Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A pretty wet week 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 good reading week for me! First, I finished an updated version of the Christian classic, More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell, for my church’s book club’s recent Zoom meeting. I have also made good progress into my backburner read of The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field, a fascinating history of the life of this controversial favourite of Queen Anne.
Then I recently, I started reading the award-winning, historical-fiction, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, about the dramatic rise of Henry VIII’s right-hand man, Thomas Cromwell; my first choice for my 10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge. While in my Holy Bible reading, I have continued working my way through 2 Kings in the Old Testament, as well as dipping in and out of Joshua, Luke and the Psalms, as part of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams.
While on the screen, I finished the current series of the quirky, spy thriller, Killing Eve, on the BBC iPlayer; I also continued working my way through the back-catalogue of Jamie Oliver’s Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On, on All4; and I started the fifth season of the supernatural drama, True Blood, on Now TV.
Unusually, no new films to share with you this week, however over the last couple of weeks, I have been working my way back through the Twilight Saga films, now they’re all available on Now TV. So far I have re-watched Twilight (2008), New Moon (2009) and Eclipse (2010). They have be fun, easy watches for my tired mind.
As for work, I was physically in work for one day and the other four I worked from home, which looks set to become a bit of a routine now I have seen the rota for the coming weeks. When working at home, I have been emailing my class; cracking on with the leavers books I am making and I finished my online training course. With the wet weather, I have spent more of my free time inside: reading, watching TV, jogging (a little), cooking, prayer journaling and a little baking, too!
While here on the blog, I have taken part in the weekly memes, WWW Wednesday; shared my sign-up post for Cathy’s 10 Books of Summer Reading 2020; my monthly round-up post: What I Read In May 2020 and my review for the children’s classic, The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum.
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?
