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 and happy Sunday. Not that anyone needs reminding but Christmas is getting closer and closer people. And then that’s it. Goodbye 2018.
I’m almost ready for Christmas but not quite. Aside from my Amazon Prime orders, some of the gifts I ordered online have yet to arrive so I’m trying not to have a heart attack. They are due to be here before the 24th so they need to get here soon.
Also, I’ve been doing this some evenings lately, enjoying a glass of wine with dinner and looking at the tree.
It has been a hectic workweek as usual with early mornings and late nights. It’s that time of the year that it is dark in the mornings when I leave for work and it is dark again in the evenings when I come home from work. I’m working on saying “No” more to staying late nights because I can feel myself getting burnt out and rundown. On a positive note, our office holiday party is this week plus our Secret Santa swap for my department too so that should be fun. The holiday party is catered food all day in the cafeteria/lounge so you pretty much eat breakfast and lunch all day buffet style. I like it because A. I stuff my face as much as I want by refilling throughout the day and bringing it back to my cubicle if I chose to and B. it takes place at work already so there’s no having to make time one night to go out during the busy holidays.
Onto bookish news, I don’t have anything in my mailbox this week. That feels weird but it’s okay. I was good too because I had another Christmas romance in my hands at the supermarket yesterday by the book section but I put it back and I walked away and I finished my grocery shopping. I did post a few reviews this past week which was good and I have two more reviews coming up this week.
On the blog this past week:
I’ve scheduled reviews for Starry Night: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber to post on Tuesday and Delicate Crochet: 23 Light and Pretty Designs for Shawls to post on Thursday.
I’m reading Mind Games (Kaely Quinn Profiler Book 1) by Nancy Mehl which is very good and I’m trying to finish it up this week for review. This one is especially intriguing because the FBI agent on the case has a father who was a serial killer. I’ve watched a few serial killer documentaries on the Discovery Channel and that’s terrifying and interesting to think about that some of these killers had families at home.
I’ve been trying to finish up a shawl in Ombre yarn that has been on my hook for too long now so hopefully I can finish that soon so I can wear it.
Those are my updates this week. How have you been? Are you ready for the holidays? Have a great week 🙂
I’ll close with a little Wham because George Michael.
