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.

Hello all. Well I am over weather this week. Wet, extremely windy with small twisters and rain and hail, thunder and lightning and we have another few days of it. I had a visitor yesterday and we decided it was better staying over night and travel this morning. Which we did. Just yucky. Fortunately so far I haven’t been in the path of the twisters or flooding but many others have. One of sisters was having problems with a flooding street.

My sister posted this, this morning on Facebook. So funny – we have an ongoing joke because one of our sisters got mad with us all for awhile and called us witches. My brother thought this was hugely funny and built a block for us all ( 5) to park our broomsticks at mad sister’s place.  My sister  says “Weather conditions are so bad here I was only going to get some milk from the dairy. got blown off course .”

Miss 6 year old came home from school very bouncy and excited. She said there had been thunder, lightning, heavy rain, hail and strong wind. It was so awesome! I can remember my teaching days when if you got extreme weather, lessons “were out the window” as the class just massed at the windows to watch!

I had a good reading week, read and discussed volcanoes as we read Max’s reading book. (Helping him with reading), we have lots of volcanoes in NZ so quite relevant with one huffing and puffing at the moment. I wrote 6 postcards I am ready to send off to USA and Canada as part of a Facebook quilting group who are mailing out postcards to people in the group. Thought it would be fun. Hope they get there, my pen has smudged a bit on the card so need to look into what kind of writing tool is better! So going to brave the weather after preparing this post to get a few more stamps and post them. Who knows when they’ll arrive. Postage is pretty erratic these days.

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

The wedding dress sewing circle

And still listening to Bloomsbury Girls which I am enjoying but just seem not to be getting to it.

Up next:

Catching up on a back log review book I chose by accident but hope its enjoyable.

I had a good week. I finished watching Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small. Now I see at least they are making a season 3 and 4 so something to wait for.

I listened to a podcast that interviewed an interior book designer. Who knew that was something that had to be thought through. Now I am examining the book I am reading more carefully to see what she was talking about!

We’ve had lots of rain and in for more. We have been blessed with lots of sun over summer but now the wet weather is here!

It’s a long weekend here – we celebrate the Queen’s Birthday in June and of course its her bitg 70 year celebration. I watched a little of it on You Tube. I only stream so don’t have any channels that might have shown more.

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

Almost finished and will do so today no doubt.

Hope you are all getting by well. Late Autumn is signalling winter here and the last few nights that’s meant two quilts on the bed!

I’ve been reading and a little visiting and some viewing. Now the nights have closed in its easier to sit by the fire and catch up on some TV shows. I was delighted to find Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small had dropped here while I wasn’t looking so one of the shows I am indulging in.

Well a quieter reading week. I was busy sewing and getting quilts ready for my brother to take back with him to two of his grandchildren so reading went on the back burner!  We had a nice evening with him and his wife. It’s quite a few months since we all gathered so that was great.

Welcome in and hope all is going reasonably well for you all. I had a good week. I ventured into Wellington city via a new road that opened a little while back. Quite an experience as it cuts through some high hills. It takes off a whole lot of the small towns and so you can go along at full speed.

After connecting with a friend we then travelled around the harbour to Eastbourne for a walk and the yummy oysters, scallops and chips. Great way to spend a day.

Now wet weather has set in and while not too cold I have lit the fire a few times. Makes things cosy!

Welcome in all. Hope the week is starting well for you all.

Saturday for me was spent helping to dig out the veggie garden as roots from other things had grown up in it. All the soil was dug out ( no not me) and then we sifted it through some netting and put weed mat down and put the soil back. Hopefully it won’t compact like it did before. It’s a raised veggie bed. Now to grow veggies again. We had done half about a month ago and already I have some greens growing well. Helps with the growing price of vegetables at the supermarket.

Sunday I was a bit out to it, couldn’t even read I was so tired, so a few doses of Bridgerton and a Dancing with the Stars helped.

Well and another new month. For many of you hopefully feeling Spring and for us here definitely feeling Autumn. Although that said, April was a very sunny month for where I live so it was really lovely. Today a promise of some rain.

What I read last week:

Looks like a lot for one week, but two are audiobooks that I finished and had been listening to for a few weeks.

What I am reading now:

I am reading through this series, once I start one it sure pulls me in.

So we are at the last Monday in April can you believe!  We are well into Autumn now here in NZ. Got that feel to it, but very little rain really so far.

I have given totally up on Bloglovin’ now to follow blogs, I have remembered WordPress Reader and because I can use it for Blogger blogs as well I think it will work out. I am in process of putting in the blogs I follow but haven’t done them all. This Monday link up will help me sort some more.

I viewed all of Season 1 of All Creatures Great and Small set in Yorkshire and now I discover Season 2 is not here yet. So sad about that because I was right into it!
