More “aggressive unpacking” done: Sunday Musings #126

We are all geared up for this year’s Emirates Literature fest 2022, and as per my annual ritual I have signed up to volunteer. It has been a long while since I met my fellow volunteers and I am excited. This week we had a few Zoom sessions to discuss procedures and other orientation with the Literature festival organizer team.

The festival is happening from 3rd Feb to 13 February 2022. Check this out for more details. It has got some interesting author line up.

In the home front, another week of unpacking and trying to find a place for everything. We also had to order some miscellaneous pieces of furniture for the house. I am not sure how we will go back to an one BHK in a year, after living in this spacious apartment.

My favorite season is here and this year I get to experience it from the top floor. I love watching the early morning fog settle and I guess next week is going to be extra foggy.

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme. Last week has been so hectic that I have not been visiting many blogs, but I will be correcting that this week.

What I read this week

I finished The Hunting party by Lucy Foley this week.

I am currently reading Mackenzi Lee’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. And I am really loving it. I have the entire series with me, ready to be picked up next.

What I watched this week

I just stumbled upon “Back to the Rafters” on Amazon, which brought out a lot of nostalgia. While I have not watched the entire series ”Packed to the Rafters”, I have warm memories of watching the 1-2 seasons long ago in 2008-09 with a couple of friends.

Anyway I went on a binge fest and watched the new series in a single day.

I also enjoyed watching this cute shirt film based on Hotel Transylvania, called Monster Pets.

    Oh, I haven’t been to a lit fest for ages! Hope you enjoyed it, and that you’re all unpacked and settled in by now!

    Unpacking is always difficult. We’ve been here almost three years and haven’t finished. I hope you do better than we did.

    Have a great week!

    Unpacking… never fun but always necessary. I enjoyed The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue but for some reason I never continued on with the series. Hope you enjoy it!

    I hope the literature festival is a success.
    I watched Packed to the Rafters when it was on TV but haven’t watched Back to the Rafters yet.

    Wishing you a great reading week

      The new one is really short with 6 episodes. I just wanted to feel the nostalgia once again!

    The fog sounds fabulous, and how awesome you’ll be able to see it from high up. I think that would be neat. 🙂

    Your place sounds great.

    I’ve been wanting to read Foley. I think her new one is out in February?
