Today is Sunday, time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week in and out of the blog. As usual I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer .
In my private life
Well we are still working from home for a few more weeks so it’s pretty calm but two things to mention this week.
First I went to the doctor for a blood test, being fifty and all we have to check some things. As I was at her office with mask and all I asked if we could look after COVID antibodies as she was taking my blood and all.
At the beginning of March, before the lockdown, we all were sick in my family and even if I only felt bad for three days, my husband was ill for nearly three weeks. So, who knows?
We’ll only have the result in a few days. As the antibodies disappear after some time, maybe we won’t learn anything but it is worth a shot.
While visiting her, I confessed having a really hard time isolating for so long as we respect the rules to a T. I also said that I was punishing myself not going to the aquaboxing lessons whereas it was now allowed again.
She told me that I couldn’t control what the others do, that we were in this crisis for more months and that maybe I could try to go to the aquaboxing and see how I felt. If I didn’t feel safe then so be it but my mental health was as important as my physical health and we had to learn to live with the virus, making the smart decisions as far as risks are concerned.
I think she is right but it’s difficult not to fear when you watch the news…
Second, I went to my haidresser today and it was a nightmare!
She works for a salon and also privately in her own house. I’ve known her for more than 30 years and love going at her house as she cuts hair on Sunday and it’s easier for me.
But today, when I arrived with a mask and sanitized my hands, there were two other clients ….without mask on! My haidresser had one of these transparant shields you put on your face so that was fine, but I was stressed looking at the other clients.
I thought about leaving but I really wanted that cut!
So I sat down three meters from the other clients and asked to open the big window.
They asked me if it was too hot and I answered that as they hadn’t masks on, I wanted more fresh air in the room. No one said anything to me but I was ill at ease the whole time they were present.
Now I will pray that none was infected and that I won’t catch anything! Cross your fingers for me would you?
To end this post on a positive note, I’d like to thank all of you who commented my live unboxing on Instagram. Lashaan in particular made very useful comments and I’ll keep them in mind for the next one!
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
No review even if I have finished three books and nearly a fourth one now!
Two are for book club reads so I’ll publish the review next week and one is for a release tomorrow!
That does not mean that I published nothing!
On Tuesday I published two posts:
One for the Top 5 Tuesday with characters I’d love to dress up as and I added a tweak to it ….
And the other for Top 10 Tuesday as it was about books I’d love to see made into TV shows. I chose to select books I have read this year only as I had done similar posts in the past.
On Friday you also got two posts from me!
One was our third collaborative post about Romance with Trisy and Caro!
This week was very creative as we had to imagine a pairing with some of our favorite authors and what kind of story they’d write!
And I also posted some funny post about how hastag can help understand the booknerd tribe! If you are in need of a good laugh, be my guest!
