A lot going on | Weekly Snapshot

Hello everyone on a very wet day, at least in Southwest Ohio! We are expecting so much rain this week that I'm feeling happy on behalf of our garden. It's going to make stepping outside a little challenging though but there will be plenty of dry breaks with beautiful cool weather, so that should help. 

Life last weekCouple of weeks back, we had a Covid-19 scare. A consultant who visited my husband's office the same day my husband was in office (he usually works from home) got diagnosed with Covid-19 couple of days later. Many who were in the office that day got tested. My husband thankfully drew a negative but a few others got positive results. We've overall been extremely careful when outside - always wearing masks, often sanitizing hands and frequently touched surfaces, and doing the same routine once we reach home. That said, it's always sad and scary to hear about someone close or nearby having tested positive. Sometime last year, when the flu season was in full…

Armchair BEA: Wrap-Up, Thank You and Why I Loved Armchair BEA


And what a fun week it was! Armchair BEA was a huge success to me! I can particularly attest to that by saying that I didn't do much work at all this week - at least for the first four days. By Friday, I was slightly panicky, and because of my desire to end the week with a feel-good sentiment, I managed to work seriously yesterday. With my Tweetdeck tuned to #BookBloggerCon.

If you haven't checked out my posts yet, here are the links.

Thanks to the wonderful organizers - Tif, Emily, Michelle, Florinda, and Danielle - for having set up this excellent event, that
  • Gave me a chance to be a part of BEA and BBC from my comfy chair.
  • Introduced me to a whole new set of truly wonderful bloggers, some who I have never come across before, and can't believe I missed them for so long!
  • Spread a lot of blogger love.
  • Gave us a chance to connect more as friends than bloggers during the Twitter party on Thursday.
  • Gave me an excuse not to work this week.
  • Gave me an excuse not to write reviews this week.
  • Won me 9 wonderful books, without even going to BEA.
  • Introduced me to a ten-year old blogger!

*Applause, Applause*

I wish I would have done this after reading all of your posts this week. Glad you had such a good time!

I wasn't able to go to BEA and BBC so I was really looking forward to Armchair BEA. Then I discovered I was too busy to even do that. So I'm going to spend my extra day off catching up on all the fun you all had!

I have to say I am envious regarding the BEA...still being a semi newbie in this world of book blogging, I didn't know enough about it or where to sign up. Hoping next time, I will particpate. Note to self and other bloggers...please remind me and lead me in the right direction lol.
