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….
Oh boy, March has arrived. This is the longest coldest month ever but at least that means Spring is in sight. I’m back on my blog this weekend dusting off the virtual cobwebs. I went MIA for a few weeks last month due to long work hours and just daily life in general. February was a very busy month. I’ve been putting in 9 and 10 hour work days at the office. I got into a small fender bender last month but no one was hurt and my car is fixed already actually. I went to a concert which was amazing as usual and on my days off I’ve been trying to just rest and recharge. I hope you are all doing well and I will be blog hopping now and catching up.
Onto my bookish updates….
recently on the blog:
I popped in this past week and posted for Serena’s Poetry Reading Challenge . I aim to post a poem the last Tuesday of each month this year.
Ask Me Why I Love You by Walter Everette Hawkins was my pick for February.
Yesterday I finally posted my thoughts on Paw of the Jungle by Diane Kelly which was an ARC I received last October so this review was long overdue but I’m glad I finally got to it.
An ARC of Redeeming the Reclusive Earl arrived via Rachels Random Resources for review and I cannot wait to read it. I enjoy reading Virginia Heath. Rachel is funny because she made sure to email me again when I didn’t respond to the first group email she sent out about this one… she knows I love reading Virginia Heath so she wanted to double check that I hadn’t missed the first email, which I had, so I’m glad she checked with me again or I would have missed out.
I treated myself to a copy of The Outsider two weeks ago and I am just about finished reading so my thoughts will be up within the next couple of weeks. Fantastic King as usual. I’ve been bringing this book to work with me to read on my lunch break and a few co-workers have been asking me about it, but they mostly comment on the size of the hard cover. That’s tomato soup and grilled cheese by the way, yum.
I’m just about done with my corner to corner blanket. I love the way it has turned out and it is pretty much how I envisioned it when I started the project. I went back and re-did the light pink heart to make it smaller and so that I could make all 3 hearts the same size. Here it is photographed outside on a cold Winter day a few weeks ago. The natural light makes the true colors really pop.
Also of note, I was so happy because Boye shared one of my blanket pictures on their Instagram. I’ve been using their hook on this project.
Once my blanket is done, I already have my next project in mind which is for a dear friend of ours who now lives down South. He was recently in town on a business trip when he kindly reminded me that he has been waiting for over one decade for me to crochet something for him. lol. He is right though, I promised to make him a few home decor items literally 10 years ago then I totally forgot about it.
That about wraps it up for now. What are you up to lately? Thanks for stopping in and happy reading!
