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!
I am still semi-absent as I tackle lingering fatigue and symptoms, but hopeful some med adjustments will help provide some relief soon until additional testing is started. In the meantime, I apologize for continuing to respond to comments and social media at a snail’s pace. A larger portion of my time is still spent in bed.
I have decided to revive my “You Choose, I Read” feature. It has been in the works for a month or two, but after a kind follower (Thank you Karen) let me know that it was missed, I am even more excited to bring it back this coming week. Real life is moving at a more steady pace, and I continue to explore more healthy and clean eating and physical activity to aid with symptoms. I am making homemade yogurt this weekend and actually excited about that haha. I guess I have hit that point in life where even the little things are the best. I also discovered a new blend of tea called Cha Cha by Adagio Teas that I have been infusing with lavender for headaches and highly recommend.
Aside from that, it has been slow and steady here at home. Which is completely fine with me.
The Shape of Water
By Guillermo Del Torro & Daniel Kraus
It is 1962, and Elisa Esposito—mute her whole life, orphaned as a child—is struggling with her humdrum existence as a janitor working the graveyard shift at Baltimore’s Occam Aerospace Research Center. Were it not for Zelda, a protective coworker, and Giles, her loving neighbor, she doesn’t know how she’d make it through the day.
Then, one fateful night, she sees something she was never meant to see, the Center’s most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man, captured in the Amazon, to be studied for Cold War advancements. The creature is terrifying but also magnificent, capable of language and of understanding emotions…and Elisa can’t keep away. Using sign language, the two learn to communicate. Soon, affection turns into love, and the creature becomes Elisa’s sole reason to live.
But outside forces are pressing in. Richard Strickland, the obsessed soldier who tracked the asset through the Amazon, wants nothing more than to dissect it before the Russians get a chance to steal it. Elisa has no choice but to risk everything to save her beloved. With the help of Zelda and Giles, Elisa hatches a plan to break out the creature. But Strickland is on to them. And the Russians are, indeed, coming.

I am currently checking out Fallet on Netflix and a few other shows. So I have not actually decided what I am watching. I am also still favoring my classical music station on Pandora and the sound machine due to the tinnitus. What have you been reading or watching this week? Any recommendations for me?
