Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A glorious week of sunshine has passed and now its time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, has been a great reading week for me! First, I finished the classic, The Professor by Charlotte Brontë; then I finished my re-read of the Gothic modern-classic, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier; and finally I started AND finished Calysta and the Beast by Joanna Alonzo, the first book in Alonzo’s Sacred Scarred series, which is a Christian retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Phew! 😅
Now I am reading an updated version of the Christian classic, More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell, that addresses commonly raised questions and the evidence about Jesus; which is the upcoming read for my church’s book club’s next Zoom meeting. Then in my Holy Bible reading, I have continued working my way through 2 Kings in the Old Testament.
While on the screen, I have caught back up with the current series of the quirky, spy thriller, Killing Eve, on the BBC iPlayer, and I have continued working my way through the back-catalogue of Jamie Oliver’s Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On: a helpful cooking show of flexible recipes to help you cook great, tasty, healthy food in lockdown, which is on All4.
Then Friday night, with a fruity bottle of wine and a Chinese takeaway (I had chicken Chop Suey), we braved watching Sky’s ‘Friday Fright’ film recommendation: the jumpy, creature-feature, Crawl (2019), which had me hiding behind my cushion more than once! 😏
As for work, it has been the school’s half-term break, so no work! Instead, with all my free time, I have read a lot of books, whilst sunbathing in the garden, with my cat! As well as watching some TV; doing relaxing yoga; jogging; cooking; and meeting up with a friend for a social distanced picnic and a well deserved ice cream in even more glorious sunshine! 😎
While here on the blog, I have taken part in the weekly memes: Top Ten Tuesday and WWW Wednesday.; and I shared my review of the Gothic, modern-classic, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and a post on the new books I have received this month.
Now that’s all folks! I look forward to catching up with you all next Sunday. Where ever you are in the world, I hope you and your loved ones are well: staying healthy and happy. God bless and bye for now! 🙏
Now over to you: I’d love to hear what you have been reading? Have you watched anything good? And how have you been spending your time in isolation?
