Sunday Post/Mailbox Monday: 11/6/2022 Updates and Sweet November

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 weekend, I hope this post finds you doing well. Happy November! That was fast. This is another favorite month since we’re still hanging onto the nice Fall weather.

It’s been an interesting week. I wound up dressing up as a zombie nurse for Halloween and my daughter dressed up as the mad scientist that turned me into a zombie. We had a fun time getting our costumes ready and handing out candy on Monday. And the weather has been amazing this past week. We had such a gorgeous day yesterday with a nice breeze and temps up in the 70’s. We drove out to our favorite park and sat by the lake yesterday. I’ll share pics at the end of this post.

onto my bookish updates…
recently on the blog:

Author Guest Post: Sticks and Stones by Chelsea DeVries.

coming soon:


Was reviewing more books not one of the reasons I bought myself my beautiful laptop? lol I SWEAR I have reviews coming up soon. My blog cannot just be about me talking about myself on the weekends with a few book spotlights sprinkled in between during the week. I love sharing the book spotlights with you all and I hope you enjoy them, but I definitely need to get back into reviewing.
I do have guest posts coming up for these:





in my mailbox

Knot Bad Amigurumi by Vincent Green-Hite. Look how cute!! Vincent is pretty well known in the world of crochet so I’m looking forward to making something from this book to share with my review.


Author Michael Cordell sent me a copy of his latest Conviction. I’m excited to read this one because I read his other book called Our Trespasses and really enjoyed it.


I received a copy of To Catch the Setting Sun by Richard I. Levine for a December review. How cool is this cover?


That wraps up my book updates for now. I’ll close with a few pics from the past couple of weeks on our walks and day trips. What are you up to? How’s your reading and reviewing going? Enjoy your week ahead!


With my son. I caught our shadows.


I like the way the view is mirrored here in the water.






Otis loves going for his walks and wants to explore everything.

  2. Love your photos. I started to crochet this summer and I do not feel I am advanced enough to try amigurumi. My daughter started at the same time as I did and she is a natural, has made a whale, a bunny, and several other cute little things. Have fun!

    To Catch a Setting Sun does have a great cover… my first thought was Florida but I looked and it’s Hawaii. Nice.
