With the Weekly Book Wrap-Up, I give you a bit of an insight into all the new books that have arrived at my place. No matter if I won a giveaway, got approved for a reviewer´s copy, an ARC, or just bought one myself. Everything that I add to my shelves, in what way ever and read during the past week or am still reading, I will write about it. And maybe I tell you a bit about the upcoming things on Inkvotary, that is if I don´t forget it and have something to share with you *smile*

I am linking up with Caffeinated Reviewer and hope you´ll have fun reading it and maybe get the one or the other book inspiration.

Stacking The Shelves #160

No new books during the past week.

Sunday Post #117

The past week was an uneventful one. We had mixed weather with some sunshine, colder temperatures, wind, and rain.

On Monday I went into town to get some things done. During the afternoon I worked a couple of hours to prepare the rest of the soil for some plants and seeds. Before I got sick with Covid, I had bought some seed that is worked into a fabric. It is called seed carpet and easy to use. I spent the first half of the week doing all the preparation and I am still amazed how many ivory roots I am still digging out even though I had done nothing but that last fall.

Wednesday was a stormy day. A severe storm destroyed many things, and my red tulips went from this

to that within a few moments.

On Friday and Saturday, I was finally able to plant bitterroot, edging lobelia, sweet alyssum, stonecrop, and again some seed called “wild herbs” and others and start to build the garden ways I will need in the future to get rid of all the weeds and other things that might come out of the soil but aren´t welcome anymore. Now, the garden still looks like a single flat surface, seen plant-wise, but I hope that will change soon. Some of the seeds are supposed to grow about half a meter high and hopefully will stop people from throwing their trash into our garden.

Saturday was also my blog´s fifth birthday. Well, sort of. I had originally started my blog on December 23rd, 2015 (that is where the five years come from) but renamed it on May 8th, 2017 (that is where the day comes from). Now, while writing this I notice that it is a bit confusing and well … mixed up … oh boy…

I have resumed my running training and expand my route a little more every day. It seems to be the best way for me to gain my before-Covid-fitness-level back and to feel better. My sense of taste is still disordered, and I am still dealing with fatigue. But other than that, I am fine. More or less.

Early Sunday morning I had sent my stepmom her mother´s day card and hope that she and my dad were able to enjoy a bit of the gorgeous sun we´ve had all day. The text says: wishing you a nice mother´s day.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. Good luck with the garden! Sorry to hear about the tulips, we had a similar thing happen. I like that you're sharing garden pics- that's always fun to see how things grow.

    Take care and have a great week. :)

    1. Thank you. It is a good feeling to see how things start to grow. And keep growing *smile*

  2. Storms always get my daffodils and tulips. I've gotten to the point where as soon as I see blooms I run out and trim a few so that I'll at least get to enjoy them a little bit! I hope you have a great week!

    1. They survived all the other storms we´ve had over the past weeks. Unfortunately, not this one.

  3. Happy Blogaversary! I am glad you are getting better from COVID. I love the tulips. You are doing a lot of work in your garden. I did most of my work last fall so I am happy to enjoy this spring.

    1. Well, I knew that I would have to do most of the work this spring and early summer. Now, I am curious to see if my planting plans will be a success.
