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. Wow, this is the last Sunday in March. For it being a long month, that flew by. It has been another hectic work week but the end is in sight, I should be back to my regular schedule this upcoming week. Yay! Thanks all for your nice comments these last several weeks on that.
Can you believe we had another snow storm here this past week and another snow day? I know it is winter and we are supposed get snow but I am hoping that is the last of it for the season. Being home on Wednesday was nice though and I settled in and read a few hours on and off so that was good. I am over the cold and dreary early morning rides to work. This was Thursday morning. I want warmth and sunshine.
This past week on the blog I posted my thoughts on Louisiana Catch by Sweta Vikram which I thought was very good.
I’m currently re-reading Pet Sematary by Stephen King.
At over 500 pages this book will be the 3rd book I’ve read for March if I can finish it up by the end of this week, which I totally should. Funny enough, yesterday evening I settled onto my couch to read a few chapters after I put dinner in the oven. I was fully immersed reading as Louis Creed was up at the Indian burial ground when my daughter yelled from her bedroom “Ma! Is dinner ready?!!” Oh my god, I just about jumped out of my skin at the sudden noise because I was so into the book. I told her please no sudden movements or loud noises while I’m reading Stephen King. lol.
TV-wise, I’ve been watching The Men Who Built America: Frontiersman on the History channel. It is really good. I watched the last season which featured Rockefeller, JP Morgan and Carnegie among others during the Industrial Revolution, but I like the frontiersmen stories better. They feature Daniel Boone, Lewis and Clark and Davy Crockett as well as other historical figures and they also talk about the horrors the Native Americans went through as the United States continued to acquire territory.
This one is really worth a watch especially if you are into history. Leonardo DiCaprio was on the production team which I thought was pretty cool, I know he is an advocate for Native Americans rights. It is also fascinating to think about what unsettled America looked like during this time period.
Crochet-wise, I finished up my color pooled 1980’s blanket using Red Heart Neon Strips a few weeks back, this is the end result. I took photos of it on the snow of course 🙂
I also had wine at happy hour after work with my friend this past week. And that about wraps it up for me. How was your week? What are you reading/crafting/watching/doing? Enjoy your Sunday. xo
