Weekly Rewind: February 2-8


The Weekly Rewind is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.


I’m a big Olympics fan, even though I don’t normally pay attention to most of these sports every four years. I just love the whole atmosphere of the Olympics. I’m anticipating less reading time over the next two weeks, but hopefully a little more blogging time. I can’t just sit and watch the Olympics so I’m typically doing something else at the same time. I’ll probably be on the computer quite a bit, unless I find something else to do. I am thinking of organizing my physical bookshelves while I watch, so we’ll see. Thinking about it and doing it aren’t always the same thing.

I’m participating in Project 365, an ongoing feature where you take (at least) one photo a day every day and post it. I have a separate blog for that but I’m reposting thumbnails in the Weekly Rewind each week. If you’re really interested in my photos, head on over to Jenna’s 2014 Project 365 and follow me there. I usually do a little writeup giving some more details about the photo I’ve taken.

  1. We haven’t been home to watch any of the Olympics yet, my daughter will be watching later today. 🙂 Enjoy the new books and your week.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I had a goal of taking one picture per day every day last year. I didn’t quite make it, but truthfully the underlying goal was just to take more pictures. Since Husband and I got married we really slacked off in that area. Hope you enjoy the Olympics. And is it a little weird that I got excited when you said “organize my physical bookshelf”??? 🙂 Have a great week!

    • I LOOKED at my shelves last night, but that’s as far as I got. I’m going to be clearing some books out once I find some boxes for them. Spring is coming (although you wouldn’t know it with the way the weather has been), and around there that means the book donation bins start showing up in grocery stores. There are several used book sales in the spring, so everybody’s collecting them. It’s a convenient way to donate as long as I remember to keep a box or bag of books in my car to take in with me.

  3. I like to watch the Olympics as well, maybe because I’m not very sporty and not an adrenaline junkie at all, so that’s as much adrenaline as it gets for me. I like the look of Kellie’s Diary, and also Flavours – tasty! Oh, and that Project 365 is very interesting, I guess the picture can be of anything (as long as it’s not offensive etc). Great idea!
