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….
Hello all, where did August go? I like this time of year with Summer still here but also with Fall just around the corner. My reading is still behind but I am managing to read here and there. Thanks for your kind words last week. I still have no answers on my skin issues, the biopsies came back unidentifiable. I went for a second more detailed round of blood-work this past week and am waiting on those results. For the past 7 days or so I have cut out several things from my diet that are potential allergens like nuts and even chocolate and I’m eating as clean as I can. I also stopped using products and stopped eating foods containing artificial dyes to see if that makes a difference.
We’ve had a quiet weekend here so I’m relaxing at home and trying to read and crochet, maybe watch a movie later. I worked yesterday but I refuse to work today. It’s so easy with working from home to log in for “just a few” then before you know it several hours have come and gone.
Onto my bookish updates….
My co-read of The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen with Velvet continues and I am enjoying this book very much. I mentioned last week that I am finding it very Zen-like. The book continues to take me away to exotic places and I like when the author writes about Buddist teachings and the different cultures and people he is coming across on the journey.
“A downward path is forged through the wet snows, striking a tree line of dwarf cedar six hundred feet below, and emerging at dusk on a saddleback ridge of alpine tundra where it is flat enough to pitch a tent. -p.70
Cat couch in progress! I had put this project to the side with not feeling well this month, but I picked it back up again this weekend. I’m more than halfway done with it.
That wraps it up for now, what are you up to? Thanks for stopping in 🙂
