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….
Hi all, happy weekend. Thanks for your input last week on the annoying blog ads, I’m ad free now. Ahhhh much better. I had a nice relaxing week off and it’s the first time in years I’ve had a staycation for a week. I read 2 books this week and posted 3 reviews and it was nice getting back into the swing of blogging. I worked on my crochet projects and I took Otis to the groomer. It’s amazing what you can get accomplished when you’re not on any set work schedule. We wanted to drive out for the day to a favorite state park/mountain but it’s actually been closed since early August due to danger of brush fire from the dry heat we’ve been having most of this month. Hopefully we can make it out there in a few weeks.
onto my bookish updates…
recently on the blog:
I shared my thoughts on My Dearest Julia: The Wartime Letters of Ulysses S. Grant to His Wife.
I also reviewed:
Modern Crochet Style by Lindsey Newns
Anyone Can Crochet Amigurumi Animals by Kristi Simpson
I read The Thin Place by C D Major this week so my review will be up Tuesday.
And I read The Little House by the Sea (Pennystrand Village Book 1) this week so my review will be up soon also.
in my mailbox:
Not that I needed this but I treated my self to Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover. I’ve read a few of her books and always enjoy them.
I watched Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey and it turned my stomach so I had to fast forward some of it. I find cults fascinating though. Also, American Horror Stories which has been okay so far. A few of the episodes were a little meh. What have you been watching?
Being off this past week meant more crochet time. I finished up these pumpkin stacks, one was on commission then I made a second one for my parents. The funny thing is I had all the materials I needed in my stash already so that was perfect lol. I had the idea in my head of how I wanted these to look and took it from there, I’m happy with the results. My SIL gifted me a bunch of cute handmade tags for my projects, I used some on these.
That wraps it up for now, thanks for stopping in. What are you up to? What are you reading? Enjoy your week!
