Sunday Post #3. August 21

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme originally from Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things I have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on my blog.

Life.

On Monday I went to the gym again, haven’t been there in a few weeks… whoops^^ So Tuesday means I’m walking like a penguin again, damn those sore muscles hahahaha… This week is definitely going better at the Olympics for the Netherlands… We’ve got two golden medals on Monday. One for the 10km open water swimming for women and one historic medal. We got gold on the Beam at the women’s gymnastics. We never got a medal on women’s gymnastics ever, and we could never dream of gold in the first place because of the spectacular American Laurie Hernandez and Simone Biles.

On Tuesday we won another historic gold!! Marit Bouwmeester won gold on the Sailing Laser radial race. And that’s our first sailing medal since 1936 – on a boat. We had Dorian van Rijsselberghe already with Windsurfing!!

On Wednesday I felt we had a bit of a bummer… Our Equestrian Jumping Team missed medals this Olympics… Too bad, I love it!! But we still have 3 of the 4 jumpers for the individual finals!!

Blegh!! I can’t shake my migraine.. =[  Luckily, I can still read while having it.. It’s mostly while walking and with bright lights… I have it since like Tuesday and now going on for three days straight…. Few weeks ago too… Biggest downside, it’s finally sunny outside, I want to read and tan in my bikini in my backyard, but the sun is too bright.. So I’m on the couch reading, instead of working on my tan…. Maybe the coming days will be better =] Always keep smiling and think positive!!

On Saturday was my mom’s fiftieth birthday!! Whoop, I’m happy, she’s not hahaha… She doesn’t want to be fifty lol… Gave her a book on sowing techniques and a Minions table lamp and a Minions poster. She loves her minions hahahaha!!! But okay, this poster is cool right? Some people have garden gnomes, like me [family heirloom], but my mom has garden minions xD

By the way, have you guys seen my new NetGalley badge? It’s golden and I like having earned it =] The challenge was to post 20k reviews in a period of time, together of course hahaha… It helped me post my first reviews!! I reviewed A Promise of Fire, Wake the Hollow and Between Two Thorns.. In the next category you’ll find the links ;]

  1. Congrats on your Olympics golds. I’m not into the event myself but it must be very exciting to watch your teams score. I’m sorry to hear about your migraine. They are horrible and hope you feel better soon.

  2. I hope you start feeling better soon. 😦
    Congrats on earning the badge. I saw the challenge but was in the process of moving and settling in and didn’t really have the time or patience to figure out what I needed to do and do it.
    It looks like you have a lot of awesome books to read. I love the cover for A Mortal Song.

  3. Ooh sorry about the migraine! I hope it gets better soon. I’m starting to go to the gym more after having been away for awhile. The first day back was rough on my arms! haha

    I LOVE The Flash. It’s new for me though, as I just started watching this summer and now I have two more episodes until the end of the 2nd season. I need October ASAP!

    1. I’ve been saving eps since I don’t like to wait hahaha. But I’m a good girl and watch them all in order with the crossovers that’s why I go from the Flash to Arrow to Supergirl. I made a list of when which ep aired to know the order hihi😊🤓
