Mid-week update for #BFCR3 #TeamLetsDoThis @CocoReads @Reecaspieces @Moony @imabusybee @CaroPi @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @LibrarianJen @britt_brooke @wanderinglynn

Several trips to the DIY store, especially to the shelves at the very back of the large shop, have made Monday and Tuesday a real success. Today is a little laid-back. Met some friends for breakfast, spent the afternoon reading, but there will be another trip to the DIY store later.

👇

julesG Slowly, but steadily my shower stall is taking shape. My cats are pretty relaxed about the whole thing. #GhostCat is even sleeping while there's hammering going on. 5d
squirrelbrain That‘s unusual for cats! Glad to hear bathroom is coming along nicely... 😘 5d
julesG @squirrelbrain I think she feels safe right behind the tin opener. 😁 5d

My reading buddy. Since she loves the heat, 38°C outside and 27°C inside don't faze her.

#ARC curtesy of the author. It's about an introvert with a YouTube channel that is supposed to help others overcome their introvertness and be prepared to approach their crush.
It's terribly funny and although I only wanted to read the first chapter before heading out I'm now 7 chapters in and decided to go out tomorrow morning when it's cooler.

Megabooks I‘m sorry about the heat wave!! 4w
julesG @Megabooks We need to get used to it. It'll probably be this hot every year from now on. Climate change is real! 4w
squirrelbrain Blah to the heat! 🥵 4w

julesG @wanderinglynn That she is. Yesterday I had the electricity meter lady here and the lady didn't want to leave again. Ghost had greeted her at the door and stolen her heart. 😀 4w
RaimeyGallant I love it when that happens with a book. 3w

When your youngest fur baby has just been desexed (going onto the 9th day with the ‘cone of shame‘) and can‘t be without you and needs to be reading Harry Potter also.

squirrelbrain Poor Puss! 😿 1mo
julesG Hope she can go without the cone soon. 1mo
Thewanderer92 @squirrelbrain I know! But two more days! 1mo

Thewanderer92 @julesG thankfully Arya only has two more days with it on! 1mo
julesG My cat managed to take it off. So she had to wear a cat onesie and I had to attach the cone to it. Felt like torchery. 1mo
Thewanderer92 @julesG really? Arya took it off the first night even with how lethargic she was. But since then we were able to adjust it and it was better. 1mo
julesG My cat is sooo tiny for a 2 year old (meanwhile), the smallest size cone was still roomy enough for her to wriggle free 1mo
julesG And we had a tough 3 months after her operation. She had severe wound infection. I really feared for her life when she withdrew from all of us, hid in her igloo and wouldn't come out. 1mo
Thewanderer92 @julesG that sounds horrific 😥 how is she now? 1mo
julesG She's fine. The operation was last year in January. She was ill till April. Then I had to go to rehab for 4 weeks. It was a tough time but she's right as rain now. But, of course, the time had an impact on her. She used to sleep on my chest, now I can be happy when she sleeps next to my pillow. But, she's still as cuddly and tactile as she used to be. Check out some of my posts about my #GhostCat. 😉 1mo
Thewanderer92 That‘s so good to hear. I‘m glad she had a quick recovery! 1mo
Hufflepuffle Hope your kitty feels better soon!! Mine has been in for a procedure today after inhaling a blade of grass! Lots of TLC called for when he gets home 1mo

It's the #walkathon day and I'm glad i did not sign up for it. Sorry @Clwojick and @CoverToCoverGirl

I could get up (maybe should, it's 9.15 am), but #GhostCat has just decided to fall asleep on me. And I have books. And the kids are still sleeping. And #ShadowCat is snoring on the yellow armchair.

😁😁

Sarah83 Feeling better today? 1mo
julesG @Clwojick Fingers crossed! 1mo
julesG @Sarah83 Not much. Some problems have turned into other problems. Might have a cold due to hay-fever and the weather changes. 😵😵😵 1mo
julesG @CocoReads Thanks! 1mo
CoverToCoverGirl That‘ll be me tomorrow! 😊 1mo
julesG @CoverToCoverGirl With ice-cream! @Clwojick Don't forget to get ice-cream. 😁 1mo
Hoopiefoot I love the color of that blanket! 1mo
Sarah83 @julesG im Deutschen würde man jetzt sagen 'einmal alles bitte' 🤢 1mo
Reecaspieces Stay in bed!!! Enjoy! 1mo
wanderinglynn I don‘t blame you. That looks like a comfy space & I love the colors. Plus, you can‘t disturb the kitty cats! 😹😉 1mo

It's hot outside. Unfortunately, it's very warm inside too. Where does Madame #GhostCat decide to sleep? I've already placed her onto the sofa next to me twice. She glares at me and climbs back onto my lap. 😼

This ARC is funny. I'm reviewing it for BookSirens.

#catsoflitsy

jenniferw88 At least your cat sits on you! My #gingerbrat doesn't! 2mo
julesG @jenniferw88 Only Ghost sits, sleeps, pukes on me. #ShadowCat might touch me with one paw that's close enough for him 2mo

Leftcoastzen I had a kitty that loved laundry, didn‘t matter if it was the dirty sort pile or warm and neatly folded.😻 2mo
julesG @Leftcoastzen My sweet kitty only likes the laundry tub. She's peed into it several times already. It's her way of telling me she doesn't like the litter. 😁 2mo
GingerAntics Aww someone is comfy. 2mo

I sat down for two minutes. Now I'm "Ghostlocked" and no book in reach.

GingerAntics Focus cat!!! There must be a book. 3mo
julesG @GingerAntics She doesn't give a flying F... But I had to get up after half an hour. Drinking 3 litres of water plus tea and coffee has its advantages. 😉 3mo

May stats: 28 books finished - 14 ARCs, 8 Audiobooks

#GhostCat was too warm in the sun so she settled between my feet, while I did the tally.

Tagged book is my favourite read for the month.

TrishB Cool stats 👍🏻 3mo
GatheringBooks wow! awesome stats! 3mo
JazzFeathers I'm so envious. I barely read 4 books... 3mo

julesG @JazzFeathers Lots of ARCs, a lot of them DIY/knitting/painting/... books. 😉. Also, you'll have a better month, soon. And, don't forget, I'm retired for health reasons, do only my kids keep me from reading. 3mo
Dolly What a beautiful 🐱. 😍 3mo
CoverToCoverGirl You crushed it! Retired or not that‘s a lot of books! 👍👏👏 3mo
