  1. Looks like you’ve have some good reads going on Vicki. I love that picture of Jasper – such a cute face. Have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. Nowhere For Very Long sounds really interesting. Jaspurr is so cute! Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

    • I only have about 36 min. left of Nowhere and I’m sad I’m almost finished with it.

      Thanks, I think Jaspurr is cute too 🙂

      I hope you have a relaxing weekend too! It’s cooker today than it has been so I can go outside without all that heat and humidity smacking me in the face 🙂

  3. Stay cool and find a place in the shade to enjoy a good book. Hope you’ve got something relaxing planned for the weekend.

  4. I love that your cat is reaching out to stay in touch; it’s so sweet and speaks volumes. I hope you’re having a good weekend. Wait. Do you have Covid? Is that why you’re having a staycation?

    • No Covid thank God! Just been working a lot of overtime. I got my schedule on Friday for the 2 weeks that started today and I only have 1 day off each week and will be working over a few days too. I need a mental break.

  5. I enjoyed the Beach Trap, which reminded me of the Haley Mills movie about the twins conspiring to get their parents together again.

  6. Love the picture of Jaspurr! Staycations can be wonderful – as long as you don’t get sucked into doing chores and that kind of thing. Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks, I love that kitty! Yes, staycations are great, especially with the Covid! I’ve gone a a few vacations since it hit but I’ve been working overtime and need a few days to just relax. Might go to the beach a few times but that’s about it. Thank you, I hope you have a great week too!

  7. It’s going to be 102 here tomorrow. 🙂 But much lower humidity. Enjoy your staycation.

    • I can take the heat a lot more than the humidity, it makes you feel like you’re in a sauna! Thanks, I’ll definitely enjoy it, it will be a break from work 🙂

  8. Our temps here have been cooler, in the 80s rather than the 90s, and I’m thrilled. Hope you are enjoying your cooler weather, too.

    The book of devotions sounds like a great way to start a day.

    I envy you your Jaspurr!

    • I’m definitely enjoying the cooler temps.

      I agree, and I have quite a few devotionals that I haven’t started yet.

      I LOVE animals! At one time we had 2-50 gallon and a few 10 gallon aquariums, 5 birds, an iguana, a dog, a cat, 3 hamsters, and a baby flying squirrel that had fallen out of a tree and it’s mom abandoned him. Now all I have is 2 cats and a dog. I’m wanting another bird though.

  9. You’ve put The Swimmers on the list! Have a good week, Vicki!

  10. That sweet kitty!!!! So cute with the paw!

    I had been waiting for your Swimmers review so I jumped right over to that. Sounds good! Adding it to my list. Now I wait impatiently to hear about Nowhere For Very Long because I DREAM of roadtripping / nomading all by myself…just me and my cat…but I am too terrified of evil humans lurking around campsites and on the side of the road to ever do it. I would need me a man with a gun and I’m ANTI-gun so I don’t know how that’s ever going to work! Hahahahaha.

    I’ve got a staycation coming up at the end of the month! Can’t wait!

    • Jaspurr is a sweetie, most of the time 🙂

      I hope you read The Swimmers and love it!

      I love going on vacations but at this time I just want a break from work, and Covid is bad here again so I just want to stay home and take a few day trips.

      I’ve dreamed of being a nomad for a few years, but like you, don’t want to do it alone. I like spending time with people too much to be alone much. And besides, who would I play card/board games with?

  11. Oh the picture of Jaspurr is adorable! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We haven’t been on vacation due to COVID and other things but definitely make the most of staycations. Hope you enjoy yours!

    • Thanks, I think Jaspurr is adorable too! I’ve been on a few vacations since Covid but want to do a few things in my area that we haven’t done yet. I hope you have a great week!

  12. I hope you get a chance to have a vacation soon!

  13. Jaspurr looks like a sweet kitty! Hope you can enjoy some time off soon.

  14. You have a very sweet kitty and lots of books on the go. I hope you can be able to take a vacation soon. Have a wonderful week ahead.

    • Thank you Jodie! She is most of the time 🙂 I can’t wait to take a vacation. Will do a staycation soon and then a longer one, probably in Oct. when it’s cooler. I hope your week is good also!

  15. Our cat Lizzy does the reach out with her paw but that is as far as it goes with me. She’ll jump up on my wife’s lap and lay down and purr but not me. She only acts affectionately with me when her food bowl is empty.

  16. Jasper is such a cutie!! Olivia always likes to hold my hand, it’s so cute.
    Take care and have a wonderful week!

    • I love it when Jaspurr does it, Boots on the other hand likes for you to rub/scratch her. She will lie down beside me, rub against my legs, and give me love bites that are too hard for me to like 🙂

  17. Urg! Those temperatures and humidity sound dreadfully draining! I hope you are able to stay inside, read a lot and keep the chores to a minimum. I’m a huge fan of staycations – especially as we live in a lovely part of the country where the beach is just 10 minutes up the road in one direction and we are on the edge of the South Downs in the other direction… Love the pic of Jaspurr and thank you for swinging by:)).

    • Our temp today is 89° but with the humidity it feels like 101°and it’s only 11:30 in the morning. It will steadily climb until our hottest time of the day which is 4:00pm.

      I LOVE the beach. it’s my favorite place to be!

      Jaspurr is a sweetie, most of the time 🙂
