Sunday Post Weekly Wrap & Fitreaders

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? badge for Sunday Post
Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading? While this  meme is not fully active at present I am linking up as well to the Sunday Post at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Quiet week - went off again to Playcentre to watch over my two year old gran niece.  Turns out my niece's course will last quite a few more weeks, so looks like I'll be going longer than expected. A good education to be there!  Memo to self wear older clothes! My biggest shock this week was to look across the table and see another two year old with a mouth full of paint!  I signalled my alarm! I wasn't sure if it was edible - turns out it isn't! 

I practised my quilting - turns out it's not as easy as it might look!   So I have revised my expectations and set myself lots of practice.

Met my goal this week of 46200 steps this week. Yay. Best day was Monday with 10 479 steps and lightest day was Thursday with just over 3000. Always motivating to be doing this along with other readers.

Posts from the last week:


  1. You are doing so well with the walking! I really must do something soon....sigh.

    Enjoy your books, and I hope to read The Lake Season soon. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Laurel now I am thinking stretching, I am very stiff from the reading and computer. Must do it!! I liked The Lake Season.

  2. A mouthful of paint- yikes! That would be alarming. :) Hope the reads are good, Amy Snow looks nice.

    1. Yes I was alarmed!! So used to 10 -13 year olds that 2 year olds are a bit of a stretch! Amy Snow turned out to be a good historical.

  3. Yay, well done on the steps. I find I'm walking so much more since I started using my fitbit and I love it! And reporting them on my Sunday Post is another great incentive to keep them high :)

  4. Good job with the FitReaders; keep it up!
    Amy Snow sounds interesting from the tagline on the cover, I'll look forward to your review and it's US publication.
    I would think a play place for tiny children would have safe paint; I remember when I was in elementary school there were kids who would eat the thick paste that came in big tubs!

  5. Amy Snow has a such a pretty cover! Just seeing that made me want to read it :) Have a lovely Sunday!

  6. Week after week I say I'm going to start walking or get a fitbit and I'm yet to do so. I've put on SO much weight since my seachange it's ridiculous (30+kg) and I already needed to lose some before that.

    I know the smallest walk will make me feel better so I really need to get my act into gear!


  7. I just finished reading The Marriage Season - great end to the trilogy! I also just finished listening to The Summer Girls - I really enjoyed it! Now I'm listening to Lucinda Riley's Seven Sisters - this first in her new series - it's quite good.

    Have a great week!

  8. Linda Lael's books are fun! Hope you enjoyed it. Have a great week!

  9. I've been wanting to read Laura Lael Miller for awhile. I've heard great things about her. Anything involving 2 year olds and paint sounds exhausting! Have a great week!

  10. Great job with your fitness goals! I am such a couch potato. I joined FitReaders too but haven't posted since February.

    Quilting sounds really hard. I can't sew though I did try to learn as a teen. It is a popular past time in the area I live in with all the Amish and Mennonites here.

    Amy Snow looks really interesting. It probably won't be published here in the States unless we are lucky. I've heard good things about The Lake Season and hope you enjoy it.

  11. Awesome accomplishment with your walking. I had to do some unexpected work and used muscles that hadn't been used in quite some time. I went and walked all over Walmart to loosen up:)

    Liking your new books too. I've heard good stuff about The Lake Season. Looks like everybody has!

    My Sunday Post -

  12. Excellent week of activity. The mouth full of paint made me chuckle, as my grandson is turning 1 in a couple of weeks and I know we are in for some craziness. Have a wonderful week.

  13. Always unexpected with little ones. Enjoy your reads and have a good week.

  14. Enjoy the fun times with your gran niece Kathryn, the little one's sure keep us on our toes. I've found myself doing doggie poop patrol a couple of times per week, Mia loves exploring outside and I'd prefer not to see her with a mouthful of poop lol. My eldest (Mia's dad) ate dog poop when he was around 12 months and survived, obviously haha but I was torn between gagging and wanting to scrub his tongue and teeth with dettol.

    Looking forward to your review of Amy Snow. I'm hoping to have a quieter week, more time for blogging and visiting. Well done on hitting your step target ... I did too this week!

    1. Oh my goodness! Not heard of doggie poop one but probably happens oftener than we hear of. Heard of another 6mth old gran niece her sampled her own! Laughing at the dettol, that would be me too, but would probably be more dangerous! What humans survive!

  15. I just got The Lake Season - are you enjoying it? I hope so! Great job meeting your step goal for the week!!

  16. Looks like you've had another great week. It must have been a shock to see the child with a mouthful of paint!

  17. I hope the child with paint is okay! Enjoy your time with your gran niece. Several lovely reads in a good genre mix! Happy Reading.

  18. Kids eat the strangest things :)
    The cover of Amy Snow is gorgeous , I hope it is as good to read as it looks.
    Congrats on meeting your fit bit goal.

    Have a great week
