Sunday Sum~Up

 

SundaySum-Up
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!

This will probably be my last Sunday Sum~Up until the New Year. I have an upcoming blog break planned to begin on December 22nd. Our son will be leaving right after Christmas for several weeks, so the plan is to take some much-needed time and dedicate it to family and rest (when not working). It has been a great year, but not without challenges. I am a tad exhausted and still combating symptoms as we prep to celebrate. So I believe a small break is a good call at this point, as many of us will be incredibly busy over the next two weeks.

I did have a very satisfying week that included a trip into the actual office. It was fantastic to see my amazing coworkers and catch up. I have a wonderful job ❤ I am looking forward to not having to send the kids off to school for a bit 😉 The blog was fairly busy. And I was able to hop a little. I will be making more rounds today as able.

Oh and we worked on The Walking Gingerdead.. bahaha. Was tons of fun! Admittedly we have a morbid sense of humor and love TWD in this house.

The Shadow Girl

Synopsis:

It’s more than just her imagination—she’s fading away…

Painfully shy, thirteen-year-old Zylia Moss is no stranger to living life in the shadows, pushed aside and unnoticed by both her large family of nine and her fellow classmates. As her “symptoms” of invisibility increase, she uncovers an old family mystery leading to her Great-Aunt Angelica, who vanished curiously at Zylia’s age. If she’s going to save herself from being erased from the canvas of this world, she’ll have to travel far outside her comfort zone—maybe even to another dimension.


(New)Other HappeningsIt was a good week on the blog that ended with two reviews and three posts.

What I am watching this week:

Netflix Original: The Break (La trêve )thebreak.jpg

This Belgian crime drama begins with a suspected suicide and the mysterious details surrounding a young man’s death. It is too early to speculate, but there is a lot happening at only 3 episodes in. I am hooked!

Netflix Link

I was also unable to find an English subtitled trailer. But it is shaping up with promise 😉


I think that covers it for this week. Happiest of holidays to those who will be celebrating and a beautiful week to you all! I am looking forward to 2018 with each of you! Thank you for being here.

  1. Glad to hear you’re taking a break! I hope you can rejuvenate a bit. Merry Christmas to you if I don’t see you online before then!

    And that pipe through the belly of the walking gingerdead made me laugh 🙂

  2. Whoop whoop walking dead gingerdead men! Yum! 🙂

    A break around this time is well deserved for lots of us, such a hectic time that it is nice to chill. I have been a good boy and have drafted up posts for the coming week, look at me kicking procrastination in the a#s! 🙂 Including the Fluffy Bunny Christmas poem, yep, I went there! 😉 But with starting at 4 am for work and being in a supermarket too I won’t be blogging much and will take a break over the X-mas weekend, etc and probably in the week too as that is the wonder of scheduled posts, they will post even if I am being an old man and having a mid-afternoon nap! 🙂

    1. Haha yeah 4 am sucks. It is my normal life. I tire of people asking why I am exhausted at 8pm.. well let me tell you how my day starts hours before yours butthead. LOL. Wish you much luck with that this week and plenty of sleep. We are a west coast company that supplies all of US so start on eastern time. Bleh.. Add vitamins to the coffee.. it works!

      Sounds like you have a great week drawn up. I have mine ready to go as well. I have been managing to keep posts scheduled out a week in advance and it helps 🙂 I will start break Friday when nonhubs begins vacay. Of course, I still have work. No vacay here. My time is always utilized for medical appointments and down time.

      Looking forward to your blog this week 🙂

    1. Haha Inge.. I am seriously surprised you have not heard of this one. I saw a lot online about it. It is a bit older I think (a few years). You should see if you can watch it?

      The gingerdead were tons of fun and deliciousness 😉 We will do them again, I am sure.

      Have a lovely week ahead. I will be around for a few more days ❤

    Have a great Christmas!!!
