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 well. Another week flew right by. The weather was unseasonably warm here all week, we hit the upper 70’s a few times but today it’s pretty cool out in the 50’s so it feels like Fall. I had a busy week, but I’ve been off since Friday and took tomorrow off to make it a 4-day weekend which is much needed. We went to a book signing this past week which was really great. I’ll share more about that under the mailbox section of this post. I also attended the annual work awards dinner which I hadn’t gone to in a few years. It’s nice because the venue is beautiful, and we get cocktail hour, dinner, dessert and an open bar and the valet is complimentary. All you have to do is show up pretty much and it gives me a reason to get dolled up which can be nice sometimes. The filet mignon was very delicious.
Onto my bookish updates….
recently on the blog:
Book Spotlight: The Road to Christmas by Sheila Roberts
Author Guest Post: Operation Mom! by Reenita M. Hora
My thoughts will be up tomorrow for In Her Highlander’s Bed. Finally.
in my mailbox:
We met Terry Crews!! He was so nice! He’s on tour for his new children’s book called Terry’s Crew and we also grabbed a copy of his memoir Tough. He signed our books and it was definitely an awesome moment. I googled him and I had no idea he had such an inspiring story to share. I’m looking forward to reading his memoir. My daughter was the one who mainly wanted to meet him she’s a fan of his from Everybody Hates Chris. I really mainly knew him from White Chicks. Makin’ my way downtown….. 🙂
I finished watching season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale. I liked this season alot and the final episode was so good. I’ve heard season 6 will be the final one.
I binged Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities. I am so glad I stuck with this because I almost gave up on it after episode 2. Episode 2 was just gross, it was mainly about rats, corpses and claustrophobic settings. Did I mention the rats? Giant rats. I made it through maybe 10 minutes of episode 3 because it started off being nasty too, then I jumped ahead to the 4th episode and the show got much better. The final episode was awesome. Andrew Lincoln stars in the last episode and he was fantastic. Have you watched this?
I also watched Don’t Worry Darling and it was pretty good overall, though I wanted answers to some things but that’s ok.
I’m working on a bag for a friend. I’m nearly done, I’m finishing up sewing in the lining and crocheted two handles. I really dislike sewing so that part is taking me forever, but you can’t leave a crocheted bag unlined or things will fall out of it. This bag is made up of 13 granny squares.
That wraps up my updates for now. What have you been up to? Hope you enjoy your week ahead. I’ll close with a pic of Otis. He went to the groomer yesterday and this will be his last grooming until Spring since I like to leave his long coat for the winter months.
