Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. Another wet and cooler week has passed, and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, I finished the Italian classic, The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari, a swashbuckling adventure with battles, storms, sword fights, and daring pursuits and escapes! Sadly, I haven’t made much progress reading The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley, because I have been too tired of an evening, but really looking forward to getting back to it soon for those promises of a glimpse back to the time of Russia’s first Empress Catherine.
In my Hoy Bible reading, over a couple of nights, I read Lamentations in the Old Testament, a short collection of poetic laments of the destruction of Jerusalem: beautiful but sad. Now I am reading 1 Corinthians in the New Testament, one of the apostle Paul’s letters to the church he founded in Corinth, Greece.
While on the screen, I worked my way back through season 12 of one of my favourites TV shows: the British archaeological series Time Team. I have also continued watching the new-ish Jim Henderson series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, on Netflix. This is a little slow going, but only because each episode feels like a short film, so I am only watching one at a time.
Again there was no new film this Friday… Come on Sky what is wrong with your premieres recently?! However we enjoyed re-watching the supernatural romance, Ghost (1990), with our Indian takeaway (Tandoori fish Masala) and a beer. As well as working my way back through the dystopian, young-adult Divergent series: Divergent (2014), Insurgent (2015) and Allegiant (2016).
This week, saw me returning to work, first for two training days and then for two days with our new class in, although the whole school wasn’t as we are having a phased return. As pictured, it looks like my cat has been missing me while I am at work, bless her, she hardly ever gets on my lap. 😻
Trying to get back into the work routine, left me too tired to do a lot else this week, except a little reading, journaling and comfort watching. I also managed to do a little yoga each morning and went for a jog yesterday morning, before doing some more jobs in my bedroom and making a batch of Courgette, Mint & Lemon Soup to freeze in portions.
While here on the blog, it has regrettably been quiet and I have not been able to pop over to your blogs. Sorry! However I did manage to post my monthly round-up: What I Read In August 2020. and take part in the weekly meme, WWW Wednesday | 2nd September 2020. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊
Later today, I will be heading over to my grandad’s for Sunday lunch. For now though, 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? Have you managed any nice days out?
