We’re almost halfway through December but this wrap-up still totally counts, right?
I’m making it count.
You’d think it being November that the main reason I disappeared was because I participated in NaNoWriMo. While that was the case, frankly, I didn’t even finish that. Too much baking had to get done over the month, and clearly there was also the matter of report cards to deal with. Sigh. Is it July yet?
This will be a pretty short wrap-up, looks like.
Been on a rut lately, and I’ve yet to get out of it. I am reading something that might possibly get me out, though finding the time to read is another matter entirely.
Asylum by Madeleine Roux || Unnatural Issue by Mercedes Lackey || Superman: The High-Flying History of the Man of Steel by Larry Tye
The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling || The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden || Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza || Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
No. Go away.
Movies and TV
I’ve done a TV binge for the most part. Mostly of baking and sweets stuff. Don’t think I’ll continue on with Zumbo’s Just Desserts though. It’s a little over the top and my mouth aches from all the overly-sweet pastries I’m staring at. Finished the second season of Stranger Things, and omgaaaaah. So. GOOD.
Also watched a lovely French film called Peau d’Ane (1970). I totally recommend it. And you can actually listen to a podcast review of the movie in Meg and my Fableulous Retellings blog.
Titan A.E. || The Prince of Egypt || Peau d’Ane || Monty Python and the Holy Grail || iZombie season 3 || Stranger Things season 2 || Zumbo’s Just Desserts season 1 || The Great British Baking Show season 3
The Wolf Among Us – Because for research purposes. Um. No, really, though, I played this for the Fableulous Retellings Podcast, and no regrets!
Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze – Totally found this gem on my Android and already finished the first two episodes. When’s the next one being released?! Seriously, love everything Miss Fisher. So long as the series also has a Jack Robinson. And a Dot. And a Mac. Yep.
I’ve also been playing random apps on my phone, but I won’t go crazy describing which. Suffice to say I tend to get sidetracked a lot…
As I said, a lot of baking happened. I baked for my school voldies, I baked for two sets of Thanksgiving dinners, I baked for school staff. I also ate random foods and cooked random foods. Too much, I tell ya. Too much.
Sliced fruits over a sugar cookie || Cheese ravioli with homemade marinara sauce || Lychee mochi and lychee-infused gelatin || Apple cupcakes || Apple scones || Assorted Japanese cookies || Mashed potatoes || Pecan pie
I really need to get back to book-inspired baking at some point.
Okay, now I’m hungry. Running off!
