The Sunday Post #53 – 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.

This week went by so fast! Not only did I teach a lot, I also had my classes where I’m a student, and on Tuesday evening, my oldest daughter and I went to a concert. We saw The Cat Empire, and they are truly amazing! It’s a mix of different kinds of music, and I love that. We had a great time, dancing, singing and listening. And because it was at a fairly small venue, we were able to be all the way in the front – if we stretched our arms, we could almost touch the musicians, and it made the experience so magical. Of course, it was also very nice to have that moment with my daughter. We seem to always keep swapping music these days, our tastes are fairly similar, but she’s better than me at finding ‘new’ groups we both love.

  1. It looks like you had an awesome time at the concert. I love seeing live music in a small venue. So much better that way than in a huge stadium. πŸ™‚ I, too, really enjoyed All I Want. I’m pretty new to Jill’s books, but so far I enjoy her Animal Magnetism series more than Lucky Harbor. They’re both good, but I adore the characters, romance and, of course, animals in the former.

    Hope you have a great week!

    • I agree, small venues are so intimate it makes the experience of live music even better πŸ™‚
      Jill Shalvis knows how to write a good contemporary romance that is character-driven, and I think that’s why I love her books so much. I’m glad you enjoyed All I want, too πŸ™‚

  2. Whew sounds like you had a busy week with both teaching and being a student. That’s so awesome you got to stand so close to the musicians and it sounds like you had a lot of fun at the concert. I don’t go to them anymore as I went to a concert once and my ears can’t handle the noise, which is a shame as concert always look so fun. My boyfriend usually finds new music for us to listen to, I am not really a musical person, but I usually enjoy listening to whatever my boyfriend puts on. Hope you have a great week!

  3. It sounds like you had a fun and busy week. I like going to smaller venues for concerts since it feels more personal. That is great you had some fun with your daughter. It is nice to have things in common so you will always have someone to go with to the events =)

  4. The Cat Empire is an Australian group aren’t they? My brother was / is a huge fan if it’s the same group. I didn’t mind some of their songs but they haven’t had anything out in a while (guess that’s cos they’re touring!).

    What a small world!

    • Yes, they’re from Melbourne, I think πŸ™‚ And they are absolutely amazing! They keep releasing music, but I can’t say I have ever heard them on the radio here – which is another reason I’m happy my daughter is good at finding new groups πŸ˜€

  5. The Cat Empire is a band I’ve never heard of…but Sky and I will check out. It seems like they put on a good show! I’m glad you had a good time with #1. I just decided she looks *A LOT* like her mom!! πŸ˜‰ A concert was a treat for your busy week, I’m sure! I hope this week is a good one!! *BIG HUGS*

    • I think both you and Sky will enjoy The Cat Empire, Brandee! It’s a really cool mix of rock, ska, reggae, salsa and other kinds of music πŸ™‚ LOL you think she looks a lot like me? πŸ˜€ And yes, it was a great treat to have the concert – I lived in a concert haze the day after, listening to their music on my way to class and all πŸ™‚ *BIG HUGS*

    Hi Lexxie!
    I’m so glad you had a great time at the concert! It’s wonderful when you can share something like that with family πŸ™‚ I don’t have any kids yet, but I know it’s something I’d love to do with my mother. It’s the bonding, you know? We also have similar tastes in music so I can relate there πŸ™‚ It’s just nice to have something like that to bond over… though she’s normally the one showing me “new” bands πŸ˜‰ he he.
    Take care,
    Amy x
