The Sunday Post #52: Last Free Days



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 our last week of our vacation.. And it wasn’t a whole week unfortunately. We definitely tried to enjoy our last days in our little ‘honeymoon’ cocoon. On Monday we had a nice and quiet day. We went for a 5k walk through the woods, which was a lot of fun. It was a beautiful area and a one hour drive, which made it feel like we were really getting away for a view hours.

On Tuesday we went to Roermond, to this Outlet Center near the border to Germany. It was a long drive, with a lot of traffic jams, but we got up early and just made the best of it. I bought some new shoes, which I really needed since I left my last sneakers in Lanzarote because they were so dirty. (And they were white.. not a good combination.) We bought my husband some new jeans. And we got a new pan, and a new water bottle I can take to work. After our shopping adventure we went to my husband’s uncle, who lives only 30 minutes away from Roermond. We had dinner there, and it was just a really fun day.

On Wednesday we bought my new phone since I needed a new phone plan for the next two years. I got an iPhone 7plus, which is really big but I love it!! It’s perfect for some blogging stuff and it’s just so pretty. It’s red and I can’t stop looking! LOL!! I’m a total geek when it comes to phones.

Well.. and on Thursday I had to get back to work. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday I was an instructor candidate for the MRMI (Medical Response to Major Incidents) course. Last year I went to Milan for that course, so I definitely wanted to be a part of it now. And it was a nice, fun way to get back in my working mode. It were three long days, which were a lot of fun but also very tiring. And today I plan on doing nothing.. Sigh..

Books & Blogging

This week I got back to my blogging rhythm. I had to do a lot of catching up email wise and it definitely took some time to getting everything working the way I want it again. But in the end I did catch up! :D And now I’m back and I love it. I got some great new books and I'm just really excited. 

I did a discussion post this week and had a fun guest post for you guys by author Weston Kincade. My weekly meme ‘My Favorite..’ was about my favorite way to spend the weekend and there were some reviews. Definitely not a bad first week back I think.

    1. Thanks Evelina. It sure feels good to being back. :)
      Forests are definitely inspiring. They almost have a magical feeling about them I think.
      Happy reading!

  3. Glad you had such a relaxing and enjoyable honeymoon trip. My daughter and her husband are having their honeymoon in your part of the world: Prague, Amsterdam, etc. They flew into Stockholm, where they were stuck in the airport for over a day. LOL.

    I like the look of Summer's Lease. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  5. Ooo I'd love a new iPhone, I have a 5s but I'd really like a 7, one of the ones with the bigger memories as they do fill up so quickly!! Have a good week!

    1. They really do fill up quickly. And I do so much with my iPhone.. I'm definitely addicted. LOL!
      The 7 really is very pretty, with a great camera and I love how big but still handy it is.
      Have a great week!

  6. It looks like you had a wonderful time! The hike looks amazing! I got my iPhone 7 a couple months ago and really love it. I got the regular one tho because the plus seemed too big for me.

    I hope you have another wonderful week!

    1. We had a great time. We haven't been on many hikes, but this one made us want to do more of these.
      The iPhone 7 plus is definitely big. But I loooooove it! I can easily do some blogging on it! Perfect for me.
      Have a great week!

    1. It definitely was a good week! We are planning to go on these hiking trips more often.
      Have a great week and happy reading! ;)

  9. The photos look awesome!

    I am seriously contemplating getting an iPhone 7 plus. I'm actually finding my phone too small to do the things I need when I am out and about which is hilarious because I though the 6 was MASSIVE when I first got it.

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

    1. Then the iPhone 7 plus is definitely perfect for you. It's big but I think it's perfect for doing blogging stuff etc. on it. And it's still small enough to put in a smaller bag. So I'm happy! :D
      Have a great week!

  10. Sounds like a busy and fun week with the few trips you made this week. I hope you had an awesome honeymoon! That iPhone sounds nice, a larger phone does sound better suited for blogging and such.

    I hope you enjoy your new books A Life of Death has such a pretty cover! I hope this was a good week!
