The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
This week I had a week off from work. As I imagined these free days went by extremely fast and I can’t believe I have to start work again on Tuesday. It seemed like only yesterday when I wrote the last Sunday Post at the beginning of my vacation and now a whole week has already gone by. And what a fun and interesting week it was.
On Monday one of my girlfriends came over and we had a fun afternoon catching up, watching episodes of ‘Arrow’ and making very tasty panini’s with chicken and pesto. We had a great time and the episodes of ‘Arrow’ really were entertaining. I only saw one or two episodes when the show aired a view years ago, but I never got to see it further.. So far I really like it.
On Tuesday it was my man’s thirtieth birthday. We both don’t really like to celebrate our birthdays, but always do something fun together. This time, while my man had to work, I made a three course dinner and decorated the house a little bit. When he came home from work, I had some presents ready and we enjoyed a delicious and fun dinner. Looks good right??
Wednesday I had to stay home because we expected a package, so I had an amazing reading and blogging day. I cleaned my reading ‘spot’, took my blanket and a cup of tea and just read for hours. Sigh.. I love these kinds of days.
Thursday I was supposed to have another reading day, but things didn’t really go as planned. I read till around 1 p.m. and then I had to take my man’s grandfather to the ER. He needed to have a blood transfusion but the doctors wanted to check everything again so we sat and waited there until 6.30 p.m. before he was finally admitted. At the time I finally came home it was almost 7.45 and I was super tired and hungry. (Grandpa is already back home again!! :D)
On Friday my mom and I had another awesome day in Amsterdam because we wanted to see one of the exhibitions called 'Spanish Masters from the Hermitage'. Of course we also visited some bookshops and had a great lunch. I bought ‘Lady Midnight’ which I really wanted since I love Cassandra Clare. And I also bought my very first coloring book. I’m super excited about it because I wanted one for a very long time and it’s supposed to be very relaxing. I’m definitely going to try it out ASAP.
On Saturday my man and I went to an old-timer show. My man loves cars and we really needed a day with just the two of us. And a little road trip was definitely what we needed!!
So that was my week. I did a lot of reading, which was really necessary and wanted. And although I desperately wish I could have had a view more free days it definitely was a successful week.
How was your week? What did you read? And do you have a coloring book? What are your thoughts about it?
