Sunday Musings #21: One with ‘the fall is here’ shout out

Oct 21, 201848 comments

G’morning people,

Though we don’t have an autumn season around here I am gonna have to shout out ‘The Fall is here!’. The temperature has fallen and we are so close to hoodie weather. I love this time of Dubai, and Halloween decorations are everywhere. And more horror movies and books. 

On the other news, I got some indoor plants this week and I am testing out how long I take to let it die. I am being totally serious, I think I have some serious ill luck when it comes to plants and I am doing my best. I have been digging up a lots of blogs and this time I am equipped better, I hope. 

What I read this week:

I am reading A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard.

What I watched this week:

Did any of you know Netflix is finally streaming the Jane the virgin Season 4? Yaas! I love it and am currently binging on it.

I love Rafael Solano and obviously if you knew he looks like this, you would too. And that he is kinda good person (I know the judgement is still out on that) helps. 

On the blog

I spent quite some time on my blog and I hope this continues. So here is a quick recap on what happened on my blog this week.

Around the blogosphere

Here are a few of gems among the millions of posts I read this week. I love ’em and I thought you would too. 

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.

    I never could quite get into Jane the Virgin but Netflix has a new show The Haunting of Hill House I’ve been binging that’s super creepy and has a great halloween feel!

    I tried Jane the Virgin but couldn’t get into it. I also don’t have much look with plants either, hence I don’t have any indoors.

      At least we have books in common right?

    Good luck with the plants. I suck with plants, everyone I get dies. I don’t know why.. They die when I give them water, they die when I forget to give the water. We now have fake plants from Ikea. LOL!
    We watched an episode of The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix this week. Not sure we like it though.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

    Enjoy the cooler weather, not long ago you had high humidity and it was terribly hot. I have no luck with houseplants, my husband takes care of the plants we do have. My sister loves houseplants, she can tell you the names and how to care for them. I have to laugh because she watches plant haul videos on You Tube. I’ve only watched two seasons of Jane the Virgin, I would have watched further if she didn’t get back with Michael.

    Enjoy your week ahead.

      Thankfully the temperature is falling. I have been reading about house plants all over the internet now. Sigh.

    Yass! This time of the year is great! I didn’t know that Halloween is celebrated in Dubai too, I would love if you could include some pics in the next post 🤗

      No it is not exactly “celebrated” but there are a lots places that decorate and the shopping aisles are filled with Halloween stuff.

    Temperature has been falling alot here too, we even saw it snowing one day!!
    For the plants, did you know there’s some apps to remind you when you need to water them? 🙂 that could help you not making them die.. ahah

      That is a neat idea. Let me add a reminder on my mobile right away. And I want snow 🙁

    It feels like fall here today. Might need a long sleeve t-shirt in the mornings for a few days. I plan to watch the show now that the next season is available. I’ll probably binge it. LOL I’m watching The Haunting Of Hill House right now, Creepy stuff. And just finished all of Heart Of Dixie.

      I will have to watch Haunting of Hill house soon, so many positive reviews.

    Good luck with your plants! Houseplants can be tricky. They need the correct amount of light and watering. Those little spike fertilizers every once in a while too. I’ve never seen anything about Jane the Virgin. I’ll have to check it out. Happy reading! 🙂

    I recently finished that season of Jane the Virgin and I am missing her so much! I am currently rewatching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix, but I plan to start the new season of Riverdale before Sabrina the Witch comes out!

    I am excited for Halloween decorations too! Happy to hear you are enjoying the time there!

    • Gayathri

      I have read only a few episodes of Riverdale and I liked them. If you are into Spanish series, you should try Money Heist or Cable girls!

    I’ve never watched Jane The Virgin. My netflix binge recently was Riverdale which I really enjoyed… Don’t quite know what I’m going to binge next.

      Riverdale looks super interesting too. I have watched only few episodes and I liked them.
