What happened this week?
Phew this was a busy week! Lots of appointments, vet visit and work. And then I sliced into my finger with a knife while slicing veggies. And there was VAT stuff, my mom had a nice program to keep track of my VAT for next year. Let’s say I am happy this week is over.
It was a great week for Lola’s Blog Tours, there are two new cover reveals open for sign-up and a new book blitz. And I am there are more sign-ups coming soon. So if you have some empty spots on your blog in February that you want to fill, make sure to check them out 🙂
On monday I paid a visit to the doctor for a check-up for my ears, she concluded that everything looked fine. And I realized another issue I kept forgetting to ask about, namely that Pita somemtimes bites us and I knew I got my last tetanus shot long ago and needed a new one. So I asked my doctor if it was necessary to get a tetanus shot and while most of the wounds are pretty shallow, she decided it couldn’t hurt. So I went to get my tetanus shot after that. Things like that always make me a bit anxious and queesy, but I got my shot and will now be protected for another 15 years, yay! My arm kept feeling stiff and hurting for the next 4 days.
Tuesday we went to visit the vet for Pita. As the hospital were they did blood testing was clsoe by the vet, we stopped by that first to let me blood taken for the B12 and such testing. The registry was done pretty quick and we didn’t have to wait long for the blood testing. I felt really anxious, I think I almost crushed my boyfriend hand when the needle went into my arm, but I am happy to have that done now. The nurse was a nice lady that kept talking to me to keep my attention from the needle, I was really gratefull for that as it helps when people talk to me in moments like that so I can freak out less.
Then it was to the vet with Pita. We were a bit early so we spent some time chatting with a women with her son and cat in the waiting room. Her kid didn’t like Pita, lol, but the women told us she had rats in the past as well and agreed they were great pets. The vet’s visit was a bit mixed. The vet didn’t actually know were Pita was hurting, but he seemed concerned by her behavior and said to try some painkillers for a while and then after a week slowly build it down and see what happens. There are three main options, either the painkillers helpa dn the pain stays away, that’s the good option; the painkillers help, but the pain returns when we stop and that might mean she would keep using painkillers for the rest of her live; or the painkillers don’t help and only a scan could form a diagnose then and it might be even worse like something with her nervous system that’s wrong. The vet also checked out her lump and said it probably was a tumor, but he wanted to focus on the treating her pain first and then treat the tumor afterwards when that goes right. So we’ll see how that goes, so far Pita seems to react to the painkillers, but she still squeeks now and then and before she needs another dose of painkilled she looks worst.
Friday I called back about the blood test results and everything was fine, so I am happy about that.
I finally finished my second Coyer book! It was a long book, so I am happy to have finished it. It also counts as my first Reading Assignment book. And I already finished my third book, Fear’s Touch, which was a novella. And yesterday evening I finished my fourth book Walking Shadow.

A Moment to Love (A Whistle Stop Romance #1)

Welcome to Whistle Stop…where anything can and most likely will happen.
The notorious cowboy meets his match…
Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl–but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land–land that has been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go–even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and even if selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.
Alexis Greer had one mission–close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name. She just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, to appeal somehow to his head and heart–even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.

Within days, Chuck and Justin find themselves in 1900, riding a train to Texas, intent on preventing a distant uncle from being hanged for a crime he did not commit.

It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits…
Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.
Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her.
On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise…
