The one that blindsided me: Sunday Musings #96

Oct 17, 202013 comments

I remember complaining last week about how I never got anything done. And this week has been hectic. While I didn’t get much done on my to do list, I was blindsided (or was I?) with other works.

What's up with you all? How has your week been and what are the plans for the next week? How is your October going on? Let's talk! Click To Tweet

We have a series of Hindu festivities lined up this coming week and the preparation work has just left me exhausted. And it definitely crept into my blog and writing time, sadly. It also means less reading done!

On the other hand, I might have quite a bit to write about next week, so stay tuned.

What I read this week

My reading has been a little slow this week, owing to the messy week I was speaking about. But I am currently reading The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner, for the letter J on my 2020 A to Z reading challenge.

What I watched this week

I have been (re)watching Suits over the weeks slowly. And I am not a great fan of the final season, which was too slow and superficial for my liking.

On my blog

In case you missed the posts from my blog, last week.

A book review of Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson

    Hope your festivities are great! And that it’s a good week. Love your Insta images!! 🙂

    Be well!

    Hope the festivities are fun! Your pictures look so lovely and sunny, it’s been all kinds of miserable weather here all week, and it’s only just getting started

    Sounds like a busy week for you. The Jane Austen Society sounds really good. I want to read that one.

    I watched Suits when it originally aired but I stopped at some point. I think I missed the final two seasons.

    Hope you have a great week!

      I am not happy with the later seasons of Suits, you are not missing out.

    I love the sound of The Jane Austen Society, and I am also drawn to the Woodson book.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Have a great week!

    Sorry to hear you had a hectic week, but hopefully all that preparation will be well worth it for the upcoming festivities! I hope you are enjoying reading The Jane Austen Society, as I have a copy of that I am excited to read. My week has been the opposite to you, as there has been a positive case at my school so we are isolating at home now. Take care and happy reading! 👋📚🙂

      I hope the festivities go smoothly and you can slow down this week! Happy reading!

    Hi there! Sure you are going to enjoy all your festivals and I hope you will have some time for reading.

    Glad you are making progress with your alphabet challenge! I’ve updated mine. There is a link to it on my latest post if you want to have a look!

    Keep well!

      I will definitely take a look at your list and take inspirations from there.

  7. Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms

    I’m looking forward to your writing about your Hindu festivities next week, Gayathri. And I hope you’ll be able to rest, watch the rest of Suits, and get some more reading in between now and then.
    Have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe and healthy.

    • Gayathri

      Thank you. I hope to do the same!
