Suddenly Sunday - Busy Week

I decided I wanted to join in on Suddenly Sunday hosted by Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog as opposed to the Sunday Salon.

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope your weather is better than mine – it’s kinda gloomy outside. I have been running around like crazy this week. First my mom was in the hospital with pneumonia all week – so I had to do a lot of things around the house that she normally does. I moved a good portion of my furniture into my apartment yesterday and went out for a celebratory dinner with my boyfriend and his parents. On top of this, I have been suffering from neck pain for the last two weeks – I found out on Friday it is muscle strain and am now on muscle relaxers and strong Advil (which makes me very tired). And starting tomorrow, I am going to be working overtime Mondays thru Thursdays until the end of September – so that is going to be a whole lot of adjustments for me. I don’t expect it to have too much of an effect on the blog – I just might be posting things later in the day due to coming home from work later, but don’t worry!

In case you missed it earlier this week – I posted a review of the TV episode Earth Days from the American Experience series as well as a joint book review with my boyfriend on Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. My review here covers the historical fiction aspect of Game of Thrones while over at Lions and Men, Nick’s review covers the characters and fantasy aspect of the book. Drop by and check it out!

In other television news – beginning tonight on The History Channel there will be a new series called America: The Story of Us. This is a 12 hour series that will continue all week. I am very excited about this and hope some of you will watch it as well.

This week I am anticipating having reviews of the first season of the BBC series Robin Hood and a review of Girl With The Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier – so keep on the lookout for those. I also might have a giveaway that I will post during this week as well.

As far as my reading this week – I have actually accomplished a lot of it. I started and finished Royal Harlot by Susan Holloway Scott, and I loved it. I found myself unable to put it down. The review will be upcoming, probably not until next week. I am now starting Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo. I am still continuing to read with Nick, Clash of Kings, the sequel to A Game of Thrones. I am a little less than half way thru that one. I have also just started listening to The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier on audio book.

I hope you all have a great week! I hope to have a little bit of a less stressful week.

  1. I love reading Susan Holloway Scott's books!

    Have a great week!

  2. Oh I LOVE Susan Holloway Scott novels, but I haven't read this one yet. Can't wait to read your review!

    I am sooo sorry to hear about your health issues Heather! I hope you get some relief soon.

    Have a good week!

  3. I'm sure moving all that furniture didn't help your next any. I hope your Mother is doing better.
    We watched the first episode of THE STORY OF US tonight. It is so hard for my husband to stay up for programs. He has to get up for work at 4:30 AM. In addition, he pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve in his lower back yesterday and didn't sleep well last night. He wasn't moving very well today either.
    Will be looking for your reviews.
