Lazy Hazy Saturday

Despite all my gripping about my ex we really are good friends.
We co-parent well for  the most part.
I do the raising he does the  playing lol.
Turns out that I need to thank his girlfriend for getting him to agree that I could get T immunized.
That is one mystery solved.
I was up early as usual and watered my plants outside before I settled in to read my emails (I have said it before but I get emails that notify me of blog posts on those blogs I follow) and coffee.
I watched the skies seeing clouds and getting a little bummed but by 9:30 I was out in the sun sitting and reading.
I am reading a free download called The Vegas Rift by David F. Gray.
It was listed under horror but sounded more fantasy/sci fi and intrigued me.
How there is a passage between our world and another that is a warped version of Vegas.
I started to read and the first bit was a bit of a struggle to get through.
I understood that the beginning was building up to the whole of it but until he reaches the end of the bridge having thus crossed the rift and he encounters people that I saw there was more to it and I needed to give it a little more time.
He being Sam Carr.
His younger brother whom he has gone to Vegas with had disappeared and he was/is determined to find him.
There are beautiful people.
There are illusions that cloak the reality that something was feeding off the souls of the others in the cavern.
The story has many twists and turns.
There is a beast that Sam releases.
I found myself at one point during their escape where I was holding my breath one hand pressed to my stomach as I wondered if in fact he was going to be successful.
I am still not finished.
Have approximately 40% of the book left to read.
Right now this novel is a solid 4 stars from me.
It could well be 5 stars I will keep you posted.
Around 1 the ex stopped by and convinced me to come to his place.
He has a redneck pool and I could spend more time with T.
Packed up the car with my fake wine, the watermelon I had purchased for him, some pop, two water bottles and my chair with kindle.
Laid on the floatie for a bit in the pool and then returned to sit in the sun.
And read.
We had a lot of conversations.
Different ones.
He still likes to hear himself talk and at one point I screamed at him to shut up as I was still talking.
Screamed is accurate as I recall it.
Think I startled him because he shut his mouth.
And T told him to stop being so rude.
They made roll kucken which is dough deep fried.
Not sweet.
Eaten with watermelon.
Also cheese sausages and salad for dinner.
It was a good day.
After getting home we were hit with a rain/thunderstorm.
The videos say it all.
Today I am working 12-6:30.
Not keen on the Sunday working but it is only one every 8 weeks so I cannot complain.
And I am off at 1:30 Thursday back on Monday.
I mean seriously that pretty much rocks.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

Dour to Delight

Our headlines these days are filled with accounts of Residential Schools.
Their architects.
The heinous crimes perpetrated on children.
And to make matter worse is the lack of co-operation in getting records released.
The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate ran about 47 per cent of Canada’s residential schools, including the one in Kamloops. The Oblates have refused to release their records to help identify the remains found and did not return a request for comment on the matter.

I was raised a roman catholic.
I fell away from the faith rather early around the time I was 14.
You know the time I ran away from home and all that fun stuff.
And as I grew older the more I learned the further away I went.
I can certainly discuss enough of the bible to make people uncomfortable who attempt to lecture/berate me according to their gospel.
When faced with irrefutable evidence the lack of accountability by the church is appalling.
And by church I am talking about the head of the Catholic Faith.
God’s Earthly Representative.
The Pope.
As the Father of The Roman Catholic Faith he is accountable for past and present sins.
And that he will not acknowledge/condone these vicious acts of eradication nor apologize
makes my stomach turn.
I am going to leave off with lightheartedness.
My boys are being little goofballs.
Thomas has this huge cuddle on for me as you can see in the picture above.
Enjoy my furbabies and have an awesome Friday all.
I will.
Was suppose to be off today and work tomorrow however the woman doing curb today is in quarantine.
Sucks for her 😞 bonus for me.😁
