TBR Tuesday

Peanut and Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Today was a pretty lazy slow day. I did get some reading done, though it’s never enough to the amount of time I wish for. I did find time to read outside today. Reading outside has been a goal this past week and I’ve been really looking forward to this me-time. It’s been a real refreshing thing that has started to uplift my mood, along with the fact that it’s summertime, one of my favorite seasons. Peanut and I highly recommend finding some time to read outside.

So reading. What shall I read?… Well of course thanks to my habit of reading more than one book at a time, I am currently reading 3 booksContinue reading “TBR Tuesday June 28th”

Silent Sunday Nights

The Red Mill 1927

Since I’ve been following Turner Classic Movie channel Β more lately I have found some themes that I like.Β Last week was Memorial Weekend so they were showing some oldie war films. Gramps and I ended up catching some of the M.A.S.H. movie to rewatch before going to bed. Tonight, Silent Sunday Nights is back with a “Fatty” Arbuckle (aka William Goodrich) film from 1926, The Red Hill. (TCM, Facebook). Looks to be a good calming night.

Here is my Silent Sunday Nights…

It’s TBR Tuesday time. Time to recap and see what I’ll be reading next.

This year I have been in a bit of a reading slump. Rereading a some favorite books has helped some. Last month it was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, this month it was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling. Now I’ve read 75% of The Martian be Andy Weir. It’s been a good read so far and I’m looking forward to watching the movie. Continue reading “TBR Tuesday May 24th”

Silent Sunday Nights

Since I’ve been following Turner Classic Movie channel Β more lately I have found some themes that I liked. Tonight is Silent Sunday Nights on TCM with Silent Films. Tonight is an oldie and a long one, about 3 and a half hours long. It’s the 1923 La Roue film by filmmaker Abel Gance. I’m currently watching that as I type this out (on my new phone). So far the best parts has been the written stuff, though the scene of the image on the violin was good.

La Roue

I think I like watching these late at night now in order to lull me to sleep. I think it’s the music and the black and white video that does it.

So here is what my Silent Sunday Night and weekend has been like…

Deadpool

Deadpool
Just recently purchased and watched Deadpool today. It was pretty funny. He is definitely not the typical hero, or anti-hero for that. I think I liked the jokes about Hugh Jackman and Wolverine the most. I had some good giggles there. Continue reading “Silent Sunday Nights May 15th”
