Marvelous Monday with Lexi: May 13th Edition!

Hello humans, another marvelous Monday is here! What have you been up to this week?

I have been sending Mommy off to work, watching "Angel" with Mommy, receiving lots of love from the other tenants in our apartment complex, and hanging out with Uncle Mike in the mornings.

Mommy has been through a lot this past week; she had an appointment with Social Security on Wednesday and she's been dealing with a situation involving another tenant. What started out as a person asking for a couple of cigarettes turned into a really creepy situation when he "just so happened" to be riding the elevator at the same time she was, or be in the lobby when Mommy took me for my morning walk at around 5:30. Mommy ended up reporting him to one of the Resident Advisors who then told him to leave her alone. 

Even though Mommy's safety has been assured and the RA told her to let him know if the creepy tenant gave her any more trouble, the damage has been done. The damage isn't permanent but Mommy is going to feel anxious whenever she has to take me outside for a while. Even then, it's going to take Mommy a long time to let her guard down. It's a shame because Mommy is working so hard to make positive changes and when something like this happens, Mommy begins to doubt the positive things in her life.

Currently Reading

Bad news aside, Mommy has started taking some time out each day to read a bit more. As such, she's almost finished with this book and will be on to the next book in no time.

Add 'Touch of Smoke' by Karissa Laurel to Goodreads!
Three years ago, Rikki Albemarle watched her best friend die at the hands of a supernatural evil. Certain she was slated to be the next victim, Rikki fled her small Smoky Mountain hometown, vowing to never come back. Plagued by nightmares and knowing she's the only one who believes Mina's death was no accident, Rikki returns with hopes of finding answers and holding the killer accountable.

Rikki is convinced the key to unlocking the secret of Mina's death lies with Owen Amir, the alluring young army vet who once claimed her heart. But the deeper Rikki digs into Owen's past, the more she's torn between the urgings of her heart and her memories of him on the night Mina died.

After falling further into the rabbit hole, Rikki lands at the feet of an ancient and powerful evil determined to finish what it started years before. To survive, she'll have to make a decision: believe Owen is the monster she always feared he might be or trust him enough to stay and fight for a second chance at love.
