I'm reading a book and other things.

My New Year's Resolution or goal this year was to read a book.  Er books.  Get me back into the habit of reading.  So I'm really proud to report that I'm reading a book right now.  It's one of those conspiracy spy thriller books.  I don't where I got the book, but I'm guessing that I picked it up on one of the library book sales last year.  Unfortunately the book is book #5 in a series of 8 (the #8 is being released this June).  How do I know that?  I googled/wiki'd the book and found out that it's book #5.  I was quite intrigued because the characters weren't being introduced as properly.  It's because they've been introduced in previous books.  So what I did was to jot down the rest of the books in the series.  In the meantime I'd finish this book and work my way into all the books from book #1. Hopefully, I'd get the gist of the series from book #5.

Some other things that's on my mind and what I've done lately:
  • Loving the rainy weather after a very dry winter.
  • Been enjoying my tv viewing lately.  Many of my shows will be ending soon, either series finale or season finale.
  • A dear lady that I mentioned in the past post that recovered from a coma had died yesterday.  I was really shocked to hear about her passing via email from my priest. God bless her soul.  Rest in Peace Judy.
  • Went plant shopping on Saturday in my raincoat and umbrella.  We are crazy we know, shopping for plants in a downpour.  We were the only ones looking at plants in one nursery, but at the Cactus Jungle (where we spent $50, expensive) there was another couple crazy just like us braving the inclement weather to look at and buy cactus/cacti.
  • Had a lovely time going to Happy Hour at Chevy's after the plant shopping activity.  We picked up a friend who lives near Chevy's and we had a fun time talking, eating and drinking.  And yes I had two margaritas. I was bad!
  • I overate on Sunday too.  Mom, my two brothers and their wives and my hubby and I went to the casino for mom's early b/day celebration.  She wanted to go.  We usually take her once a year, usually on or near her b/day.  We hit the buffet and while I was disciplined at what and how much I put into my plate/s I knew I overate just the same.  
  • Still doesn't have plans for our wedding anniversary in May. 
  • I don't want to get FB timeline, I really don't.
  • To see (Hunger Games) or not to see, I don't know the answer to that question.
  • I really need new shoes that would be perfect for both spring and summer.
  • I've watched PRIDE AND PREJUDICE 4x in the last 2 weeks.
  • Apparently I've got allergies, the doctors can't just figure out what it is I'm allergic to.
