I have been playing a lot of catching up this week around the house after a hectic last week and being obsessed about all the superhero movies on TV.
The winter is fleeting around this part of the world, Dubai precisely, which means the weather is being weird.
I thought we are ready for spring but then came the rain for a day, then the cold is back and it has been so foggy for the past two days. We even had the hail in some parts.
And last morning we saw the sun again. I have no idea how it is going to be today. Unlike many people, I love the gloomy and dark weather for some reason.
Here are a few pictures from different parts of Dubai, that my friends shared with me during this week.
I am sure they would be okay with me sharing them here, don’t worry.
What I read this week:
I had the ultimate book worm problem this week – I couldn’t choose what to read next and I spent about two-three days struggling. But then the ClassicNChristie run by Fanna and Sim helped me choose, still I feel guilty for wasting those hours. Maybe I should come up with a better system to handle my TBR?
And I stayed late last night to finish Agatha Christie’s The Secret Chimneys. I am still reading the Persuasion by Jane Austen, from last week.
What I watched this week
My last week was filled with a lot of superhero entertainment.
To start with, I finally watched the Captain Marvel and I am kinda feeling meh about it. Maybe it was the high expectations I had or was it just ‘the same wine in a different bottle’ situation?
Did anyone else feel that? Anyway the next on my superhero watch-list is Avengers: Endgame and I am excited already.
During the week I also watched The Punisher Season 2 and The Umbrella Academy. Unsurprisingly I loved them both. Didn’t I say I love Superhero stuff?
I know that is a lot of Netflix to watch in a week right?
Well, I did it anyway.
