The Sunday Post #39



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its 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.

Life:

And yet another week has flown by. I can’t believe we are already two weeks in to January 2017. Is time going by faster and faster or what? Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with how fast time passes. I’m seriously considering to just stop sleeping! LOL!

On Monday I went to the zoo with my grandmother. We had these coupons so one of us could go for free. And since it had been ages since I last went to the zoo I was really looking forward to spending the day there with my grandmother. And although the weather wasn’t really good and it was really cold we had a great time. There weren’t a lot of people so we could watch all the animals in our own pace. Definitely a fun day. I felt like a little girl all over again. 

Tuesday and Wednesday I had to work again. Work was busy but good and it felt great to be back at work again after me being sick last week. On Thursday I went to the movie ‘Allied’ with my movie buddy. I will share my thoughts on that one this Tuesday. I’ll just say one thing.. I enjoyed seeing Brad Pitt in action again!

And Friday and this weekend I had to work again. It’s been snowing, and melting, and snowing since Thursday evening so the roads are a little crazy but I’ll survive. Let’s just hope those people who don’t know how to drive in winter weather stay home.

Books & Blogging:

I had a pretty good reading week. I was able to read every day for at least an hour, most days anyway. Blogging wise I managed to keep up with my prescheduled posts which still feels pretty good. And I finally received a copy of 'Talking As Fast As I Can' which really made my week.

Another My Favorite post came out this week. This time about My Favorite.. Thing About Winter. I’m definitely having fun making this post.

On Friday I shared a new post ‘Adventures In Nursing: Becoming a Nurse’. I was a little nervous about sharing that one since it’s very personal, but I liked writing it. I think I’m going to try it out for at least a little while. Maybe if I’ll keep liking it I can keep going. I sure have enough nursing stories to share.

I hope you guys had a great week too. What are you reading? Any new great books on your shelves?

  4. It sounds like you had a good week. I'm not finding that January's flying by at the moment. In fact it feels like it's dragging a little and I'm struggling - wishing I was still on holidays but feeling like my work days are neverending.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the zoo and that you're getting some reading done.

    1. Whaha Thanks Tressa! I had a lot of fun making that pic. I couldn't stop laughing and I think we must have made at least 20 pic's before this one was made.

  8. I love sleeping too much, so there's no way I'd quit sleeping to have more time for other stuff *grins* I just have to make do, I guess.
    Your new books all look really good, Maureen, and I hope you'll enjoy them.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week and happy reading.
