The Sunday

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! As I type this, it is a glorious fall (by Florida standards) morning, with temperatures yesterday and today in the 80’s. My windows have been open all weekend and this makes me very excited. THIS weather is why I am happy to be living in Florida!

You may have noticed my absence from the blog over the past week and a half or so. Well, the week before last I was actually on vacation – hubby and I took a cruise to the Bahamas and Grand Turk, which was super fun and exactly what I needed. I managed to get a few posts scheduled that week, but once I returned home for whatever reason my blogging sort of went out the window. I just was not motivated to write! Or read for that matter, actually. I think the fall TV shows have just captured my interest instead. But fear not, I’m back in the reading/writing place and should have a couple of reviews for you this week.

Now, getting to the title of this past – last night hubby and I did something drastic. We adopted a puppy! It was kind of a random decision, honestly – we’d been talking about getting a dog for a while, but not seriously, and the other night one of his friends had a dog that needed a home. Well that dog ended up getting another family, but it got us talking and looking at dogs for adoption online. When we saw this cute little face we had to meet her right away. So yesterday, after work, we went to look at her and of course we fell in love immediately! After a few hours of owning her, we settled on a name – Charlotte – and now we have a new addition to our family. 🙂 As you might know, I have three cats already, and I have to say they’re not thrilled with having Charlotte around. But they’ll get over it eventually. Here are a couple of pictures we took last night.

As you can see, she is adorable!

As for today, we are going to take Charlotte to a farmer’s market and breakfast outdoors (very trendy/yuppie of me, I know), then I plan to read and blog the rest of the day. After a huge reading slump, I finished reading The Human Bobby by Gabe Rotter yesterday and what a book! It definitely inspired me to get back on the reading wagon.

What are you up to this Sunday?
