Since my last update:
I actually managed to get some reading time this week. I got my new contacts on Monday and it’s so nice to be able to read comfortably for more than just a few minutes again.
I read a couple of graphic novels this week. The Runaways Vol. 2: Teenage Wasteland is the second in that series and the story is taking off. I’m glad I've got volume 3 out from the library and hope to get to that soon.
I also read the 6 volume in the Y: The Last Man series. I've got 4 left in this series and it’s been an interesting ride so far. In the story it’s been a couple of years since a sudden and mysterious plague killed all the male mammals except for one young man and his pet Capuchin monkey.
Both of these series are written by Brian K. Vaughan and I've enjoyed every one of his graphic novels that I've read so far.
I started reading Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian. This my last book for the What’s in a Name Challenge for this year. It’s good so far. It takes place in the final days of World War II as people are heading west across the remnants of Hitler’s expanded Germany to flee the advancing Russian army.
On audio I’m listening to Children of the Storm by Elizabeth Peters. It picked up a couple of years after the previous book and after World War I. Missing antiquities, family dynamics, adventure, fun and parasols. I love this series.
Other than books and reading:
It’s been sunny and cold here this week resulting in pretty sunrises and sunsets. The birds have been busy at our bird feeders and yesterday while I was on the treadmill I saw a hummingbird buzzing around the tree in the backyard and eating at the feeder we have there. Looks like I need to keep that hummingbird feeder filled all winter.

Monday’s prompt for my daily photo challenge was mirror. I was pretty happy with how this turned out.
Sunrise at Waterfront Park Wednesday morning
There are a few trees still hanging on to their leaves and they just light up when the sun hits them.
And for this week’s Abby Antics:
She wasn't going to let a little thing like not enough room on the back of the chair get in her way. She can nap with her front half and back half on two different pieces of furniture.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
