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:
Beautiful Exiles by Meg Waite Clayton - This an author I've seen around for ages and always meant to try. When I was offered this historical fiction about the relationship between Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn. I'm really looking forward to it! (Publicist)
Selling Dead People's Things by Duane Scott Cerney - The cover of this one is a bit disturbing but the book itself is a nonfiction about estate sales and appraisers and antique stores. I spend a decent amount of time going to antique stores and have spent some time at estate sales so I'm curious about the behind the scenes look. (NetGalley)
Reading: A Howl of Wolves by Judith Flanders and Ghost Night by Heather Graham
Listening: Nothing right now. I'm next in line for an audio book at the library and until then I'm listening to podcasts. Luckily my backlist is HUGE so there's no shortage of things to listen to!
Watching: Not much really. I'm not loving this season of Dancing with the Stars which is my favorite indulgence. The shortened season which means constant double eliminations which I don't enjoy and I feel like I don't get to know the celebrities which is kind of the whole point along with lots of sparkles. I think we're going to go back to watching the original Star Trek movies soon because despite Shatner's dubious acting they are a lot of fun.
Off the Blog:
We are in end of the school year madness which means the Tornado and I are both exhausted and sunburned. It was Field Day Friday and I volunteered to help run a station which meant I had to project instructions over the voices of lots of kids of various ages for about 4 hours. I may get my voice back in the next few days we'll see. The Tornado had a blast and while I did try and swipe sunscreen on him every time I saw him I didn't get his face very well. I'm slightly scorched which surprised me. The whole school was outside all day playing games and running around and playing water games and eating snowcones. It was fun but that followed by a very loud chaotic birthday party Saturday makes me want a nap!
I'm signing the Tornado up for tennis lessons so we're going to meet the instructor today and the Little Passports subscription box shipped so it should be here this week. I'm super excited to start getting the boxes from different countries and think it'll be a fun addition to summer. Other than that we've got a few weekend trips and I think we're going to get a few lazy days in early on.
This coming week is Eleanor's birthday but we celebrated with her Friday. It's been quite a big year for her with the wedding right after last birthday and the birth of the little one just a few weeks ago. We brought dinner and cupcakes and presents to her house and I got lots of baby snuggles so it was a fun night. He's 6 weeks old and is so expressive and adorable! I've gotten to babysit some which is always fun.
