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 week wasn’t a good week, it just didn’t go as smoothly. I just felt a bit down and struggled to get things done, everything just felt like it takes so much effort. I feel like this lockdown thing is finally getting to me. I think I just need to do some new things as every week just feels so similar. So I am trying to change things up by baking/ cooking new things, picking up books by new to me authors and new games. Hopefully that will help a bit.
The weather has been dreary this week, grey skies, windy/ stormy weather and even some rain. That definitely didn’t help my mood. It’s been cold too. I am looking forward to some spring. Usually I don’t mind winter as much, but everything just looks so dark and dreary and I am looking forward to some sun and the plants blooming and growing again.
I did get most of the important work I had done and work has been going okay, but the fact I haven’t gotten any new tours has got me down a bit. This business is always so up and down and it’s hard to deal with at times. I still have plenty of work for this month at least, so I am trying to staying focused on that. I sent out two media kits for future tours this week. I had two tours I organized that took place this week. And I worked on some assistant work as well. I finished a porject I was working on for one of my authors and it was nice to get that wrapped up.
I also spend some time doing my research for my new phone and finally ordered everything. Hopefully my research pays off and it all works fine. Fingers crossed.
I tried a new recipe for oat bars. They have peanut butter, maple syrup, banana and oats and that’s about it. Then some chocolate on top. They taste great and are quite filling too.
I also made some mujadara, basically a type of fried rice with cumin in it and served with hummus. It was delicious.
What did I read this week?
Let’s Go Out was such a great read! This one really resonated with me and it was such a beautiful story and romance. Marketing Matters didn’t quite resonate with me, but it’s a decent read if you want an overview of some marketing techniques.
