If we were having coffee/tea, I would invite you to have a seat on the patio. I have ice tea and coffee out there. There a high pressure ridge forming over a large portion of western coast. Our temperatures are forcast for near 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The Sunday will be the hottest day. I shouldn’t complain as Arizona, southern California days will be over 100. Bob took Kato out early this morning. For those wandering my pain level is down as my allergies and stomach are under conto leavIng only my muss lr and joint pain. I’m behind in reading e-mailsย ย and coffee share ogs. I will tried to better this week. I don’t have as many books to read.

Picture above are the green heron and a male acorn woodpecker. The woodpecker hides acorns trees for used later. We made a short trip to a store this morning to get bathroom mats and glassware. The last time I brought any glassware was in 1995. ย I feel it about time for new ones, especially with the hot weather. I got the bathroom mats, but the only glasses I found were plastic and not dishwasher safe.

  4. That’s a long list! But Ink & Bones is on my Review List as well, Betty Louise! Hope you have a nice weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Don’t forget good ol’ Northern California! Temps from 95-104 all last week and today. What a huge list of books you have reviewed!

    • The underground weather map the heat would the entire Western coast. Not like Arizona, southeast California and probably New Mexico where temperatures will reach will over 100 degrees. I usually read a book a day. How I requested so many I really don’t know. June 28 and August 2 will have number of books. I find it hard to stay off of NetGalley.

    Thanks for the invite! Hope you feel better soon.. We are in the 80s mostly here in Metro Detroit, today only in the upper 60s, but it should warm back up soon. Our season is so short. Sounds like you’ve got some good reading lined up!
