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):
- Writing. I started working on my final (I think) round of revisions before I send the manuscript off to my agent, which I hope to do by the end of the year.
- What I Read:
- I read Legacy: Women Poets of the Harlem Renaissance by Nikki Grimes, When We Make It by Elisabet Velasquez, and Roxy by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman.
- I continued listening to The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of September 11, 2001 by Garrett M. Graff.
- What I Watched:
- I’ve gotten back to season 2 of The Amazing Race now.
- Also still watching season 11 of Married at First Sight.
- Our whole family watched The Biggest Little Farm. My daughter watched this documentary in her AP Environmental Science class and enjoyed it so much that she said we should all watch it together. It was really interesting to see how they worked to get this self-sustainable farm going!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
