This is my own version of a weekly book haul and all things new on fuonlyknew.

I’m also linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Sunday Post

Some chit chat.

It’s a new year and I’m hoping the rest of it is better than the start. These frigid temps are crazy. I know many may laugh at our dips into the 20s, but, if you’re not used to it, it’s horrible. Enough already! I can’t recall ever having a winter vortex last this long. I miss warm salty breezes, birds singing, flip flops and the pool. If I got in now, I’d probably die of shock. LOL

Remember this photo from last week? How beautiful and green this was?


Well, after temps in the low 20s every night this week, it now looks like this. But, it will bounce back in the spring and probably be even larger.


My banana trees got frozen. For those who don’t know, the trees are filled with water so they freeze easily. While these look dead now, once I trim them back in a couple of months they will grow quickly and hopefully I will get some bananas again this year. I’m thinking of doing a running feature about the process once I get started.



The oranges are hanging in there. I’ve noticed the branches are dipping closer to the ground and I’m afraid they might have frozen. I’ll pick some and check them out this week.



That’s it for this week. I hope you had a Happy New Year!
