Weekly Update #170, Sick Again, Bees, and Reading...

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 and Talk Supe for Bought, Borrowed, and Bagged showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week.

So all the kids caught colds a week ago and this week I caught it. It seems that we're just in for being sick quite a bit this year. However, I'm hoping by Monday I'll be feeling much better.

We also had to deal with some bees trying to relocate to the front of our house this week. It was crazy having to skirt through the backyard to avoid them and hear all the buzzing. We didn't want to kill them, but it's crazy expensive to have them removed, so we tried a natural remedy that actually doesn't hurt them and it got them to move on. I wish I would have gotten a picture of them swarming in a ball as they flew together down the street. They are amazing insects, but not safe to be that close to us, especially the kids.

I have gotten quite a bit of reading done, which I'm happy about. I'm judging for the INSPY's this year and have about 20 pages left before I've finished the reading for it. It's such an honor to get to be a part of it. I'm curious which book will end up winning. And with that, here's what to expect on the blog this week...

The Christ-Centered Home: Inviting Jesus InRace Girl (The Go Girls Chronicles, #3)Genesis Girl (Blank Slate, #1)
WillowkeepCargo (The Reservation Trilogy, #1)Memories of Ash (The Sunbolt Chronicles, #2)Future Shock
