The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
A quiet week, it's been cold but the snow has stopped for the most part. I did a bit of reading and caught up on a few shows, and started a few others. It looks like winter around here, it's bleak and cold and snowy. I am looking forward to spring and sunshine and longer days. Winter has its own beauty of course, a kind of melancholy allure that I'm sometimes in the mood for. And then other times not so much!
There's been a stray cat around, I noticed him sleeping up against the house. I put out some food and water and hoped to lure him close so I can see if he belongs to someone, but he's keeping his distance. He's eating the food though. :)
As I mentioned last week I finished up S2 of Black Sails, and S3 starts this weekend. Since I don't have Starz I'm going to miss it, and will have to catch up later via Prime. It's too bad because the end went out on a high note and I'm excited to see where they go next. The S3 premiere of The 100 was this week as well, and I was a little disappointed actually. Not much happened, although the crew did sing along to a Violent Femmes song- so that was a highlight.
Last week I reviewed Need and had a discussion post on the story elements of Star Wars The Force Awakens, where I speculated on what they could have done with the story. Feel free to stop by and share your thoughts.
