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….
Hello all. Ahhh…Spring is finally here. We still have chilly mornings and frost on my windshield but the weather has been getting a little bit milder as the day goes on and March is on its way out. We are supposed to reach the 60’s a few days this upcoming week.
I took an inadvertent blog break these past two weeks (shocker) but I’m playing catch up today. I am afraid to look in my Yahoo mailbox because well, last I checked it said 155 unread emails so then I just closed up the email app and went on about my day lol.
Work has been hectic like always and I had to put in a few extra early a.m. hours to avoid working late evenings. And we finally finished up sprucing up my youngest’s bedroom last week which turned out nicely. She’s got a renovated closet with shelving, a new bed and dresser and a fresh coat of paint, she chose cornflower blue. We hired someone for the closet and new paint but we put together the bed-frame and dresser from IKEA. By “we put together the bed-frame and dresser from IKEA” I mean my husband put these things together while I watched and handed him tools because that part of my brain, the assembling things while following instructions part, simply does not work. It’s a flaw that I have to live with. However, I was there for moral support and that’s just as important. 🙂
Onto my bookish updates….
Reading: I finished re-reading The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) so my review will be up soon.
I somehow started reading Gone Girl last week, even though I have review books to get to but I don’t regret it one bit. I love reading Gillian Flynn and I am enjoying this one. I’m more than halfway finished.
I am still working on my Coral Ombre Spring sweater. I actually made two separate sleeves for it last week and after sewing them on, I realized I didn’t like them and I took them off and unraveled the yarn, so it was back to the drawing board. I started over attaching the sleeves directly onto the sweater and am liking this much better. I’m going to give the sweater a quarter length sleeve then see what it will look like with ribbing for the trim. I also want to give the neckline ribbing too. Then I will be done! I will wear my Spring sweater and pour myself a glass of wine to celebrate it. This is the first sweater I crochet for myself.
That wraps up my updates for now, thank you for stopping in. What are you doing? Reading? Watching?
