My Sunday Post #57



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
I'm also linking up to Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Review this week.



This week went by so fast. Monday my job closed early because of inclement weather. Tornado watches and warnings. We are a little more cautious about weather here since the April 2011 tornado. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing, in the hallway on the phone with a friend that was checking to see if I was okay. She was watching the weather on the news and she could see exactly where it was and as it was headed to my direction our conversation cut out. It's path changed but she didn't know that. The rest of the week has been nice weather with a little chill. My aunt has been home for a week and she's doing okay but has some pain and discomfort. Om another note, I stumbled across a page that I had written in 2012, it seemed like I was thinking about a story at the time but 2018 me has no idea where 2012 me was going with it. However, when I have time to sit down I will if that spark is still there.

  3. Tornados can be so scary. We had one close by when I was a kid and it scared the crap out of me lol. Not fun...

    Good luck to your aunt, hope all goes well.

  4. I hope the spark is still there. If not, try candlelight and champagne. That usually works with my good ideas.

  8. I am glad to hear the weather turned out to be not as bad as they forecasting. Ive never been through a tornado, so I only imagine how scary that would be. Where I grew up, we had hurricanes, but no major ones like they’ve had recently. Enjoy the new books. I really enjoyed Come from away. :) Have a great week.

  9. I don't know if I could live in an area with tornadoes. That's the one thing Mother Nature does that scares me. I'm glad to hear your aunt is still doing well. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

    1. I've lived in this area my whole life and used to be able to sleep through them because they'd never hit here but now it's different. Thanks.

    1. Thanks, I hope to finish To Kill a Kingdom tonight and decide what to read next.

  14. YES! Someone else reading Written in Red. It's such a wonderful series. And of course, I want everyone to enjoy it as much as I did. I still need to read the 5th one and then start the spin-off. Stay safe - storms scare me so I feel for anyone who lives with them or has been through a horrible one.
