The Sunday Post #34 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you toΒ Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

Since I wasn’t teaching this week, I had time to catch up with some friends both for lunch and dinner, and it was really nice to see some people I haven’t seen in a while. Also, on Tuesday, it was my 20th anniversary since marrying my husband so we went out on a date πŸ™‚ My blogoversary has come and go without me really realizing it… I think I’ll do a giveaway in July, when I have even more time to do my own stuff πŸ™‚

Our garden is in bloom, which is awesome! We’ve had some really nice, warm and sunny days, as well as some rainy evenings so plants and flowers are growing like crazy.

On Friday, my students had their English exam, so now it’s time for me to get the grading done… it’s not all that fun, but hopefully, they’ll all have done well!

  1. That’s nice you had time to catch up with your friend and go out on a date with your husband, Cognrats on your 20 year anniversary! And congrats on your blogoversary! We had some nice weather as well this week, some rain, but also lots of sun.
    Grading sounds like the leats fun part of being a teacher. I hope your students did well!

    Have a great week!

    • Yes, it was a really good week, Lola. It’s so nice that the sun is shining during the day, but we get rain and a good thunderstorm in the evening to cool things down a little bit πŸ™‚
      Grading is definitely the least fun part of teaching, but it has to be done…

  2. Happy anniversary! And blogoversary too- they can kinda sneak by. πŸ™‚ Glad you got to see friends- that’s always nice. Sounds like you had a good week- and fun links too.

  3. Sounds like you’ve been having a fun week. I miss catching up with friends. Happy Anniversary too! I missed my blogoversary this year also. It was back in February. LOL

  4. Happy anniversary! As for those blogoversaries, with eleven blogs, I usually do forget mine these days…LOL.

    How nice that you had a week to hang out with friends. Enjoy the new week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. Wow Lexxie! Congrats to you and the hubby on 20 years! That’s quite the milestone. Me and my man will get there in about 4 years, which is kind of crazy. It doesn’t feel that long that’s for sure. Anyway, I hope that you both had a nice date πŸ™‚ Oh and happy blogoversary as well, I totally missed mine the first year I was blogging, it happens hehe! Yay for gardens in bloom, we moved this year so I had to say goodbye to my beloved garden but hopefully I can plant a few things at the new place too. I do love gardens so much β™₯ Have a wonderful week^^ x

    • Thank you, Micheline! Yeah, it is quite the milestone, I can’t believe we’ve actually been married for that long – even if we have kids who are old enough to show us how long we’ve been together πŸ˜‰
      I hope you’ll be able to plant something nice in your new garden this summer!

  6. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! and Happy Blog-birthday! I missed mine too. It was in February and I totally forgot about it lol.

    Getting a night out with friends is nice, I am due for one soon. I need adult time πŸ™‚

    Good Luck with the paper grading!

    Have a great week, Lexxie! oxox

  7. My garden is doing some blooming too! πŸ™‚ This is my first attempt at a garden since i was a teenager!! So it has it’s ups and downs…lol.

  8. Ugh. Have fun grading – easily my least favorite part of teaching lol. And happy anniversary, 20 years is fantastic πŸ™‚ and happy blogoversary too! Hope you’re having a great week – I FINALLY wrote my RT posts this week and I’m missing y’all all over again!

  9. Nice to have a little space from teaching, although marking can be downright tedious, although good when the results are tops. Sounds like you are enjoying summer, enjoy your reading.

  10. Congrats on your anniversary, 20 years is awesome. It’s good to have date nights, my granddaughter has a sleepover once a week so mum and dad can have a regular date night. Becoming Rain is on my TBR mountain. Have a great week, good luck with grading and happy reading πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! Now our kids are old enough to be on their own for an evening, but before, we paid good money to be able to go on dates πŸ™‚ It must be nice for your son/daughter to have you living close enough to be able to have your granddaughter on sleepovers πŸ™‚
