Sunday Post/Mailbox Monday 11/17/19: Reading, Watching Etc.

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….

Happy Sunday. Wow, it’s turned so cold already. This week consisted of icy morning temps in the 20’s and a frosty car with a few warmer temps during the daytime to tease us. All that means is that Winter will soon be here.

I had a busy week with work being hectic and having to work overtime so I didn’t get too much reading done these last two weeks but I managed to finish up one book yesterday so that was good.

Plus Otis has been sick so I ended up taking him to the vet this past week. He is fine now but he was congested and started sounding asthmatic with wheezing, the vet said it’s a respiratory infection. She put him on a round of antibiotics and steroids and he is doing much better now. His vet is great and she really cares.

in my mailbox:
Wish Upon a Cowboy (Cowboys of Creedence) by Jennie Marts arrived via the publisher. I am excited about this one because I read the first book in this series Caught Up in a Cowboy this past September and it was good.

I’ve been watching Castle Rock season 2 which is OMG so good. There is just one episode left for the season. I am enjoying the plot twists and where they have taken Annie Wilkes’ story-line! I’ve also been catching episodes of Cold Case Files on Netflix which has been oddly addictive and at the same time sad to watch.

That wraps up my updates for the week. What are you up to? Enjoy your week.

  1. Yes I’ve been running around in my winter coat UGH. I was able to wear flip-flops and a lighter jacket this morning to take Lulu out and there’s finally a little sun. This week is supposed to be better. I’ve had to cover the garden at night too. Have a lovely week and enjoy your reads!

  2. Stay warm and safe, Naida. I am glad Otis is feeling better, poor little guy. I am glad too it wasn’t anything serious. I really enjoyed another of Jenny Colgan’s books and the one you’re going to read sounds wonderful. I hope you enjoy it! I hope you have a wonderful week, Naida!

  3. Happy Sunday, Naida! I, too, am glad that cutie pie Otis is fine now. I hope it doesn’t winter waits until next month back east. We had a warm, summery Sunday. Enjoy your reading in the week ahead! It looks like you have some cozy, Christmas-y reading to look forward to.

    Yes – that would be cold for me! Fun gif! I promise not to complain about 40 degrees anymore.

  5. Little Otis is such a cutie. I love your Gone with the Wind bookmark. I’m a bit jealous, now I’ve seen that I will have to go online and see if I can find one. 🙂
