Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. My second and final week of self-isolating has passed (woohoo! 🎉), and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, I have continued to enjoy my journey through the classic adventure, 20,000 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, which has been taking me on a submarine sojourn upon Captain Nemo’s metal leviathan, the Nautilus, in the deep, unknown reaches of our ocean.
Also in my Holy Bible reading, I finished working my way back through the book of Job, about the testing of a good, pious man by Satan. While still a difficult Old Testament book, it was good to read it again with some new perspectives, that I got from reading The Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey.
While on the screen, I finished watching the second season of the British comedy-drama, The Durrells, for more misadventures with the eccentric Durrell family on the sunny Greek island of Corfu in the 1930s. Now I am watching the new American crime-drama, Prodigal Son, which looks into the dark workings of a killer’s mind – Gripping stuff!
On Friday night, with our Chinese takeaway (king prawn Chow Mein for me), we binge watched the second season of the British police drama, Criminal: UK, on Netflix. Also, through the week, I have been working my way back through season sixteen of the British archaeological series Time Team; watching one episode as a bit of comforting break from my laptop, while eating my solitary lunch in the week.
As I said above, this was my second week in isolation, so other than reading, watching television and working online, there is not much to share with you. Thankfully no one else from school has become poorly and the pupil who tested positive is all well now, too; and yesterday, my isolation ended! So I celebrated with a evening out to a cocktail bar and a lovely, local Italian restaurant.🍹🍝 The only person who is upset is my cat, as she has loved having me at home all the time (pictured).
Here on the blog this week, I have taken part in my favourite weekly meme: WWW Wednesday | 21st October 2020; announced the new reading event, Novellas In November and posted my review of the enthralling historical-fiction, Katharina: Deliverance by Margaret Skea. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊
Later today, I will be heading over to my grandad’s for 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? Any nice trips out?
