Random News And Goings-On
This week has been odd. At home things have been really routine and not a lot going on other than starting to prepare things for this bathroom and partial kitchen remodel we’ll be doing later this year. I’ve been (very slowly) working on this embroidery project I started, my first ever, because I like hand sewing but don’t often do it and always wanted to take up a hobby that would allow me to keep my hands busy while I can listen to an audiobook. This is my first ever project and it’s going okay I guess but some of these stitches will take more practice than others. I’ve also decided that I want to jump into a really ambitious embroidery project after I finish up this practice piece because that’s just how I roll–patience is NOT my strong suit lol.
Then, on the other hand, work has been SUPER stressful. Everyone seems so on edge. We switched to a new web platform that we’ve been preparing for right at the start of lockdown back in March and there are so many things to work out, stuff isn’t going right or we keep running into things that are supposed to work one way but don’t actually and sales are down and my boss thinks it’s because of the site and not because of the pandemic so there’s just a lot of push to get things done but because my boss is my boss he can’t focus on one thing so there’s a lot of spinning wheels and jumping from one project to the next and it’s all very frustrating. It’s a lot and it’s also a pretty toxic environment as my boss treats everyone like shit, throwing people under the bus and yelling/getting an attitude. But I’m lucky to have a job right now, right? I’ve been searching for a new job but it’s hard right now with everything. Stupid pandemic! Anywho, I’m sure things will all work out somehow.
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
So….I loved the first book in The Others series by Anne Bishop so much that I ordered the next two in the series. Holding off from diving straight into these as Lynn (who I buddy read book one with) and I would like to try and read book two together as well and we both have other books to read before jumping into the next one. I’m really excited for these though! And I’m glad they won’t remain on my TBR shelf as long as the first one did. 😉
Only a couple of ebooks the past couple of weeks–I’ve been pretty good! My pre-order of Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall came in (and I devoured it) and I just picked up Amber & Dusk by Lyra Selene after Mary @ Mary and the Words talked me into it by saying it was the tropiest book that ever troped. 😉 It was also only $1.99 and I’m a very easy sell, lol.
No new audiobooks this time around but I should have a couple next update as my audible credits will be in. I think I know what I’m spending them on too. Or at least one of them. 🙂
That’s the news for this week, see you next time!
