Anyone else got the funk? I have bronchitis. On the upside I binge-watched The Virgin River (based on the series by Robyn Carr) on Netflix. Loved it! Even the changes were well done. I also devoured the third season of Mrs. Maisel on Prime. Hopefully by the time you read this our holiday shopping will be done. Stay Caffeinated!

    I’m so sorry about the bronchitis! I hope you soon recover – in the meantime look after yourself and get plenty of rest. It won’t leave in a hurry, otherwise… Take care, Kimberly.

    You had fun shopping and good deals!! (I had fun shopping too although the deals weren’t quite as good..)
    I hope you get to feel better quickly. And enjoy lots of reading!

  3. ShootingStarsMag

    Ugh, I hate being sick. I hope you feel better soon!! I’m ALMOST done with Christmas shopping. Most of what I still need to get probably won’t go to people until after Christmas, so I have a bit of time.

    We have had an outbreak of Whooping Cough here. Several kids in my school got it and its a citywide outbreak. NOT FUN. Thankfully, I just got the booster vaccine this summer before my surgery.
    Hopefully your funk passes quickly!

    Oh no! Sorry to hear you have bronchitis! That sucks. Speedy healing!

    I’m so excited to see the American Demon promo next week! I adored The Hollows and Rachel and Trent are perfect… I’m a little terrified that Harrison returning to the Hollows will break them but I’m clinging to the belief that no matter what happens that epilogue from The Witch With No Name holds true! They better keep their HEA!

    I’m sorry to hear about your bronchitis. I hope you’re feeling better. I forgot all about the Virgin River series on Netflix. I read the first book in the series years ago and loved it. I always enjoy that author. I will have to check out the series. I just finished Mrs. Maisel. That is such a good show. Have a great week!

  8. Sophia Rose

    Bummer about the crud showing up, but yay for Virgin River. I have that on my list to watch though I’ve only read a couple from the series.
    I got bit by the shopping for me bug, too.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

  9. Anne - Books of My Heart

    I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well and hope that clears up quickly. I have done no Christmas shopping or decorating really. We get what we want/need when we find it. BUT I have unpacked or stored my daughter’s boxes and now she can work through them 1-2 at a time when she wants. Have a lovely week and enjoy those new reads!

  10. Lola

    Sorry to hear about your funk and bronchitis. I hope you feel better soon. That’s nice you got to binge watch two good series though. My holiday shopping has been done and I just finished wrapping everything. Have a great week!

  11. A Voracious Reader

    Oh noessss! I’m going to rev up my {{{posivibe}}} machine and wing some your way. Get thee away, Funk! Kimberly says to go pound salt. There. I hope that helps. If not, it’s going to be in the upper 50s to low 60s here. Not too cold to do a naked moonlight dance. lol

  12. Amy

    I keep meaning to watch Mrs Maisel but I’ve just never got around to it! Maybe I’ll finally watch it during the winter break.

    I hope you have a speedy recovery from bronchitis! Happy reading.

    Hope you feel better soon! I was sick whole of last week but I’ve recovered right in time for finals, phew!

  14. Wendy @ Falconer's Library

    I hadn’t hear of Virgin River; now I will have to check it out. There’s been so much norovirus in my school district this month that one school closed for three days, and those of us who are healthy are having to cover classes during our plan periods because there are no more subs left. Hope you recover soon!

  15. Tressa @ Wishful Endings

    So sorry about the bronchitis! All four of my kids took turns being sick over the last two weeks and I’m hoping I won’t catch it. I need to check out both of those shows. I purchased my last gift today, so I’m done. Now I have a few birthday gifts to get and the house to clean. I hope you get better this week, Kimberly!

  16. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    Sorry to hear you are sick again! I hope it clears up quickly. I am looking forward to Virgin River (once I finish this work project), but am a little apprehensive about the changes. I love those books so much. It’s good to know that you enjoyed the Netflix adaptation. As for holiday shopping, I’m only about 1/2 way done. (gulps nervously)

  17. Greg

    Oh no- sorry tohear about the bronchitis. I had that a couple months ago- no fun. Hope you feel better soon. I saw Virgin River pop up on my Netflix recs and it looked pretty good.

  18. Lillian @ Mom with a Reading Problem

    I just finished binging Virgin River tonight! It was so good. I bought the book after I realized it was a book first and plan to read it soon. I’m glad it’s already been renewed for a second season 🙂
    I’m sorry you’re sick! My son was down with the crud over Thanksgiving and I’ve had it this last week. Thankfully it seems to have run its course. My voice is just gone.
    Hope you have a great week!
