Sunday Post #39: Nice weather & good reading…

Posted by Jenea @ Jenea's Book Obsession in Sunday Post / 43 Comments


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. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!


I just wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words about the problems we’re going though, it meant a lot to me. 😘 It’s gonna be a long road, but I know that it all work out.

It turned out to be a pretty good week. We got our son all set up to take the courses he needs to. Whew! Our daughter (homeschooled) has only about a week worth of school work to do, so she’ll get to start her summer break a little early. That means when I can’t find my iPad, I know where to look for it too. She takes off with it all the time. Lol.. This week will be a little hectic with Dr’s appts, I am happy that I am ahead on scheduling post. The weather has been nice, had a few severe thunderstorms and nasty wind, but No Snow. Yay!

Blog wise, it was a good week. I got some new goodies, and found a few on Amazon too. I managed to read 5 books this week too! I hope I can do that again this week too. 🙂 But we shall see… Haven’t watched much T.V. This week, but I need to binge watch Siren soon. I’ve been trying to avoid spoilers on FB and Twitter. So, that I think that is about it for me.

How was everyone’s week?

    That’s great that your son is all set with the classes he needs… and your daughter will be finishing up early. Everyone is on the right track, it seems. Reading 5 books in a week… teach me your ways! LOL Seeing the new Lauren Layne reminds me that it’s been too long since I’ve read one of hers. Need to fix that soon. LL is always good for a lighter/fun read.

  2. Angela

    Looks like you got some great new additions! Glad the weather is getting nicer for you, it is finally starting to feel like spring here!

  3. Greg

    Ooh I watched the first episode of Siren, and it wasn’t bad! I need to keep going, right now I’m watching The Chalet on Netflix and that’s pretty good. And I can relate to the iPad problem lol.

    Yay for 5 books!

  4. Sam@WLABB

    I have been watching Siren. That show is sort of crazy, but I like it. Oooh, you got the new Lauren Layne book. I am definitely a solid fan of her’s now.

  5. Laura Thomas

    I too want to start watching Siren. I’m in the mood for some binge watching. LOL Happy to hear this has been a good week for you and your daughter and son are doing well too. Enjoy those new reads!

    I remember when my son used to hide my keys, so thank goodness you know where to find your iPad these days.(lol) Yay that things are working out on the school front for the kiddies. I’ve been sick and working on other projects and have been away from my blog, but I sure hope everything in your life is working out for you guys! Hugs…RO

  7. Nick

    Glad to hear things are going well with the kids. Funny how you know your daughter will run away with the iPad! 😀
    It’s been cold and windy here, but thankfully no snow as some parts of the US. I hope you have a good week and happy reading!

    I am jealous.. I want spring to be here also. We had one nice day then it went back to the 30’s again. Grrrr.. Looks like you got some good books!

  9. Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    WOW, five books – the most I have read in a week is 3. Good for you tho. Sorry, about the issues going on and hopefully this week will be better. Great haul. I did visit the library this week but they didn’t have the book I wanted to read in. Maybe next week. Happy reading!


  10. Rachel

    Glad to hear your family is doing better. Kids love iPads and they know how to work them from an early age! I’d like to check out the new Lauren Layne book. Have a great week Jenea! 🙂

  11. Literary Feline

    I am glad you had a good week. Sending you hugs and lots of positive vibes! Your new books all look good! I hope you enjoy them. I hope you have a good week!

    Good to hear this week has been an easier one – it’s always a relief when the children are settled. I home-tutor and you always cover far more ground than can be achieved with a full class, because it’s far more concentrated and intense. That’s probably why your daughter is ahead:). Congratulations on reading 5 books – that’s impressive and I hope you have another easier week coming up, Jenea:)

  13. Samantha

    Yay for finishing school early! I bet she is excited! Great that you got your son signed up for what he needs as well. And you got some good books this week! Hooray!!

  14. Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra

    That’s great that your son is all set up with the courses he needs and even better that your daughter will finish school early. I’m sure she’s excited about that 🙂

    Looks like you got some great new reads this week. A River in Darkness sounds like it should be very interesting.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  15. Jen Ryland

    I’m glad things are going better for you this week. I’m happy that your son is set up with classes and hope that is better situation for him. You’re a great mom to always have his back!And yes this beautiful spring weather (where I am at least) is cheering me up a bit!

    I’m glad that you had a great week Jenea, I definitely need to up my game when it comes to reading books, I just don’t seem to be feeling anything though! Anyway I hope you have another great week 🙂

    I hate that you and your son had to go through all that shit with the school. Our local high school may not be the greatest, but the staff are pretty decent. My son was going to a therapist for 2 yrs to treat anger management when he had a crisis and it turns out he’s schizoaffective. He was only a few months from graduation, so they worked closely with us to ensure he could graduate with his class and not be stressed out which could trigger a crisis. They were wonderful to work with and I’m sorry you and your son didn’t have the support you needed. I know it won’t always be so (from firsthand experience with my son’s ups and downs), but {{{posivibes}}} that you guys will have a relatively smooth road ahead.

    It’s hard keeping kids away from screens! I have trouble with my step-kids who are addicted to the point where they think about screens all day, even when they’re doing something entertaining. I’m finally deciding to limit screen-time to 2 hours a day. They both behave so much better when screen time is limited. It’s shocking.

    Anyway, I meant that more as a comment about my own life rather than one about your daughter and your ipad. Nothing wrong with screens when they are not an unhealthy addiction. I’m looking at one right now!
