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….
Good morning all. I can’t believe July has nearly come and gone. I hope you are doing well. I’ve not been on blog land much lately, between work and everything else sometimes it’s hard to find time and motivation to blog.
Not much happening here thankfully just the usual. The weather has been very hot and humid and in the high 90’s lately. I’ve been watching tv and crocheting alot inside with the air conditioning. For now I’m still working from home for over 100 days which I’m grateful for. I actually started going to the office for a few hours on Saturday mornings when it’s empty. It’s weird going back after so long and feels very odd working alone, it feels surreal. Usually there’s 18 people in my department and a few hundred in the building during normal life pre-quarantine.
My husband is back to work now with social distancing from his co-workers and wearing masks but it still stresses me out to no end. He got tested just to be extra careful since he’s been back to work and it took over 14 days to get the results back, negative thankfully but that’s a long time to wait on results.
Anyway, we still go for walks often early in the day to avoid people, below is a pic I took recently at the park.
onto my bookish updates…
Recently on the blog:
I’ve been officially in a reading slump but I finally managed to finish The House We Grew Up In and I shared my thoughts on that this past week.
In My Mailbox:
Instant Attraction (Wilder Book 1) was free from Amazon Prime. I’ve been wanting to read Jill Shavis so I was happy to grab a copy of this one.
Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop by Rebecca Raisin was also free through Prime and I really need to make time for this one. I’ve read this author before and enjoyed her work.
Coming soon on the blog:
This upcoming week I am sharing a poem on Tuesday as part of Serena’s Poetry Challenge and on Wednesday I have an author spotlight for Mary Keliikoa so I hope you come back for those posts if they interest you.
I watched Hamilton on Disney+ and it was very good and I had the songs stuck in my head for days.
Now I’m hooked on The Handmaids Tale and can’t stop watching. It took me two episodes in to finally get totally sucked into it. This has a very twisted storyline.
I finished up another set of potholders in cotton. I have so much cotton yarn laying around I’ve been making sets like these for family and close friends.
That’s about it for now. How are you doing? What are you reading? Watching? Enjoy your week and stay well.
