Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How the heck’s your weekend been? Mine’s been… uneventful. I had plans to get a lot of things done, but my stomach started feeling a little wonky on Friday night and I ended up just hanging around at home for the better part of yesterday. I don’t think I actually came down with anything, but I didn’t really feel up for anything either… ya know? Here’s to today being a better one!
On the plus side, I finally got to indulge in a bit of reading beyond the usual handful of pages that I manage to sneak in before I pass out for the night, so that was nice. And I got to spend most of the night vegging out on the couch with some classic movies, which was super relaxing. Funny how our bodies have a way of forcing us to slow down sometimes…
And speaking of time! I hope you find some to check out these awesome reads I came across this past week. And I’ll see your friendly faces soon!
