The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This was not my week. It started off on the wrong foot and while it got better, it still didn’t get all smoothly. It was just one of those weeks were multiple things went wrong and just piled up. Luckily I did got a bunch of work done nonetheless. I put a new sign-up post live for a bookstagram blitz (there are even some physical review copies available), some other Lola’s Blog Tours work and I did some hours of assistant work.
On Monday I woke up with an migraine with aura, those are never fun and I felt off and tired most of the day. I tried doing things like normal, but underestimated how crap I felt and went back to bed for a nap and took it slow the rest of the day. Tuesday I felt a lot better luckily, but still struggled to focus a bit and that’s been a bit of the theme for the rest of the week. It’s hard to motivate myself and focus.
Then on Wednesday one of the parakeets we’re pet sitting for almost landed in a pot of boiling curry. We wanted to put her back in the cage as we were going to have dinner, but she didn’t want to and then flew into the kitchen. We didn’t know she knew were the kitchen was and could fly there, so we had to chase her and prevent her from landing in dinner. One of the parakeets can fly well, the other one can hardly fly yet, but he can sing sort of and likes to (try) sing along when I have music on.
And then when I was trying to leave a review for a book I finished, I found out Amazon blocked me from reviewing. Ugh I was afraid this might happen at some point. I already e-mailed them, so I really hope they will reinstate my review privileges as I know how much Amazon reviews mean to authors and I want to be able to review there.
Okay now for some more positive things that happened this week. I’ve been playing this calming game called Abzu, which is great. You are a diver and explore these underwater levels and see the different fishes and animals. It’s really fun, relaxing and it’s just a beautiful game. I also won a giveaway for 3 months Audible, which is awesome so I can get some of the books that aren’t on Storytel. I have my eye on a cozy mystery book narrated by Nicole Poole that isn’t on Storytel.
We’ve been watching some movies and series again lately. We just started watching Star Trek The Next Generation and watched the Venom movie last week and Solo before that.
I’ve been cleaning out some of my Facebook again. This time I unfollowed some groups that took too much of my feed space up and had lots of posts I wans’t interested in. And it’s amazing how now I am seeing posts from pages and groups that I rarely saw before. Definitely a good move.
And the weather has been weird around here lately. Last week it felt like spring, but this week felt like autumn. We’ve had lower temperatures again, hard winds and rain.
And now it’s time for some pictures
These are the pita breads with veggies I mentioned last week. I bought them again this week, one of them is with red bell pepper and the other with spinach.
And this is Quito the cat we’re pet sitting. He’s a great cat and fun to have around.
What did I read this week?
I finally finished the non-fiction book Newsletter Ninja, it was such a great and informative read. Definitely would recommend it. And I finished Silent Bud Deadly, which was really good with a great mystery.
What did I cook for dinner this week?

I bought Ever Strange on release day, not only was it 99 cents, but I’ve read books by this author before and this one sounds really good. My Fair Captain was on my wishlist and I suddenly spotted that it got discounted to 99 cents, so I bought that one too.
