The Sunday Post #68

Posted April 17, 2022 by elzaread in The Sunday Post / 43 Comments

Greetings you guys! I trust you are all enjoying a wonderful Easter Weekend? My Mommy is terribly upset, her favorite easter eggs are nowhere to be found in our little town. Easter without you easter eggs just don’t feel right at all and something is definitely amiss.

So now we spend our time reading, blogging and diamond painting. We had a very good week here on the blogosphere and my Mommy actually deserves those easter eggs. We didn’t even buy any new books or downloaded any for free. We also didn’t get any new ones for review, but that is also okay. We are just starting to gain control over our TBR and ARC lists. The only thing we don’t have control over, are the easter eggs.

Scratching the Blog Pole

 

On the Couch

We’ve reviewed all our recently read books and the reviews are listed above. We are currently reading Arthur and the Argonauts for Reedsy Discovery (you can find us there! Let us know if you are also a Reedsy Discovery reviewer) and listening to Project Hail Mary while doing our Diamond Painting. It’s really, really good.

The reason we’ve managed to do 2 reviews on Friday, was all thanks to Moonfall.Daddy wanted to watch it and Mommy tried to. For about 15 minutes. Then she pulled the laptop closer. If you haven’t seen it, please don’t bother! Rather read a book. It’s a serious heap of cat litter.

What have you been doing this Easter Weekend? Did you get your easter eggs?

Have a good week everyone!

  1. Ha, I love your post. Were you looking for already colored eggs or decorative eggs? When my kids were little I helped them dye the hard boiled eggs but I usually wound up cracking some since I’m not very good at boiling the eggs!
    I’m glad to hear Project Hail Mary is interesting. I’ve been considering it.
    And can you explain what a diamond painting is to this craft-challenged person?

    • Hi Mia!

      Glad to hear you are enjoying our posts! I was looking for chocolate candy coated eggs. You normally get boxes of them, but this year there is just nothing….!

      Oooh you should Google Diamond Dot Painting. It’s the best craft ever invented and always soooo pretty!!!

      Thanks for visiting us Mia, I hope you will have a good week.

  2. It sounds like you had a great week! I love that you multitask while watching a movie that really doesn’t interest you – this is so me! Have a wonderful week!

    • Hi Jodie!

      I’m not a very good tv person all over. I normally sit and blog or knit or something when watching tv and will only ONLY watch tv when it really captures my attention. Moonfall was seriously crappy so I just switched off completely and managed to do a whole book review! LOL!!

      Thanks for the visit and have a good week ahead!

  3. Happy Easter! But awww about the Easter eggs. My niece was over to visit (she’s 11) so some Easter egg coloring was had as well. It’s been a while! I hope you had a wonderful holiday…

    I need to go comment on that Hardy Boys review! Are you going to be sharing more?

    I really hate Jane Austen rewrites or continuations or whatever. The other things you wrote sound interesting. I hope you found some Easter Eggs that you did like.

    best… mae at maefood.blogspot.com

    • Hi Mae! This was my first Jane Austen tie-in or call it whatever you want. I have to give a lot of credit to the author, her writing style was really good and it fit the time period well. I still don’t like Jane Fairfax or Mr. Churchill though!!

      Have a good week and happy baking and reading!

  5. I’m sorry you couldn’t find your eggs. We had a quiet weekend for Easter. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy Moonfall, but at least you got some great reading done. Have a great week!

    • Hi Wendy!

      We also had a very quiet Easter and I am very grateful for that. The renovations really tire me out a bit and I think I might need a nice long holiday hereafter!

      Nope, didn’t find any Easter eggs I liked, but I did eat a whole packet of hot cross buns!

      Have a good week Wendy!

  6. Lol… so sorry that Mommy wasted 15 minutes of her life on unwatchable rubbish – I know that feeling allll too well:)). And glad she is enjoying Project Hail Mary – I listened to it, too and think it’s an ideal book to hear. Particularly if you’re doing something enjoyable as well. Have a lovely week and it’s great to touch base with you. So sorry I’ve lost touch – but I simply don’t have the energy to keep visiting sites the way I used to. Hopefully there will come a time soon when I can do so again:).

    • Hi Sarah!

      It’s so good to hear from you again, but I can understand that it’s not all that easy to do site visits when you just don’t have the energy. I love doing blog hopping, but it does take a lot of time.

      You must take care of yourself and take your time with the recovery!

    • Hi Emma!

      I’m loving Project Hail Mary and would never have thought that I would. But I do. Ooh, Diamond Painting is the best craft ever invented. It’s rather brain-dead and you just stick sparkly dots on a canvas type thingy. I love it, because I can sit and listen to audiobooks for hours while doing it.

      Great idea, I’ll tell you a bit more about it in another post and add some pictures of the ones I’ve completed already.

  7. So sorry you couldn’t get your Easter eggs this year. With no new books you definitely deserve them! My absolute favorite Easter candy is the caramel Cadbury eggs and for some reason the grocery store that I usually go to never got them in. I found them at another store but it was a scary few moments. I hope you have a wonderful week and get an extra treat to make up for your lack of Easter eggs.
