Sunday Post 93: It’s not Hives…

Published by


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly over on the Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news of what happened in your life, what’s coming up on your blog, or recap posts shared.

Sitting on my porch, enjoying some tea and an audiobook.

Now a few weeks ago, I had what I thought were some hives show up on my left arm and hand. Spurts of these itchy bumps appeared from my elbow to the palm of my hand. It wasn’t until I went to set things up at my desk before our first day officially back in the office, that a coworker who was also there commented she thought the bumps looked more like Shingles than hives. A quick trip to Urgent Care, and the diagnosis of Shingles was confirmed. I’m now no longer contagious, and the Shingles evidence is almost completely cleared. 😀

Reading Update

I am very disappointed, and sad to say, I have decided to DNF The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst. Things have been iffy in this story from the beginning, and now less than 100 pages from the end, I have lost all interest in finishing this story.

I’m turning back to The Burning Sea by A.E. Rayne for my “physical” read. (It’s an ebook, so physical is relative.) I’m over 200 pages in to this and am very excited to get back to this series I actually want to read, rather than try to finish something I’m not interested in just to finish a book.
