The Sunday Post #80: Missing Sunshine



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its 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.

Another week has flown by and the one thing I need to start by saying.. Are you guys as ready for the summer as I am? I mean I’ve just had it with the cold weather, the rain and the storms. I’m in desperate need for some sun. Sigh.. No more complaining from this point. LOL!!

This week was busy but still good. I worked four days. On Wednesday I went to visit my mother in law and we had lunch together. We talked a lot and we just had a good time. I only planned on going two hours at most, but in the end I stayed four hours. I guess we had to do some catching up.

On Friday after work my husband and I went out to dinner. Just the two of us, in a new restaurant in town. It was really nice to just be out together. The food wasn’t spectacular and the waiters were just all over the place but we laughed a lot and just enjoyed each other’s company.  It was a good evening.

And today, Saturday,  my husband and I slept in and had a nice and slow morning. Tonight we are going to my mom’s place for dinner, and my grandma is also coming. We have a big surprise for her. I can’t wait.

Books & Blogging:

I’ve been doing some re-reading of favorites because I just haven’t been able to read as much as I used too. There’s just to much going on. But reading my favorite books again is working out great. I also finished the Sign Up for a Book Promo I’m organizing in April. It was first scheduled in January, but unfortunately we had to reschedule. It’s now up in April and if you want you can sign up too. ;)

    1. Sigh.. Snow. Apparently it's coming here too this week. And it's freezing, a lot. They said on the radio to get your ice-skates ready. Somehow I was thinking more of getting my summer clothes out of the closet at the start of February.
      Have a great week Greg, and happy reading!

  2. Oh man, I wish I got The Boy on the Bridge! Really want to read that one. And also, you are not the only one missing summer - I am just like that! I literally power down every time the sun sets (which is every day after 3pm) xD

  5. That's how we felt the last time The Man and I went to the River Walk. We tried a new restaurant and it was a total bomb, but we enjoyed the night out. Sounds like a lovely week except for the weather. I was shocked when I went out today and it was warm and the sun was out. It was so blustery yesterday!!

  9. I would be happy to send you some of our sunshine if you would kindly share the rain? If only, right? It sounds like you have been busy with work. I am glad you were able to have a nice evening out with your husband! Valentine's Day is coming up and everyone is advertising "dinner for two" or something "for two" and my daughter doesn't understand why it can't be for three. Why would they exclude anyone, she wants to know. Haha. Valentine's Day is a family affair in our house. :-) I am anxious to read The Boy on the Bridge. I liked Carey's first book set in that world so much. I hope you are well, Maureen!
