The Sunday Post ~ 9/6/20

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~

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.

******************************************

Personal Highlights:

This was our visitor that decided to hang out with us for a while this week. We’ve seen a lot of snakes this past week, which is really odd. Normally we only see this many in the spring to early summer months. But, fortunately they were all harmless snakes, and we let them go. They remove some of the other critters we don’t want around. I wish my camera would have captured the colors of this guy better. He’s got bright neon green stripes, and is neat to look at if snakes don’t completely freak you out. LOL! Living in the woods we are pretty good at identifying the bad ones, but with a pond it can be difficult to tell the difference between the water snakes and water moccasins.

With the cooling off we’ve had, we spent Friday evening hanging out on our porch with my mom. I’m so enjoying having all my kids here together. I know come spring when my oldest transfers from community college to university, that I won’t be seeing so much of him.

  1. I had to cruise on past the snake pic. LOL The get-together sounds like a lot of fun. It’s great to be able to enjoy those time before your son leaves for college. I’m so glad your enjoying Where the Lost Wander. My husband and I read that one together and loved it.

    • LOL! I totally understand! And yes, family time is very precious right now. While my oldest is still at home right now, he’s still taking a full load of online classes this semester and working, so I don’t get to see a whole lot of him. I finished Where the Lost Wander. Soooo good, but definitely not an easy read. I’ll have to suggest it to my husband. I bet he’d really enjoy it, too.

  2. Ooh, I can’t do snakes. I just… *shudder* no… But that is a small cute looking snake, I guess? Haha looks like you had a great week/end 🙂 That cover for Heart Bones is so colourful and eye-catching, and it’s been a while since I read some CoHo, so I think I’d definitely like to check it out. Hopefully, it’s on KU!

    • Hope you get to visit with some family soon!! I tend to give snakes a wide berth, too. This particular one is super easy to identify from a distance, so I don’t fret too much about it. My oldest will pick them up without any hesitation, though. But, he is currently going to school to get his environmental science degree and hoping to be a park ranger one day.

  3. Yikes at least the snakes are mostly harmless where you are at… It brings back flashbacks of when I was living on the edge of the jungle in Puerto Iguazu and there were plenty of poisonous and deadly ones creeping around to worry about. o.O You make me want to cancel my reading plans and pick up the new CoHo! Have a great week. xx

    • We do have a few venomous snakes around here that we have to watch for, but fortunately we haven’t seen any of those recently. I bet you had all sorts of things you had to watch for living on the edge of the jungle! Hope you have a great week, too!!

  4. Glad to know you are enjoying your time with your children. And your visitors are something – I will not know what I would do if I see snakes on our tiny house! Good luck on your books. I can imagine how relaxing it is to read in the woods!

  5. Love the cooler weather, and have been working on my patio for the last few days. I love it! You are so lucky to have all your kids home. I am jealous. I don’t even remember what my kid looks like. I want to read the new CoHo. Everyone is loving it.

    • I am definitely super thankful! I know only have about 6 months left before my oldest will be off. I’m already dreading it, but super proud of him. I know you are so looking forward to the time with your daughter!! And I hope you love Heart Bones, too, once you get to it!

    • We had two brief storms roll through, but we’ve been staying mostly in the 80s for the last several days and we’re supposed to be in the 70s by the end of the week. I can’t wait!!! My son is mostly online this semester, too. He has one lab that he’ll have to go in for on occasion. He’s working 3 -8 hr days a week, too, though. But, depending on how all the COVID stuff goes, he will be transferring to LA Tech in the spring. That’s about an hour and a half from here, so he’ll have to stay on campus. At least he’ll still be close enough to visit regularly. I hope the weather is working towards cooling off for y’all, too, this week!

  6. Love seeing Heart Bones as your favorite this week!
    It’s so nice you got that moment with your family. I had one last night with my sister’s family and my parents at in my sister’s backyard. I don’t like thinking about winter and how it will be harder to get together as the weather gets worse.

    • Yes, Heart Bones was just awesome! I’m so glad you got that time with your family. I hope winter doesn’t put too big of a damper on y’all. That’s one thing about being in the south – it’s a rare thing for winter to get in the way of anything. The extreme heat of our summers is usually the bigger adversary here.
