The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a bit of a recap post of the week where you can link to the posts you made this week, share news, and even what you have been reading. Some categories might change per Sunday.
When you are clearly the cutest kitty of ever ❤
In my last biweekly sunday post I mentioned that we were going to see The Jungle Book that weekend. I reallly enjoyed it. I loved seeing how the animals were done. Unfortunately there were a lot of talkers in the theaters, and someone kicking in the back of my chair.
My 23 week check-up was fine. I gained a bit much but my baby bump has grown a bit much. Blood pressure was still good. Yeay for that. Baby moved around a lot. Other than that I’ve been busy still slowly going through each room to tidy up and clean. I have gathered a lot of stuff that needs to be thrown away. Unfortunately we don’t have a normal waste container anymore. Instead we need to walk a few streets with our garbage bags to a big underground one and pay with our pass. >.> It’s annoying and I can’t do it anymore because those garbage bags are heavy.
We had good weather for most of that week. Lots of sun. The week after that was just all rain. At least we never get serious flooding here like in Houston. Wow. They say we should be getting better weather this upcoming week starting with this Sunday, but we’ll see. So far they haven’t been getting a lot right with the forecasts here. It was supposed to be terrible weather on Kings Day last Wednesday, but in Zwolle, where the King visited, it was pretty sunny like it was here.
This coming week we have Commemoration of the Dead on Wednesday evening and Liberation Day on Thursday. Thursday is also Ascension Day though.
Since Thursday I am hoarse again. Fun… Oh well, my pretty voice lasted for two months. I can’t complain about that. That’s a reasonable time considering these pregnancy hormones and acid reflux are a big influence on my voice.
Since Blog Ahead starts today I kept the blogging at a minimum this week (with the exception of writing and planning in some reviews). I didn’t want to get too far ahead, knowing myself, full of excitement about blog ahead, haha. I did change around some pages, and I added a page with some links with various read-a-thons to point you all in the right direction with a short description. Whenever I come across more they will be added.
When you are trying to be just as cute as the other kitty…
Currently Reading and Read-a-Thon Wrap Up
#Dewey’s 24H Read-a-Thon
I picked a lot of easy and short reads. My goal was to read for 10 hours and read a 1000 pages in total. I didn’t succeed on hourly reading. I read only a little over 9 hours. I slept a lot. I can never do these read-a-thons staying awake through the night. Especially not now. But I still like the social component to this read-a-thon. I did succeed in the amount of pages. I read 1266 pages. So that was good!

As I posted earlier this week, I will be participating in Blog Ahead Mini. For the record I wanted to mention here that I currently have fourteen planned in posts. Seven of those are planned in during the two weeks of Blog Ahead. So after those weeks I will still have seven planned in blogs. To achieve the main goal I will need to have twenty-two planned in posts after Blog Ahead.
