The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post
Hosted by:

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

Happy Sunday! 
The weather has been all over from days when it's to cold to sit outside to days it's to hot to sit outside. I'm hoping we don't have a super hot summer but I have a feeling it's only going to get hotter here in Northern California. It's been a busy but quiet week which is nice but not enough reading. 

Currently 73 of 250 and 20 books behind which keeps growing. 

Posts you may have missed at TRD this week or the prior since it's two weeks this week.

I also made a very good Street Corn Soup.

My little garden is slowly growing more and more each day. My husband picked our first tomato it is a cherry so my little one claimed it. I can't wait to have another one to try. 

I was on a roll the last few months but thanks to the puppy my sleep cycle is wonky but I'm hoping to get back in the groove this week.

  1. Defy the Stars has a beautiful cover, but I'm unsure about Claudia Gray. I didn't love her Firebird series so I'm putting off picking this one up for now. Hope you enjoy your new books! Have a great week!

  2. Your brownies look amazing :) boyfriend baked us a lemon drizzle cake! So I'm also happy. Yup, he does the baking (and cooking) in this house.
    Also your soup looks awesome. I may check out that recipe!
    Oh yeah, I also planted little tomato seedlings today! It's only the spring here, so no fruit yet, but I'm hopeful :)

  3. Weather has been so crazy I haven't done my garden yet. If I don't get a chance to do it in the next 3 weeks I might have to grab a few potted tomato plants. I love Jersey tomatoes :)

    Have a great week, Mandy! Happy Reading!

  4. Wow! You were sure busy this week and glad that you purchased Geekerella!
