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…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Hello blog friends, I miss you! I haven’t been much in the mood for blogging or reading these past three weeks. I feel like I just can’t concentrate. I’ve had several meltdowns and panic attacks. It’s hard not to worry over the unknown. However, I am managing my anxiety by doing yoga daily and trying to stay in the present moment instead of worrying over tomorrow or next week. It’s such a surreal situation it is hard to believe it is even happening.
I also stopped watching the news and limited my social media and that has helped alot. And somedays if I need a good cry, I will allow myself a five minute cry then I have to move on with my day with no more crying. Starting tomorrow it will be my third week working from home so that has been great and I am so very thankful that I am able to stay at home with my family.
onto my bookish updates…
recently on the blog:
I posted my thoughts on The Outsider by Stephen King which was terrific. I watched the mini-series with my husband and it was good, it lagged a little towards the latter episodes but that finale was fantastic. I loved the casting also. They changed the show somewhat from the book but I liked what they did with it.
in my mailbox:
I’m trying not to order anything online that is nonessential, but while ordering a thermometer and bandannas for making face masks, I ordered a copy of The Snow Leopard by by Peter Matthiessen for a read-along I found on Instagram a few weeks back. If I remember correctly April 27th is the online book discussion for this one. I like that it’s a classic.
The Tiger King of course. This has been the only tv documentary to really grab my attention lately. It is all kinds of crazy! Full of surprises actually. And messed up, I think owning wild cats as pets or for private zoos should be illegal but this makes for a great documentary.
I finished up a gift set I promised a friend of ours. I won’t be able to mail it to him for some time but I had fun with this project. I created the graph for the wall hanging myself and the patterns are my own. I like the results. This is the flag of Puerto Rico.
I mentioned I’ve been doing yoga daily to manage my stress, this is the link to one of the videos I use if anyone is interested. There are alot to choose for free on YouTube.
That’s all for now, I will be trying to blog hop here and there when I can. How are you holding up? I hope you are well and safe xo.
