Sunday Musings #29: One about being sick and a sleepy week

Hello people, 

The flu has finally shown signs of disappearing but has got me weak and tired. I even had to skip blogging for a while. But now that I am better, I just dropped in here to give a quick update on my week. 

Well, this week was spent mostly on bed, sleeping and trying to read between watering eyes and my runny nose. I was on Tamilfu which accounted for the sleepiness I guess. Anyway, I am better now and off my medicines. 

What I read this week

I finally finished my target of 35 books for the year and may even surpass it as there are two more weeks for the year end. 

And I also want to update that I completed the year’s A-Z Challenge successfully with One Part Woman by Perumal Murugan for the final O. Yay to me.

You can take a quick look on the books I read for this challenge and I will keep updating the links to my reviews as I write them.

On my blog

As for the Tidyathon, I created a new header and a color scheme for the blog. Let me know how you like them compared to my somber and professional colors earlier.

I hope I get to complete everything on my list before the new year. 

Here is a quick look on what I have been posting on my blog, this week.

Around the blogosphere

I have finally gotten back to blog hopping, but haven’t had the chance to visit everyone yet. I will be there soon. 

Here are a few of the blogs I loved this week.

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.

  1. Oh no!! I am so thankful we went for our flu shot at the end of october … probly the most peskiest of all little « bastard » sickness 😒 (we need it, as mom has zero immunitary system following her kidney transplant — so if she’d actually get it, she could die..)

    Onto another topic, yaaay congrats for the reading challenges !! 👏🏼👏🏼
    I’ve long ago step out of the #beatthebacklist challenge.. BUT I did surpass my goal of twelve books on my goodreads challenge; sitting at 20 reads and only missing 10-ish% in my current read to add another to the count! 😄

    • I missed the shots too and I am paying the price. I understand about the kidney transplant and the immune system as one of our relatives is going through the same.

  2. Congrats on your challenges, and on the new look too! It looks nice. Glad you’re feeling better as well. Hope your weekend is awesome. 🙂

  3. Sorry to hear you have that flu, because the flu sucks. I had it once, and thought I was not going to survive. I am very jealous you finished AtoZ, good job! I have read over 400 books and still have Q, X, and Z to complete. I started the X-Files book by Kami Garcia, but couldn’t get into it.

  4. Your new look is pretty and inviting. Congrats on your challenges. I did pretty good with mine too. And it’s so good to hear you are feeling better. I always think the medicine making you sleepy is a good thing. Rest is required to get well:)

  5. I hope you get to rest more this week but are better able to enjoy your reading. Sometimes, you just have to let yourself rest. Congrats on challenge! I choose easy ones I know I will manage. Although I did the Blog Ahead Challenge in October and that was challenging. I learned some things which will help me have better habits to keep up, also COYER helped me develop some organizing skills which have made blogging easier.

    I like the new colors. Have a good week! Anne – Books of My Heart

  7. Sorry to hear you got the flu! Hope you are 100% soon! Congratulations on reaching your reading goal. I’m getting close to mine. 🙂

    I do love your new colors. I wish I was more handy with changing things up on our blog. I’d like to update our look soon.

    • I have contemplated for a year about changing my blog’s look and I finally did it. I wish I had done it a lot sooner.

  8. I like the new colors and graphics.

    Congrats on meeting your reading goals. I didn’t set too many this year. I feel like it bogs me down.

    Hope you have a great week.

  9. Love the new blog design 🙂 It looks great! And congratulations on the A to Z.
    I’m still trying to finish my author A to Z and it’s actually looking better than when I posted about my 2018 reading challenges. I might well get it done still 🙂

  10. I am glad that you are on the mend and hope that you are feeling 100% again very soon. I love the new banner and the colour scheme. It looks very crisp and appealing.

  11. Love the new design, especially the colors! Congrats on completing your challenge. A goal reached is worth celebrating.
    Sorry to hear about the flu. Glad you are feeling better. I went down last week and understand the sleep thing. Happy New Year’s! 🎉
