The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly  @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received.

Stacking The Shelves is also a weekly meme hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene from Reading Reality.  It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!


Don’t forget to look at my giveaways on the right sidebar.

Sunday, I worked on things at home blog stuff, laundry, and unpacking. I like an unhurried day to just work.  Monday went well with the usual school and appointments. Tuesday, my daughter had 2 medical appointments which really took the energy out of both of us.  Wednesday was fine; I got my reviews written. We did make it to quilting. We put the binding on the pink/navy/gray baby quilt, and then continued with squares.

I did get all the boxes unpacked for the kitchen. I had done everything but 4 boxes the first weekend at the end of June. Those last 4 boxes had been open, but not unpacked since 4 years ago in Minnesota.  There wasn’t room in the rental kitchen. So I went through the last one this week. Some into cabinets, some donated and some thrown away!  Yay me!  I have almost everything unpacked in my bedroom, and only a couple of boxes in the family room, too.  The dining room is full of the art work waiting to be hung.  Now I may take on my daughter’s stuff because she isn’t really getting to it.

Thursday, I just felt like I was slow all day.  I did a bunch of cooking, though. Friday, I was determined to do better. I mowed the lawn while my daughter was taking her midterm, did a bunch of laundry. Saturday, we had dog training class and ran a couple errands.  Then we were able to work on some more unpacking. We also had a good time going through flannel for a project to make receiving blankets for a women’s shelter.


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality.  These are the exciting ARCs I received this week (If you click on the cover, it will take you to the Goodreads entry):



 Thank you so much Tantor Audio, and Brilliance Audio.


(If you click on the cover, it will take you to the Goodreads entry)




I had a $5 coupon from using 2 credits earlier this month, so I got an Audible daily deal and  2 from the current Editor’s Picks sale.



I got these 2 from my digital Bookworm Box.


Now the really scary one. This is all the Kindle and Audible freebies I grabbed this past week. You can see why I need to do Thrifty Thursday to be sure I read a few at least one each month.




I really meant to cut back on freebies BUT  they are free so I guess that won’t be happening.


I’m not including things like reviews posted or upcoming as they are always in the right sidebar. And, my challenge status is also there.

If you like this and want to see me do the Sunday post, as often as I can manage, leave me a comment and let me know.

  1. Congrats on the unpacking progress! We’re working on getting unpacked here and I know how hard it can be. I have a really hard time leaving anything in a box for long, so I’m usually done in 2 -3 days. This time it’s taking me a bit longer, since I have Dante to take care of too. Good luck getting finished 🙂 Have a great week!

    • Thank you! It’s a combo of things which have been boxed for awhile as no place for them when renting and taking the time now to both put things where they really will be mots functional AND getting rid of things it is obvious we won’t need or use now. Take the time to enjoy your little guy – these days are so precious.

    • Well I have lots I want to do. I would say the first floor has more unpacking done but the upstairs has a long way to go yet. I am excited about reducing and using up the flannel since it was more workable for MN than NC. Oh I found out they are extending the pool being open until October 6th but doubtful we will get there anyway. But 90s right now, this week. UGH.

  2. Sounds like great progress on the unpacking. Emptying a box is always so satisfying. 🙂 That’s cool that the Bookworm Box has a digital option. I subscribed for their first 2 years or so and don’t remember them offering that back then.

    • I’m pretty sure the Bookworm Box digital is just new this year, August. But I don’t really want to collect more physical books so it is best for me. Moving has made it clear I want everything on my Kindle. Simple. Well I do have signed books in a bookcase but I try not to get too many.

    • Well no, this week we have some big medical appointments but then probably not much happening until mid November. So this week will be a bit hectic. But I’m really looking forward to next weekend because there isn’t dog training so I can stay home 2 days in a row with not having to get up and go early. I definitely need to do more reading. I haven’t read the books for my reviews this week yet. Sigh.

    • We did quilts this spring and they will be doing more quilts. But I have all this flannel and it will make great receiving blankets. I’ve been cutting it into the right sizes this afternoon. It’s really fun.

  3. It seems like the list of things to do never ends. I couldn’t imagine dealing with boxes to unpack. These are the things that make me quickly reconsider any ideas about moving. Nice new reads this week. I hope you enjoy them all and have a great week!

    • Thank you. The trick is to try to get yourself to go through things on a semi-regular basis. I just find it so much easier now with knowing what we will need or can use. I get the best books, although they were almost all audiobooks this week. It works out great because I can unpack or do laundry or cook or cut flannel while listening.

  4. Oh my Anne moving is such a long process! It seems to me that you are getting to the end of it. You are always so busy!!!!

  5. Sounds like you’re nearly there on the unpacking and even better that you were able to sort through older boxes doing a keep, donate, or pitch. Looks like plenty got accomplished this week and glad you had some time for reviews, cooking and quilting. Looks like you got some good audios for review and with your coupon. I grabbed the new Melinda Leigh and that was about it for me this week.

    Have a good one, Anne!

  6. You have had a really busy week, again, Anne. But go you for getting those last boxes unpacked. I remember just how depressing it is when you have a lot of your possessions all boxed up. Glad you managed to continue work on the quilt – and it was a great week for audiobooks:). I hope the coming week is a good one for you and your daughter.

  7. We’re coming up on one year in our new house and I still have a few boxes I stashed in a cupboard and haven’t unpacked… I keep thinking I want to get them sorted and gone before we reach one year but with my energy levels at the moment it’s probably not going to happen. Good luck finishing your boxes off! You’re bossing it. 🙂

    I know that Mom and I had those kind of boxes when we were moving a lot from middle to high school. I’m glad to be in one place now (though I think I still have some unpack boxes 15 years later). I’m sorry, I’ve been very MIA. I keep hoping to spend some time visiting everyone, because I really miss it. I’m behind on pretty much everything in my life, except my job. I’m hoping things will get back to normal soon.

    • Yes and I’m very excited to have this week finished and a 2 day weekend. Usually we have dog training on Saturday but it is canceled for this week. I will LOVE being home working on stuff. I’m horribly behind on reading and I want to work on the flannel project. And my Mom’s house sold this week so plenty happening.

  9. Your unpacking reminds me that I need to reorganize my bookshelves. And I definitely need to throw some things out too. Ah yes, with the cooler temperatures and rainy weather outside, Fall is the perfect time to get all those things done, right? *lol*

    Have a great weekend.
