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.
💜💜💜 Life 💜💜💜
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! 👩🏫 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 Soup and Classic Vegetable Soup for lunches. 🥣
💜💜💜 Reading 💜💜💜
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. 📚
💜💜💜 Watching 💜💜💜
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. 🛕
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. 🥊 Also 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). 🦇
💜💜💜 Blog 💜💜💜
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! 👋
