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.
Don’t forget to look at my giveaways on the right sidebar.
Sunday, a sunny but chilly day. I started beef stew in the crockpot. I had plenty of Feedly and visiting to catchup since I missed it on Saturday. I’m staying up later and getting up later to watch more of the Olympics. Lulu and I walked a shorter route. It was cold enough I should have worn gloves.
Monday, was a rainy day so I could wear pajama pants. I worked on various blog posts and other things but didn’t feel like I accomplished much. I realized I am no longer really a week ahead. I have one book to finish for this week and 2 for next week. But to be fair, I don’t have the audio ARCs for the 2 for next week. I already moved Thrifty Thursday up to this week since I didn’t have them. I really felt better when I was a week or two ahead of schedule.
Tuesday, was another stayed up too late, got up late. I did some blog stuff and visiting while waiting for the freezer repair guy to show up. As I expected it is the door seal. He ordered the gasket and will be back to install it at the end of March, but I can call if it arrives earlier. Luckily, it is staying cold, it’s just getting frost inside. Lulu and I walked one of the longer routes in the neighborhood today. I decided I just had to stay up to see some of the Olympics after going to bed earlier last night and missing things. I was up until 3 am.
Wednesday, well not an early start of course. I stayed in bed until I had finished my book for tomorrow since I have to write the review and I have other reviews to write. I got an eARC for April which I was thinking I wasn’t going to get – YEAH! The weather is better and much nicer for walking with Lulu. I finally got one of the ARCs for next week. Well I got to watch all the Olympics I love and made it to bed by 2am.
Thursday, it’s a good thing I was sleeping long hours before this week because 5-6 hours is all I can fit in with watching the Olympics. Today, my daughter is off to the zoo with my ex. It’s going to be gorgeous, 65F / 19C so Lulu and I will try to get in a longer walk. First I had an Instacart coming from Wegmans.
Friday, I managed to get up earlier and it’s a gorgeous day. I finally got my last audio ARC for next week. I also got a Butcherbox order and somehow managed to stuff it all into the freezer, and update the freezer inventory. Lulu and I walked the longest route in the neighborhood. After dinner, we had Christmas for things my ex brought for my daughter.
Saturday was another beautiful day and I had plans to do plenty of outdoor stuff after some laundry and computer tasks. Lulu slept under my table / desk. It’s great that it is also a sun spot as it is under the window. I was listening to my audio for DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) and just listened until I finished. I worked a bit with compost. Then Lulu and I did another long route walk. Then I powerwashed the rest of the driveway, which I couldn’t do last summer as I didn’t have a long enough hose. I was completely splattered with mud and had to shower again afterward. My ex repaired the loose fence slats and cleaned out the gutters. I perused the Audible 2-1 sale and will probably get something tomorrow. There are also MANY great deals at Chirp for $2-4.
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by 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):
These are the amazing review copies I received from Penguin Audio, Berkley, McMillan Audiobooks, Simon & Schuster Audio, and Harper Audio.

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.
