Sunday Post 32 | A Graduation Kind of a Weekend

We took a day trip yesterday and watched my daughter’s virtual graduation with her and our younger daughter, then took them both for a late lunch. It was a nice day, though a bit hard to believe she is going to be starting her career in just a few short weeks.

My blog hit two milestones this week:

How was your week?

I hope you come back to see the following. I have a book review posted TODAY, and I linked it in here so you don’t miss it:

  • Monday (6/28): YA Contemporary| Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Tuesday (6/29): Domestic Thriller Book Review| The House Guests by Emilie Richards⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Wednesday (6/23): WWW Wednesday
  • Thursday (6/24): Medical Thriller Book Review |The Bone Code by Kathy Reichs ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I tried most of the first season of Intelligence with David Schwimmer on the Peacock streaming app this week. I kind of liked it. It originally airs on Sky One which is a UK network/channel and it is very British. I don’t always get British humor and that was really obvious when I was watching this.

Thank you for stopping by this week. I look forward to chatting with you in the comments. 😊

  1. You must be an extremely proud mum. Virtual graduation seemed very futuristic even a year ago. Now we see it as normal. For me this virus has made me more grateful for what I took for granted before. A simple meal with my daughter and eighteen month old granddaughter would have been taken for granted, now it is the highlight of my week.

    1. I guess it pops up on the WordPress app on my iPad. I go back and forth between my iPad and my computer, so if it doesn’t show up through the website, then it must be the app. It comes up, I screen shot it so I can share, and then it goes away and is just a note in my notifications. It’s very cool – celebratory – with falling confetti and stuff ❤️


  2. I was trying to decide which Harlequin Trade widgets/blog tours to join. I see you already made your selections! Congrats on the milestones.

    1. I chose all of them. Usually I’m good with that. Only occasionally do I find that I should have been a bit more discriminating. Can’t wait to find out which ones you are doing!


  3. A big congrats with your daughter’s graduation and your two milestones achieved this week. Also, I have to say, I’m impressed how organised your are with next week’s posts already planned.

    1. Accounting seems to suit her. I just hope she likes working for an accounting firm. I kind of pictured her with a smaller employer but she had different ideas 😊

  5. Wow, congratulations on the graduation! Both my kids graduated virtually from university, one last spring and one this spring. To be honest, I was kind of happy to avoid the graduation crowds. And congratulations again on 500 blog posts! And 50k views! Amazing!

    1. I still have one in college. She will graduate, hopefully, next spring. But I’m totally with you on the crowds. I am not looking forward to that.

  7. You’ve had an exciting week. Congrats on your blogging milestones! I should check my stats to see where I’m at. That is a great haul from NetGalley. The thrillers especially caught my eye. Hope you enjoy them!

  8. Glad you had such a wonderful weekend, Tessa – hope your daughter enjoys her new career! I received some of those widgets (Inkyard Press I think?) and downloaded two of them, but may go back for a third. And congrats on your milestones!

    1. They all looked awesome to me. Usually I pick and choose from the Inkyard Press tours but they focused on fantasy and mystery/thrillers this time and you know how excited I am by both genres ❤️
