The Sunday Post #2

We are so excited to be posting our second Sunday Post update! We are linking up to The Sunday Post via the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon at Readerbuzz!

Update

Olivia Update

Olivia 😸 has been on the prowl this morning! She is always assessing her environment to find hidden catnip toys (her favourite is Yeowww catnip Purr!-muda Triangle – she is very happy with it).

On the prowl.

Another favourite of hers this summer is her cooling mat which she loves to lounge on in her office. Though, she has little to no interest in her hammock. We’ve tried placing a familiar blanket her grandmother made for her on top which helps a bit. But, alas, the cat hammock is still an unknown situation in the household!

Olivia, uncertain re: her new hammock.
Plotting her escape.

Life

The weather outside has been a mixture of rain/thunderstorms and clear, sunny weather. The rain has been very much welcome, though, as the last few summers have been terribly hot and dry. It looks as though today is the perfect day to get a few plants for our garden – look for a garden update next week!

Reading

We are still working our way through Radium Girls, Wildseed Witch, and Surviving the City. Alas … we have not completed any books this week! However, we did host reading sprints on our booktube channel yesterday which were a ton of fun; thus, we’ve made a fair bit of progress on Wildseed Witch and hope to finish it today!

Blog

This week was all about setting up our new blog! I transferred from Blogger to WordPress.com simply because I wanted to easily use various plugins, I like the community aspect and various other features, and finally I wanted to learn how to use a new-to-me platform.

One minor hiccup when changing domain hosting platforms … What I did not expect was how long it would take for my DNS to propagate – basically meaning that I was unable to access my site for more than a day 😅

But we are still here!

And my cat Olivia and I are SO happy to continue blogging so we can share our thoughts about books and check out everyone’s posts. Thank you for being here!

Thank you!

  1. What a beautiful kitty! One of my FB friends got a hammock for her beagle and he completely ignored it for a while but she finally shared a picture of him lounging in it. Maybe Olivia just needs time.

    I blogged on Blogger from 2009 – 2016, took a long break, then came back on WordPress in 2020. I don’t know how much things changed on Blogger while I was gone but I prefer WP to Blogger-as-I-knew-it.

    Enjoy your week!

    1. Yes I think Olivia might need some time with the hammock! Aw beagles are just adorable.

      Thanks for your feedback: re blog hosts! Take care and have a great week!

  2. It looks like Olivia has been up to all kinds of fun things, and I look forward to hearing about your gardening next week too! And this week wasn’t one for finishing books for me either (hence my last-minute picture book post), but I hope you’re able to knock one or two off your currently-reading list. And switching to WordPress is a good call—I use Blogger, and although it’s free, it’s an unsavory combination of glitchy and lacking in features. And it looks like WordPress is already letting your blog flourish—the new design is so pretty! Thanks so much for the wonderful post, Sara!

  3. Olivia is beautiful. I loved hearing about her toys and new hammock. I just moved this past weekend so my cats are still in alert mode as they get used to the new smells. I hope you’ve had a great week and continue to have one still.

    1. Thank you, Jenni! It does take a bit of time for cats to get used to all the smells. But I am sure they’ll adjust soon and love their new home!
      Have a great week!

  4. Olivia is such a beautiful cat! I like seeing the pictures of her. That’s too bad she doesn’t like the hammock very much. This summer has been very dry here, so we could use some rain.

    Switching from blogger to wordpress is a bit of a hassle, I did it a few years ago. I hope you get the hang of everything soon. Too bad your DNS stuff took so long.

    I hope you have a greta week!
