Sunday Post header

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 on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

  • Jade’s home! Jade came home on Friday and she’s planning to stay for the foreseeable future since pretty much all of her classes are online. (We pay a lot for room and board, which is pretty useless at this point since she only leaves her dorm room to eat.)
  • Back in (almost) lockdown. Illinois’ COVID numbers have been rising at an alarming rate, so we’re back in what they call tier-3 mitigation, which basically means we’re only supposed to leave if we have to. The kids’ sports have been canceled, which is the biggest change for us. We also figure at this point that our family Christmas get-together is canceled.
  • Reading
    • More reading for the Cybils Awards!
    • I listened to Ember Rising and Ember’s End and started listening to Greenglass House.
    • I read Quintessence, Rival Magic, and The Sisters of Straygarden Place and started reading Water Bears.
  • Working on the office and basement. We did some more work on the new office and put a back on the room divider shelving unit that we bought for the basement (after staining the front and painting the back—it still needs one more quick coat of paint to cover the staples and a few flaws).
  • The Dogs! I actually have zero pictures of the dogs from this week. Bad doggy mom! (But then I gave him a new toy and took one halfway decent pic of him before he ran away from me. LOL!)
