This is how I’m going to update you on things happening here in my neck of the woods in this segment called Life This Week. Also, I’ll let you know what’s going on with Ivy along with photos of her.
I want to show you a photo of my two granddogs; Kendra’s dogs. They are so precious.
She put this photo on Facebook the other day, and I thought: my readers just have to see these cute critters!
On the left is Lulu, and on the right is Thor. They always greet me with enthusiasm. They know I love them and will give them lots of attention.
What I’ve Read & Am Currently Reading:
I finished reading “The First Day Of Spring by Nancy Tucker. One of you mentioned it in a comment and I ordered it. It’s a very deep look at the philosophical question: is behavior nature or nurture?
The phrase “nature versus nurture” was first coined in the mid-1800s by the English Victorian polymath Francis Galton in a discussion about the influence of heredity and environment.
I’m now reading “Other People’s Houses” by Abbi Waxman. It is much lighter and quite funny. I know Kasi, my youngest, will enjoy it once I’m finished reading it.
What I’m Watching On TV This Week:
I finished watching all the seasons of Homeland, and hated to see it end.
Then I watched the last season of Line Of Duty on Britbox. And now I’m watching Traces on Britbox. I love British TV.
Life According To Ivy:
Ivy has new toys I ordered for her from Etsy. She just loves these spinners.
There were 3 to a package and they are made of natural rabbit fur and rooster feathers, which somehow struck me as amusing. One package was $12.50.
Ivy likes to put her spinners in the water bowl. Go figure.
Yes, I know they are strange-looking. You can’t account for a cat’s taste though.
Ivy keeps herself very clean. She often goes about the task of cleaning herself and then she takes a nap. I guess it takes a lot out of her.
A strange thing happened. A year ago I ordered and paid for a subscription to Cottages & Bungalows magazine. But I never got it.
Then a few days ago it just showed up. Along with a notice that if I didn’t want an interruption of the magazine subscription, I needed to pay for the next year.
Well of course I wasn’t doing that because for whatever reason I’d never received it.
So I found a number to call them (which I couldn’t locate last year) and informed them of what had occurred. They indicated that according to their records they had sent it, but somehow the post office didn’t send it on to me.
They’re reinstating my subscription for a year. I love this magazine.
I signed up for a DashPass, which is through the DoorDash delivery service.
DashPass offers unlimited free delivery for any order over $12. A DashPass subscription normally costs $9.99 per month.
DashPass subscribers save an average of $4-5 per eligible order. To order, you check the restaurant or store in your area (look for the checkmark) and see if it is listed.
I’ve saved more than that already in 3 orders. For me, I saved $6 to nearly $9 per order this past week.
They also have coupons. I saved an extra 20% off my second order just with the coupon.
I’m trying this because I’m mostly staying in these days.
NOTE: Tomorrow someone will be working on my blog. It will be under construction while she’s working on it.
See you Wednesday with a fall decorating post.
