Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up {7/1/20}

Posted July 1st, 2020 by in Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up / 16 comments

The Wednesday Weekly Wrap Up is a way for me to share what’s been happening in my life through the week. It will be mostly book related but may include some stuff going on in my real life. It was inspired by Caffeinated Reviewer’s The Sunday Post.

I’m having a pretty good week so far. Granted it’s been all of two days but I’m taking this as a good sign. Yesterday (Tuesday) was a bit of an odd day for me. There are times during this safe at home time where my day will just meld in time. It doesn’t seem to flow like normal. That probably doesn’t make sense but it’s just how it happens some days.

While the state that I live in is being very lax with their re-opening my husband and I still haven’t been out to eat and probably won’t be for awhile. My office is slowly re-opening. As I was only there 4 days a month pre-COVID, I have only been in the office for 2 days in the last 3 1/2 months. This just means that not much is happening in my life. It is getting old but considering things could be so much worse, I’ll take it.

{Previously on Once Upon a Chapter}

I picked up Fable by Adrienne Young from NetGalley. I just read Sky in the Deep and The Girl the Sea Gave Back. I’m very much looking forward to reading this one!

Kristy and the Worst Kid Ever by Ann M. Martin

My continuation of the BSC series marches on. I think this one is going to be interesting because Kristy’s a pretty patient person. I’m a little nervous though because lately the BSC books have been very down on the members of the BSC.

The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

I figured it was beyond time to get started on my Book of the Month selections. I have three coming for July and two I haven’t even touched yet. I’m really looking forward to this one as I’ve heard good things! This is a new to me author.

I’m hoping to get caught up to my planned read through. Right now I’m a couple months behind. Normally I try to only read one a week but I need to read one every other full size read to get caught up. COVID sort of messed up my timeline when reading became difficult.

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

This is the book that I’m moderating for July’s COYER Book Club. I said I was only going to do one but once again I’m going to try and read all four. It’s just so much fun to talk with these ladies! I thought I should start with the one that I’m responsible for and then I’ll work my way through the rest.

How is your week shaping up? What exciting things are you reading?!

    I work from home but I’ve been struggling with getting back into a routine. I don’t blame you for not going out to eat. There’s been two places in town where the employees have had the virus and spread it.

    I’m just getting ready to pick up the The Boyfriend Project this weekend.

      We just went out to eat for the first time. The restaurant required masks when not at a table, distanced diners from each other, and had quite a bit of outdoor seating (which is where we sat). It was lovely. We probably won’t go again anytime soon but it was nice for one day.

      I hope you enjoyed it! I didn’t end up reading it when I had planned!

    I have settled into a comfortable WFH routine that I am not sure how I will cope up when they make us go out. TBH everything is opened here in Dubai and the numbers are receding but work places have been giving out options to WFH and many are choosing that, sensibly.

    PS your commentLuv option doesn’t seem to working.

    • Stephanie

      If it was something I’d have to make a choice on, I’d definitely choose WFH for as long as possible. Our office started doing 50% but I’ll still be WFH after all is said and done. I’m glad that I was adjusted to it prior to this because it is a bumpy transition!

      That’s really odd. I’ll have to look at it this week. Thanks for letting me know!!

    Every day is like Groundhog Day, I’m so glad restrictions are gradually being lifted here in Scotland and we can travel a little further, I don’t think it’s over yet by a long shot.

    Hope you have a good week.

    • Stephanie

      I agree with you! We’re seeing a resurgence here but I expected that as not many seem to be taking it too seriously.

      Hope this past month has gotten better over there!

  4. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    I haven’t been out to eat since last year, but I have been getting delivery. I think it’ll be a long time before I feel comfortable enough to eat in a restaurant. Have a great week!

    • Stephanie

      We’ve been doing delivery and pick up in the drive thru. We recently went to a relatively safe restaurant (masks required except at table, outdoors, and distanced from others) and ate outdoors. It was the first time in 5 months and we probably won’t go again any time soon.

  5. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    Things could definitely be worse! I’m not going to be eating out anytime soon either although I did have a takeaway last week which felt so weird! (It was nice though.)
    The UK is opening up bit by bit but we’re a long way from normal. I have no idea when normal will resume and it’s kind of exhausting. 🙁

    I hope you have a good week!

    • Stephanie

      It is sort of exhausting isn’t it? I think it’s okay to say that out loud. Things have changed drastically for everyone. I think for now this is our new normal for a little bit. We adapt but that doesn’t mean it’s hard work adapting.

      I hope this past month has been kinder to you!

    • Stephanie

      It is, isn’t it!? We’ll get there. I’m learning that instead of my normally planned out routine that I have to learn to be flexible day to day now. It changes so quickly. It’s not easy but I am certainly getting the practice in!
