Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
So YAY! The weather finally stopped being hot but now it’s kind of cold….like freezing. Some nights have been below freezing and the next few weeks isn’t going to be above 60. Doesn’t stop me from sleeping with the window open but still. It’s chilly spooky season. I might be extremely happy about it.
The 24 Hour Readathon was on Saturday, I will let you know next week how I did but as of right now I was able to finish one book and started My TBR List book. I was only planning on 12 to 18 hours but I think I will make it a solid 16. I plan to try the 24 in 48 Readathon next year because I think I can do that easier. I am not built to last 24 hours anymore. 🙂 I am also realizing I need to do a good day of reading every so often just for myself. Like a vacation from the real world. Thankfully once again the readathon has reminded me why I love reading and my blog so much.
I am still trying to get ahead with my posts, this weekend was busy so I wasn’t able to get a lot of post (just one) ready for next week so it will be slow week. I am hoping to work on some posts today in the AM and after Pokemon Community Day. Next weekend I am going to try and get all the sign up posts for challenges and a few other end of the year wrap up posts drafted. Some things are waiting for designs. I have a lot of personal design work to finish and one big project that I wanted to start for next year. I am excited about it but I am keeping it to myself for now, I am hoping to get most of it completed before the spring of next year. I also need to finish up our blog design, I am so excited for all the changes.
Work still sucks and is very draining emotionally, I come home at night feeling so wiped out but I am still not sure what I want to do, so for now I am stuck. Thankfully I have the my family, the blog, books, and Limabean Designs to keep me grounded. I am trying to keep positive, do my work and go home. It’s what I look forward to most.
Since I haven’t updated about them in a while. The kittens are doing very good and feeling a lot more comfortable in the house. They sort of took over. 🙂 Auggie is still a little nervous about my son but otherwise is such a good boy. He does cause some mischief but a very funny and sweet little guy. Calliope is so funny, she loves to play when she is not judging your every move. They are both such good babies, even with the halloween decorations, the real test with be Christmas when the house is fully decorated. They are getting so big…we Auggie is, Calliope must have been the runt of the litter because she is much smaller than him. Sometimes when he is cuddled next to the dog they always look like they are the same size. You can follow them on instagram @theparsonspets 🙂

What I grabbed
This month Uppercase and Owlcrate has some really awesome books and stuff this month. I will share the full boxes next week. I’m not a huge fan of Pride and Prejudice so I am not sure about the pride book it does look very interesting and I love a good retelling, however I know someone that loves the story so I might have to pass it on to her if I decided not to read it,
PANIC WITH ME FRIENDS!!!
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
