Lazy Sunday Thoughts: BBAW Hangover



Book Blogger Appreciation Week is done and I already miss it. I spent a lot of time online this week, even though I was in the middle of Infomagical. What the heck is that? It's a 5 day project to curb information overload hosted by the podcast Note to Self. I took it on as part of my pledge to become more efficient. It wasn't exactly the best time to start. I'll probably talk more about that in another post.

BBAW was fun and it made me want to connect more with other bloggers. I'm going to try to make that a part of my 2016 plan.

Other than that, this week has been light on reading. I'm listening to Black Rabbit Hall. So far it's going okay. I started knitting mittens. I really like the pattern. It's not as hard as I thought it would be. I attempted organizing my 2015 photos for a family album. I have so many photos. It's nice to see just how much we did last year (a lot), but narrowing down photos for an album is tough.

Here at the house, we decluttered some more and got rid of another carload. Now I want to paint my living room. Not sure what colour. As soon as I complete a project, I think of seven more! I'm good at making work for myself.

The snow is disappearing! I don't mind the rain since it's melting the snow. Maybe spring is coming?

I'm taking part in Julianne from Outlandish Lit's Month Long Weirdathon. I'm going to take part in a battle with some mystery person defending what I think is the weirdest book. I'm not going to tell you what book, just that I have reviewed it and I talk about it quite a bit. Maybe I'll finally get around to reading Clockwork Orange.


That was my week! How was your week?

  1. Ah, thanks for the link to Infomagical. I think I saw Andi mention it too. I definitely want to check it out, but then it seems like another overload of information. ;) My week, like yours, was spent participating in BBAW, and it reminded me of why I continue to blog: not only for myself but also for, and with, others.

  2. LOL at attempting BBAW and curbing information overload at the same time. I will be interested to know how it Infomagical goes in the longer run, though.

  3. The problem with doing one project is it makes you need to do other projects. We just had our deck replaced and now our old furniture looks shabby and needs to be replaced.

  4. This weather is just weird... We hardly have any snow left! Last year around this time I have a picture of the snow piled as high as the garage roof. lol But, it has saved on heating costs so yay!

  6. I also feel weird without BBAW this week. But I am keeping my resolution to comment on other blogger's posts. :-)

  7. So, can you just sum up this Infomagical podcast since I don't listen to podcasts? It sounds interesting, but I still don't want to listen to it. ;)

    I don't think you can get any weirder than A Clockwork Orange. I tried the audiobook a few years ago and could not make heads or tails out of it. I have always wanted to go back and try the written version.

  8. I'm going to participate in the Weirdathon too! I'm kind of excited about it. BBAW was something I found out about after it started so I totally missed it. Kind of bummed about that but oh well.

  10. I'm so freaking excited about the #Weirdathon! I have a big honkin' pile of possibilities (my own damn books, of course). I had a bit of a hangover from BBAW myself, so it was good to do something a little different this week and build up a stable of posts for the next couple of weeks. I'm obsessed with organizing, streamlining, and house decluttering lately, so I'm right there with you.
