The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Happy Sunday everyone and Happy Fall. With the first day of Fall arriving here yesterday this weekend definitely has that sweater weather vibe to it. A big change from the upper 80’s from last weekend. I took the photo above one October a few years back. There is something to be said about the beautiful colors the Autumn season brings with it.
It has been a nice weekend at home watching movies and crocheting for the most part. I’ve been very lazy since Friday evening and I make zero apologies for it. I am feeling much better and kicked that head cold finally, it lingered for a little while there.
Also, thank you all for always stopping in and reading my posts and leaving thoughtful comments even when I am slow as ever returning visits and comments. I appreciate it.
Onto books….(No mailbox to share this week. I even had to double check, but yea, no book haul. I am slacking.)
The last week of September is Banned Books Week. Will you be reading a banned book this week?
I’m slowly accepting that Fall is here and I signed up for Fraterfest 2018 and I will be reading Rebecca next month. This is a nice time of year for atmospheric and thrilling reads. Are you reading along?
I do have to mention I am in a reading slump right now. I don’t know what it is. I think I’m just mentally tired with work being so busy plus I’ve been watching more tv lately, just to kind of zone out and relax on my free time. I’m hoping to get out of the reading rut soon, especially since cooler weather will have me inside more. I am working on my reviews of Message in a Bottle and Needful Things so those are almost ready but I haven’t picked up anything else since.
I’ve still been watching episodes of scary stuff based on real events like A Haunting and Paranormal Survivor . I’ve also started watching the new season of American Horror Story which is good so far. It’s about the apocalypse this season. Yesterday I watched Mother! A.K.A. one of the most confusing and frustrating films I’ve ever seen. I don’t like it when I am confused and lost pretty much the entire duration of a film. When the film was over I still had to google it and I’m still confused. Has anyone seen it? I thought they were all in purgatory at one point.
I re-watched The Possession recently as well which is a favorite scary film, and I feel like it’s one of those movies that isn’t too well known but is very good. It is based on a true story.
Here is my finished poncho that I mentioned last week. I love it. This is chunky yarn from Loops and Threads in Lapiz Lazuli and is really soft and almost squishy. I need to get more of this yarn, I might want to make a blanket with it and wrap myself up in it it’s that cozy.
I worked up two rectangles in HDC and alternated front loop, back loop for texture. Then I sewed the rectangles together to form the poncho itself.
That covers my updates for now. Enjoy your week and tell me what you are doing, reading and watching. xo
