Monday: Spring 2017 Wishlist – Books
Today my mom and I went to the mall because I needed to take some photo booth pictures for a document. So glad I have finally done it. I found a really pretty gold mirror in one of the interior design shops. It would have looked great above the sofa in Emil’s apartment. Too bad it was way over my price range, 2500 NRK – $300. I was almost scared to go out today because of the recent threat of terror. Last week a big truck drove down and killed a lot of people in Sweden and this week they found a bomb in Oslo. After the mall I didn’t do much, other than posting a blog post and read. I read in The Final Empire for the Tome Topple readathon all evening, and manage to read 90 pages. That is a lot for me. I also started Blankets, and read 130 pages in that book too.

Today I haven’t done anything special other than my weekly Tuesday appointment. I started writing this week’s T5W post, and read a bit in my book. Lol, at this rate I’m not going to finish all of the tomes for this readathon. I’m already behind with 200 pages or so.

I have done a lot lately so I needed a day to relax, that is very important when you have ME/CFS. I have planted some of my sprouted herbs into gravel. My plan was to post this week’s T5W today since it is Wednesday, but my cousin and her family came for a surprise visit. I ended up having to postpone it one day. In the evening I took a bath, watched YT and read in The Final Empire.

Today I visited my friend Maria and her sister Linn. We made some waffles, and they tasted delicious. Norwegian waffles are not the same as American or Belgian waffles, they are skinnier and in another shape. It was a fun evening, I always love seeing Linn and Maria. After the girls night I went to Emil’s apartment, because I’m going to stay here the whole Easter. I didn’t read anything today because I was tired and I wanted to spend time with Emil.
Tome Topple Readathon day 7: Didn’t read anything.
Today I haven’t done much, only been inside the apartment. Around noon my mom and my cousin came for a visit. He is staying at my parents house for a couple of days. We served the leftover waffles from yesterday and coffee. In the evening we made some Indian food and watched A Series of Unfortunate Events. Later in the night we watched the whole Zodiac movie. It was really interesting, especially how they chose to have the colors yellow and blue going through the whole movie. What was the meaning behind that? Now I want to research more about the Zodiac killer, haha. I didn’t read anything today either, ah this readathon is going to shit. I was doing ok, but now I’m really falling behind.
Tome Topple Readathon day 8: Didn’t read anything.
We haven’t done anything special today either. We are just relaxing and spending time together this Easter. Earlier today we watched the first episodes in the new season of Attack on Titan. That anime is really good, and we have been waiting for a new season for years. We also finished A Series of Unfortunate events. I really liked the adaptation. I need to finish the book series, but I have gotten kind of bored with it. In the evening Emil played Zelda and I read in The Final Empire.

So far today I haven’t done much. I’m rushing to finish this post because we are going to Emil’s dad for dinner, and we are leaving in 30 min. Hope you had a great Easter
