The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
I can't believe Thanksgiving week is here already! I need to start going through my recipes for some ideas. My mom and I like to try out new recipes every year. Sometimes this goes well and sometimes not so much (like the time we made parsnips). Last year I made pomegranate and dark chocolate cups. It will be just the three of us this year so we are going to have a beef roast instead of dealing with a turkey. Honestly I like turkey sandwiches but I hate leftover turkey. Smoked turkey is pretty good but also pretty expensive!
My year is winding down at the library. I have just one more program left. We are having a Star Wars marathon next Saturday, showing the original trilogy. Hopefully it will be a success. If the weather is nice we'll even make popcorn to go with the pizza (the popcorn machine smokes so it has to be used outside at a distance from the building). I also have to pick a book to read for our children's storyline (dial a story). I usually go with a Christmas/winter themed picture book since I take my turn every December. Last year I read a Little House on the Prairie picture book (about the time Mr. Edwards played Santa Claus and brought Laura and Mary presents from "Santa" because the creek was too high for him to cross). Not sure what I'll be reading this year. Any recommendations?
I will be going to see Mockingjay Part 2 with a friend and her husband today (Sunday). I'm glad the reviews are very positive so far. I only watched the first one in theater and the rest on DVD. I'm pretty picky about what I'll spend my money to go see. I will definitely be watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, hopefully several times while it's in theater. Can't wait!
