A look back
This past month, I’ve been joining hosts Girlxoxo, Traveling with T, and Estella’s Revenge for their 4th annual #AMonthofFaves blog event – “a fun way to recap the year that was.” So far, these are my posts from the event:
- My Top 10 Favorite Things of 2017
- This is How I Read
- This is How I Blog
- The Blogs I Love
- Our Favorite Book to TV Adaptations
- My #lifehacks
- I love…December
A look forward
There are four more prompts, but I’m only doing one more, the last one, for top 10 books, which for me might be top five books. Except I’ll be doing it Dec. 31 instead of Dec. 29 to coincide with my last Sunday Salon post of the year. On Friday, Dec. 29, I’ll give you my Top 10 Albums of 2017 and on Saturday, Dec. 30, I’ll let you know what our Top 10 TV Shows/Movies were for the year.
Starting tomorrow, I have a four-day weekend and then next weekend, I have a three-day weekend. This weekend, the plan mostly is to read (still The Fellowship of the Ring), but as I’m in the midst of watching Narcos (my wife finally got me to watch it and I love it), that might not happen.
Since Sunday is her only day off in a stretch of 13 days (with one day only four days), we are going to make the most of it by going to a Christmas Eve brunch at a local hotel and then to see the latest Star Wars movie. We did get together with my side of the family last weekend for Christmas, with one of the highlights, besides of course, getting together with family, being that I received a new laptop from which I’m typing this post now. Kim also got a new Kindle Fire and she gave me her old one, so now when I come home from work each night, I have to decide which device to use: my phone, my laptop or my Kindle. It’s a rough life.
Aside: The Kindle Fire almost has me convinced to try reading graphic novels again, because of how easy it is to navigate from panel to panel. I am considering Comixology, but I’m not sure because I don’t really have the money for all the graphic novels I can’t read. I’ll probably get hooked on a series and then realize I have to pay for the rest. However, I am considering it; if not, I’ll look for other free graphic novels or ones on sale through other resources. Update: Since that last draft, I have signed up for a 30-day free trial.
So…if you celebrate Christmas, any special plans this coming weekend/week?
