The Sunday Post #87 (10.4.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey.  
      
It was a crummy week weather-wise, which matched my mood all week...work is getting the best of me and it's not good. I'm really frustrated and stressed and hoping it will work itself out soon. You know it's bad when you get a jury questionnaire and hope that that will mean you actually get called for jury duty soon! Anyway, maybe a day of baking will cheer me up - I'm thinking some apple squares will help - plus it will make the house smell so good!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  4. I hope things improve for you soon! Jury duty kind of scares me. I've been selected three times but every time the case was dismissed so I didn't have to go.

  5. I hope the baking helped destress. Share the apple square recipe please! Sounds delicious. I used to work in the court system and would have loved to have a person just wishing for jury duty! We heard so many crazy excuses I should write a book.

  6. I hope work slows down and the stress diminishes. Mmm can smell the apple pie, hope it helped. I've never been called for jury duty, interesting you get a questionaire first.

  7. Well, at least jury duty would be something different. I was happy not to be chosen when I reported for jury duty.

  8. Aw, wishing for jury service is not good! Hope work becomes less stressful soon.
