I do not know how the week flew and yet I am here on another lazy Sunday to talk about the week that flew by. We are going to watch a movie in the cinemas in a bit, so this may have to be a quick one.
Today we are celebrating our (United Arab Emirates – UAE) 47th National day and things are quite fun and happening. We have been having fireworks and flags being displayed in almost every neighborhood. So I thought I will share with you a few of those sparks that I clicked last night.
We also have several dance and folk song performances in many of the malls. I will try and post the video of it if I happened to catch it up. You may catch up more about Dubai here on my Instagram.
I went to watch a stunt show last night but didn’t get any seats. We ended up standing throughout the show and I think that spoiled the fun a bit. Still it was a good one.
On my blog:
I surprised myself this week by being super planned with respect to my blog. I had three scheduled drafts that went as per the plan. It may not be a big deal for most of you, normal and organized people, but this is the first ever time like that has happened in my blog. So that is a great win.
Here is a recap from my blog
Sunday Musings #26: One About My Visit To The Gold Souq
Book review: Quiet Kind of Thunder, A
Blogging solutions: How to hide Pinterest images from your post?
Around the blogosphere:
- Our lovely Evalina posted this handy guide on missing books and ways to solve the problem.
- Don’t have enough bookish websites to obsess about? Karla has some more.
- My issues with planning is self evident and apparently Sophia does too. I couldn’t relate enough to this post on her love/hate relationship with planning.
- I recently got obsessed with Instagram (I know I am late to the party) and Marija’s post on Inside my library mind about ‘Is Bookstagram Really Just Looks Over Substance?‘ got me thinking.
- Do you crave for some social media detox? Charvi from Its not just fiction can’t recommend it enough.
- For all you The Handmaid’s Tale fans the book finally gets a sequel and from Margaret Atwood herself, called Testaments narrated by three women. I can’t wait. Her official FB Page here.
I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.
