The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
This week has been so COLD! I’m a Texan and I do NOT like the cold weather, so I’m a bit moody of late. Especially since I’m currently training for a 5k and have to go outside 3 x a week to do my walk/jogs. I was planning to spend a good part of my day yesterday inside reading, but things did not go as planned. We had a wee-bit of a fire. Not to be overly dramatic, but it was scary and quite a hassle. I woke up yesterday morning to my fire alarm going off and couldn’t figure out why. There was no fire that I cold see. But there was no denying that our apartment was quickly filling with smoke, and that ALL the fire alarms were going off. So, we got out of the apartment and had to call 911. As it turns out, when the maintenance staff had come two days earlier to fix our heater (which they hadn’t actually fixed BTW) they had put duct tape ON a heater coil! Who does that? Anyway that tape caught on fire and we had a little bit of a heater fire. Thankfully it didn’t spread! However, the fire department left everything taken apart because apartment maintenance had to come fix it. That was all over around 10 am and apartment maintenance didn’t show up until about 4 (despite frequent calls – I couldn’t even take a shower because of the mess!) Anyway, that pretty much ruined my Saturday and I hope to spend most the day today reading, though the place still kinda smells like smoke, so I may try to get out a bit. We’ll see.
As for the blog, don’t forget that signups are currently open for COYER in March! Get details and signup here. Also, we’ve got a couple hosts solidified, but if you’d like to host a mini challenge, just email me 🙂
Also I’m super excited about a feature that will hopefully be a monthly thing – it will be coming later this month. The feature – called “Was it good for you? – is going to be me, Michelle @ Because Reading and Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads talking and getting all excited (maybe even argumentative? who knows? lol) about a book we all read. I’m very excited about it – so be on the look outs for that later this month!
That’s it for me! Stay warm!
