This week was a better week for my blogging than the previous one. I have some catching up to do but will get there hopefully this coming week.
This is the time of the year where I need to check back on what I had set myself to work on this year (a better me goal in baby steps) and reaffirm those for myself. So I am going to get on that activity as well this week.
- Sunday Scribblings #5: My last Sunday Scribblings was devoid of what I did the previous week, because I had zilch, nothing, nada! But I did (attempt to) write a poem as I wondered on where time flies (to) 🙂
- In Paris With You: A ‘macaron’-sweet read! This was a book review that took its time making its way into my blog.
- Do you enjoy finding out what ‘xyz’ day it is on any day of the year? For example, today(March 3rd) is National Anthem Day here in the US as well as I Want You to be Happy Day (I do!). I do enjoy discovering these fun holidays and sometimes add them to my kids’ lunch notes. Here is a list of literary holidays for those of you who need an excuse to do something bookish, and for those of you who don’t as well (like me!)
- My Magic Monday post for IMWAYR found its way into the blogosphere on Thursday:) and I had the following reads included in that post.
- Fast Enough: Bessie Stringfield’s First Ride: Picture book review. (4 – 8 years)
- Lest We Forget: The Passage from Africa into the Twenty-First Century: History/Non-fiction (12 years and older): Book review
- Hip Hop Speaks to Children: A Celebration of Poetry with a Beat (A Poetry Speaks Experience): Poetry (ages 8 and up): Book review
- I, Too, Sing America: Three Centuries of African American Poetry: Poetry (grades 5 and up): Book review
Next Week/Current Reads:
- Bird by Bird: Anne Lamott (had to return it to the library and then was placed on hold again, finally back with me; review week of 3/11
- There are more in the current reading list that I will review this week.

I need to get back into my reading groove. You have certainly inspired me to read more and write more. Sometimes we just need to check back in with our goals.
glad to get you back into your reading groove, Cindy.. 🙂
I LOVE to read! I’m reading The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein, Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and Lead Like a Pirate by Shelley Burgess & Beth Houf. I’m so inspired.
Wash Your Face has been in my sights for a while now, the other two are new to me and I will check those out .. thank you!
Last year I had a calendar that told me what holiday it was every day. I probably should have gotten another one for this year. I miss it. Have a great week!
i have seen those calendars and they are definitely cool..
Wow, you are busy! I love to read but rarely find the time. You’ve inspired me though, and I’m grabbing my book to put it beside my bed to read a bit each night!
glad i inspired you 🙂
All the books and poems sound really interesting. I used to be able to read an entire book in less than two days now I don’t have enough time to.
thank you Luci.. I know what you are saying – i have those days every so often too
Wow sounds like you have been busy with your reading. I must make more time to read more, as it is a relaxing activity xx
🙂 it is !
