Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

Every time I read, "Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!" I hear it in the old Monster Jam truck show voice. I should go find that on YouTube so I can prove I'm not nuts. Until then, maybe you'll just think I am. Whatever. 

This Sunday I'm joining in with Deb at Readerbuzz for The Sunday Salon, and Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer for Sunday Post. It's my attempt to pretend I post something other than book reviews, except I still mostly talk about books. 


Last three reads:

Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan (reviewed here)

Libertie by Kaitlyn Greenidge (reviewing soon at BooksIThinkYouShouldRead)

They All Fall Down by Rachel Howzell Hall (reviewing soon at SweetlyBSquared)

Reading now:

Next three (probable) reads:

Knives and Knightsticks by K. Lew & C.R. Lockhart

The Sweet Taste of Muscadines by Pamela Terry

At the End of the World, Turn Left by Zhanna Slor


Three things I've done besides read this week:

  1. Watched some Netflix - The Wrong MissyThe Do-Over, and The Last Blockbuster
  2. Re-potted the mini rosebush that hubs gave me for Valentine's Day.
  3. Finally returned the school library books that Jack's teacher gave him at Christmas time. The school library is only open after my work hours on Wednesdays, and we are usually at baton practice on Wednesdays. So having everyone gone meant I was free to do something else on Wednesday - return library books (luckily they don't track how late they may have been!).

Three good things:

  1. My family comes home today! I've missed them. They all took the week off before hubs starts his new job tomorrow. I'm still new-ish at my job, so I stayed home and worked all week. It was peaceful, but I'm ready for some hugs and snuggles.
  2. All of my work computer stuff is finally here! I've got quite the set-up, but it's way easier to learn/do my job with enough monitor space to keep it all straight.
  3. Spring is definitely coming! We had a couple nice days last week, and although it's chilly and rainy now, there are more good days in the forecast.

Three things to-do this week:

  1. Finish working on Jack's room. I was lucky enough to get a free dresser that fits in his walk-in closet. Now I'm emptying out the wire drawers he's been using in there (repurposing them to the basement?), getting rid of too-small clothes (just bagging them and putting them in storage while Purple Heart isn't picking up), and putting the good stuff where he can easily access it and maintain the organization.
  2. It's spring break for the kids! Hopefully find stuff for them to do that will keep them out of my hair. Hahaha... Hubs and I are both working from home (at least I am, I think he is?), so I suppose my to-do is to work hours without being overcome with jealousy that my kids have free time all week.
  3. Get family groceries and cook a couple dinners. No, really, it's a goal. Ski season is finally over, so I think we'll all be home for dinner. This hasn't happened in months! 

Three things I wish for:

  1. Warm spring weather.
  2. A meeting with our landscaping guy to get it all on track for spring (weed the front garden area, plant something in the shady spot, start on a property line plan on the east side of the back yard).
  3. Convenient vaccine appointments for hubs and I.

Hope you all have a great week, and hope you always picture Olaf in Frozen whenever you read 'good things.'

Waiting for things to warm up before I jump into my skirts again. I missed out on skiing this year, but I know there will be fun adventures ahead.

First (and most importantly? ;) ), I hear it too with the "Sunday, Sunday, Sunday," so you're not the only one. And here's proof...and oh my...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohp_nmI_TFA

So how was The Last Blockbuster? My wife is interested in watching. Was it any good? So what is your new job? Are you liking it so far? Spring is basically here, but rain and chilly here too, but I'm just "chilling" inside today in something called "The Chill Out Tent."

Ooh, I've heard good things about The Last Blockbuster, I need to watch that too. We keep having some warmer weather and then it gets cold again for a week. I'm ready for real spring weather, but not summer. Have a good week!

I am looking for a warm spring, I am not a summer person but spring with the warm storms. I love it!

You just reminded me I have to start getting my garden ready.

Good Luck with the room! I am looking forward to my kids spring break, they really need the break and so do I

Have a great week!

I like the titles of all three the books you hope to read next. Especially At the end of the earth, turn left. Curious for you to tell us about it!

Have a good week and enjoy the time with your family.

I'm so glad you joined in the Sunday Salon today. I hope you don't feel bad about being so bookish; it's hard for me to post anything except bookish things, too.

I'm eager to watch The Last Blockbuster. We loved our store for so many years. It was sad when it went away.

I bet you will be glad to have your family back home. Hope your kids enjoy spring break and let you and your husband work. I cannot imagine how tough it must be to work at home while your kids are there.

Here's to you getting a vaccine appointment soon.

I'm hoping to cook more this week myself. Too many frozen meals and take out lately.

Enjoy the return of your family!

Greg said...

You sound busy! Good luck with the work stuff and enjoy spring break!

Hope you guys have an awesome week. :)

Yvonne said...

I'm just about to start Tell No Lies. I did read the first book and enjoyed it. I hope you get your vaccine appointments soon.

Have a great week!

Hope you have a great week. Love spring weather. Glad your family is home!

crackercrumblife said...

I wish for those appointments for you too!

And I totally heard that in the Monster Truck guy voice. LOL.

I tried to schedule a pick up with Purple Heart. Imagine my surprise when the date they gave me was December 2021. LOL. I need to put some of this stuff on a freecycle site or something. I am on the lookout for a freebie cabinet/bookshelf type situation for my office. And score on your find!

I hope you'll get the vaccines soon. Meanwhile, I'm sending you the warm spring weather we currently experience here in Burgundy, it feels like summer and boy, does it feel good ! Enjoy your week :)

I remember Monster Jam! You’re not crazy. I watched The Last Blockbuster too. I thought it was amusing. Good luck to that Blockbuster!
