This week’s Sunday Post feels a little sparse to me. Or maybe repetitive. I’m just surprised it’s Sunday again!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at The Caffeinated Reviewer. You should check out her blog. And then check out the blogs of all the other awesome folks doing the Sunday Post. There are links. Lots and lots of links.
I can’t believe it’s Sunday again. The week feels like it flew by. The Husbeast’s vacation is almost over, and I’m just glad he had the time to be home. This has been a rough year for health issues in our family, and having the time away from work has really helped.
Thankfully, the two of us are feeling OK, so we can prop up the ones who aren’t. We just need a little offline time to recharge.
I’m using my reading and writing time to try and relax. The Alisha Rai books were a good choice this week. I’ve needed lighter fare and the romantic comedy in her Modern Love series has been just what I needed.
Does anyone else notice their Sunday Post getting repetitive? Do you guys finish everything you start in the week, or do you carry over projects (books, crafts, etc) the way I do?
Last Week on Stringchronicity
Not sure what will be on the blog next week aside from memes. I’m going to be trying to stockpile some posts so I can get some Other Writing done this week.
I read The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai. To be honest, it’s about the only thing I finished this week.
What I’m Reading, Listening to and Watching
I have a couple of books on the go. I immediately started Alisha Rai’s Girl Gone Viral after finishing The Right Swipe. Unfortunately, sleep made me put it down. I’m still working through Stitches and Witches and Save The Cat Writes a Novel. I didn’t do a lot of driving this week, so we’re still working on the same old audio book.
Confession: I’m a bit of a music nerd. I watch music theorists break down songs like Stairway to Heaven for fun and listen to hot takes on how David Bowie influenced current music. I am a huge fan of cover songs and style parody.
Ali Spagnola regularly style-parodies popular music, and shows all the steps she took to get the final product. I’m not familiar with this week’s song, but I’m definitely familiar with the style.
She’s channelling the Europop sound of the late 90’s in a weepy 4 chord song. The style parody is inspired by Aqua but I have a different vision in my head. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, aka The Pet Shop Boys, giggling while they remix Always On My Mind.
I wonder if they too looked up and said “My God, this is obnoxious!”
On the Needles
I’m plodding away at a pair of socks and added a foot onto a simple granny-stripe afghan. Next year I’m going to get my sock expectations done early so I can spend the winters snuggled up in blankies-in-progress.
Being very frugal with the money this week, and no new ARCs. Time to work from the TBR list!
