What I’ve been up to:

It’s been a very quiet week again. I really can’t think of anything I did all week, except my usual chores and reading.

Turkey Drama! Two of our turkeys keep flying out of their yard, then they can’t figure out how to get back in, so they run over to the front of our house and squawk at our front window to let us know they need back in! Then we walk them back to the gate to let them back into their yard. Yesterday they flew out of their yard, and then the neighbor’s dog was loose and chased them up on top of the roof of our house, and they wouldn’t come down until my husband climbed up on the roof and chased them back to the ground. Then they ran back to their yard. I hope they decide that flying out of their yard isn’t a good idea anymore. Maybe they know that Thanksgiving is coming soon and they are ready to make their escape! We don’t eat the turkeys, they are pets. (but they don’t know that!)

Last week I read:

I read a lot again this week. As I said above, it’s been a quiet week at home. I enjoyed all these books. No duds this week!

Next week I hope to get to:

  1. Your turkeys sound like such funny birds.

    My brother has some pet chickens and ducks who like to follow him around while he builds stuff in his backyard. 🙂

  2. Too funny about the turkey drama. Hopefully things have been a bit calmer in that area this week! I’m loving The Great British Bake-Off though I still miss the original hosts. I think it’s mostly that I just don’t love the current combination of hosts. Enjoy your new books and your reading! Have a great week!

  3. Turkeys have never struck me as the brightest of birds 🙂
    I hope you like Meridian, Alone. I thought it was very moving. I’m looking forward to reading The Banned Bookshop.
    I get the “This video is unavailable in your region message” so I don’t know what your watching but I guess The Great British Baking Show? I love that show.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  4. It sounds like a fun week of reading. We raised two turkeys one year. They did a great job of taking care of the grasshoppers in our garden, but they are not the brightest of God’s creation. Their names were Thanksgiving and Christmas, and fortunately our two children were too young to know what that meant. They also did not witness their transition. 😉 Your turkey story is hilarious.

  5. I smiled reading about the turkeys lol Hopefully they stop getting out. I also have A Christmas Spirit in my TBR, glad you enjoyed it.
    Happy reading this week!

  6. I had to laugh about the turkey drama. LOL I like the look of the books you read this past week. I really want to read Signal Moon. I keep hearing good things about it. I look forward to reading your thoughts on The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks. I hope you have a great week!

  7. Omg I just had a laugh at your turkey drama! My daughter has a bunch of wild turkeys all over her town and they gobble by often at her house. The babies are so freaking cute!

    Fun fact, my maiden name is Rimmer. I always wonder if I’m somehow related to the author. It’s not a common name. I think are two authors with the last name. I should check into that someday.

  8. Wendy, you gave me such a laugh with those turkeys! I had visions of them knocking on the door with their feet or ringing the doorbell, lol. Have a great week!

  9. Joanna @ TheGeekishBrunette

    Glad you had no duds! I am looking forward to The Stand-Up Groomsman.

  10. That’s funny about the turkeys, but probably annoying for you. Our neighbor’s chickens end up in our yard and the cats love to stalk them, but they aren’t brave enough to do more than that, fortunately.
    Nice stack you finished off this week. I enjoyed Godmersham Park, too and I’ve got Signal Moon on my TBR pile. It looks good.

    Have another good week, Wendy!

  11. Oh, my! The turkeys are having quite the adventures. I know all their antics have to be frustrating but reading about it is pretty funny. Silly troublemakers! Hope you have a good week, Wendy!

  12. Holy Moly you got a lot of reading done! Guess the turkeys didn’t take ALL your time. Are they smart enough to ‘learn’ to stay in their fence? I got a good chuckle out of that story. Hope you have a terrific week and find time to curl up with one of those good books.

    • I have been tying to catch up on my ARCs so I’ve been reading more than usual. No, the Turkeys are not smart at all, but they are fun to watch!

  13. I used to love watching The Great British Baking show! Another great week of reading! I am reading some of the novellas I need to read for my challenges to make me feel productive, LOL! I finished one last night and I think I will finish another this evening 😉 Have a great week!

    • I hope so! But, turkeys are not known for their intelligence so I”m going to guess we’ll see them outside their yard again

    • Exactly, Lisa. If they were really trying to “be free” they wouldn’t come to the front door and demand that we let them back in!

  14. I needed to hear that hilarious turkey story so thanks for sharing it! Also, since I was recently horrified when a blogger I follow sent her unsuspecting pig off to the processor, I am really glad to hear that your turkeys are strictly pets.

  15. That is a great story about your turkeys! Maybe the funniest thing I’ve heard all week! Although not funny for you guys ha ha having to climb up on the roof! You’re right, maybe they’re nervous about thanksgiving, but sounds like they’re safe with you! 🙂

  16. I love the stories of your life on the farm! I have read some of these books and have others on my list to read. I’m not sure what TV baking show is in this clip because “the video is not available in my country”. I can never figure this out since much of US TV is broadcast here in Canada. I do enjoy TV baking shows though! Have a lovely week ahead!

    • Oh, I”m sorry it says that. It’s a Netflix clip for The Great British Baking Show. I’ll do better at captioning the videos in case you can’t see them again.

  17. I was thinking the same thing with Thanksgiving coming up – the turkeys are trying to escape! What was that turkey movie again?? Now I can’t remember….!!

    You really should start writing your own book Wendy!

    • They are not very smart! I think they like to roost on the fence, and then they either fall or jump on the wrong side of the fence and they don’t know how to get back inside!

  18. Janette

    Loved hearing about your turkeys. It sounds similar to our cat who escapes out of open windows and then demands to be let back in at the door! We’re enjoying baking shows too with The Great British Bake Off. Definitely an autumn/fall tradition. Have a great week.

    • Thank you, Janette. The turkeys are not the brightest. You’d think that if they get out, they could figure out how to fly back inside!

  19. Godmersham Park was interesting! A bit slow for my taste but I always wonder how I would have lived in that time with so few choices available to women.
