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…
Good morning blogland, can you believe the first week in October is already over? I hope you are all doing well. I feel like I almost don’t even know what to talk about this morning. These are crazy, crazy times we are living in. I’ve stopped watching the news the past few days, I can’t bear to look anymore.
Well, it’s a rainy Sunday here in NJ and I’ll be doing some blog hopping this morning before getting back to my current read, which is perfect for this time of year. It’s actually a re-read for me and I’m almost finished.
I went to the the bookstore last weekend and my daughter grabbed a copy of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. It’s a collection of poetry.
We both read it, my thoughts on it will be up in a few days. While there I grabbed the latest Tessa Dare, The Duchess Deal for my shelves as well. These copies of Shakespeare were tempting to add to my collection of pretty books too, but I controlled myself. Aren’t they very 1960’s vintage looking? I like it.
Also, we went to Liberty Island a few weekends ago. It was a gorgeous day. It’s been several years since we last went, and I enjoy everything about going there. The ferry ride, the view, the way Lady Liberty kind of appears while you are on the boat getting to the island. There’s so much history there, we didn’t stop at Ellis Island this time around though. We had lunch on Liberty Island, the sun was shining and we hung out by the water enjoying the view. I’ll close with a few pics that I took with my Canon.
Approaching the island from the ferry. Everyone gets excited when you see the statue getting closer.
“Although you cannot see Lady Liberty’s feet clearly she is in fact standing among a broken shackle and chains, with her right foot raised, depicting her moving forward away from oppression and slavery.”–read more about the Statue of Liberty here.
This was the view while we were enjoying our lunch outside. That is where the boats dock to take visitors on and off the island.
The view of the city and Tower One from the ferry.
People were hanging out on the water on boats and this sailboat caught my eye. Looks like fun doesn’t it?
Well, that’s all for now. I hope you enjoy your weekend. It’s an extended one here with Monday off for Columbus Day so more reading/crocheting time for me. 🙂 What are you up to?
