The Good-Grief-What-a-Busy-Posting-Week Wrap-Up

I wasn't expecting this to be such a post-heavy week but you have to go with the flow when you feel like it, right?  'Bout time, really.  Since it's Friday and usually I post a pic of Fiona on Friday but I did that on Thursday and then whipped out 4 children's book reviews, today, I figured a wrap-up is in order, so here you go . . . with a bonus photo of Isabel.  Aren't you lucky?

Last week's delayed Fiona Friday post:  
Fiona Sunday Life is Sucking Mash-Up

Things have improved since then.  Just thought you'd like to know.  Thanks so much to those of you who commented, prayed and sent good thoughts.  It really helped!!!!

On Monday, I did a DNF post with a link to a free chapter:
The Emotionally Healthy Woman (DNF) by Gina Scazzero

Then I posted my New Review Policy (kind of a misnomer because I ditched my old review policy quite a while ago and went without one for probably a year):
New Review Policy

I knew I was going to make today Children's Day, so I went ahead and posted my Fiona photo and an update on books that have recently walked in on Thursday:
Fiona Friday Fursday and Recent Arrivals

And, today I wrote four reviews of Children's books:
Pigs in Love by T. Slater and A. Boyd (board book)
Time for a Hug by Gershator, Green and Walker (board book)
Wooby & Peep by C. Liu and M. Peterson (for ages 3-7)
Maya was Grumpy by Courtney Pippin-Mather (picture book, which is labeled for ages 5 and up, but I think would be fine for kids as young as 2 or 3 if they've exited the page-tearing phase)

That's all, for now!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

  1. I didn't write a dang thing this week..but comments on other's blogs. Sigh! It's a mood thing. You're right, when the mood hits, you act.

    1. I was the opposite. I visited a few blogs but didn't comment at all. Definitely mood-based, this blogging thing. Hard to believe that after nearly 7 years I'm still trying to convince myself that's okay.

  2. I am so glad that prayers are working!! It has been a cool experience thinking about you and what might be your needs when we have a moment of silence every morning at school. It has been such a great blessing to me...thanks for sharing that things are going better.

    Isn't life amazing that way?

    I can't wait to hear what you felt about the new Kate Atkinson book, Life After Life!!
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Aw, thanks, Gaye. You know how you just know it when people are praying and sending positive vibes? I've definitely felt that, this week. There's still a lot to deal with, but we had some very, very good news that made everything more tolerable. Yes, indeed; life is amazing that way. :)

      The short answer: I loved Life After Life. You'll have to wait for the longer one. LOL

  3. My goodness, I haven't been keeping up with things!
    I do want to hear about Life After Life.

    1. It was an unusually post-heavy week, Jenclair. Life After Life is great. Hope to get to that, tomorrow. I'm not in a writing mood, today.

  4. What a beautiful pic of Izzy dear :) I hope things keep getting better for you Nance! Love you!

    1. Thanks, Chris! And, thank you for the good wishes. We've got a lot of big decisions to make and life's a bit stressful, right now, but at least this past week was a huge improvement. :) Love you right back!!!
