The Sunday Post #69: Museum Trip



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its 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 was pretty exciting for me. I had to work a lot, which isn’t always fun but this week I just didn’t mind working at all. On Monday I had this thing after work which was just very exciting. There was a little market, and there was a show with music and everything. A pretty unique thing for an after-work-thing in the nursing business. Fun!!

On Thursday I had a day off and planned on spending it reading and blogging but in the end I ended up watching Grey’s Anatomy! Not a bad thing since I’m really behind on that show, but I just really needed to do so much other stuff.. But I did relax and that’s definitely a good thing. LOL!

On Friday I spent the day with my mom and grandmother in Amsterdam. We went to the museum and saw this beautiful exhibition. “For the first time in its existence, the Hermitage Amsterdam is mounting a show of Dutch masters from the renowned St Petersburg collection.”  It was pretty awesome and we had a great day.

And this weekend it’s back to work again.

Books & Blogging:

Reading wise I was able to get a little reading time in this week. Not as much as I would have liked, but it’s a start. 

I am really excited to have my first sign up for a Release Event hosted by Maureen’sBooks Promotions up and running. It’s a pretty cool event for November 7th including an option to share an excerpt and/or a guest post. And there will be a Giveaway! Don’t forget to sign-up if you’re interested! ;)

  3. Your museum visit looks fab. It's funny that you spent your day off watching a medical show, LOL. I love Grey's too but I'm way behind in the seasons now, I need to binge watch myself someday.

    1. Whahah.. I know.. I'm a little weird. But it is really different than my real-life hospital life. We often laugh about how silly some things are in Grey's. But I still love it! I hope you get to see it again soon. ;)
      Have a great week and happy reading!
