It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Hope you are all well. Time moves on. I was out for a walk and passed a tree that seemed not so long ago had beautiful autumn leaves all on the ground. Now full of new leaves and spring blossom.  Yesterday I planted some beans, might be a bit too early but will replant if these don’t sprout.

What did I do with the week gone by? Well read of course. I will keep going with the Patience Griffin series as I quite enjoyed the first one.  And totally engrossed in the Debra Webb suspense one.  My main sewing machine is not back but I do have a back up one I have been using so some patchwork and quilting!

I watched Delta Covid numbers go up in the Auckland and northern areas on New Zealand. The government have let go the elimination strategy, Delta is too catchy! Plus the underworld elements can’t keep rules so govt is endeavouring to play catch up with vaccinations.  We have our share of course of people with weird ideas and also “not going to be told what to do!” You know, the two year old element in society!

Hope you all had a good reading week. I did and moving along into new books. I am thinking of the garden and need to go to the centre to see about pumpkin seeds and a tomato plant. And soon bean planting time.

I had to take my sewing machine to be serviced so that was a little trip north by half an hour. I do have a back up machine so hasn’t totally stopped me!

I set my sister up at the library with her own library card etc. Oh they have nice new cards and a small one to go on your key ring. Hmmm –  I wonder if I “lost” my card!  Now I will set up a tablet so she can access Libby online especially for audiobooks. She reads differently to me, I call me “light and soft” and her “heavy and hard” in terms of reading! However thanks to all the bloggers out there I have good suggestions for her. She can only read large print now so a little limiting, but they still have good options. Yay for libraries.

Well we went into daylight saving on Sunday. So that means more daylight in the evening. There are definite signs of spring all around. I can hear the Tui’s call – a native bird with a love for nectar. Their beaks are into all the blossoms at the moment.  I heard that the Godwits have arrived from Alaska after their long flight to New Zealand. So amazing to do it all in one go, what a long way.

I had a good week of reading and quilting. Just finishing one up and only now have about twenty to work on! Must keep my eyes off any more fabric and patterns. It’s a bit like books and reading, well a lot really.

Another Monday! I did much the same, grocery shopping, a visit to a hospital 40 min away to see my sister and take her some audiobooks on my iPod. And yesterday made a group of 8 -9 books to leave to another sister who has taken up reading again now she has is reaching retirement. A visit from a friend on Saturday oh and yesterday I went to the library. Reading and quilting as well. Just an ordinary week! Nothing wrong with them!

Hope your week went well, as we remembered the events of 9/11.

My part of the country now has had its restrictions lifted for the pandemic, not Auckland though. However we now wear masks going into any place outside our homes. I visited someone in  hospital and it was quite an experience. But good they are taking such precautions.

I listened to #298 of the Modern Mrs Darcy podcast. It’s not often I’ve read some of the books discussed and decided I wanted to read one or two others mentioned.

What I read last week:

A good reading week completed with A Good Day for Chardonnay. Oh my, loved the book, I want the next one sooner than it can be published.

Hope you are all doing okay in this ever changing world. I am hoping for a going down of levels of lockdown announcement today for my area. Although that means tidying up the house a bit as it allows for us to intermingle more.

Greetings to you all. Hope you are keeping safe. Thinking about those facing a hurricane, or fires or Delta. I always like visiting so many of your posts and finding out how you are all doing in your place in the world.

We are still in lockdown although my area will lessen a little, with those who work in construction can go back to work safely on Wednesday and people can get takeaways in non contact way. However Auckland where the big outbreak is, they don’t have any of that.

After my first week in lockdown and a bit of moping, I’ve now  got myself into a rhythm and am keeping myself occupied happily.

Hope you are all well. Last Tuesday we were put into lock down for the whole country (New Zealand) and so for me that means seeing no one for the time being. We are only allowed out for a walk or to the supermarket. I went there this morning. Government are trying to put out the latest Covid Delta outbreak. I don’t think there is any near me but I am masking up when out as per most are.  I think my area may have it all lifted quite a bit in a week.

I am (was) out this morning for Covid vaccine Pfizer No. 2. Pleased to get it even though we have no community cases. However with it becoming an issue now in parts of Australia we are just a bit antsy it will sneak its way into NZ before long.

I had a good week, family fish ‘n chip night because my brother was visiting from up north, then Saturday out to watch soccer or football for Mr 7 year old. He is rather good, it’s great to see how his skills have developed over the season. When I was teaching the last thing I would have wanted to do was watch children’s sport on a Saturday morning. But now, I have fun at it.

What I read last week:

I had a really good reading week!  Sometimes that just happens!

What I am reading now:

I went to lengths to wait for this to publish and then to phone the local shop to see if they had it. Two copies, so I was up there to bags a copy!

I finished The Bright Side of Disaster by Katherine Center and so now I am listening to…

The Grand Sophy

A library fest of books at present, but I think I can fit them in, in time! This is one.

Hope you all had a good week. We’ve had heaps of rain. Must almost be floating by now! I’ve had a good week though. Saw one of my great nieces on Saturday. Miss Six. She showed me where she now had a missing tooth. “Is that your first tooth for the tooth fairy?” I asked her. “No, this is my “freeth” she said. Her version of threeth or as I said, “oh your third!” I get such joy from small moments like that!

What I read last week:

I finished listening to The Twelve Clues of Christmas. It was a really good listen with some gruesome death scenes at the end for the murderer.  The Guncle was excellent reading and I am happy I have my own copy of this to put on my keeper shelves.
