It’s Tuesday and it’s been a cough cough cough week

Ugh. This past week has been a not so good one – I’ve come down with some sort of cold/cough thing that just has me beat. I finally decided to try some NyQuil last night. I really hate/love NyQuil, the way it knocks me out so easily and yet leaves me feeling so tired and hungover the next day that I wonder, was there really a point to taking it? But take it I will, so that I won’t be up at 4 coughing and coughing!

Anyway, coughs aside, it’s been a do-nothing-much kind of weekend. But there was rain! And hail!



An American Marriage – Tayari Jones
The Immortalists – Chloe Benjamin


A bit of Chicago Med and a lot of the new Queer Eye!



Well I had half of a bagel spread with kaya (coconut jam) for breakfast


Lots and lots of green tea


I think I’ll make a shepherd’s pie for dinner tonight – it’s easy to prep it ahead and bake it when we get home from tennis class this evening.

Last week:

I read:

Apparently when I’m sick the thing that helps is romance novels. I’ve disdained this genre for most of my life but I decided to come in with an open mind and I was wowed by the clever and funny writing. Consider me a fan now of Tessa Dare and Courtney Milan!

Romancing the Duke – Tessa Dare
Duchess War – Courtney Milan
The Heiress Effect – Courtney Milan

I posted:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. I legitimately clapped my hands in delight that you’re now a romance fan. Try Meredith Duran! Try Alyssa Cole! I HAVE THOUSANDS OF ROMANCE RECS FOR YOU.

    Anyway, I hope you feel better, you poor thing. But for while you’re sick, read lots of awesome romance novels. I will give you recommendations literally any time. ❤
