Sunday Update – May 16, 2021


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.


I've been trying (and failing) to update my WP installation today so this update is a little later than usual…

It was a week with a lot of softball. We were supposed to have games on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, but Monday and Saturday's games were canceled. Still, I went to games three nights in a row and got plenty of knitting done!

Unfortunately, my allergies are crazy right now. I spend most days sneezing and then trying to sleep with an itchy throat at night. The Claritin I take daily is doing its job, but the pollen is just so high right now. It's everywhere. It gets in my eyes and in my lungs. My car is especially gross. Ugh. This is the one thing that I do not enjoy about spring.

This week also saw a milestone in weight loss! I have now lost 40 pounds! I'm very happy with how things are going. I'm doing well with the Peloton and I don't feel like I'm missing out on any foods. I eat things in moderation, but I'm fasting longer hours. I'm wondering if I'll hit 45 or 50 pounds lost by the end of the year. We shall see.

I also finished my Pets in Space novella! Then I sent it out to my first readers. I also finished the audiobook for First Flyght! Yay! Lots of finishing energy this week. I started Skylar's Book 1 and I also started the audiobook for Broken Flyght. Getting lots of work done around here.

Softball, softball, and more softball.

Mother's Day! I celebrated with prosecco and reading, lobster, mashed potatoes, and artichokes, and then I got this card from my oldest daughter.

How I break a 20-hour fast…

We harvested spinach from the garden!

Hanging out outside with Lulu.

Lunch outside and then evening drinks on the deck too.

Lulu loves the sun!

And finally, I surpassed 7000 workout minutes on Peloton this week!

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
