It's Sunday Post time! This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week!
What I Got:
Haunted Plantations of the South by Richard Southall - I love ghost stories and couldn't pass this one up! (NetGalley)
Eating Rome by Elizabeth Helman Minchelli - This is basically a tour of Rome through food. Through Minchelli we tour the city through food. I can't wait! (NetGalley)
A Kiss to Build a Dream On by Kim Amos - Former spoiled girl has come back to town to turn her old family home into a B&B. Former first love is now a contractor. This one covers about 90% of my favorite plots. Really if someone can find a diary hidden in the floorboards I'll be in heaven.
Crumb by Ruby Tandoh - This baking book looks delicious. This is supposed to focus on more "everyday" baking and the flavor combinations look intriguing.(NetGalley)
Food52 Genius Recipes by Kristen Miglore - This is like an all star cookbook. There's recipes from the likes of David Chang, Julia Child, Alice Waters and other James Beard nominated chefs. (NetGalley)
Happy Ali After by Ali Wentworth - Wentworth is inspired by a tweet one morning which leads to an entire project that spirals out of control and sounds hilarious. As someone who can make the simplest multi-step and usually involves color coded spreadsheets I think I can relate to Wentworth! (Edelweiss)
Reading: Hideaway Cove by Anna Sullivan and Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie
Listening: Yes Please by Amy Poehler and I'm loving it. It's actually read by Poehler and she has guest stars. Kathleen Turner is that negative voice in your head and Patrick Stewart reads a haiku about plastic surgery.
Watching: I watched CSI: Cyber the other day and am not sure how I feel about it. The premise is fun and I like the supporting characters. Plus it's pretty funny to watch Dawson be a kick ass FBI Agent. I don't love Patricia Arquette but hopefully she'll grow on me. One more episode involving selling babies and I'm out though.
Off the Blog:
I do not like this winter stuff. We're in week 3 of interrupted schedules. On Thursday we woke up to about 2 inches of little ice pellets which had the courtesy to melt just enough so that they could freeze into one sheet and turn my driveway into an ice skating rink for a few days. However, it's supposed to be in the 50s and 60s this week so I'm hoping we're done with this whole winter thing. We may end up ducking tornadoes but at least it will be different.
All of this out of school is messing with my blogging schedule and my exercising. I signed up for barre3 on Monday and so far I'm loving it! I've done 4 workouts and have really loved them all. They've all been really easy to follow and hard enough that you're somewhat sore but not so hard that you're miserable. Plus at $15/month it's about $80 less than a monthly membership at the Barre Studio a few streets away!
