Sunday Update – July 19, 2020


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.


Kinda wondering how many more of these Sunday Updates I can do when there’s literally almost NOTHING going on. Lol.

For some reason, I was in a terrible mood this week. I have no idea why EXACTLY I was in a bad mood, just feeling grumpy and crabby, which is unlike me lately. I think it may have something to do with the second vacation we’ve canceled. We canceled our vacation to see my parents in South Carolina over Spring Break. No surprise there as it was the middle of the major part of the pandemic. Originally, this coming week we were supposed to be in London (and Paris), but that got canceled a few months ago, and instead we were just going to go to South Carolina this week. We’ve canceled that as well. And I’ve heard it’s not a good idea to go to the beaches here either. They’re crowded and no one is social distancing. So there’s no vacation in sight. Pretty sure that’s what’s got me down.

At home, we’ve just been getting through each day as best we can. I’m reading a great book right now and editing CRASH LAND ON KURAI. I started a new knit too since the other one I started was not working out for me. My husband and I finished watching FAUDA. I’m taking the dog for walks, and the bathroom renovation is coming along, bit by bit, every day.

I bought this yarn from my friend, Aimee, who lives and works in Paris. If we had gone to UK/Europe this week like we wanted to, I would be seeing her in the flesh. Alas, that is not going to happen. Instead I will knit with her yarn.

Oh wait. I remember why I’ve been in a bad mood. I think this was Monday or Tuesday. I accidentally knocked over a huge glass of iced tea on the counter and it went in every damned drawer on the way down. I had to take everything out and clean it all. Took me almost two hours, when really, I only had 30 minutes for tea and a snack. Ruined my entire day.

The bathroom is coming along. We have walls now!

My girls and I love our Crocs. Yes. I know people hate them and think they’re ugly but I DO NOT CARE.

Look at my happy Lulu, playing at daycare!

When the cactus shows up on the forecast, you know you’re in trouble.

I tried to work outside when it was nice out. In the shade, of course.

And here’s a flashback photo to when I was in… Hmmm… Maybe 8th grade? I’m with all my cousins and my brother here (that’s me all the way on the right). We had a family vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. One of the better family vacations ever.

I hope you all have a great week! Stay safe and healthy!
