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 everyone, I hope you are doing well and staying safe. I am happy May is here. I keep wanting time to push forward if that makes sense. Hopefully the covid cases keep going down as the weeks pass. My niece tested positive last week but she’s doing okay and staying home so knock on wood it is on it’s way out of her system. It took her 10 days to get her test results back.
We had more of less the same kind of week, thankfully uneventful, still working from home, still staying inside. My husband had to go to the grocery store finally after almost two weeks for a few things we can’t get from curbside pickup. So while there he picked up a few packs of burgers which we’ve been grilling this weekend and eating al fresco in the backyard. The weather has finally gotten really nice here and after rain pretty much all last week and most of April, we’ve now got a stretch of gorgeous sunny weather in the 60’s and 70’s for the next couple of days.
I’m relishing the sunshine and warm breeze on my face. It’s funny the things you really stop to appreciate now. The parks here in New Jersey have been reopened after being closed for a few weeks and I’m hoping people are social distancing if they go. As of now we are still in lock-down until May 15th.
onto my weekly updates….
recently on the blog:
I’m proud of myself, I reviewed two books this past week.
Redeeming the Reclusive Earl by Virginia Heath
I’ve set myself a personal goal of reading one book per week to try and get through my TBR mountain. This past week I read and LOVED Mrs. Lincoln’s Sisters by Jennifer Chiaverini. My thoughts will be up soon.
I re-watched Becoming Jane Austen for the umpteenth time and I recommend it, it’s a good one especially for the Austenites.
Also, my daughter and I binged two interesting documentary series on Disney Plus. I can’t think of the names right now, but they were both about ancient Egyptians and the Valley of the Kings and one of them was a 3 episode series on King Tut.
I finished up the larger rainbow pillow and added two clouds.
That covers my updates this week. How was your week? What are you up to? Stay well.
