Weekly Wrap-Up #68

Posted September 6, 2015 by Kathy in Wrap-Up / 10 Comments

My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This was another busy week with work and the kid’s homework. On Wednesday night I went to my youngest daughter Kailee’s back to school night. Since this is a new school for her it was a nice chance to meet the teachers and tour the school. It was good to see a lot of familiar parents in her class since she was worried about making new friends. Lucky for her the school campus is not too big so she has enough time to get to her different classes.

In the U.S. we are celebrating a 3 day weekend for Labor Day. This holiday was originally created to recognize and appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. So we all get a day off! Most people go out of town but for us we are staying home and resting. We did some house cleaning on Saturday so that we can relax on Sunday and Monday. I’m hoping to get some reading done and write up some posts.

I hope you all have a great week!

Here is what happened last week on the blog:

I worked out 4 days. I had to move to a new office this week so I got in a lot of steps during the move. Now with the new office I get a little bit more steps going to the copier/printer so that will help me to stay active during the day.


I got books!!

XOX Sept
My September XOXperts package arrived this week. This is the street team for Simon & Schuster and this month’s package has a nice mix of books. I’m really excited about my first Color Me Mindful book! It’s been a long time since I colored so I’m looking forward to having fun. If you have these coloring books do you use markers, colored pencils, or crayons? I want bright colors but I’m not sure what to use.

How was your week?

  1. Coloring seems to be the new thing to do. I haven’t colored since my kids were little. Ok, I may have colored a few restaurant placemats since, but I’m not sayin’ for sure. lol I think I’d prefer to do jigsaw puzzles, but I may give a coloring book a try. 🙂

      Restaurant placemats were probably the last thing I colored! I’m surprised how popular these are so it will be nice to try this.

  2. We’re staying close to home too, and just relaxing. Enjoy the new books and the coloring, that is so the rage now! They have some cool coloring books coming out. Have a great long weekend!

  3. Love three days weekend, although now I am retired so not quite the same as every weekend is 7 days! When I was teaching I got in a lot of steps walking to the photocopier so there are big advantages to working! I’ve read so much about the coloring books, and looked at them, but not sure I’d do much in them. Reading, blogging, quilting and doing puzzles plus exercise keeps me busy and enough away from the housework as it is!

      I wish we had these long weekends every month lol! It’s good that you keep yourself busy. The coloring will be a nice break from all the technology I use. Thanks for stopping by Kathryn!

  4. That long weekend sounds ncie! It’s a normal weekend for us here, not that it matters as I work every day anyway. That’s good to hear there are some familiar kids in your youngest duaghter her enw scool, it sure can help to have soem familiar faces around.

    I am always a bit confused on english termilogy when it comes to pencils and markers, in dutch it’s clearer what is what. I use pencils sometimes, whcih are lighter. But for my mandala colouring I used fine line pens, which are very bright. I think you can also use markers, but you really need a fine point for some colouring books if you want to stay within the lines. I posted a link to the fine line pens I used in my sunday post as you asked about it there :). I hope you’ll enjoy the colouring book, this sounds like a fun one! I hope you’ll share a picture once you’ve coloured a bit! Have a great week!

      Thanks for the coloring tips! I’ll definitely look for some with a find point to help me stay in the lines. It’s been so long since I’ve colored and I can’t wait to start again. Thanks Lola!
