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.
How have you all been these past two weeks?
Here things have been okay. The baby is doing fine, but one of our cats isn’t doing so great. And he certainly didn’t have the greatest vet visit (though that was his own fault, not the vets).
He had to get his blood drawn and he went balistic. It took three people to do it and one large glove. Afterwards he had to be put on oxygen so he wouldn’t have something like a heart attack on the drive back. His heart rate is way too high so he has heart medication for now. We have another visit this Tuesday so we’ll see how he is doing then. He is doing better, but he’s getting old.
What else was I going to say? Oh I made a buddy reading page now. And I’ve linked most of the books I have on my physical tbr so you can see if maybe we have some matching books.
I got and finished The Last Star. Now I mostly read without the dustjacket on with hardcovers, and after reading The Last Star I had these on my fingers. I’ve had it happen before. Have any of you had that happen. It’s kind of weird and it doesn’t just wash off very easily.
I had a lot to do this last half of the week. Fun things. But I had a few nights of bad sleep and I didn’t end up feeling too great physically. My voice went hoarse again, and I ended up cancelling on volunteering on Thursday night. But on Friday I felt a bit better. I painted my nails and tried the newspaper nails thing. I guess it turned out okay, but it isn’t perfect.
Then on Friday night there was a book club evening in a book store in Zwolle where we were going to talk about Diversity. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda was one book we were going to discuss. There was another one but I didn’t read that. It wasn’t entirely nessecary. Unfortunately because of the voice there wasn’t much to say. I always get very awkward with other people that I don’t know and my voice didn’t really help much with that since I’ve had so much trouble with my voice over the years. Hopefully next time will be better on that front. But it was still fun. You can see a group picture on the book stores instagram page.
We got a goodiebag at the end. Here is some of the swag~
Saturday was just busy running around doing things, and tonight we’ll be having dinner with my husband’s siblings. We have to make the starter, so we’ll see how that goes.
I’m actually not reading anything actively at the moment. June I’ll pick up some books. But tomorrow I have to write out 5 reviews or so, haha.
What I Watched
★ Lewis Season 8 – I love Lewis. I do. The relationship between the two main characters is great. Though the dynamic shifted a bit in this season, and I missed some of their natural easy humor that we got in earlier seasons.
★ The Heavy Water War – DNF. It’s only six episodes but the first three were so slow that I lost interest. It was a series I bought on dvd for my husband’s birthday back in March and he enjoyed it, so that was good.
★ Falling Skies Season 4 – While I really like this show, I have a hard time getting into each of the seasons first 2-3 episodes or so. After that I am back in and I am sad when the season ends. The romance portion of this season was a bit unnessecary for me to be honest, and some of the scenes were shot so dark that it was hard to see what was going on. But I love how Tom and Weaver have united.
