Sunday News #29

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 couple of emotions today. First, I’m feeling very anxious because my sweet 19-year-old Dax has a severe tooth infection. She’s scheduled to have it pulled on Wednesday. They have to put her under and we’re worried about her kidneys. Hopefully, she’ll come out of it just fine and start feeling a lot better.

I’m also feeling exhausted. It’s been a busy week full of unpacking, organizing, and other stuff. Fortunately, Corey and I are almost done. Unpacking’s taking as long as it has because we’re getting rid of things we don’t want/need anymore and it’s a time consuming project.


This week on the blog:


I actually read a little bit this week. I started THE DRESS OF VIOLET TAFFETA by Tessa Arlen. I’m not far enough into it to decide what I think yet, but I think I’ll enjoy it.


I’ve been listening to my “Faves” playlist this week. It’s been fun getting back to some of my favorite songs since I’ve specifically been listening to 80s music the past few weeks.

I love songs written by The Beatles AND I don’t like most of the original versions that are actually sung by them. Blasphemy, I know. I love The Beatles’ version of “Come Together,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Strawberry Fields.” For every other song they wrote, I like cover versions better.

I recently added a cover of “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da” to my playlist and I really love it. It’s by Gabriela Bee.


Corey and I finished STRANGER THINGS! Holy crap! Season 5’s going to be a doozy.

We also finally watched the new Scream movie that came out in January. It’s also entitled SCREAM, but it’s really SCREAM 5. I love the franchise and this one was a fun addition. View Spoiler »


Back in May, I participated in Wyrd & Wonder. I signed up for the giveaways and won a couple. One of the things I won was a handmade pride friendship bracelet. It was made by @maelia_cybele on Instagram. She let me pick the pattern and shipped it all the way from France. Anyway, I got it in the mail yesterday and I absolutely love it.

Wanting Anticipating

I got everything worked out with my primary care physician and LASIK surgeon. I’m now anticipating the surgery, which is set for this coming Tuesday.

Needing Hoping

I hope Dax’s and my surgery go well. I also hope the result of my LASIK will be everything I want it to be.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

    I’m sending good thoughts and prayers for smooth surgeries for both you and Dax.

    I hope you are able to get things unpacked and organized. We just got new floors and we had to move everything a couple of times. We decided to get rid of lots.

    Beautiful bracelet!

      Thank you, Deb! 😀 I appreciate the well wishes for Dax and me.

      Getting rid of stuff feels good, doesn’t it? My husband’s very minimalistic. I am to a point. I love to collect things like Hard Rock Cafe cups, llama figurines and stuffies, Star Wars Legos, and Funkos. I put them all in my library so the rest of the house is more sparse. 😀
