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, 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 continued my working on blog posts, reviews and visiting. I forgot to mention last week – my daughter had her first paper for communications and got 100/100!! Monday was our long day with classes, errands, and a medical appointment. I listened to a really great audio book but still fell asleep in the parked car for a few minutes. Tuesday was physical therapy and the report was good, so now she only has to go every other week! I was following up with giveaway winners, catching up on reading, laundry and menu planning. I started hanging the photos in the dining room.
Wednesday, another round of classes. My daughter had another paper due, so no quilting. I went to get my grandmother’s clock fixed up and more errands while she had classes. Thursday was a rainy, relaxed day at home. I worked on reading, posts and tried a bit to catch up on emails. It is so easy to get behind on blog post emails! I really try but I get a LOT of them. I’m having to resort to commenting only if I actually have something to say. I’m finding it important to do menu planning so that I make balanced meals and we actually eat something other than junk food.
Friday was the usual errands but included a trip to Penzeys to get some of their latest deals. I love trying different ones of their spices and it’s easiest when they go on sale. It was sunny and nice for all the errands. Planted in September, after many nights of 20F/ -7C weather, the rebel broccoli soldiers forward. There are about 6 new little heads. I finally got around to visiting a bunch of blog posts. We didn’t do anything exciting, just relaxed.
Saturday, I wrote some reviews. I handled some more emails. I listened to an audiobook. I made homemade pizza for dinner. I tired to figure out how to put additional art work on the dining room wall.
I look forward to this week with no physical therapy appointment, we have all day Tuesday and Thursday open! Tomorrow I start reading, with Carole, the second in the Nora Roberts trilogy, Of Blood and Bone.
Has anybody gone on a cruise or trip to Alaska?
It’s the only state we’ve never visited so we are planning it as our summer trip. Do you have any recommendations on cruises, places in Alaska to stay or see or eat? We’ve also never been on a cruise but that seems to be a good possible way to visit. Do they have decent gluten-free cruise food? I have lots of air miles with American, does anyone know if their travel group is good?
If you have any tips for me, please comment.
Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Casablanca, MacMillan/ Tor-Forge, Berkley, Harlequin Audio, and Tantor Audio.

I bought this anthology to support firefighters and wildlife which has stories by some authors I enjoy. There’s another one which has stories about firefighters. I also got the latest Krewe of Hunters for $4 at Chirp. I’m at the beginning of the series but who doesn’t love Luke Daniels?
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.
