Sunday Update – June 23, 2019

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

A busy week as we came into the last week of school!

Monday was the last full day of the school year. The kids went to school and I went out to have lunch with a friend. It was so nice to get out! We had lunch at a local pub that I had never been to before. I had some falafel sandwiches, a salad, and parmesan and truffle fries. SO GOOD. The afternoon was chill at home with the kids. We watched The Flash and Supergirl together.

Tuesday was the first of three half days for my kids. I went to physical therapy in the morning and then I went to get veggies in the afternoon with my youngest. We had space squash this past week! Lol. Squash that looked like UFOs and planets. Again, we watched The Flash and Supergirl together in the evening.

On Wednesday, my husband came home from a business trip. We celebrated with cupcakes!

Thursday was the last day of school! I went to PT in the morning and then to the school to be there for the clap-out where we all clap for the graduating 4th graders as they exit the school for the last time. In the afternoon, we celebrated with frozen yogurt! Which has become an annual tradition.

Friday was our first day of summer vacation. We listened to the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone together in the morning, and then had a friend over for a playdate in the afternoon.

Saturday and Sunday were both spent at the pool! I got knitting and writing done both days.

In writing news, I AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING THIS BOOK! But something is missing. I'm pretty sure I know what's missing and what I need to do, but it's a pain. This story just did not come together easily. I'm sure it'll be seamless for readers, but it was still difficult. This week, I need to write the last chapter, go back, read through, plant some more seeds, and then write an additional chapter in the last act to support this change I need to make. THEN IT WILL BE DONE. And I want to be done before we leave on Saturday, so I have all week to fix this. Good thing summer camp starts tomorrow!

What else happened this week?

My husband and I watched a show on NHK World about gyoza, Japanese dumplings, and then I was craving them after. So I had a bunch for dinner one night. No regrets.

Space squash!

The last day of school!

Made Japanese curry and had sake this week. A good pairing.

My knitting was coming along and then I had a yarn malfunction. The dark gray skein totally disintegrated on me! I had to wind it up by hand at the pool.

Harry Potter plus audiobook plus knitting.

Some yummy treats this week. A cupcake and some frozen yogurt.

I'm almost back on the intermittent fasting! I'm working on it during the week and my timing is getting better.

I love this little space in the next town over from me. It almost feels European.

And finally at the pool today, some bright and yummy strawberries and getting my words in!

Have a great week everyone!
