Sunday Post/Sunday Salon - 2023 New Year Edition

Happy New Year!

I feel like I should have something to say, so I'm chiming in with Caffeinated Reviewer's Sunday Post and Readerbuzz's Sunday Salon (and hoping this will help me remember that it is, indeed, Sunday). 

This Week in Books


Upgrade by Blake Crouch

Code Girls by Liza Mundy

Luminary: A Magical Guide to Self-Care by Kate Scelsa

Moonrise Over New Jessup by Jamila Minnicks


Positively Izzy by Terri Libenson

Room and Board by Miriam Parker

Eagerly Awaiting:

Outside of Books

  • Wrapping up some extra responsibilities at work while the manager has been on vacation (totally doable, but just a lil extra stress)
  • Wondering at not having more guilt over skipping my yearly accomplishments and goals posts - just out of effs to give, I guess
  • Working on straightening up my home office, since we've been back to the office since May. Considering maybe an extra bed so it's sort of a guest room?
Three Good Things
  1. Having a job I enjoy, so I don't have to dread the end of long weekends.
  2. Everyone - including me - being happy with their holiday gifts.
  3. Enough. We all have enough.

Hope the holidays have been good for you and yours as well :)

Happy New Year!

We do all have enough. Thank you for the reminder.

I've heard positive things about Positively Izzy. I hope you enjoy it, too.

So happy to have you join in this week to Sunday Salon.

I would like to read Code Girls. Such an interesting part of history!

I came close to not doing a year end summary but then threw something together at the last minute. Nothing wrong with not doing one.

Good luck with deciding whether to add a bed to your home office. It's not a bad idea, especially if you have company now and then who could use it. I'm finally getting a new desk for my library/living room, which also serves as my home office when I'm working from home. Three years late. I'm probably going to be working more in the office soon, but it'll still be nice to have a decent desk--and it will be a good addition to the room.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!
