Java With Jo

Well life has certainly been busy this Fall for our household!  Things seem to be settling down to a sense of normalcy after we brought my daughter back to college earlier in the month.  Our puppy has even been doing better with her potty training...Thank You Lord!  Princess Isabella...AKA 'Izzy', is now 6 months old and she is such a little sweetie.  She is a morkie and I must admit that I really wasn't expecting her to have quite so much attitude.  I think that our older dog Scarlett is enjoying having the opportunity to put her in her place though.

Our ladies bowling season is underway and my scores have once again been all over the place.  I just started using my new ball last week so I'm hoping that will make a difference for me.  I can already tell how much less effort it takes when you use a ball that has been drilled specifically for you.

On the reading front, I am soooo looking forward to attending Club Read next month!  I get to meet some great authors and also some bloggers that I already feel that I have a friendship with.  It will be so nice to finally meet some of these ladies in person!  For some reason I felt that I have been reading more this year than last, but when I compared the 100+ Reading Challenge from last year to this year, I am at about the very same spot.  I just don't think that I am meant to read 100 books within one year at this time of my life.  That's ok...I will keep track of what I have read and that will be it!

I just realized that I am up to date on my scheduled reviews and blog tours!  Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of ARC's on my shelf at home that are awaiting reviews, but nothing scheduled!  After I am done with my current book club selection, I may have to wander to my book shelf and pick up a book just for kicks!  Doesn't that sound like fun?

Well that is what I have been up to.  It may not seem like much, but some weeks it seems that I only have one night without an obligation!  So what has been keeping you busy this Fall?

I'm really looking forward to Club Read too! It's going to be so much fun and just fly by!

What is a morkie? A Yorkie and what else?

Good luck with bowling! My husband is in a league and I had him buy a ball for Father's Day last year. Unfortunately, they didn't drill it correctly, and we just got it re-done. It really does make a difference.

Hope you enjoy the bowling season.

The Book club read sounds exciting.

I have been away from my blog only a week and I am trying to catch my tail :)

We are enjoying an Indian Summer here in the UK with temps better than we had in August!

Our pup is some sort of Yorkie mix and they do have personalities, don't they??? Glad the potty training is going better.
