Weekly Update #199, a rather blustery day...


Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, as well as to Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week, and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date.

Winnie the Pooh  and the Blustery Day

We have had such winterish weather, especially for Arizona. It's been cold and wet, but the humidity has meant that the lows haven't been very low even with the highs fairly low. Now I say that understanding that our temperatures would be laughed at as being anywhere near cold in most other areas, but for us native Arizonans, having a week plus straight of temps below 60 is cold. Then today the sun came out (another weird thing about here is that we rarely have an entire day or three, like the past three days, without the sun - I don't remember the last time it was consistently this cloudy) and it got very windy. I tried to take some pictures for Instagram outside and had to hold my stuff down! I'm hoping this cool weather means that we won't hit 100 degrees until June. Not that it will happen, but one can hope.

So, on to other things besides the weather... I've also had two sick kids this week (the oldest and the youngest) and have been taking care of them. My little girl topped her croupy cough, that is still hanging on from last week, with an ear infection. So not fun! We did get to spend some together time and cuddle time, which I miss and really enjoyed. Reading unfortunately slacked off, but I plan on picking it back up again.

Here's what to expect this week on the blog:

The Mark of the KingA Rake Reformed (Gentlemen of Worth, #6)Petticoat Spy
Falling Like Snowflakes (Summer Harbor, #1)The Goodbye Bride (Summer Harbor, #2)Just a Kiss (Summer Harbor, #3)When Ash Rains Down (Kingdom Come, #1)

I'm still hoping to read:
Caraval (Caraval, #1)HeartstoneCold Shot (Chesapeake Valor, #1)Still Life (Chesapeake Valor #2)

I grabbed just a few eARCs from NetGalley. Here they are:
A Stranger at Fellsworth (Treasures of Surrey, #3)You'll Think of Me
These Ruthless Deeds (These Vicious Masks, #2)Rebels like UsFuture Threat
