The Monthly Herd-- September-- What Happened?!

My word. Where did time go?! September was crazy around here. From family to herd to garden and doing new things.

So the highlights? Mom is doing great post knee surgery and getting back to normal life. The herd has been hanging in there. Everyone's fine just driving me out of my mind. lol

I started working for Instacart which has been an experience! I'm having my 3rd shift today. And I got a drone and promptly crashed him. He survived! I'm not a good drone mom.

Blog All About It: Crunch

This Month's Prompt!

Welp. I had planned to do a fall themed one for crunch since our leaves change color and get all crunchy. But the prompt is about a month too early. Oops!

So my 2nd favorite type of crunch. That's the very devil.

[memes] Oh the FALL TBR pile! Woo! Plus a tiny dang watermelon.

Um. Not sure what happened to the past week. It just flew by. I did have the USO and Food Pantry. The pantry was fine. The USO was not. We had someone join our group for the shift and I did not like her one single bit. One of the guys loved her and invited her back any time. Ugh! So I may be skipping USO shifts if she joins again.
Other than that. Hmm. I didn't do much reading. I just wasn't into it this week. I did get a drone! And promptly flew it into a wall, freaked out a cat and then lost it the next day for a good half hour when I went to the park. lol I can get it up and have it stay in the air somewhat where I want it now. So we'll see how it goes this coming week. lol

4.5 stars-- Trailblazer (Cowboys & Harvey Girls #1) by Anna Schmidt

Oh my! Anna Schmidt never fails at delivering a knock out read that simply captivates.
The Gist: Grace has taken a job out west working as a waitress at a railway restaurant. She wants a little adventure and desperately needs to earn money to help her family back home. She most certainly does not need to get distracted by a pretty cowboy with dreams of his own.

[meme] Ooop! I forgot a week! All the Things...

Yall I'm worn out. It was a long (two) weeks. Nothing bad just a little of everything. I skipped posting last week mainly because I was lazy and then when I finally got around to finishing the meme post it was time for this week's meme post. lol So they're combined. 

Mom is doing great! She's home and behaving post surgery. She said it's not as bad as expected and no worse than it was pre-surgery so that's good. Thank you for all the prayers for her. Lotus is home, too, but having a little struggle. She's 19 and mom is worried.

The food pantry was fine mostly. Nothing really notable. USO as well. Good to see the guys as usual.

Buy The Book-- New Book Releases & Sales!

Oh my! Lots of new (and recent) pretties!

4 stars-- Hard Sell (21 Wall Street #2) by Lauren Layne

Oh dear. Enemies to lovers, indeed!
The Gist: Matt and Sabrina? Well they hate each other. Probably. They sure fight like cats and dogs whenever they within arms distance of each other. But Matt has a problem. His reputation and his job are on the line after a wild trip to Vegas and he needs his image cleaned up. Namely...settling down with a good woman. Sabrina? Well she's the best "fixer" out there. Much to her dismay the only solution to this problem is for her to play the part of that "good woman".
