Weekly Wrap-Up #121

Posted April 8, 2017 by Kathy in Weekly Wrap-Up / 14 Comments

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 and I hope you all had a good week.  It’s been a while since my last wrap-up post. March was a busy month for my family so I took a little blog break.  Last weekend we went to Disneyland and Wondercon and we had a lot of fun.  Check out my Wondercon recap post.  While at Disneyland I tried to get the exclusive Beauty and the Beast tumbler but they sold out. Now I see them on Ebay selling for up to $500 and it’s crazy. It’s a plastic cup and not worth that lol. We did try the food at the Red Rose Tavern and it was so good. The Grey Stuff Gataeu, Lemon Rose Cake and Slow-Cooked Beef Poutine were delicious and worth the long wait in line. But we didn’t like Gaston’s Famous Brew, it was too sweet. We had a lot of fun and hope to go back to Disneyland in 2019 when Star Wars Land opens.

I’ve been on vacation this last week and I did get some reading done. But I didn’t get to the house projects I wanted to do. I need at least two more weeks off from work to relax and do the things I wanted to do. But I go back to work on Monday and I am dreading it. At least my kids are on spring break this week so I don’t have to worry about school activities for a week. Do you have any plans for spring break?

Currently reading or listening to:

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee (ebook)

A Lady’s Code of Misconduct by Meredith Duran (paperback)

Currently watching:

I’m addicted to Lucifer (Netflix). I sat in the Wondercon panel with my sister and now I’m trying to catch up on the series. It’s a good show mixed with comedy and mystery. Lucifer is on vacation from Hell and he has some major daddy issues he needs to work out. And he’s changing from his evil persona so I’m curious to see where this show goes.  I also want to try to catch up on Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  This was another panel we sat in and I’m behind on the seasons. Now that I’m watching Netflix I need to make sure I get some reading done lol.

 

I hope you have a great week!

Kathy

  1. Vacation always goes too fast if you ask me. 🙂 Glad you got some reading done though. And Disneyland sounds fun! I’d love to see the Star Wars lands when they open.

    Curious to see your thoughts on The Valiant, I’ve seen both good and lukewarm reviews. And Netflix totally screws up my reading time some weeks!

      I can’t wait to see Star Wars Land. They did a great job with Carsland, it feels like you are in the movie. The Valiant was good and my review will be up soon. I’m trying to balance reading and watching TV. So far I’m not doing good lol. Thanks Greg and have a great week!

  2. My husband LOVE Lucifer. I love the guy who plays Lucifer! 😉

    I am so JEALOUS! If your trip! I loved all the pictures on FB and IG. You girls looked like you had an awesome time!

    I hope you have a great week! Kathy! Happy Reading! ox

  3. I’m glad you had some fun in March…I had a getaway to the beach last weekend, for my daughter’s wedding. We had a reception in town when we got back. Now I’m trying to get back into my routines, after one week beforehand of packing and getting ready…and now unpacking. LOL.

    The Hate U Give looks like a book I must have. Thanks for sharing…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    • Kathy

      It’s crazy what people sell on Ebay lol. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

  4. Sounds like you had a fun trip to Disney and Wondercon! Breaks and vacations like that always seem too short. But it’s nice you got some reading done at least :). I hope you’ll have a great week!
