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 everyone. I hope you are all staying safe and able to stay home during these uncertain times.
I haven’t been on blogland at all in about two weeks and I have found it hard to even concentrate enough to read a book so I have not been reading. I’ve been working from home alternately, one week at home then one week in the office. I hope that will change soon and that I can work from home full time until this passes. I work in Bergen County, New Jersey which has the highest numbers of COVID-19 cases in the state so far. I stay isolated in my cubicle when I am in the office and eat my lunch by myself as well. Half the building is empty rotating weeks at home and I stay away from co-workers as much as I can when I am there. This all seems surreal. I would be lying if I said I haven’t had a few meltdowns and cried it out but I’m trying to stay positive and of course be safe.
I haven’t let my kids leave the house since last Friday and they will continue to stay home as long as it takes. It is hard for them staying at home away from friends but necessary.
On the weeks I work from home, Otis insists on staying on my lap. He is good company….
onto my bookish updates….
I finished reading The Outsider a few weeks back and I loved it. I am going to get my review ready and set that to post this coming week. This is the last time I was actually able to read a book with all the craziness going on but I will try again this weekend and see if something holds my interest. My husband and I are enjoying watching the series now. It is similar to the book, but also different. It’s still good.
I’m not sure yet. I have plenty to pick from though.
I watched the documentary series The West which was another fantastic one by Ken Burns. They’ve since taken it off Netflix, but if you’re into history and get a chance to watch this one, I recommend.
As I mentioned before, I am watching The Outsider which is good so far and based on the Stephen King novel.
What are you watching? Have you seen any of these?
This past Friday after I was done working my son took us for a drive to a state park we always enjoy visiting. It was beautiful out. We brought our cameras and shot a few pictures. We made sure not to get near anyone or touch any rails or benches etc….the park was pretty empty as it was.
I will close with a few photos I took.
A reminder that Spring has arrived…these flowers smelled so nice.
I love this shot below. My son does freelance photography and I took a picture of his hands while he was taking a picture of an old building at the park. I know I’m biased but my son is a talented photographer. He has the eye for it. He does weddings, portraits etc…but when he takes his camera out and sees what he can find, he really takes some amazing shots.
That’s it for now. How are you doing? I will be blog hopping here and there this weekend to see what everyone is up to. Stay safe and take care xo
