It has been an relaxing day, I haven’t done anything special. I have finished up and posted a review of The Final Girls by Riley Sager. Earlier in the day I went for a short walk, I can’t walk too far before getting exhausted, but it is slowly getting better. It is still a bit cold outside here in Norway, especially the wind. In the evening I played Dishonored, it has been a couple of week since I played it last. It is so much fun!
I have continued reading The Book Of Strange New Things. I really like the book so far, I find it interesting and fascinating, but also a bit strange. I also tried to continue reading The Snow Child, but I find the book really boring. Because I finished One of Us Is Lying yesterday (I really loved it). I started a new Kindle book, and I choose to read Shatter Me. Shatter Me was very popular a couple of years ago, so it will be fun to see if I like it. Before going to sleep I listened to and finished The Carnivorous Carnival. I did a lot of reading today.
Since I finished The Carnivorous Carnival yesterday, I needed a new audiobook to listen to. I’m a bit tired of A Series of Unfortunate Events, since I have been listening to the series non stop the last months. I choose to start the first book in the The Magicians. I have high hopes for this series. I didn’t read in a physical book today, because I wanted to spend time with my boyfriend. We were watching Parks And Recreation before bed. I haven’t watched the show before, but I have seen funny pictures and memes from the show going around the internet.
I was very tired earlier today, but it got better throughout the day. I cleaned my closet, and more specific all the shoes and shoe boxes that was stuck at the bottom. There was a lot of shoes that I had forgotten that I owned, and a lot of dust. It badly needed some dusting and cleaning. I found some shoes that I want to use with high heels. I’m terrible at walking in high heels, so I definitely need to practice my walk before using them, haha. My mother and I went for a short walk today too, for only 15 minutes, but that is a huge improvement. I hope that I will be able to walk to my favorite place this summer, that I used to hike to all the time before I got sick. I have also posted a Top 5 Wednesday post today since it is Wednesday. It was fun to write and not the hardest question. Sometimes the T5W questions are a bit hard to answer. In the evening I have been playing Dishonored. It is so much fun, and I think I’m halfway through the game now. Before bed I read some chapters in A Book of Strange New Things. I’m starting to love this book. It is indeed strange, but so very interesting.
Today, like most of the days, I checked on the seeds I planted a while back. One of them has grown, and it is my first plant ever, yay! I’m 100% new to growing plants (in this case herbs), so it is going to be some trials and errors and a lot to learn. I planted the one that has grown in some soil and in a bigger pot. I also planted some new seeds, it will be fun to see if I succeed. I’m growing: parsley, basil and watercress.
I didn’t read a lot today, just a few pages in Shatter Me, and The Magician.
I forgot to mention yesterday that we are dog sitting a Labrador. Her name is Camino, and she is the cutest and nicest dog. Today I had a doctors appointment, nothing bad just had to get a note from him (or what it is called in English? Medical certificate?). After the appointment I have just been home writing a blog post that took me hours to do (like always, blogging takes a lot of time). After that I went for a short walk with Camino. Oh how much I have missed to have a dog. Our dog Amy passed away in February last year. I didn’t read much today either, hope I’m not getting into a reading slump.
Today I was out on a restaurant celebrating my BF’s brothers birthday. It was really fun because I don’t get out of the house that often. I was wearing a printed red dress, my hair was out and wearing red lipstick. I love wearing red lipstick, it makes me feel cuter. I want to buy and wear some more makeup like foundation, highlighter, eyeshadow and mascara.
I haven’t been feeling so good today, a mix of my illness and stomachache. It’s the end of the day now, and I’m trying to finish this post in time. Thank you for reading, and I hope you like it.
