My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week.
We are having the strangest weather this week. One day it was sunny and warm then the next day cloudy and cold. It rained really hard on Friday, so hard we can hear the rain on the roof at work. But Saturday it was sunny again. We do need the water but I can’t wait to have consistent flip flop weather.
The blog was quiet this week since I was busy again with life. I’ve signed up for Weight Watchers (again) since I’ve gained weight and not eating right. So this week I stayed on track counting my points and walking at night. I’ve been reading too but I haven’t had time to write up any posts. I’ve just been so tired lately and also I’ve been thinking of new posts. I have fun creating my Book Looks so I’m thinking about doing more with fashion and images. We’ll see how it turns out lol.
The next 2 weeks will be quiet again on the blog. Mother’s Day is coming on May 8 and I’ll be working on a scrapbook to give to my Mom. I’ve been meaning to do this but kept putting it off. But last year she had a mild stroke and has been in and out of the hospital. She’s recovered but her memory has been affected. She is having trouble remembering what she wants to say and also repeats things from minutes ago. So I think this is the perfect time to make this gift for her. I bought some pre-made scrapbook albums a couple years ago and they have a family theme (with quotes). So I just need to find the pictures to put in. So that’s my focus for the next 2 weeks and reading will have to be put to the side. But I’ll still be visiting blogs so I won’t be gone for long =).

Video pick of the week:
I’m still shocked that Prince passed away this week. His music was an important part of my childhood and brings back good memories. But I’m really surprised to hear about his humanitarian efforts, especially in Oakland, CA. I’m familiar with that city so it’s really amazing to hear the anonymous charity work he did for the low income areas. We also lost actress Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) and wrestler Chyna this week so it’s just a constant reminder to not take time for granted. Purple Rain is one of my favorite Prince songs and here is a video of him performing at the 2007 Super Bowl Half Time show in a storm!
Outlander Season 2 is amazing! The costumes and setting are beautiful, so much better than I imagined while reading the book. Game of Thrones is starting Sunday night so my weekends are booked in front of the TV!!
How was your week?
