Sunday Post (8) - Still Sick

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This week is all in the title of this post. I've been battling a cough that makes my chest muscles hurt (but it's not actually a chest cough, it is just a really annoying normal cough) and I've been battling fever and exhaustion every day.
I managed to keep up with writing my thousand words a day and I even managed to keep my movement streak going, though my 20 minute jogs were pitiful!
On my blog this week: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, a Pulitzer Price winning novel that sadly underwhelmed me. And a Top Ten Tuesday with five novels I loved more and five novels I loved less than I thought I would.

In my kitchen this week: I tried my hand at Bibimbap, a Korean dish where you fry leftover rice and top it with vegetables and beef and an egg. Basically an easy and tasty way to get rid of food that is about to go off. I also made a stew with mushrooms, carrots and potatoes.

I wanted to go to the cinema. Moonlight, Fences and Hidden Figures are waiting for me. But sadly I don't think people will appreciate my coughing throughout the performance.

I was in a bit of a reading slump but I managed to finish Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and hope to review it next week on this blog.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

  6. Oh no, so sorry to hear you are still sick. I am amazed you're still able to go jogging with that nasty cough. The stew with veggies sounds deelish. Unfortunately it's so unseasonable warm here that stew isn't even a thought.

  8. I still need to finish Six of Crows. I started it a few months ago and got about half way through before setting it aside. I was enjoying it, though, I just got distracted. Hope you shake your cough soon!
