The Weeklies ~ Week 28

108 Degrees in the sun on Thursday!

The Weekly Re-cap: I told you about my library – my Quiet Home Away From Home and the 4th of July.  I posted up my 1st poll – about your library use.  I helped a friend interpret her dreams about tornadoes and told you the history behind soap operas.  Last but certainly not least, I continued my interview series with an interview of my Mom 🙂

The Weekly Read: The Everything Blogging Book and Shift Your Habit.

The Weekly Music: EdXeno sang/rapped Vanilla Ice’s –  Ice Ice Baby during karaoke at Elda’s on Lark and it was awesome!

The Weekly Movie: We went to a pre-screened of the movie Cyrus.  It had it’s funny moments for sure, but I think they could have done more with the story to make it more interesting or humorous.  Not awesome but not bad either.
We also watched The Spy Next Door.  I always like Jackie Chan movies 🙂

Lucky

The Weekly Downer: A baby bunny falling into the pool and ending up in the skimmer 😦

The Weekly Good Karma: Michael rescuing the bunny out of the skimmer and us getting to spend and hour or two with ‘Lucky’ before we released him back into the wild.  Click the link – you know you want to!  The bunny was so cute!
