The Sunday Post #36


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Life: 

This week has been a good one. Not a lot to tell you guys though. But for me it was definitely a good one. On Monday my nightshift ended and I came home, slept three hours and I went to the movie theater and saw ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’. Loved that movie!

On Tuesday one of my girlfriends came to visit and we had a lovely time. We talked a lot, I made a nice Italian Sandwich and we watched a view episodes of Arrow. We’re still just in the first season, but this is the series we watch together so we aren’t going very fast. It was a lovely day.

Wednesday and Thursday I had to work again, but it were good days. Not too busy, and we definitely had time to talk a little more with our patients which unfortunately is not always the case.

Friday I was able to do some work from home which was very nice. Since I’ve been working so much lately I’ve been very tired and it was nice to not set the alarm for a change. I work around 08.30 a.m. and then I did some work stuff. It was very relaxing and I definitely did more than I expected too.

And now.. I’m finally free this whole weekend after working the previous four. We are spending the weekend together with just the two of us. Which is definitely a good thing since we’re both so busy most of the days. Sunday will be our PJ day!! I’ll do the Sunday Post off course, but I’ll be sitting in my Pajama! LOL!!

Books & Blogging:
 
I definitely had some reading time this week and it was great. I feel so much more relaxed than I felt the previous weeks. I’m also planning to do a lot more reading this weekend. Sigh.. Happy me!!
Blogging wise it’s been going good too. I’ve had a busy week with every day a new post and next will be pretty booked to. I love it though.

Since I did a poll the other week which gave me a lot of positive reactions, I’m working on starting my own ‘Favorite’ meme next year. I still have a lot to work out but I’m excited about it and I hope I will be able to give you guys some more info soon.
And I’m thinking of adding my own ‘Life as a Nurse’ post at least once a month where I tell something about my life as a nurse. It feels like a good thing to do since being a Nurse is also such a big part of my life. Not sure about it yet though.

  1. Glad it was a good week! I need to see Fantastic Beasts yet, everyone seems to be loving it. And of course Arrow... I'm behind but Netflix has it so one of these days I'll catch up. :)

    Good luck with the new meme, and enjoy your weekend! :)

  3. I'm glad things have slowed down for you a bit, Maureen. And Sundays in PJs are the best :) I will have to get dressed soon, though, as one of my sons has a hockey game today...
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  4. Glad you had a good week. I really need to find time to see Fantastic Beasts this week at some point. Can't believe a HP movie is out that I haven't seen in the first couple of days!

  6. I'm so glad you enjoyed Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. :-) Your visit with your friend sounded so nice. It sounds like you have had a great week in reading and blogging, Maureen. I would love to read about your life as a nurse! I do hope you decide to add in that feature. That light switch picture is so perfect. Haha

    Have a great week, Maureen!

    1. I'm definitely thinking I will add the nurse feature. I'm getting a lot of nice feedback about it.
      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading! ;)

  7. It does sound like you've had a good week Maureen. I know what you mean though when you say there's not a lot to tell. Sometimes they're the best weeks. You're fully occupied and done lots of great stuff, but not necessarily newsworthy to other people. My weekend was like that - I had a lovely walk and did my grocery shopping. Binge-watched TV and so forth. And Sunday was my PJ day. I only got out of my PJs when I had a night time bath and put a new pair on!

    1. Sounds like you've had a great weekend. ;) I really love those kinds of weeks and weekends. I won't have anything to tell if I did, but I wish I could have more of those.
      I hope you have a great week. Happy Reading!

  8. Glad to hear you had a good week! I haven't seen that movie yet, but I do plan to eventually. I hope you have a relaxing weekend, must be nice to be home for a change after working for four weekends. I like the sound of your two new features ideas! I always like reading about different jobs, so reading about your life as a nurse sounds interesting! I hope you'll have a good week!

  9. Loved Fantastic Beasts! I'm excited to see how it's followed up. I'm SOOOO out of the loop with Arrow. I watched the first two seasons and now he has like four sidekicks which is crazy!

    1. Well.. I'm still in season one. I like it, but I honestly don't think I will see many more seasons. And four sidekicks sounds as way to much.
      Thanks for stopping by! ;)
