πŸ™ Sunday Reflection | 26th September 2021πŸ₯£

Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A rather seesaw kind of week has flown by and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been doing, reading and watching over that time.

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Life πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

It has been a lovely autumnal week of cool mornings and bright, sunny afternoons, where I have a good, productive time at school with ‘my boys’ and well… not much else, as the week just seemed to fly by! πŸ‘©β€πŸ« Unfortunately, I also struggled with my anxiety a little the last couple of days, after a frustrating mix up with my doctor’s appointment.

To help I have been enjoying calming and nutritious superfood mixes stirred into my midday yoghurt and into warm oat milk to make a relaxing latte of an evening. As well as making more favourite meals for during the week, including: Easy Cheesy Leek Risotto and Pan-Fried Trout for dinners, and Curried Cauliflower Coconut SoupΒ and Classic Vegetable Soup for lunches. πŸ₯£

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Reading πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Sadly my reading has stayed pretty low for the third week in a row now! However I have continued to dip in and out of the Christian non-fiction Miracles by C.S. Lewis – in which Lewis argues against the rationalists, agnostics and deists, and provides a poetic and joyous affirmation that miracles really do occur in our everyday lives – and the weighty tome The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas . Both of which I am close to finishing. πŸ“š

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ WatchingΒ πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

For most of the week, my viewing was dominated by the gripping drama The Serpent (2021) – based on the true-case of a conman and killer who preyed on young backpackers, travelling through Bangkok, Thailand – now streaming on Netflix, which I finished Thursday evening. πŸ›•

Then on Friday night, with our Indian takeaway, my dad and I chose from Sky Movies’ ‘Must Watch’ collection the Oscar-winning drama The Fighter (2010), starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale as boxing brothers, to watch. πŸ₯Š AlsoΒ yesterday evening, I enjoyed a bit of a Tim Burton and Michael Keaton film-a-thon, as I re-watched the brilliant Beetlejuice (1988) and Batman (1989). πŸ¦‡

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Blog πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Last but not least, here on the blog has been quiet on the comment front (sorry!), however I did have fun taking part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic: Books on My Autumn 2021 TBR Pile and I shared my review of the Christion non-fiction The Case For Christ by Lee Strobel. So please check those out, if you haven’t already. 😊


For now, that’s all folks! Today, I am look forward to going to church and taking my grandad out for a birthday lunch. 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! πŸ‘‹

  1. I’ve not seen Seetlejuice in years! πŸ˜€ I’ve started watching a TV series called The Cleaner starring Greg Davies. It’s worth a watch!

    Easy Cheesy Leek Risotto and Pan-Fried Trout sounds delicious! πŸ™‚

  2. The fall weather is so nice, isn’t it? Sounds like you had mostly a good week. Hope the anxiety has gone back to normal levels. Hope you have a wonderful week upcoming.

  3. We had some autumn weather this week, although this weekend is back to summer like and for a few days this week. I watched My Friend Dahmer about Jeffrey Dahmer this weekend. Interesting movie. Hope that you have a good week!
