The Summer of M&S – The Summer Reading List

We have this little sort of Book Club with The Roomie.   Mostly she reads to us and we comment on what she’s reading.  Right now she is reading”Nightshift” by the master of horror literature, Mr. Stephen King.

She says she can only read this book during daylight hours.  I totally get that!  This book is a collection of short stories written by Stephen King over the years and published as a book.  It reminded us all of his other collection “Different Seasons”

The Roomie’s night time book is Philip Roth’s “The Plot Against America”.

I’m pretty sure this story is just as scary as Night Shift!

She also informed us that her vacation read this year is also a Stephen King thriller…IT!  So no sleeping during holiday either, lol.

Oh Hey…It’s Raining…AGAIN!

So we had one day rain free in the last 10 days.  The Roomie said she doesn’t want to hear the word drought anytime this summer, lol.

We are ready for some not so humid and wet weather.   Personally, Gnomes and Trolls really don’t mind the rain 🙂

Happy Royal Almost Wedding Day!

In honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markel’s upcoming wedding we decided to have fun with Photo Booth accessories.  Well, the Roomie’s photo booth accessories, lol.

It’s been fun and we all will gather around the TV tomorrow to watch the nuptials.

Except Mr. Nigel Murray and Alistair.  Being British themselves they could care less, lol.

It will be fun.  The Roomie hasn’t missed a Royal Wedding since Diana/Charles in the 80’s, lol.

Call Noah…It’s Been Raining…A LOT!

It’s been raining for the past two days and it’s looking not to stop anytime soon.  Well okay, if you get technical, they call for Sunday to be the last day.  Sure…take the drama out of my post!   Just kidding.

Not to worry, the Gnomes are a hearty breed.  The Roomie is too.  She likes the rain better than the sunshine.  Bjorn says it’s because she prefers to be pasty not rosy.

Anyway, Caleb, Hubert, Chipper and me went to the forest for a little communing with nature.  I got to do some bird watching while the others played in the stream.

It was a perfect afternoon of getting rained on, beautiful flora and fauna and just being outside 🙂

Chipper Sings Stormy Weather

The skies were angry and windy last night.  Thank goodness The Roomie went and voted right after work.  Although, a rainstorm didn’t stop her from voting last time when it poured rain.  The sky looked amazing at times.

The rains were heavy and our street looked like a river for about an hour.  We didn’t lose power so the whole group was excited by that because there was a Chopped Marathon on the Food Network!

Homie used to live outside so this storm was nothing compared to some of the Nor’Easters he had to live through.  He thought it was pretty too.  At least the humidity went away and cooler temperatures made it easier to sleep 🙂

Don’t Forget To Vote!

The Roomie is very much into voting.  She says it’s a treasure that is squandered by so many because they don’t realize it’s real value.

So to support her message we are passing along the message…

Your Vote Counts!

Mr. Nigel Murray commented his vote doesn’t count because he’s not American.

Hey you there….go Vote!

Maybe not here in the USA but your vote counts in the UK!  I think he’s just still bitter he wasn’t invited to Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markel!
