Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A mild and sunny 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 have not made much progress on any of my current reads: the dual-narrative, historical-fiction, The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley and the classic adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. However, I also started the Christian non-fiction, The Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey, which is the next read for my church’s book club.
While in my Hoy Bible reading, I have finished reading 1 Corinthians, one of the apostle Paul’s collection of letters to the church in Corinth, Greece, in the New Testament and the book of prophet Malachi, in the Old Testament.
While on the screen, I have continued working my way back through season 13 of one of my favourites TV shows: the British archaeological series Time Team and I have also continued watching the new-ish Jim Henderson series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, on Netflix: a beautiful crafted show, that has recreated and expanded on the magical world of Thra.
Then Friday, with our ‘chippy’ takeaway, we watched Sky’s premiere of the extremely disappointing Terminator: Dark Fate (2019). Thankfully, in the last week, I also enjoyed fun re-watches of Transformers (2007) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), as the whole franchise is now available on Sky Movies.
This week at work, we had our class in for two days and for the other three days working online and planning to re-open full time next week. Still being pretty tired I only managed to do little reading, comfort watching and yoga, and join my Zoom book club meeting outside of work. However, yesterday, I had great fun taking part in CluedUpp Games: Witchcraft & Wizardry, where we had to solve a magical, ‘Cluedo’ style mystery around the historic streets of Stratford-Upon-Avon. Pictured is the gorgeous packaging my Hufflepuff scarf came in, that I ordered for the event.
While here on the blog, it has again been regrettably quiet and I have not been able to pop over much to your blogs. My only post this week was Top Ten Tuesday: Purple Book Covers. Please check this out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊
Later today, my grandad will be coming over for lunch, I am making roast pork and apple crumble. 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?
