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 went right to work on planting green beans where the beets used to be and spreading weed n feed on the front and side yards.  I finished up some of the menu plan.  My brother and Mom face-timed me from Florida.  I picked snow peas and carrots for dinner. I wrote some reviews.  Then Lulu and I walked a medium walk, but didn’t see the swans. We had fresh beets, carrots and snow peas from the garden for dinner.

Monday,  I did the backyard weed n feed, so now it is finished.  I did other cleanup sorts of tasks.  I wrote a review, got more posts ready to go.  I did the paperwork for the PT appt my daughter has later in the week.  I walked Lulu. My ex arrived in time for dinner.  He’s here for a couple weeks to help with projects.

Tuesday,  it’s raining all day.  I got an early start on visiting and emails. I went to walk Lulu and Abby but it was raining hard enough Abby was totally against it.  Lulu was surprisingly game but kept shaking off the water.  I unloaded the dishwasher and then gathered up my stuff to go out.  I went to the farmer’s market where I got fresh strawberries and peaches.  Then I stopped at Lidl but they don’t have the gluten free mac n cheese my daughter likes. Next was the eye doctor which went really fast because I didn’t have changes and don’t need glasses.  Then I went to Aldi for groceries.  After I got everything put away, I could relax a bit and prep for dinner.

Wednesday,  it isn’t raining as much as I expected. Abby and Lulu had a nice walk.  I’m glad to be home today and hope to get lots accomplished.  The ex and I went through the projects to work.

Thursday,  another nice day and walk with Abby and Lulu.  I placed an order for my free Papa Murphy’s birthday pizza.  I also put together a Walmart order for a bunch of items we needed. My daughter met with the physical therapist.  He’s very knowledgeable with hypomobility, and EDS.  He also was able to massage her neck which helped her headache. While we were gone, my ex had finally had time where the noise would not bother my daughter, and he framed the door of our work room.

Friday,  another day with plenty to do.  I walked Abby and Lulu.  I made the pizza for lunch.  Then I went to Harris Teeter to get more caffeinated soda on sale for my daughter to help wither her migraine.  My daughter’s headache was better so the PT had helped.

Saturday,  it was supposed to rain all day but didn’t.  I started out with the usual tasks, did my visiting and emails, then wrote some reviews.  I started planning and organizing my reads for June.   Lulu and I walked a medium route to the pool.  I wrote another review.


June will have another #SIAM. The plan is to read the next round of Kevin Hearne series in the Iron Druid world, Ink & Sigil.   Candle & Crow won’t be out until fall but there is a novella.




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):


 My grateful thanks to Harper Audio (2),

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.

  1. So good that the PT seems to be making a difference with your daughter’s migraines. What a relief. I did a lot of running around yesterday: Walmart, two different Targets, etc. I tried to go to Aldi (where I needed only two things) but they weren’t open yet. I guess not everyone is up and at ’em early on Saturday like I am. Ha!

  2. I hope that your daughters migraines get better soon. They are so awful.

    Sounds like you had a busy week. We had a bit of rain, but it was mainly sunny. I caught the sun slightly after standing talking to the neighbour for maybe half an hour 🤔

    Have a great week next week!

  3. The day lily is fabulous and how lovely to be eating so much fresh produce from the garden. So glad the physio seemed to help your daughter’s migraines and I hope the coming week is a good one, Anne:).

  4. I always love hearing about your garden and your walks with Lulu. I’m glad your daughter got some relief from the PT. It’s so hard knowing your child is in pain when you can’t really do anything about it. You are such a great support and advocate for her.

    I’ve been debating whether to read the Ink & Sigil books. I loved the Iron Druid books, right up until I realized that I didn’t like the way things were headed in terms of the overall arc of the series. (I peeked ahead when I realized it, and boy was I right. And yes, Atticus brought most of that on himself, but still.)

  5. Glad you got your birthday pizza and your daughter got a bit of relieve through the PT visit. Good pick for your SIAM challenge. I’m hoping to finally get my seedlings in the ground this week now that we’re getting consistent warmer weather.

    Have a good week, Anne!

  6. Glad your daughter is getting some relief. Sounds like lots of rain but thats good for flowers, vegetables etc in the future. Hope you have a good week.

  7. Glad to hear PT is helping with your daughter’s migraines. It’s so hard to see your child in pain! You don’t need glasses, Anne! I’m so jealous! I didn’t need them until my 40s and now I’m so dependent on them. I hate it. Pretty daylily and Lulu looks so cute napping. I love fresh peaches! I need to search for some good ones.

  8. It’s so good to find that therapist/doctor/medical professional who understands!! I am glad you found one that has experience with your daughter’s EDS. Wyatt and I were both actually just tested for that.

    Fresh strawberries are calling my name lately! Have a good week!

  9. Sounds like a rainy week – has the humidity gotten unbearable yet? We are finally getting some spring weather, with highs in the 60s. We even may hit 80 this week (but not maintain). I’ve been busy with all my daughter’s “lasts” but it’s all good. This week ahead is slower, so I should be able to get stuff done.

  10. Sounds like Lulu was very active, and I am glad your daughter is finding some relief. I keep missing the live shows for WTZ and feel I should apologize. Sunday is pretty much the only time my mom manages to come into town to visit and she usually shows up around 1pm. I am so glad I joined though as Angel has now solidified herself as one of my all-time favorite characters. Can’t wait to read the last one but it will be bittersweet. Glad to see Black Bear Alibi is still free because I say the cover and immediately jumped over to grab it!

  11. I hope your daughter’s headache is better. I really struggle this time of year with the season changes. What a beautiful daylily! I hope you’re having a wonderful week!
