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.
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists…Hi all, I hope this post finds you well. It’s finally gotten pretty cold out, we’ve had the temps in the 40’s and we had a dusting of snow. I’m working fully remote through next month so I’m happy not to have to go out in the cold early mornings. I cannot believe November is flying by so fast and Thanksgiving is this week. I took the day after off so I’m looking forward to a long cozy upcoming weekend. The past several years we stay home and I cook the meal and my daughter helps me. I bought all my Thanksgiving ingredients with my last grocery trip. My job is nice enough to gift each employee a turkey so I picked mine up this week and I have it defrosting in the fridge as of this morning. Every year I bake candied yams with marshmallows on top but this year I’m going to use this recipe which calls for pecans. Are you ready yet? How do you spend Thanksgiving? Do you have a favorite recipe?
onto my updates….
recently on the blog:
I shared my thoughts on In Her Highlander’s Bed by Lynsay Sands.
I’m reading The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth and it’s so good!
in my mailbox:
Say Goodbye for Now by Catherine Ryan Hyde. I have yet to read a book by Catherine Ryan Hyde that I didn’t enjoy. Her books are just special that way.
I watched Barbarian. I can’t remember which book blogger recommended it but thank you because it was pretty good. Alot of jump scares and I like the casting. The ending was very unexpected.
Also I’ve watched a few new to me Christmas movies in November. I think I’ll be highlighting Christmas movies with my updates posts throughout the season because why not. 🙂 Have you watched any of these? I’m a sucker for holiday films this time of year. I re-watch my favs every year.
* The Christmas Train – This was very good, great cast too. A train setting and a little bit of a mystery with a second chance love.
* A Christmas Movie Christmas – Another cute one, two sisters wind up in a Christmas movie and this one had some cute funny moments. I would re-watch it one day.
* Christmas on the Bayou– This one was worth the watch and I liked the setting, but it’s not one I’d re-watch. I think they could have added a stronger male lead in this, the guy was kind of dorky.
* The Christmas Lodge– This one was a re-watch and it’s kind of corny but a cute one about a woman who goes back to visit a lodge she spent time at with her family as a child and helps to restore it.
*Christmas at the Ranch– This was a let-down which is too bad since the premise sounded good and this was my first time seeing a F/F Christmas romance movie. The central characters actions and the dialogue were just ridiculous, and the plot became odd and awkward unfortunately.
That wraps up my updates for now. I hope you have a nice week and a Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s Otis on a walk last week, enjoying the fresh air. He’s wearing one of the sweaters I’ve crocheted for him, I’ve been meaning to make him a new one for this year.
