The Sunday Post #256 | August 1, 2021


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 share what's coming up on your blog in the week ahead. 
There are now 8 COVID cases at the office (up 6 from a week ago). Since the company began offering $$ for employees to get vaccinated exactly two have taken them up on it. Two. The CEO (my boss) sent out an email Friday putting a lot of restrictions back in place. Break rooms are closed, no in-person meetings, no travel between buildings (we have three right next to each other), etc. Big steps backward.

Locally, it was recently shared that we currently have 851 COVID patients in local hospitals. Of those, 849 are unvaccinated. The other two have serious underlying medical conditions. I mean, what more do people need to hear? If they're unvaccinated you're at risk. And, unfortunately, they put others at risk. It's so discouraging to see the tide turn for the worse and to feel like we're right back where we were a year ago. 

My brother-in-law who broke his hip on the 4th of July and had to have hip replacement surgery has been having some issues and learned this week that they're going to have to re-do the surgery. He'll have to start all over with rehab and recovery. Pretty disappointing. On the plus side, on the day of surgery (probably this coming Thursday) I'll be hanging with my 13 year old niece while my sister and brother-in-law are at the hospital. I'm taking the day off and we'll have to think of something fun to do.

We made two new recipes this week and both were keepers. First up was Apple Bacon BBQ Pulled Pork from EmilyBites. It's delicious but, fair warning, it makes a lot. And next up was a Crustless Ham and Swiss Quiche from Skinnytaste. Super easy and super yummy. Perfect for a lighter weeknight dinner.

This week's 80's music fix is Batdance (1989) by Prince. My younger sister is a huge Prince fan and got to see him live many years ago. A new album of material he recorded several years ago was just released and my sister is over the moon, so this pick is for her. :)
