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…
Merry Merry everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Otis says Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. That little holiday hat looks like I photo-shopped it on him, but he’s actually wearing it. He stays perfectly still when I put it on..lol. Like he knows mom is a little crazy but that’s life. 🙂
It has been a hectic week here, next year I will save some vacation time for this time of the year, it is so needed. We had snow this week and although it is pretty to look at, the timing was impeccable. It both snowed during my morning work commute and during my drive home this week bumping my 45 minute drive to about one hour.
This past Friday night I went to see the new Star Wars movie with my daughter. We enjoyed it, the early showings were sold out so we ended up getting tickets to the last show and didn’t get home until after 1 a.m. It was worth it.
Yesterday I had hoped to run a few errands and get my groceries done and bake Christmas cookies, yes I know I was aiming high lol. I don’t know if it’s from all the running around this week, but I woke up with a migraine that left me most of the day in bed, so nothing was accomplished. Everything happens for a reason though and my body was definitely telling me I needed to rest. I hope to head out to the grocery store later on today.
Thankfully my Christmas shopping is done since I did it early and mostly online and we put the tree up last week so it has really been work that has been draining me lately. There’s construction going on at our building and they moved us to a different section for now and it’s been a stressful couple of weeks. I work in a very busy department but I have some great co-workers and that lightens up the workday and it makes all the difference.
Speaking of online shopping, shout out to Maurices. I told hubby I wanted new boots for Christmas. The way we work it is I pick some things out and he pays, this way I get exactly what I want, which were these. They fit perfectly and arrived in time and are under the tree already. Thank you boo 🙂
Bookwise, I am reading A Christmas Promise by Mary Balogh. I’ve had this one since last Christmas and I can only read holiday books during the season so I figured I’d get to it now.
I’ve got some qualms with the hero, but he’s redeeming himself as the story goes along so overall it is turning out to be a nice holiday read. I also have two more Christmas books to get to after this one, No One Has Sex on Christmas Day and Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery.
That about covers it for now. How are your holidays coming along? What are you reading? Enjoy your week xo
