The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Happy Sunday everyone, September is here and I am ready for Autumn. It’s a rainy one in Jersey and I plan on reading and crocheting in between a few household chores today.
On a sad note, I can’t even look at the news anymore concerning the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey . Not that it should take a natural disaster to do it, but it really makes you stop and appreciate what you have and remember to live in the moment, because it can all be gone in an instant.
Crochet-wise, I went to the craft store last night and picked up two skeins of yarn for a hat and infinity scarf set. This sign says it all.
They have a Labor Day weekend sale going on so I bought Read Heart With Love in pink and black and it is so soft. I think I’ll trim the black infinity scarf with pink then make the hat pink and trim it with black.
Bookwise, I started Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman last night and it’s great already. The last time I read Gaiman was years ago with Stardust. He has a way of sweeping you away with his writing. I hope to spend the day dipping in and out of these short stories. It’s a three day weekend so more reading time.
I had a nice reading week and found a new favorite book with The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. The movie is a favorite and I’ve been meaning to read the book for a while. Each are different but I was not disappointed. I’ll have my review up in a few days.
I’ll end with beach pictures from last weekend. My daughter and I spent the day down the shore. We just lounged on the beach, hung out on the boardwalk and enjoyed the day. The weather was really nice and I almost dozed off laying out on the beach around 5:00 pm as it started too cool off, with the nice breeze and the sounds of the waves.
We got ice-cream at a favorite spot on the boardwalk in the evening and we also had our favorite cheesey fries. It’s tradition.
What are you doing this weekend? What are you reading?
Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
