The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.
This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
Writing: Still working hard on my latest draft!
What I Read:
I continued reading The Witch Haven by Sasha Peyton Smith.
I finished listening to Supernova by Marissa Meyer and started listening to The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.
TV We Watched:
The final season of Supernatural. We didn’t have a chance to watch any this week, so we still have three episodes left!
The Amazing Race. Still watching this one too!
Agility. Digit has been having a really hard time with the teeter-totter during our agility classes. He basically won’t go past the middle, even when we’re holding onto it. Just refuses to budge! So, Scott built me our own teeter for at-home practice!! The incredible thing is that, Digit took to it right away, and he’s already a genius at using it! He even does it at the second of the three possible heights with no problem. We tried to make the teeter just like the one in class (besides the base), so hopefully his skills will transfer. I’ll take a video later today of him doing it and put it in next week’s Sunday Post, but for now, here’s a pic of my husband’s awesome agility handiwork skills!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

Danielle has to read books of “literary merit” for her AP Lit class, so we bought The Handmaid’s Tale and The Midnight Library to read together. And we had our SCBWI meeting in person for the first time in a year and a half at Barnes and Noble. so I bought Game Changer by Neal Shusterman.
I received Our Violent Ends from Simon & Schuster for review! Thanks!!
