Sunday Post (23) - Back to Routine

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

If you participate, and you totally should because the community is amazing, don't forget to link up and if you leave me a comment, I will definitely check out your blog.

The Rules can be found here. And this week's post can be found here.

After quite a crappy summer, not because of the weather, but because it was filled with unnecessary stress due to being ill and job hunting, this household is settling into a new routine and hopefully my health will bounce back. I've been reading like crazy... and I need to get back to writing and sports.
Not quite running yet, because I want to give the sprained ankle a chance to recover, but hopefully not long to go now. I probably won't be ready for our event in September... and I miss running. I realised it helps a lot with my anxiety. I actually hate running but when I come home I feel much more relaxed. So, I do it for that.

Last week on my blog:
Last week in my kitchen: I made a gorgeous chicken breast recipe last week that I'd like to share with you. I found the recipe here. Chicken, potatoes, garlic and Parmesan? Count me in, right?
The chicken and potatoes are baked in a cream sauce made with garlic and herbs to which you add spinach and Parmesan. Quite easy to prepare and the oven does the rest!

I'd also like to link to The Blog Squad: Uma K, Di Hewlett and AmyNikita, who write such great and informative posts.

I've tackled some Jim Butcher this weekend and hope to write many reviews this week. Happy reading!


  1. All the best for your health, Olivia. I hope things get easier and you get to run again soon :)

    Thanks for linking to us! That's so kind <3 I'm so glad you enjoy the posts.

    Going to check out your review of I Let You Go...

    Have a lovely week :)

  2. Yes, I walk and often don't feel like it, but I go and honestly I never regret it. It's the going that is I hope the Fall brings good things.

  3. Thank goodness things are settling back into a routine. You've have one heck of a trying summer. The chicken looks positively divine!

    1. I'm so done with summer 2017, hehe! And thank you!

  4. Hope your ankle feels better soon and you can get back to running! I've ben thinking of reading some Clare Mackintosh and Jim Butcher too- haven't tried either yet.

  5. Oh no, hope the ankle mends quick. Yeah, I start getting antsy when I go too long with running. Feel better!

    1. I never would have thought running would have that much of an effect on my wellbeing! Thank you for stopping by :)

  6. Hey Olivia! I hope your ankle gets better and sorry for not visiting more often! College has me working really hard and my blogging has reduced a bit because of that! AND OMG I WANT THAT CHICKEN!!!

    1. College is a lot of work! But it gets easier... actually I'm lying, it doesn't! Always keeping an eye on your blog :)

  7. I'm back on the blogosphere and catching up, once again, after a couple of weeks away. I've been home for a week but it's taking me a long time to get back around to everything!

    I'm glad you've been finding the time to read! That's awesome. I hope everything else comes back to normalcy soon. How have you been feeling?

    Wow - that chicken looks AMAZING!

    I'm gonna head on over to look up the recipe!

    THANK YOU for linking to us - you are so sweet! I'm glad you enjoy the posts :)

    I hope you are doing well and that this week has been a good one for you!!!
