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…

Happy Sunday all and Happy 4th of July weekend. Summer is in full swing here with high temps although we do still have alot of rain as well. I’ve been away from blogland for a few weeks due to the usual busy workdays, my family and now the summer weather beckons so I’ve been enjoying it as much as I can. The beach photos in this post are from our recent mini-vacation. That sunset stole my breath away the two nights we were away at the beach. It is nice to stop and just enjoy the beauty found in nature.

On a bookish note, I fully blame work on my lack of reading these last few weeks, sitting at the computer all day crunching numbers just leaves my eyes and my brain too tired to focus on reading when I get home. I did manage to read I Am Legend last week and it was a good one. I randomly picked it up off my shelves in an attempt to get back on reading track. Hopefully I can enjoy reading more when I’m on vacation this summer.

I want to read these books in July:
Knight on the Texas Plains (Texas Heroes book 1) by Linda Broday is due for review on August 1st so I need to get to it. It looks good.

Hello all and happy Monday. I hope you are all doing well. I have been missing from blogland for about a month and I definitely missed it. Blogging took a backseat as the warm weather rolled in and although I haven’t been visiting blogland too much, I have gotten a few good books read. I figured a MM post would be a nice way to jump back in and post a few updates.

I’ve slowly been visiting my blog friends this past week and it has been nice catching up but I can’t go back and see all the missed posts for everyone. So if there is a must see review or announcement at your blog, please leave me the link in the comments here. I don’t want to miss it.

If you noticed the Michael Phelps pic up there, it is because I have been watching and enjoying the Rio Olympic Games. I’m not much of a sports fan, but when the Olympic games roll around, I am all in. My favorites are the swimmers and the gymnasts. Watching the games has also given me plenty of crochet time as well.
I’ve been working on this baby blanket for a friend.


As far as books go, these are my most recent additions….
