Sunday Post - 26 April 2020
I'm joining Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer (and the rest of the crew) for the Sunday Post this week.
Just for the purpose of my own personal statistics:
We've been out of school since March 13 - going on seven weeks now.
I've had to report to work four days since then. Once, March 16, to get our perishable foods out of our school kitchen and to a central distribution site, and the other three times to pack and/or hand out meals to kids in need. Our district distributes three days of breakfasts and lunches each Monday, and four days of breakfasts and lunches each Thursday.
The kids and I drove through the boonies to Linden, Michigan on Friday, March 20 to pick up a 1/4 of a cow from the butcher. Yay for not running out of beef any time soon.
On April 15, we drove to one of my daughter's friend's house to drop off a birthday present (and picked up a pizza order while we were out).
After work on Monday, April 20, I drove to the post office to pick up my packages, and then bought groceries at our local Meijer. On Thursday, April 23, I again got stuff we needed from Meijer, since I do not have another day out of the house scheduled.
This afternoon we're joining a local birthday parade for another friend of my daughter.
I've finished 17 books since March 13. I still haven't picked up my counted cross-stitch, but I would still like to, Right now I'm trying to bring my TBR list around to books published in 2020. I have one left from 2018 (up next), and two from 2019 (but I haven't received one as promised from the publisher yet). It's good to have goals, right?
Last Week on the Blog

Also finished reading and reviewing Gotham High. My daughter and I really liked it, but hardcore comic fans may not be as fond of some of the characterizations. Check out my full review (and a giveaway!) here.

Reviewing The Secrets of Love Story Bridge
Think of a post that isn't completely about books? LOL
I also plan to finish reading and reviewing Kill Code by Clive Fleury.
Around the Blogosphere
This post from Yes/No Detroit last year still gives a nice heads-up for several meal delivery plans. This is how we've been eating well, and having something to do by cooking new meals! Another word of warning, some companies are so busy now they aren't taking new customers, or allowing you to reactivate if you were with them previously but chose to suspend your account. We've used Home Chef the most, but have a Gobble box coming soon from another friend's referral link.
What are your best tips for surviving and enjoying the best parts of lockdown? If you're in an area that is not encouraging staying home, where is that??
Take care of your and yours :)
