Marvelous Monday with Lexi!

Marvelous Monday with Lexi at On My Kindle Book Reviews, October 8th edition

I love fall. You know why I love fall? It's not so hot outside that I can go for long walks, the fallen leaves crinkle under my feet when I walk in them, and pumpkin is in season! I love pumpkin! It's my favorite food, which is why the hair around my mouth is orange, and it is good for me.

In case you didn't notice, I got a haircut. Mommy lost her job and couldn't afford to take me to visit Miss Ashley next week, so I got the "Mommy Special." She really is getting much better at grooming my face and head. As for the rest of me, well... it will grow out quickly.

Mommy was referred to a job development agency by Vocational Rehab and she has an appointment with them tomorrow. She really hopes that they can find a suitable employer for her otherwise, she says she'll have to try to find another crummy job with yet another sketchy employer. Her psychologist suggested that she get in touch with an agency here in town that offers housing to low-income people with long-term mental illnesses. She tried leaving a couple of voicemails last week and didn't hear back, so she also sent an email. Hopefully, they will call her back soon and give her information about their programs.

This week, Mommy says she has two book reviews to share. She will post one tomorrow (Tuesday) and another one on Thursday. She's also waiting on an ARC from an author before she starts reading another book, which is why she isn't sharing what she is currently reading. If she doesn't hear back from the author in a day or two, she'll start reading the next book on her list.

Up Next


Mommy is doing a good job of taking care of me. She even let me up into her bed yesterday to read with her and watch The Simpsons. I'm still not too sure about sitting on the bed with her though, but I love sitting on her lap in the living room. She's been talking to me more lately because Uncle Mike has been watching a lot of movies on his computer; she doesn't want to interrupt whatever downtime he gets from caring for his mother, but she needs someone to talk to sometimes.

It's time for me to go sit on her lap again, but I hope you have a marvelous Monday and an excellent week!

Hugs and licks,
