The Sunday Post #32


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Life: 

And another week has flown by. Is the time going by fast or what? This week was definitely a nice one. I only had to work two days which was good because our house was a mess. On Monday I spend the day cleaning, not because I wanted too but because it was really necessary. Believe me.. I couldn’t even see through our living room window. And don’t even start about the amount of laundry.. Seriously.. I was wondering if maybe we collected laundry for the whole street. 

On Tuesday one my girlfriends came by, and we had a little Netflix marathon with lots of snacks. We didn’t see a lot of the movies and series we watched because of all the talking (LOL) but it was a very nice day.

And yesterday my boyfriend and I went on a little road trip to visit his family. We had a really fun day. And tonight we have a birthday dinner for my grandma who turns 76 on Monday. I can’t believe how fast this weekend went by.

Books & Blogging:

Reading and blogging wise I had a pretty good week. I was able to read a little every day, and a lot on Thursday. And although the Blog Ahead challenge is coming to an end, and I didn’t even get half of the things I wanted to do done, I feel pretty good about it. And I was able to Blog Ahead a little more this week.

    1. Window cleaning is definitely some of the worst house chores out there. Hate it!!

    2. My solution for dirty windows...keep the blinds closed. lol

  6. I love Netflix marathons, but I usually do mine alone. Last year, I had house guests—my son and DIL—so we indulged in marathons, mostly Mad Men, which was our thing back then.

    I agree about the weeks flying by...even the weekends seem to go fast, too. I have been very lazy, though, and still the days and weeks zoom. lol.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. It's great to get together with friends for movies and munchies. I know what you mean about the gabbing. We do the very same thing.
    These books are new to me, so it will be good to see what you think of them.
