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…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
July is my favorite summer month because summer is in full swing. I have more energy during this time of the year and with the longer days I feel like I still have time after work to enjoy the day. I am so NOT a winter person, the cold and dreary weather is just ugh and zaps me of my energy and the pretty snowfalls get old real quick. We are in the middle of a heat wave here these few days with the temps expected to hit 100 today and I am keeping cool inside with the air conditioning. And with July 4th this Wednesday it makes it a shorter four-day work week so it will be nice to have a mid-week break.
Reading-wise, I swear reviews are coming soon. I aimed to finish up Eight Goodbyes by Christine Brae earlier this past week but it didn’t happen. I did finish reading it yesterday though so I will have my thoughts up this week.
Up next will be The Haunting of Mount Cod: A Laura Boxford Mystery by Nicky Stratton for a July post as well.

Also to arrive this week was yarn. I started my weekend of with a trip to the yarn store Friday evening. I was good, I controlled myself and just bought two skeins that were on sale.
I grabbed two balls of Super Saver Ombré in Spearmint which is delicious to look at and touch. I went to the store looking for the new RedHeart yarn that is made especially for color pooling but they don’t carry it yet. Between the yarn and the free patterns, RedHeart is definitely a favorite. I have already been thinking about what crochet project and which book to bring along on vacation with me. My Aunt’s star blanket is finished and will be in the mail this week.
We rented Get Out this past week. It was good and definitely a film you can discuss afterwards since there is a crazy plot twist.
Last but not least, we had Mexican food and margaritas last night with my SIL and her husband and it was a great evening. Hmmm the frozen margaritas at this place are my favorite and having good company and conversation is wonderful. I like to order the sizzling steak fajitas and they don’t disappoint.
That covers my weekly updates. What are you up to this week? What are your summer plans?
