Sunday Bookends: Hospital stays, late-night reading, and Anne of Green Gables movies

It’s time for our Sunday morning chat. On Sundays, I ramble about what’s been going on, what I and the rest of the family have been reading and watching, and what I’ve been writing, and some weeks I share what I am listening to.

What’s Been Occurring

I mentioned yesterday in my Saturday Afternoon Tea and Chat post (or whatever I am calling it because I change the name every time I post it) that we had a very rough week. You can read more about my sickness and my mom’s week-long hospital stay in that post.

Today I hope to mentally recover a bit from all the craziness with some reading and catching up on The Chosen before the new episode premieres tonight. I will also most likely visit my parents and help Mom with her recovery from gallbladder surgery.

What I/we’ve been Reading

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was sick this week and up all night one night and most of the night a couple more. During the all-nighter, I started A Highland Christmas by M.C. Beaton. It is a Hamish MacBeth Mysteries book and the first I’ve read of M.C. Beaton’s.

I will finish it today.

I’m also reading The Reckoning Trees by Alicia Gilliam and enjoying it. I decided I needed something lighter on the night I couldn’t fall asleep so I put it aside then but am back into it this week.

This upcoming week I will be plowing through the rest of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with The Boy.

At night Little Miss and I have been listening to Fortunately The Milk by Neil Gaiman or reading Paddington Marches On.

The Husband is reading a collection of short stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes.

The Boy seems to be avoiding reading until we get back into school on Monday.

What We watched/are Watching

With everyone being sick or running around this week, we didn’t find much time to sit down and watch anything together.  I watched Anne of Green Gables The Sequel and also a few episodes of The Andy Griffith Show.

What I’m Listening To

Right now I am listening to The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper Basham on Audible.

I’m ashamed to say that I did not listen to music this week. I think if I had it would have made the week a bit less stressful.

Now it’s your turn. What have you been doing, watching, reading, listening to or writing? Let me know in the comments or leave a blog post link if you also write a weekly update like this.

  1. I’m trying to mostly rest and get my lungs back to working normally again. I also got sick and it seems to be the thing this season. I watch certain vlogger’s and they too are coughing and speaking with a hoarse voice. Even vlogger’s over seas in other countries. Seems being sick is happening all around the world right now. I started reading a Catherine Anderson book called Maple Leaf Harvest. I tried watching that new Jurassic park movie that just came out but it is so silly. The dinosaurs are cool to watch. I watched this other movie called The Lie which is about two teenagers and just how lies work when it tears apart their parents lives. It also was awful. I hope you and your family are all feeling better soon. My mother-in-law had her Gall bladder removed, my cousin also did recently ( she is in her 40’s) and our neighbor just had his removed a couple months ago (also in his 40’s and he runs everyday) and if you watch the Dugger’s, their daughter Jill I believe had her gallbladder removed not too long after she had her third baby. Lot of gallbladders and Thyroid problems I am noticing out there in the world.

    • The cough I had did NOT want to let go. I hope you are well on the mend now!

      I will look up the book too.

      Mom is doing much better and yeah, it’s odd how many people seem to be having issues. My grandmother, aunt and cousin all had theirs out but that was years ago.


So, what do you think? Leave me a comment! I love to meet new people and chat with ones I already know!
