The Sunday Post #65

Greetings you guys! How are you all doing? I’m just quickly dropping in to say hi and that we miss you all! My Mommy has been on holidays (why can’t we scratch that anymore on WordPress?? Where’ that fun button that just drew a line through what you didn’t intend to say??) / break from school for about 10 days now and it’s been anything but a vacation… Remember a couple of months ago we told you about the renovations coming up at our house? Well, the renovations now turned into a full-scale building project of a rather extensive nature. Let’s make the garage double! Yes, let’s do that. Oh, while we’re at it, why not build an extra room attached to the garage? Yes! Let’s do it! Oh wait, the new garage can actually be a direct passage into the house. How awesome is that! The only thing we […]

The Sunday Post #64

Greetings you guys! We woke up this morning to the most gorgeous weather in Africa – rain. Or actually, to be quite fair – the rest of the country had some good rain since end of last year. It’s just our small part of the universe who missed out. I’m sure some or other witch had something to do with it. It’ almost noon and yes, I am still in bed. Mommy got up now to do my bidding and quickly say hi to all of you. What’s new in your corners of the world? We all know what’s happening in the Ukraine, even us felines are praying and wondering if this dog is going to chase us up a tree or rip our little heads off. Let’s rather talk some books. I think it’s saver. Scratching the Blog Pole We didn’t buy any new books this passed week! Good […]

Greetings you guys! We’ve been meaning to do our Sunday Post since yesterday, but then we got so submerged in our review book, the whole world just came to a standstill. Every now and then, I think to myself: no more review books. Just read what’s on the shelf and on the age-old Kindle.  And then we realize, we truly are blessed to have such wonderful review books fall into our laps and the TBR can wait a bit longer. It’s not going anywhere is it? Our latest read, Letters to Bizzy was nothing but delightful and thought provoking. Can’t wait to blabber on about it tomorrow for a full review. Letters to Bizzy finds a man, John Tibbits, past his prime staring down the barrel of old age, having to come to grips with his mother’s death and regrettable fact his dysfunctional youth has burdened him with a lifetime of […]

Greetings you guys! Aaah it’s so nice to talk to all of you again. My Mommy and Daddy decided to take an impromptu looooong weekend last week. I’m glad that they had a couple of days of rest and we always love staying with our babysitter. My Mommy was planning on catching up with the blog a bit, but the internet reception wasn’t all that well, so she decided to rather just read, relax and miss me terribly, of course. They came back on Monday morning and the rest of this week has been just a bit crazy and busy. I’ve decided that I think it’s time for me to hijack my Mommy’s diary and to start slotting specific times for blogging in her day. Otherwise, she will always remain stuck at school and being distracted with school stuff. Any of you teachers or retired teachers have the same problem? […]

Greetings Humans! You can be ever so lucky that I am on my post today and ready to present you with yet another Sunday Edition. Yes, we have disappeared from the blogosphere for a week or two and I am disappearing to my own secret hiding place on a daily basis from Mondays – Fridays. No idea how long I will have to stay in hiding, but I suspect we count in months and not weeks here. Construction at our house is well on the way and it’s nothing by noise and disturbances and dust. All that dust. Oh how I struggle to keep my fluffy white coat as white as snow. Oh yes, that’s why we were off-line as well. We were literally off line. One of the bulldozers got hold of the Internet Cable and tore at it like a puppy to a sock. It took a couple […]

Greetings you guys! How was your week? My Mommy’s first week of school is done and it was actually fun. She says she thinks it’s going to be a good year after all and she made the right decision to let go of her Special Needs classes. Of course they will always have a piece of her heart and she is very impressed with the lady taking the classes over. She’s actually a wonderful friend too and my Mommy knows all her kiddies are in good hands. She can now focus on her library at school and on blogging and perhaps just spend more time here with us at home. Now that sounds like a brilliant plan to me. The Big Book teaches us that for everything there is a season and if we live by the changing of the seasons, that’s how we grow we most. I’m sure the […]

Oh what a beautiful morning! The sun is out and shining brightly on our little coastal town. My Mommy went for a nice long walk on the beach and then she sat in the sun reading her book. With a hat and sunblock. I believe she’ now just about ready for the new school year to start. Teachers back at school tomorrow and students on Wednesday. Nothing much to tell you on our side regarding the past week. Trying to enjoy the last days of holidays, prepping for school, doing some gardening. Oh yes! And we finally tackled the right sidebar. Everybody happy? What should still be added or removed? Still no feedback from Bloglovin’ regarding the new domain, but we do still keep our profile open for the time being. What have you been up to? adding to the litter My Mommy’s New Year kind-of-resolution to not buy/go slow […]

Happy New Year all you lovely humans! We wish you all the love, happiness, bookshelf space and loads of new books in 2022. You might have noticed that we didn’t do a “best of 2021” post or any form of recap. We are ever so proud of all of you who did it though and our TBR shelf is once again a complete mess from all the books we’ve added. But for us, let’s not talk about 2021, okay? It’s over and behind us now and we are awaiting 2022 in utter anticipation. The other thing we see popping up all over the blogosphere and Bookstagram, is all the exciting reading challenges you guys are planning for the upcoming year. We did manage to finish our 2021 GoodReads challenge and surpassed it with 7 books to give us the amazing total of 87 books! I say amazing here, because that […]

Season Greetings you guys! It’s the season to be jolly for sure. My Mommy is home for the holidays and we don’t have anything waiting to be done urgently or any have to do’s.  Yes, we do plan on sorting out the blog for once and all and then just leave it be. No, we still haven’t received any feedback from Bloglovin regarding the move from Blogger to WordPress that leaves our link not working now. I think I will need to meow in their ears tomorrow again. Thursday was my Mommy’s birthday and what fun we’ve had. For someone who didn’t feel like having a party, she had people here the whole day. I guess that’s what happen if it’s your staff year-end function just the day before your birthday and you tell everyone to come and eat cake and have coffee. She’s a teacher and I would have thought […]

Greetings you guys! How is your Sunday? Good to see South Africa hit the International Head Lines once again. We truly are on a roll here! I just hope that Omicron’s nickname is not going to become The Grinch. Yes, we are safe and okay and we pray that our current vaccines can withstand the test of time. Lots of memes going around the last couple of days again. This one is our favorite: How are things in your bookish lives? My Mommy is trying very hard not to buy any new books and she stays away from all the tempting online sites. We are sooooo far behind on our reading this year, although Goodreads says we are just about done with our highest reading challenge ever. But when we got this one in the inbox, we both squealed with pleasure! Kit and Pearl are back and just in time for […]
