Stacking The Shelves and Sunday Post



This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Team Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows:

"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!"




Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme


One down and one to go!

I finished the painting in my older daughter's bedroom. As you can see here, the ceilings are back to white and the colour she chose is a bluish-grey which contrasts nicely with the silver blackout curtains (yeah, I know, they need to be pressed - LOL! I just wanted to get them hung up to see what they looked like):



After finishing off that bedroom, I rented a lakefront cottage for a few days and my older daughter invited a friend along. We stopped at this remote beach on the way there and back, which was very nice and deserted:



And here was the view from our cottage. I really should have taken more pics in the daylight:







It was a great little getaway, and we enjoyed canoeing, kayaking, and paddle-boating. It was so nice to be totally unplugged. Even though I really didn't get much reading in at all, it was great to spend time soaking up the sun and having fun with the kids! I've always been a water-baby, and I'm totally in my element at the beach. I found it very calming.

Today, I am starting the painting on my younger daughter's bedroom!


I bought a couple more audiobooks at Audible's 2-for-1 sale - more new to me authors to try:


The Sound of Glass
by Karen White


Northern Lights
by Nora Roberts


I received this audiobook for review:


Heart on Fire
by Amanda Bouchet
(Kingmaker Chronicles, Book #3)

Thanks again, Recorded Books!

  2. The cottage looks adorable and look at the view! Ha, I have hung a curtain before pressing to see if it fits properly. No point in doing all that extra work!
