The Sunday Post #55

 

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead 
 

So brother is home from the hospital after an 8 day stay and while they don't have a diagnosis yet he's got more appointments in the next couple of weeks to see what's wrong.
I didn't manage to make it into my garden last week but I'm hoping to this week, and we've got some major spring cleaning planned for the week as well. Later on today the Mister and I are going to head to our local used bookstore where they're having a $1 sale and I have $18.00 in credit I plan on using.
 
I hope you all have a great week!

  9. That period of time when you are watching tests and things being done and not knowing anything is pure hell. I've been through that recently as well so my thoughts are with you. I hope you get some good news and a swift diagnosis x

    1. Thanks Lark, getting out to the bookstore was a great stress relief especially since the mister treated me to an iced coffee and a donut just like he used to when we first got together.

  16. Have fun at the used book store sale! Those things are so dangerous but so fun! Glad to hear your brother is out of the hospital and I hope they figure out the problems soon. Looks like you got some great books - I'm intrigued by Hyde, A Paris Apartment and Netherwood. I've been wanting to read Dreams of Gods and Monsters and try Elly Griffiths for ages. Have a great week!
