Week that whizzed past: Sunday Musings #84

Jul 19, 202034 comments

This has been one of those weeks. I can’t think of one solid thing that happened and yet seven days have whizzed past. We are still following the post CoVID routines, even though there are no more restrictions over here. Better safe than sorry right?

We are not going out unless it was for exercising or essentials and we are still working from home. Having that choice is a huge privilege and I am so grateful for that.

What I read this week

I finished reading Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi this week. The book set in Ghana and Alabama, USA, talks of the history of slavery and mistreatment of Blacks in the white world since 1700s.

The book was so intense and painful, I had a book hangover for the next two days. I definitely won’t be able to review it this week.

What I watched this week

I finally completed the community and guess what my goal to reduce the number of TV hours has officially been forgotten.

So, I am currently watching the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, (just started) and it looks promising. What else should I be watching?

    I’ve never seen Marvelous Mrs. Maisel even though I’ve had Amazon Prime for years. Should I be watching it?

      YES, if you like funny feminists.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is really good. I need to start season 2.

    Since I’m in the US, with rising case numbers, I expect we will see more COVID-19 restrictions before things open up again. Honestly, I’m just staying home as much as possible, hoping we don’t catch it, and praying there will eventually be a safe and effective vaccine.

    Stay well, and I hope you find a good book to get you over your book hangover!

      Staying home as much as possible is the only way to go! Stay safe.

    It is smart to still be careful even with everything opening up as evidenced by our rising numbers here in the states. Good for you! I am seriously thinking of starting a BookStagram and if I do I will definitely follow you! Your pictures are beautiful. 🙂

    My week whizzed past, too, as you saw when you visited. Thanks for that! It was a good reading week, and I have enjoyed watching shows and movies online.

    I love The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Hope they bring us another season soon!

    Enjoy your week!

    My week has been quiet too. Due to the heatwave we are experiencing here, this has been one of those weeks that I got nothing done. I can’t wait for temperatures to get back to normal so I can be productive.

    Happy readings!

      Oh the heatwaves have been horrible here too.

    I never know what day of the week it is to be honest!

    I haven’t watched Marvellous Maisel but I’ve heard good things about it.

    Have a good week.

      Oh yes that is exactly how it is right now for me.

    Oh I agree. My week has been crazy quiet. I only made it seem busy by starting a workout routine, though I didn’t do it every day. Sometimes I just needed to take a day off. But all in all, I worked out for most of last week, which is really a first for me.

    We’re still having some restrictions in place. It’s expected that we’ll enter the post CoVID era in august, but that is only if the numbers don’t increase again. Which…Unfortunately you never know. Happy reading and have a wonderful week!
