The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.
This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
Vacation! I’m actually gone right now since I left for our trip to the Ozarks on Friday. This post is up late this week because I thought it was scheduled, but I guess I never actually hit the schedule button–oops!
I have a couple things scheduled while I’m gone, but for the most part, don’t expect to see me around the blogosphere until I get back on August 9th. (Actually, I’m technically back on the evening of the 8th, but I’m doubting I’ll manage to get a Sunday Post up next week.)
- What I Read:
- I continued reading Paola Santiago and the Forest of Nightmares by Tehlor Kay Mejia.
- I continued listening to The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi.
- TV We Watched:
- Supernatural. Still on season 14!
A series of pictures in which Digit tries to get me to stop reading and pay attention to him.
(He is usually successful.)
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- July 2021 Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up & Giveaway
- What’s Inside a Flower?, Women in Science, and Women in Sports by Rachel Ignotofsky: Review & Giveaway

Have a lovely vacation!
I hope your vacation is lovely and safe. Digit just gets cuter all the time.
Oh nice! Have fun! At least it’s a wee bit cooloer this week! 80s instead of 100s so good timing! 😉
Here’s my Monday Wrap-up
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
Have fun!! And Digit is the cutest! How is he so big already?!
Those photos of Digit are adorable! I hope you have a great time on vacation. 🙂
And I almost forgot this month was my Blogoversary. LOL Sheesh, I’m out of it. I need to plan something!
Enjoy your vacation!
Have fun on your vacation. Of course Digit is adorable. Falcor will do something like that to me. But he’s small enough to just crawl into my lap.
Digit looks hilarious. “Hey mom, what’s this thing that keeps you from giving me the time of day? It doesn’t even smell good” ?.
Have a great time on your vacation!
