Welcome to a new linkup that will highlight the things we are currently reading, watching, listening and following. It will be a place where we can discover new books or article; shows or videos (or even sermons!); music or podcasts or audio books; and blogs, Instagram or Pinterest accounts. We can share what we like and what we don’t like and that way each person will find new things worth pursuing and steer clear of those that are not. So let’s get to it, shall we?
I mentioned a few days ago that I am currently listening to Before the Fall on Overdrive. Although I like the story so far, I’m having a hard time with all the language. I may end up abandoning it if it gets to be too much. I wish books had a rating like the movies do! This would be an ‘R’ for sure.
I also mentioned the other books I have on Overdrive and what I’m reading at night before bed on this post. I’m still working through all those.
I confess that I don’t watch much TV and I haven’t been to the movies in quite some time. However, we did watch Stranger Things on Netflix recently. It’s not my usual thing but my son, Timothy, had us watch it. I’m just glad I didn’t have nightmares. It’s a little spookier and creepier than I like. Regardless, now I’m hooked so I will probably watch season 2 when it comes out.
I’m also almost finished with Gilmore Girls. I’m in Season 7. Can’t believe how long it’s taken me! This is a show I watch on my own, so I usually watch it while I’m doing something.
The other thing I’m watching is an Andy Stanley series called Ask It. Our Life Group is watching it as homework and then we discuss the questions when we meet on every other Sunday night. Did you know there’s a question that makes it easy to determine the answer to all the other questions? Should I stay? Should I go? Buy it? Sell it? Start it? Stop it? All you have to do is ask it! We are on week 2 this week and I’ve already put it into practice this past week. Good stuff!
Besides books, which I’ve already mentioned, I like to listen to podcasts. My hands-down favorite right now is What Should I Read Next? with Anne Bogel. I just love the interaction between Anne and her guests as she asks for three books they love, one book they hate, what they’ve been reading lately and then she gives them three books to choose from to read next. My GoodReads TBR list has grown significantly from listening to this podcast!
One area that I like to read about, because I don’t feel I’m very good at, is home decorating. One of my favorite blogs regarding all things home (and some DIY) is Ann Drake’s On Sutton Place. Her blog is classy and all the posts she shares are simply lovely. It is my muse and motivates me to keep trying to decorate, to keep decluttering, to keep making my space as lovely as possible, on a shoestring budget. Although her design style is “classically vintage” and mine is more “coastal cottage” I still get a lot of ideas for design from her blog. For example, here’s a recent, easy DIY project that I just love!
I think I need to go collect some pinecones soon!
And this gingerbread cake…doesn’t it look amazing!?
I pin like crazy from her blog! Check out On Sutton Place and let me know what you think!
