Sunday Post

Another week and now Christmas season is here. Did everyone who celebrates have a great feast day? We had a good one with all the usual food and snackies. We watched Charlie Brown Thanksgiving after dinner and then settled in for a viewing of White Christmas, which might be our favorite holiday movie. A great way to start off the Christmas season!  

This week I returned to the realm of discussion posts- it's been a while! Do you decorate w/ books? It was nice to see what everyone thought on that topic. 

Anyways, have an awesome week!   


Song of the week


PULP COVER OF THE WEEK: 


BOOKISH LINKS 

This is nice- a marine center and some cool stepping stones on the water.   


This one I love how they have this open park like area in this amazing mall, which is connected to a transit station and everything is just hopping. 


Awesome Gundam robot statue. This one's only 2.5 minutes. 


And to close- this is amazing!

  1. Glad to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was good too. We kept it small and it was actually 70 degrees here so we had our feast outside on the deck. It felt more like a 4th of July BBQ than Thanksgiving but it was really nice.

  4. The Walking on Water video is wonderful! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    We had traditional fare, but I had Baz buy frozen rolls in case I didn't feel like baking and I didn't realize they had to rise for six hours before baking. ๐Ÿ˜… So, we didn't have rolls until today, but they were great with leftovers. ๐Ÿ˜Š Happy to hear you had a good one. ๐Ÿ‚

    Have a wonderful new week! ๐ŸŒž

    1. Isn't it amazing?

      I love rolls. Ours didn't really turn out this year though so they were a bust. :) I can eat those all days though!

      You also!!!

  5. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. We had a good day just with the family, lots of food! I don't know about where you live, but here where I am it's been "Christmas season" since even before Halloween, I couldn't believe how early the stores were putting out Christmas stuff and people putting up lights. I guess this year folks are getting their celebrations and happiness in whenever and wherever they can though, so I get that :)

  7. Glad you enjoyed your thanksgiving celebrations.
    I’m not sure the piles of books on any available surface is really an acceptable decorating style :)

    Wishing you a great reading week

    1. True! I never seem to get tired of that movie. And right? We watched on Apple TV but it doesn't seem right not to have Charlie Brown on!

  14. Happy Thanksgiving! I wish we celebrated it! We have St Andrews Day on Monday, our patron saints holiday but no holiday alas!

  15. I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'm not a huge fan of the holiday, so it was alright. Definitely been watching lots of Christmas movies though and getting some reading in, so that's always nice.

  16. Glad you had a nice day! Mine was okay, small obviously hah. I think that is probably the difference for most people, less... well, other people! I cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner though! And the Elves are back so that is a hoot ๐Ÿ˜‚

  20. Sounds like a yummy Thanksgiving Greg. And I can't wait to decorate our home for Christmas. I'll probably do that next weekend.
    Stay safe and happy reading.

  21. I didn't catch Charlie Brown this year but I did watch the Macy's parade which is something I hadn't done in many years. And (confession time): I've never actually seen White Christmas. Ack!

  22. Glad you have had such a lovely Thanksgiving, Greg:)). We are now working out what to do about Christmas, given we are currently in Tier 2 COVID restrictions, so a general gathering of the clan is going to be out this year. But even so, we'll do the best we can to be together with our families... I loved the footage of the huge robot and the sea walk. Thank you so much for the links!

  29. We're still mass tidying and it'll be another week anyway to get everything sorted the way I want it-and for the first time in 6 years, I'm actually putting up tinsel! It'll be nice for the photos I'm going to take of the new room!

  36. It was a different celebration than usual. Glad yours was great. Did get the Christmas decorations up earlier than normal due to boring books this week.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We celebrate Little Christmas on the Sat before Advent 1st and I hear ya, too much food

    ReplyDelete
  38. We love White Christmas too! I may love Holiday Inn a little more but that awful blackface scene is so jarring. I don't even know what to think about it.

    Enjoy your week!

  43. Happy to hear you had a good Thanksgiving... Obviously thanksgiving isn't a thing here in the UK, but seeing all the feasts across social media have me looking forward to Christmas dinner, I won't lie. Ha!

    A lovely week to you.

    ReplyDelete
  44. We pride ourselves on the number of Christmas movies we watch, but did you know that I've never seen White Christmas? I think we will remedy that this year.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanksgiving was nice but quiet. Football seemed to consume our television. I can't recall the last movie I watched. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  46. We had a great Thanksgiving here! I cooked all day and got dinner on the table only 30 minutes later than I expected! Lol. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

  47. We bought the Peanuts holiday collection so I get to watch each holiday without tracking what channel it'll be on!

    Thanksgiving was chill - we definitely have too much food left over though!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The last one is cool, but my favorite is walking on water, thanks so mucj for sharing!

  49. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, you definitely seemed to have started the holiday season right. I can’t believe we’ve got to December, I thought this year was going to drag and it has flown by.
