Sunday News #11

Sunday Post and Sunday Salon are blog news memes hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer and Reader Buzz, respectively. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and other things.

I’m feeling a little anxious. I met with my doctor on Tuesday to talk about the next steps regarding the digestive issues I’ve been having. Because I’ve been so sick for so long and because I threw up some blood the Friday before I met with him, he scheduled me to do an endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow.

I’ve done both before and I know the procedures aren’t that bad. The prep’s the worst part and I begin that today at 5pm my time. I’m mostly anxious because I’m worried about what they’re going to find or not find.


This week on the blog:


I’m almost done reading FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell. I’m hoping to finish it today so I can post my review tomorrow. I want to start rereading and finish THE SILVER CHAIR by CS Lewis for the Narniathon21 by Thursday. Hopefully, I can make both of these happen.


I listened to and watched Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa.” I love this song and I really love Weezer’s version of it. I also didn’t know Weezer got Weird Al to perform in the music video. I didn’t believe Corey when he told me it was Weird Al because it doesn’t look like him. I love that he’s not even playing the guitar.


I discovered a new cooking competition on Netflix called Is It Cake? It’s really interesting. The cake artists on the show are insanely talented! Some of the cakes look so real. It’s crazy!


I’m really loving the weather for the past few days. It has been so warm and sunny. It makes my happy.


I want the bookmark I made for my IRL book club to get here now! I’m so excited for how they turned out. I can’t wait to share them with everyone.


I need to gear up for later today and tonight as I go through the prep for my scopies. I know it’s not going to be fun, but hopefully they’ll help my doctors figure out what’s going on so I can start feeling better.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

    Hope your tests turn out fine. I’ve had both and my scope showed esophageal erosion from years of popping advil for my bad headaches.
    I’m going to watch your video because I remember watching some Weird Al music videos and they cracked me up.
    Have a healthy and enjoyable week ahead, Jenni.

      Thanks, Mia! 🙂 I’m kind of wondering if my doctor will find something similar as I’m and Ibuprofen popper too. I’ve stopped using Ibuprofen in the last two weeks, but that’s not enough time to undo the years of using it.

    I hope the tests go well and the doctors can get you back to full health asap. Hearing you mention The Chronicles of Narnia series has me wanting to re-read them – especially since I was a teen last time I did so! I’m sure I’d find lots to enjoy as an adult.

      Thanks, Louise! 🙂 It’s been a fun reread. I’ve really enjoyed participating in the Narniathon21. If you do end up rereading the series, I hope you enjoy it.

    Hi there Jenni! Aaaah… good luck with the procedures tomorrow. I do hope it’s nothing serious and that they can have all sorted out real soon.

    I’m going to read your review for Nine Perfect Strangers now, that was a book I loved!

    Do take a book with you tomorrow and and enjoy the rest of your week. Take care of yourself!

    PS: Thanks for the advice on my blog, I will take a look and see if it works!

    I hope both procedures go well and it’s nice they will do them both at the same time (only one time going under). It is a fine line between wanting them to find something and not…hopefully they will figure out the issues and it will be an easy fix. Have a great week.

    Good luck with your appts and I hope all is well! The anticipation (and colonoscopy prep haha) are the worst/ not fun. 🙂 I haven’t had one of those yet but I’ve heard… and looking forward to seeing what you think of Fangirl!

    I hope the scopies will go as well as possible and will help to get to the bottom of why you have been unwell. Take care, happy reading and blessings be upon you. 🙏🙂

    Good luck with your endoscopy and colonoscopy. I do know the prep for colonoscopy is no fun, but you know that. I hope all goes well. Take care.

    I hope all your tests go well! My doctor mentioned the colonoscopy soon since I’m turning 50 this year. I think you’re right that the preparation is probably the worst part from what I hear. Fingers crossed it all goes well!

    I hope that they find what’s causing your issues and that it’s something easily treated. Fingers crossed 🤞 ! That cake competition on Netflix sounds interesting. I’m going to have to check it out. Best of luck tomorrow!

    Is It Cake? sounds like great fun. I wish I could find more that are like The Great British Baking Show. It’s my favorite.

    Sending good thoughts and prayers your way for the procedure.

      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Deb. 🙂 I really like The Great British Baking Show too. There’s a couple I’ve found on Hulu like it. After I get home from my procedure today (I’m just about to leave), I’ll have to look them up and let you know what they are. Have fun in Paris.

      The name of the two shows are Britian’s Best Home Cook and Celebrity Best Home Cook. Mary Berry is one of the judges in both of them.

      Thanks, Sophie! 🙂 The procedures went well. Now, I just get to wait for the results of the biopsy of the different areas of my digestive tract.

    I hope both procedures go well and that the prep isn’t too terrible. I just heard someone else talking about how much they loved Is It Cake? I need to give that one a try! Have a wonderful week!

      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Katherine! 🙂 The prep wasn’t so bad this time, actually. And, the procedures went well. Now, I just get to wait for the results of the biopsy of the different areas of my digestive tract. I hope you like Is It Cake? if you watch it.

      Thank you! 🙂 My procedures went well. I’m now just waiting on the results of the biopsy of the different areas of my digestive tract. I hope you enjoy Rainbow Rowell as much as I do when you read her books.

      I really like “Island in the Sun” too. My favorite is “The Sweater Song.”

      My procedures went well. I’m now just waiting on the results of the biopsy of the different areas of my digestive tract.

      I’m glad you’re having pleasant weather and that you’ve been gardening. It sounds really nice.
