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. Scourged giveaway ends tonight!!
Sunday, a busy day with blog visiting. The weather was warm and humid. I managed a short walk for Lulu. Then I had the chat for Scourged and then for COYER book club. I worked more in the office after dinner because I feel so behind on tasks.
Monday, I tried to get a handle to finish a few big tasks. I had some success but always want to do more. I laundered all the rugs in my daughter’s bathroom and Swiffer disinfected the floor after vacuuming. I couldn’t stand her not doing it anymore. I made good progress on hanging the shelf. I talked to the admissions counselor at her college and got a few more things finished. Lulu and I managed a short walk. The African violets and Christmas cactus are blooming, now if I could figure help the orchid.
Tuesday, I went to bed late and work up early. I walked the Kayla, Abby and Lulu. I’m working to get everything done so I can just relax more for a few weeks. I did almost all my 2024 blog ahead stuff this afternoon setting up Sunday posts, Sunday month end posts, Thrifty Thursday posts, Series on Saturday posts and the first Read-along set of posts. I still need to work on Library Love posts, which could have been done anytime after August when we decided stuff. UGH. I talked again to SNHU about my daughter’s classes and sent in more forms.
Wednesday, it was rather chilly today. I walked all the dogs. Today is eat the leftovers. Also do all the laundry. I went online and signed up for our healthcare for 2024. Then I did write some reviews. I got an email from dlvr.it that they will auto share to Bluesky. The free version only lets you choose 2 social so I would have to drop one to do Bluesky. I’ll have to think about it.
Thursday, today we are traveling to Atlanta GA. I was able to listen to a whole audiobook. It went pretty well. We got takeout dinner and we didn’t like it. So then we tried a gluten free pizza from Papa John’s which was ok. Lulu slept with me and really she prefers to sleep ON me.
Friday, My computer screen stopped working, so I am now using my daughter’s computer. I learned how to create a second Chrome profile on one computer. My daughter opted for some cuddle time after breakfast. We went to the Atlanta Zoo, then a restaurant and bakery that is dedicated gluten free. The zoo was really lovely; it’s a nice size and has a good selection of animals. We saw the pandas. There are 4 of them, a mom, a dad and twin children who are old enough now to also be solitary. The restaurant bakery food was fabulous.
Saturday, now we are on the way home.
Of course I am going to do COYER Unwind, all four Chapters. I imagine I will again read and review on the blog about 100 books at least. The Read-along chats are tagging along with COYER again. And the Library Love Bingo has a special opening for COYER in July and August. I’m a fan of the #SIAM reading a Series in a Month because I have so many I want to read.

I purchased this one with No Rush Shipping Rewards.
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.
