Random News And Goings-On
I’m SUPER happy to say that we now have a brand new bathroom! Well, mostly. There are still a couple of touch ups that need to be done and then I need to finish putting my stuff back in there. We also bought some new bathroom accessories this weekend (towels, rugs, shower curtain, etc). Below is a thread of before and after pics. I do kind of want to get another new towel shelf for between the tub and toilet (our old one got moved downstairs into our basement toilet room), but we’ll see. I haven’t finished putting all our stuff back in there either so that will be interesting to see how I fit it. (We have a lot of bathroom stuff….). Also, that gray curtain is temporary, we need to install a proper curtain rod and maybe get a curtain to match the blue shades I got our accessories in.
What else have I been up to? Well, I worked on pulling out books I’ve decided to purge from my shelves from my great TBR project that I started with last year when I re-cataloged everything. So I’ve been working on reorganizing my shelves. I’ve even purged some of my read books because I’m in a purging mood. Hopefully this means my shelves look less messy and have more room for books I actually want in my life. 🙂 I took a few of the purged books up to a nearby little free library that was nearly empty and filled it up with SFF books. I may save some more of my purged ones to refill it again instead of donating them to goodwill….
Things continue to be stressful (they started demo on my kitchen but then took a break to finish the bathroom which SHOULD have done been finished and I think they’re behind now on that so…yeah. I’m probably not going to be able to go away the end of this month like I had planned but for now I still have the time off from work…we’ll see what happens.
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
Two new arrivals! One of my friends sent me the new deluxe edition of Dune! Isn’t it pretty??? I love it so much.
I also bought a copy of The Seventh Perfection by Daniel Polansky. Mainly because that cover! But also because I’ve heard great things. I….have pretty much broken my ‘book buying ban’ at this point, OH WELL. Look, it’s 2020, we have to do that which brings us joy at this point, right?
Not as many ebooks as last time (phew!) but I have added several new ones, yet again. 😀
- May Day by Josie Jaffrey – I saw a review Dini wrote of this one and since I’ve loved some other books by this author I decided to pick it up!
- Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi – Mary at Mary and the Words mentioned this one and I think it will be one that I’ll love so I’m looking forward to checking it out
- The Phlebotomist by Chris Panatier – after seeing a couple of very positive reviews of this one around the blogosphere, I decided to pick up a copy of this one to check out
- The Duke Who Didn’t by Courtney Milan – a new Courtney Milan historical romance yay!!!! Already have devoured this one of course 🙂
- The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller – this is actually a library loan, can’t wait to see what this is about because I think it’s going to be my brand of cheese.
My pre-order for Battle Ground by Jim Butcher came in, yay! It might take me a bit to get to this one as I have some other planned reading for audio first, but we’ll see what happens–my mood can change things.
That’s the news for this week, see you next time!
