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.
What happened this week?
This was a pretty decent week. It was actually a pretty normal week and went pretty smoothly for the most part. I also didn’t have as much shoulder pain this week and found some exercises that I am going to try for it. I got a lot of work done, as well as a bit of baking, cooking and reading ofcourse.
I finished up my assistant work for this month for my authors and got a good amount of hours still in this week. I also announced my blog posts for authors feature and hope to publish the first post next week. I drafted another blog posts for this as well. I also sent out the media kit for a tour starting next week and dealt with the usual emails as well and sign ups for tours as well.
I also took down the Christmas tree finally. With the weather getting warmer it felt like the right moment to finally take it down. I baked some chocolate chips cookies with both dark milk and white chocolate chips, they taste greta and we still have a few left.
What did I read this week?
Both were great reads. The Amethyst Panda was a re-read for me, this time in audio and I really enjoyed being able to listen to it. The Playmaker was a great young adult contemporary romance book with a bit of a sports theme. I liked the characters and there are some great scenes with them together as well as a fun group of side characters.

CHRISTMAS TREE!!! LOL I would love to keep my tree up all year and change it for the season but I need a bigger house for that. When I do get one, you know I will have a seasonal tree lol.
Glad you are keeping busy. I have been getting busier and I love the distraction but I also have been coming up with lots of ideas that I hope will make me even busier!
Have a great Week, Lola! happy Reading! xx

That is a cool idea to have a seasonal tree and I can so see you doing something like that. I hope you eventually have a bigger house where you can have a seasonal tree.
That’s great to hear you’re busy and coming up with lots of dies too. I hope it all works out well!
I’m so glad that you have been keeping busy and the shoulder hasn’t been giving you too much pain. Perhaps the improvement in the weather is helping! Have a great week, Lola:))
It’s been nice to stay busy and that my shoulder is doing better.
I took down my tree right after Christmas… but I still have the snowflakes up in all my windows. HaHa It might be time to take those down and pack them away for next year.

I like keeping the tree around for a bit longer. That’s fun you still have the snowflakes, it’s still cold anyway ;).
I’m glad to hear that shoulder pain is better.
Cookies sound good right now. Now I might have to make some too. lol

It was nice to have a week with less pain. I hope you made some cookies!
Wow! You just took down the Christmas tree?? That’s so funny! 🤣 I’m not mad about the warmer weather though. I’m sick of the cold and the ice and the snow. Lol.
Glad to hear your shoulder is better! Hope you have a great week! 😊

I like to leave the Christmas tree up for a few months :). I could go for some warmer weather now, although not too warm.
We just took down our tree 2 weeks ago, first we could manage it. But we didn’t put it up until Dec 24th. It feels like you had a good week making some progress on all fronts. Maybe nothing astounding but a routine week moving forward with everything is pretty terrific.

That makes sense you kept the tree around longer if you only put it up right before Christmas. I agree it’s nice having a routine week moving forward :).
I actually know someone who never takes her artificial christmas tree down. Just shoves it into a corner. LOL

That’s funny you know someone who never takes her tree down. I could totally see myself doing that, but after a few months I usually am happy to switch things up again.
Glad your shoulder pain is better! And I like keeping the tree up for a while too. We didn’t this year but we have some years.

I usually keep it up 2-3 months, it’s fun having it around a bit longer especially in the winter. I am happy my shoulder did better this week.
Mmm, cookies. And you still had your Christmas tree up? 🙂 Well, you got it put away before March! Lol.

Yes I still had my tree up, it was nice having it around while it was still so dark in the evenings. It’s so festive, but it’s also nice to have it gone now. The cookies were great!
