The Sunday Post # – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you toΒ Kim 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.


The weather is back to being all over the place! It snowed in the mountains not far from us this week, we also had one very hot day where it was actually hard to get things done, then we had a thunderstorm, and also a couple of pretty cool days where I was wondering if we should put the heating back on :O

My 4 year blogoversary is next week, and I am hosting two different giveaways for my friends and followers. One is European only, and the other is open internationally. I have another international giveaway on my Facebook page as well. Don’t be shy – just enter!

Next week is my last week of teaching, as my students have exams starting June 6th, and I will have to correct their tests after the 14th. I also have my last MA exam on the 6th of June, it’s an oral exam, and the subject is communication in foreign language teaching. I need to re-read both the articles we’ve discussed in class and my notes so that I’m well organized and ready for that.

Last week, I discovered that there will be a bookish festival in the South of France September 30 – October 2, and several authors I love are going to be there. So of course, I booked tickets for myself and my oldest daughter. The authors I’m the most excited about seeing there are Colleen Hoover and KA Tucker πŸ˜€ If you’re in Europe and interested in going, here’s the web-site Festival New Romance.

  1. Now that is some frustrating weather. We get that way here as well. Never know whether you should wear shorts or a parka. πŸ™‚

    Wishing you well on finishing up your studies and getting the end of the school year wrapped up.

    The book festival in France sounds great. I haven’t read any CoHo, but I adore KA Tucker’s books. πŸ™‚

    Have a good week, Lexxie!

  2. Hey that book festival sounds nice! It’s been hot here all week so at least we’re consistent- feels like summer now. Not complaining though-it’s felt good! Hope your weather stays summery soon too.

    Nice post on conventions- I’ve never been to a bookish convention per se although I’ve been to gaming and fantasy type cons. It’s always fun to get away and interact with fandom. Have a nice week Lexxie!

  3. What crazy weather. Ours gets like that sometimes. Happy almost blogoversary! πŸ˜€ My 5th blogoversary is the 1st, but I doubt I’ll do anything for it. Gotta get my Freddy fix.

  4. Whoa that weather really does sound crazy. But how awesome that those book festivals are going to be in Europe and that they have authors you like! Good luck on the exam, and, as usual, Freddy is adorable πŸ˜›

  5. Cute photos of the dog Lexxie! That’s so exciting that you’re going to meeting KA Tucker and CoHo, I absolutely LOVE them and you’re going to have such a great time! Congratulations on the 4 year blogoversary, what a fantastic achievement! My one is coming up in a few months time too!

  6. Freddy has to be the highlight of my weekend I think! That first photo, he looks like he’s done something wrong and it’s so cute! Happy blogiversary!

  7. Gah! I hate how everything is so close in Europe and you can fly about anywhere! Sort of. The south of France sounds very decadent!

    The weather’s still really unpredictable here as well which is annoying!

    And finally – happy blogiversary! xx

  8. That is some crazy weather. We have sadly reached the point here where its just hot and humid or hotter and more humid. Summer in the states…
    Freddy looks so big now!! Gah! So cute!
    Have a great week!

  9. We have had some crazy weather here as well. Not so much this past week but the week before. I was pulling my coat out after wearing shorts days earlier. Freddy is such a cutie! Happy 4 years! That is such an accomplishment, Lexxie!

  10. Ah, the mercurial weather! Hopefully it will settle into something resembling summer soon. Good luck on the exams, and enjoy the bookish festival.

    Congrats on the upcoming Fourth Blogoversary! How the years fly by. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  11. The weather has been weird lately! Good luck on your test! I haven’t had to take an oral test yet, but the hardest part for me would the talking because I don’t like talking to people I don’t know. I hope that you have a lot of fun at the book fest! I bet that you and your daughter will have a ton of fun. πŸ™‚

  12. Have blogoversay – 4 years is a real milestone:). Love the pics of Freddy, who is clearly enjoying the sunshine. Our weather is improving, but the nights are still cold and we are getting quite cool winds. But the late spring flowers are wonderful. Lovely to book and look forward to cons – I’m off to Fantasycon with my husband at Scarborough in Sept. Have a great reading and blogging week.

  13. Happy blogaversary Lexie!!! Our weather has been a bit crazy here too. One day it’s beautiful and the next I’m reaching for my blankets and turning on the heater. Raining today, but it’s supposed to be pretty the rest of the week. We shall see though πŸ˜‰
    Good luck on your oral exam! I’m sure you’ll do fantastic. Hope you have a great week πŸ˜€

  14. Our weather has finally decided to stop being bonkers and has settled down a bit. Of course now that I say that we’ll probably get snow or hail or some other nonsense! Good luck on your exam and grading papers. I love the Freddy pictures! Just so precious. The book festival sounds like a lot of fun and what fun to be able to share that with your daughter. Have a great week!

  15. That weather sounds crazy! I hate those too warm days where it’s hard to concentrate. We had some sunny days and a bit of rain. I always forget for how long I’ve been blogging. I think it will be four years in December?

    I hope your last week of teaching goes well! The book festival in France sounds like it will be a fun one. I hope you’ll have a great time there. It’s fun that some well known authors actually come this way.

    Great Freddy pictures! He’s always looking so adorable! Thanks for linking to my post! I hope you’ll have a great week!

    • I feel like I just shouldn’t complain about the heat anymore, Lola. Because right now, some heat would be so very welcome! It’s still raining, windy and very cool outside πŸ™
      I’m sure I’ll have a fun time at the festival in France, Lola. I’m very excited about KA and CoHo being there, and I’m also very happy my daughter is coming with me!

  16. We have crazy weather like there here some times. We have been getting a ton of rain, though not as bad as some places were it’s flooded. I am just tired of the rain, but we have four more days at least that is what the weather guys says…never can tell with the weather around here…lol.

    That book festival sounds fun!

  17. We’ve just been getting a lot of rain; flooding areas already drenched. Supposed to rain all this coming week, too. I just hope it doesn’t rain on field day! A book festival in the south of France? How lovely.

  18. Oooh, a festival in the south of France sounds nice! Can’t wait to hear all about that! And what a sweet dog you have. I adore the look on his face. πŸ™‚

  19. I don’t miss those weird weather days. Have a wonderful wrap=up week as well as a great time at the book festival. Happy Blogiversary.

  20. The book festival sounds so fun. And some excellent authors to meet too. Good luck on your exams and wrapping up the school year. Your weather does sound wacky. Been hot and sunny here. Just the way I like it. Have a lovely holiday weekend, Lexxie.

  21. Oh that is annoying weather. How are you even suppose to know what clothes to put on with weather like that.

    Congrats on your 4 year blogoversary!

  22. Your recent weather sounds like where I live. We always joke that if you don’t like the weather, wait a day or two, it”ll change! We get some crazy stuff all around the same time.

    The author event in France sounds fun! That’s great you can go and with your daughter too.


  23. The weather everywhere has just been insane. I’ve put away the warmer clothes 3 times! Now, I just leave them laying out because dammit, I never know if I’ll need them. *exasperated sigh*

    Oh, Freddy is just too adorable! πŸ™‚

    Good luck with the exam! We’ve got 9 days to go then summer break. Yay!

    • I want to put away all my winter clothes now, too… Too bad that doesn’t seem likely right now.
      I look forward to summer break, too πŸ™‚ Hopefully, the weather will cooperate a bit more once we’re all off and have time to have fun outdoors.

  24. Our weather has been crazy too changing from hot to rain. I think it will be hot for now so it makes it hard to be outside. Congratulations on your blogoversary! I hope you have more years of blogging fun! The book festival in South of France sounds like a lot of fun. That is a great list of authors attending. I can’t wait to see your pictures from the event! Good luck on your exams and I hope you have a great week!

  25. We went through a bout of weather just like that about a month ago, now it’s just humid and hot. The weather is basically screwed up every where this year. Congrats on you blog anniversary!! And your pup is super cute!
    I hope you have an awesome week!

  26. I feel your pain with the odd weather – we’re experiencing it as well. Luckily, we’re just having thunderstorms/rain now rather than snow but it is still snowing at higher elevations. πŸ˜‰ Here’s to summer!!! Good luck with your last week of teaching, your students’ exams, and your exam. You’ll do great, I have no doubt!! πŸ˜€
    I hope you’ve had a great week. My computer stopped working…but it’s fixed now. Yay! And Sky is now officially an adult. πŸ˜‰ She turned 18 yesterday. **BIG HUGS**

    • Well, each state in the US is kind of like a country, right? It’s the right size, at least. The trip to France won’t happen until late September, we just got our tickets. And I’m really excited about CoHo and KA Tucker coming to a festival here in Europe πŸ™‚
