Sunday Post (171)

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ 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.

Another week of ups and downs, another week of coping with the stress poorly. I spent much of this week with a migraine induced by lack of caffeine and the need of new glasses. Plus the added stress of other people, and I basically spent my time absorbed in three things: sleep, video games and audiobooks. I didn’t get to do much this week either, so it was just sort of a blur of work and the above mentioned things

I did decided on a theme for my Halloween tent at the small festival our city has each year. Harry Potter! (thus surprising no one). I bought a few things to get started and I’m making wands with chopsticks and hot glue. I’ll share pictures here once I get them sprayed with a top coat of some kind.

    Hope this week is better. I can get grouchy if I don’t have caffeine- it’s amazing how much we need it sometimes LOL.

    The Weapon of a Jedi looks good, I haven’t seen that one although I did read a Star Wars book this week. I imagine some will be better than others but it’s good to know this one is good.

  2. A coloring book to review will be a change. Very serene, coloring!

  3. Yay for Harry Potter which is no surprise. Are you excited for the release of the illustrated Harry Potter book? Not long to wait. Have a great week 🙂

  4. I loved the The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker . I saw your wands..freakin’ adorable! I hope this week is better for you health wise.

  5. Migraines, urgh. I had one the week before last and it took me days to feel like myself again. That festival sounds like a lot of fun! You’ll have to take lots of photos for us to see! Lots of people seem to have Outside The Lines Too and it looks fab! Have a good week Michelle, hopefully stress free, annoying people free and migraine free!

    So sorry to hear you’re still struggling with stress. I hope things improve for you soon. Is there anything you can ease up on? If you’re like me you may be stressing yourself unnecessarily. I tend to put extra pressure on myself when it’s not needed!

    PS. The Halloween idea sounds great!

    • Sadly, at the moment there really isn’t anything I can do about it. I need a vacation to be honest, but I can’t afford to take one…not even just to stay home for a few days since I have to make sure the store has enough money to function next month. Plus dealing with people that come with their own brand of stress isn’t helping.

      I’ll be okay though. 🙂

    Looks like you’ve got some good new books. I’ve just started enjoying audiobooks, although I’m checking them out from the library and listening to them on my iphone.

    I’m sorry you’ve had a stressful week 😦 Hope this week is going better. I have to admit I’ve had some sleepless nights myself lately- maybe it’s the change in the season or something.
    The Harry Potter Halloween theme sounds really fun! Happy reading and listening- yay for audiobooks!

  9. I have seen tutorials for the glue gun HP wands, but haven’t tried it out yet. I will be looking for your results! I do not know how I missed your freebie TTT last week with the audiobooks, but I have been there now and left your a comment. I got The Golem and the Jinni last time it was free as an ebook, but I haven’t had the time to read it yet. I hope you are having a better week than last week. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
