wipe she was playing with.  HEADDESK.

6.) The President of the United States will be speaking at the university I work at.  It's so awesome! They made tickets available to staff, students and faculty at 9:00 am this morning.  Today was the first day of spring classes, how the heck is any staff member supposed to be able to stand in line all morning on the first day of class?   I have stuff to do!  Needless to say, I will not be able to attend.

Have a great week!


  1. Oh, I totally agree about social media...but then I keep going there...LOL. I haven't been as connected to it on my new iPhone (Phoebe); the tiny spaces are not conducive to long visits...for me.

    Cute photo of Julia and the those are the moments.


    1. I also have a hard time spending a lot of time on social media on my phone. So many words in such a small space is kind of overwhelming for me at times.

  2. Can you re-check out your library books online? I do that sometimes when I can't get them back in time. The President is at an University in a town close to me today. My two dogs are my kids, so I understand that! I get up at about 2 or 3 in the morning to take them outside to potty and have their breakfast.
    If you have time, come by and check out my Bookish and not so Bookish Thoughts.

    1. I can but this book has a hold on it so they won't let me renew it. I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the week.

      I know a lot of people say pets aren't like kids but I totally think that's a lie. Our dog is our first baby and he's as much work as our human baby. : )

  3. Overdue library books? What are the fines like these days?

    1. It's only 15 cents a day but I always feel guilty for turning them in late when I know there are people waiting for the book.
