I am joining with Carole and friends today to share a few things with you today!
The volume of rain has me singing this song from the Winnie the Pooh movie. Thankfully we have not yet had any of the flooding that some of those in Western PA have. Yesterday my phone received one alert after another with a multitude of weather warmings. Unbelievably, there is more rain in the forecast for today…
HAIL! WINDS! FLOODING! EVEN A TORNADO. We’ve seen it all so far this week… and it’s not over yet. Complete weather coverage here: https://t.co/nIJc37Hmuu #pawx #Pennsylvania #Weather pic.twitter.com/6AII99uwbF

Sadly, it does not surprise me that few people have read the Mueller Report. However, I am righteously angry that most of the members of congress have not read it…I have read it – every.single.page. I do not have a law degree and I had no problem understanding it. Yes, there are some parts that have been redacted, but that does not impact the understanding of the report. So, Dear America – be like Justin Amash and read the damned report! (And, if you don’t want to read the report his twitter feed is a virtual CliffsNotes™)
Finally, a good problem to have: It is always a risk to put things on hold at the library, because if they all become available at once – you have a flood of books to read. That happened to me this week! I have 9 books to read in 21 days, most of which I have been waiting for a very long time, so wish me luck! Lol
What about you? What’s on your list today?
I hope you don’t experience any literal floods, but good luck with your flood of books! It seems like it’s always feast or famine, but if anyone can manage nine books in 21 days, it’s you!
This weather!!! So awful…..
As Bonny said, if anyone can read 9 books in 21 days, it’s you! I hope they are all wonderful – enjoy!!
The rain can definitely go away! We don’t tend to get floods near us, but we definitely had some big puddles in the yard yesterday, and as I walk to work, I’m not a big fan of getting soaked on my commute!
Good luck with all the reading! I am so paranoid about that happening to me that I only have a few holds at a time and usually try to space them out so that the holds come up in a reasonable time frame.
We don’t have the severe weather you do but we have had the wettest spring (March, April, May) we have ever had. More rain than all of last year! Next week they say summer is truly arriving (I HOPE). I will be staying home for the next two or more months, healing is my main purpose. It will also allow me more reading time.
Good luck with your reading, and your weather! Stay safe.
Sure hope your weather improves soon! Good luck with all those holds! Here I thought two at a time was crazy!
In my TN area we had a overly wet beginning of the year, spring was average, and now we’re getting drought-y. I believe our water table in general is lower as the creek has lessened in the 16 years we’ve been in rural America. Gradually we have decreased plants and veggies in the garden and try to keep the most drought-tolerant.
But, the signs all point to hot-hot summer, sigh.
Books, yes, library holds are difficult to manage at times. Sometimes I put my holds on hold to a later date/or “suspend” the date till I restart. Feast or famine – yep.
The Mueller report – yep, signs are there for a hot-hot summer+fall+winter, sigh.
We’ve had rain and rain and more rain but nothing scary or serious, thank goodness. I have not read the Mueller report but we do have it available at the library. And lots of books – that’s a good problem!
good luck on the mighty nine books to read! You can do it. The rain is relentless and annoying. Frodo is afraid of thunderstorms (new thing from an old dog) so it’s more stressful for me.. Your number two is in a world that is upside down. Nothing makes sense.
I cannot wait to hear what the 9 books are.
I’m planning to read The Report when I’m on summer break.
Why do all of the holds always come in at the same time?! I get so overwhelmed when that happens. Good luck!
For quite a while I’d been thinking that we were so close to the 2020 election and impeachment seemed like a bad political strategy – it’s just the fight he wants. But now? I’m leaning more towards at least talking about the grounds for impeachment… The more that congress can shine a light on what’s in that report, the better. But honestly I’ve become so cynical that I believe it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to about 30% of the country. I’m so disgusted with it all!
But I’m glad that you haven’t had any flooding and I’m hoping for some sunshine headed your way!
I suppose having too much to read is a good problem to have! 🙂
And, I was thinking along the same lines as you about impeachment and then I read the Mueller Report and have watched the continued obstruction. I think doing nothing will be a very bad choice.
We’ve had a lot of rain, but not that kind of “a lot of rain.” Hang in there, Kat. I always have to laugh when All The Holds come through at the same time at the library — because I don’t want to read that fast! I usually pick my favorites, renew what I can, and put holds back on for the rest. Good luck!
I hope you’re reading this very minute, with all those holds! Makes me think of the times my family thinks they’re being nice by picking up my holds for me when they run into the library (they all know my library card #, strange but true). They don’t quite get the ‘timing’ and ‘spacing’ of picking up those holds…and I have to try REAL hard to grin through my clenched teeth! Enjoy!
A flood of books is a fun problem, for sure – hoping a few of them work themselves into a square on your Bingo card! I have not read the Mueller report, but my favorite podcasting girls Beth and Sarah did. Their episode was great and I think you might enjoy it even more having read the report!
