Suddenly Sunday–July 2013

Suddenly Sunday

Good morning everyone!  I don’t think I have done one of these posts this month, so I may as well use it as a wrap up. 

It has been so incredibly crazy around here.  I have had crazy amounts of mandatory overtime which has left me working 10 hour days (+ 2 hours of driving) so I have been so exhausted when I get home and I haven’t done much in terms of reading this past week.  My grandmother passed away two weeks ago, so I had a weeks worth of family drama going on as well as a 9 hour drive to the suburbs of Pittsburgh for the funeral – only positive was finishing 3 books during the car ride (long overdue for review).  So if you have noticed I have been a little less than present (aside from my prescheduled posts), that is why.  I’m going to try to get a handle on my reader and responding to comments soon. 

I’m also going to try real hard to get back on the Weekend Cooking bandwagon.  Maybe a post later today – likely a historical cookbook review if I get the chance.  I always loved combining my interest in history/blogging/cooking and have missed it – but I haven’t even wanted to cook lately. 

Coming up this week should be my Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald spotlight posts – I’m looking forward to my Caught on Tape installment. 

I started watching the recent Lincoln movie starring Daniel Day Lewis – and I’m having a hard time getting into it.  I have stopped it twice and I’m only about halfway through.  I think the acting is good, but it’s just not catching my interest.  Any thoughts?

And last but not least, I have a giveaway winner to announce – the winner of The Prodigal Son by Anna Belfrage is…Kim@Time2Read!!! Congrats Kim!  I have sent an email to the winner already.  Thanks to everyone that entered.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Muse in the Fog.
