#TheSundayPost A Little This, A Little That


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.  See rules here: Sunday

This past week has been a busy week! Lots of driving youngest child and oldest child to their summer jobs. Youngest child is getting her license on Tuesday, if she passes the driving test.  Fingers crossed. I will say it has been nice to spend one on one time with her in the car, albeit very stressful for me as the passenger! 

I've finished week one of my Marathon Training and today I learned that I need to figure out a better  pre-run light breakfast because today my energy was sapped too early. Also it was H*O*T. I was really happy to enjoy a post run swim in my little pool. Should you have any interest you can check my fundraising page for Imerman Angels here. 

My garden is growing well (knock on wood) I am implementing less watering than I did last year because in The Beginner's Guide to Growing Great Vegetables the author talks about if you water your plants too much they can grow shallow roots, but if you water a little sparingly, then they will grow deep roots. So that's the plan!

I have also been doing a good job with working on my cozy mystery by participating in Jami Attenberg's #1000wordsofsummer each day and I am participating in a virtual writing group via Gilda's Club so I do not have my book reviews planned out very well at all for the upcoming week. 

I will be sharing my thoughts on this book that I picked up from Net Galley:

What have you been up to? How was your week? 


  1. Good luck with your writing! And good luck to your daughter on her driving test. Went through that recently myself :)

  2. I've been running again, too. My best one was 15K years ago, but I think that now my shape and condition is the worst it's ever been.

    I'm almost back to 5K and will be running this afternoon :)

    Good luck with the marathon!

  3. I hope your daughter passes her drivers test! ;)
    And Reading Between The Crimes looks so pretty!
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  4. My daughter is working on getting her driver's license this summer too. The one on one is great, but yep, being in the passenger seat makes me nervous at times! Enjoy your week.

  5. It sounds like a fun and productive week for you. I hope I can get back to more walking with my back/ hip improving. And swimming! We just bought new suits and hopefully we can go when it's not too packed.

  6. I can understand being the stressed out passenger. Been there. And I am going to check out the gardening link right out. I am a fresh out gardener here.

  7. We'll have the pleasure of being tense passengers from next year. Lol! Oh, the life of a parent.
    I'm glad to hear that #1000wordsofsummer is helping with your writing, Victoria.
    Hope you have a lovely week. x

  8. Good luck to your daughter. The cozy mystery book looks good. I hope you have a great week!

  9. I want to get back to walking 3-5 miles a day like I did about 10 years ago. To lose weight and just to have more energy. But it's just too hot outside. Oh well. Hope you are having a good week!

  10. I hope your daughter passed her driving test and your marathon training is going well. Reading Between the Crimes sounds good. I love a good cozy mystery. Have a great weekend!
