The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated reviewer book blog, and is a post to recap my bookish and non-bookish things from the last week.
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. My time off was subdued and I was happy for it because we were slammed at work.
Do you get those photo memory messages from your phone every once in while? Like "your memories a year ago"? Just yesterday I got photo memories from my time in France four years ago, and I wonder when I'll get to visit again with all this craziness. Seeing all the photos brought back such wonderful memories! We traveled all over the place but I thought I'd share this fun photo:
This was on the grounds surrounding Chateau d'Amboise, a castle in the Loire Valley, and I just loved all the rounded shapes. Even the trees in the background you can see are rounded, too, even though they are without leaves (we visited end of November-December).
Anyhow, I was feeling nostalgic. I think there's a lot of beautiful places here in the States, too. I'm longing for my next trip. What about you? Anywhere you'd like to visit or re-visit?

I had a great reading week. Lots of fun short reads/listens. I'm still trying to meet my Audio Challenge so I've been looking for novellas or shorter books to meet my goal. I loved The Getaway by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen! It was only a 2 hour 24 min audio book, but it was a riveting read! Mistletoe Between Friends was also a fun short listen! I've read a lot of Linda Howards, but never got to Mackenzie's Mountain. Renee brought it to mind and I couldn't resist. I loved it! Can't believe it was written back in 1989. Man Down by Kate Meader was another win, even though it broke my heart just thinking about the loss Gunnar went through.
I was excited to get a copy of Tell No Lies as I loved the first book. Allison Brennan is almost always a win for me. I've started listening to Happy Trail, an opposites attract romance while hiking the Appalachian Trail, a 2000 mile "thru hike"! Another one of Lark's books I had to read! Lord Dashwood Missed Out and Stay Close are both audio novellas to help me meet my Audio Challenge.
Nothing too exciting. Just my old standby. Pretty soon we'll be out of episodes.
How was your week?
