It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 30): 10/30/17
We spent much but not all of this weekend moving boxes out of the apartment. More and more we're able to living in our new home without wondering where ____________ is. The entirety of our kitchen is finally moved, though not unpacked. Now there are just a few odds and ends — mostly linens and toys to bring over.
Besides moving, we also got our annual flu shots. It was the last Saturday shot day and thankfully one that fit into everyone's schedule. We had to skip earlier ones because of Girl Scouts and Cross Country.
We also had our first barbecue in two years. Back in 2015 our condo complex changed insurance and the rules changed too. We were no longer allowed to barbecue on our balconies. Our house now has a specially built area and we can barbecue safely.

So nice to have a barbecue in your new place, I find I appreciate things more when they have been unavailable for a while. Enjoy all those great looking books.

The barbecue was a treat and probably the only one we'll have in a while. We're expecting some well needed rain.

Glad you got to enjoy the fun of barbecuing again!
Enjoy all your books this week.

It was nice to finally be able to barbecue again. It's nice to have a little more control over our space.

Ahh! Babymouse! But where is all the pink? Glad to hear that you are getting all of your things moved. Moving is such a chore. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

This particular Babymouse is a hybrid graphic novel — meaning it's mostly text with a few comic book interludes. There's no pink and even more shocking, Babymouse has matured some. It's actually a very good book.

Yay for grilling out! Hope the move is going smoothly.

The move is going smoothly. We should be completely out this coming weekend.

Congrats on your new home! I BBQ'd about two weeks ago, and I think that will be the last time because it's getting cooler outside. Fall is here! I have Dorothy Must Die, but I haven't read it yet, I picked it up last summer. Happy Halloween and happy reading!!!

It was probably our only BBQ for a while too as we're now heading into the rainy season. I finally finished Dorothy Must Die and now I'm working on a post about all the different Ozian dystopias.

Hooray for being almost done with the move. Though being able to barbecue again is also very nice. We are done BBQing until we get a warm snap/less snow, which likely won't happen until April or May, but we had lots over the summer.

We're expecting rain this week so it will probably be a while before we barbecue again.

We're done except for a little more vacuuming and turning in the keys!
