The Sunday Post #60


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by 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 your blog in the week ahead. You can find the info here:

  • It's been a week of almost daily thunderstorms here - some of them intense. Not exactly uncommon in Florida, plus the rain is much needed. But it's made for some less-than-fun daily commutes.
  • Due to the eye infection I mentioned last week, I spent all this week wearing glasses and forgoing all eye makeup. Today should be the last day of the gunky, messy medicine and I am so looking forward to tomorrow when I can pop in my contacts and put on some eye makeup!
  • Friday night we went to a comedy club to see John Caparulo. I've always enjoyed hearing him on the SiriusXM comedy channels and seeing him perform live was so much fun.
  • Last night we tried to attend the local minor league baseball game. More storms rolled in, game kept getting delayed, and we finally decided to call it a night. Got totally drenched on the trek from the stadium to the car. We can trade in the tickets for another game this season so maybe we'll try again. Gotta love those Florida storms!

  6. Oh, I fondly remember the Florida rainy season from when I lived in Jacksonville. I also remembering getting my car detailed a lot, because I would forget to close my sunroof and those quick storms would come through. I loved Dimple and Rishi, and I really want to read the Player. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on those.

    1. You used to live in Jax? That's where I am! (Have we discussed this before?? If so, I'm drawing a blank.) But yeah, summer in FL means storms... they go hand in hand. :) When Dimple Met Rishi was so adorable. I'm hoping to have a review up by the end of the week. And I'm excited for The Player. I've read two others by Contreras and enjoyed them.

    2. OMG! I loved JVille! I lived in Jax Beach. I miss that place so much. The northeast isn't much better these days. We are on flash flood warning right now. It's so humid, I felt like I was swimming through the air, and we keep having massive downpours. I read the Hearts books, and really liked them. I am definitely a fan of Contreras's stories.

  7. I'm also in Florida and these storms are quite redundant. It's great after that drought but my toddler and I are stuck inside all the time and going outside is miserable once it stops. The humidity slays me. I prefer to be outside so it's bugging me. Haha.
    I hope you have a wonderful week! Happy reading! :)

    1. Hi Stacy! Oh yeah, I imagine being stuck indoors with a little one due to the storms gets old fast. Then of course afterwards it's nice and steamy. Ugh! I've lived in FL all my life so you'd think I'd be used to it but I don't think there's any getting used to the insane humidity. Hope you have a great week, too!

  8. Sounds like you're getting slammed with storms down there! We've had a few strong ones on and off this week- last night a big one rolled through- but yeah no fun to drive in. Hope your eye is doing better- I always go a little batty when I can't wear my contacts!

    Given to the Sea sounds really good. And love the penguin graphic!

    1. Yep, it's been almost daily with the storms but that's almost typical for this time of year.
      Contacts back in as of this morning. Hallelujah! LOL

  9. Hope your eye is better...those infections are miserable. And no eye makeup? I'd have a hard time leaving the house lol. I've seen When Dimple Met Rishi on lots of blogs and I really want to read it! Love the penguin pic...too cute! Have a great week :)
    Here's my Sunday Post :)

  12. We've also been having serious storms here, and the rain's needed, so it's been scary but great!! Thunderstorms mean curling up in bed with a book and coffee, right?!

    Looking forward to your When Dimple Met Rishi review! I've heard amazing things about that book :)

    Hope you have a lovely week ahead, Tanya! <3
