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 I lollygagged and read in the morning. Then I finally got going on visiting. I got my Wordle in 2 tries. But for the first time ever a couple days ago I couldn’t even make any guesses for a word after the 4th try and having 3 letters in the right place A_E_D My last guess was amend. I had two more guesses but gave up. I am very sad / worried / angry about the situation in Ukraine. I’ve seen complaints about gas prices going up. We in America only get about 1-3% of ours from Russia. I have lost track of gas prices because electric hybrid. I only buy gas 1-2 times per year. With us staying home more, we aren’t buying gas often. The weather was really warm 80 F / 27C and Lulu enjoyed her walk as always.
Monday, I read in the morning to finish up an eARC. Another very warm day, Lulu and I walked a longer route again. I didn’t do as much as I wanted but I got a bit organized. I read Devil to Pay (Night Huntress #3.5) novella. I’m really thrilled by how active the Read-along FB messenger chats are that we set up following the FB room chats.
Tuesday, I got a lot of tasks which were hanging around off my plate. I placed a pickup order with Harris Teeter and also for my Rxs. I called the OBGYN about my daughter and my appointments. I ordered one of my daughter’s dermatology lotions. I set up some posts. I talked to Walgreens but I could tell the person I talked with was a waste of time and I’ll need to call again tomorrow.
Wednesday, it’s a cloudy, rainy day so I’ve been writing reviews, doing laundry, vacuuming and other chores. I talked to Walgreens and confirmed they messed things up.
Thursday, still cloudy a bit of drizzle. I tried to get going a little earlier with a Walmart pickup. I was supposed to have my car detailed so I was cleaning everything out of the car. But it was cancelled again which worked out as it rained anyway. I did some cleanup in the garage. I’m reorganizing the shelves since I have two new ones which used to be in a kitchen pantry. I forgot to call the OBGYN and will have to do it tomorrow. Wow I hit the books jackpot! My Goodreads giveaway arrived from Minotaur Books – The Drowning Sea by Sarah Taylor Stewart. Then I got a pile of unexpected books from Berkley Romance. I don’t get physical books very often anymore. I do request a few for books I am reading to giveaway. These will be giveaways too. You will also be able to tell from my overflowing New books (ARCs) that I FINALLY went through review requests and accepted some.
Friday, it wasn’t supposed to rain but it is raining this afternoon. It’s warmer but I still feel cold in the house. I called the OBGYN right away because I think they only work the morning on Friday. Walgreens partial filled the other Rx but had told me they would have more today so I’ll wait to see if I can get the whole Rx later today rather than making 2 trips.
Saturday, I spent a lot of the day reading. I did go pick up the 2 Rx at Walgreens. Lulu went along and is a fan of heated seats. The wind was extremely blustery and made it feel very cold. It’s getting down to 20F /-7C tonight!

I have been wanting to read this one and couldn’t pass up the $3.95 Audible Daily deal.
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.
