Blah. The cats and I have had a blah week. I could blame Louise Penny and say I just can't get anything after reading A Great Reckoning. Well, that part's true about books. I actually read a Christmas book on Wednesday night, but I certainly am not reviewing it in April. I scheduled that review to run in November. I just can't get into anything.

It's just been that sort of week all around. Nothing to feel sorry for us about, just little irritations such as the problem with a haircut. I wanted to get that done Friday after work instead of Saturday morning. Sure, if I wanted to wait an hour and a half for an appointment. No, I'll get it cut on Saturday. It's just little things that all add up, and I don't feel like reading a thing.

Don't worry. I'm going to work on my book chat today. I'll reread Louise's book, and I have another review already scheduled for this coming week. And, it's almost time for October Treasures in My Closet. Lots of things coming up. Just nothing worth talking about from the end of the week.

Enjoy your weekend. Find a good book to read or listen to. The cats and I will get past the blahs.

Two words: short stories.

When I can't get into a book I'll just get by on stories for a while.

Fortunately, I'm not having that problem at the moment, as I'm more than halfway through Peter Robinson's nasty but very good Alan Banks book, WHEN THE MUSIC'S OVER.

Just take it easy. It will pass. My problem is that this summer's heat is still hanging on. Usually by this time in August we're getting a hint of cooler weather, but it was 90 and humid yesterday.

I echo what Jeffrey said. Sorry you had a bad week. I left after I told I would have to wait 45 minutes at one place yesterday. The next day, I got in and out in 30 minutes. Hope that the weekend goes well for you.

Got in & out in 20 minutes this morning, Carol. Actually, I started a book I've had on my TBR pile, and a friend read it before I did. I'm liking it so far. Thanks for the advice, though, about short stories, Jeff & Carol!

The worst part about Katie Cat getting the blahs is that she sleeps all day and then decides to start meowing to get me up about 3 a.m. the next morning. Then I get the blahs and have to take a long nap.

Thanks, everyone! Taking the hugs.
