The sunbirds have been nesting again. The nest under the house also seems to be getting used as well. I am so happy! ❤ As well as the other birds nesting in the area, several trees in the neighbourhood are in bloom again.
We got a bit of rain towards the end of last week. It was a pleasant change but we still have a long way to go before level three water restrictions are lifted from our township. In any case, it appears that we will be going into a weekly mowing schedule in the next week or so.
On Monday night, I was woken up by my hubby who told me that there was a weird critter in the yard next door. Reluctantly, I got up and looked through the toilet window to see what appeared to be a rat about the size of a medium-sized cat. The weird thing is that this rodent-looking creature had a furry tail like a marsupial but didn’t hop. It hopped away soon after, leading to us not getting any photos of it. I doubt that the mystery will ever be solved, but it was pretty cute to look at.
This past week, the developer of Microtown added EA Update #4: The Pig Update. This update focuses on animal units. It adds sheep and cows to pens (the buildings already existed in-game) with these units also being interactable by carriers including the existing pig units. It also adds in a few more buildings to go with the addition of cow and sheep products. On top of this, it deals with a bunch of bugs, improves on some existing units+ buildings, It might not seem like a big deal to some, but it reinforces the difference between a lot of indie developers and the likes of Bethesda.
I’ve been listening to a lot of the albums of alternative rock group Studebaker’s Baker Shop this past week. Every three to four months, I find myself returning to their tunes. When I came across their music on Jamendo years ago, I never knew that they would become a regular listen whilst walking along the esplanade when I was living in Hervey Bay. I also listened to K-Pop boyband Superjunior and Fleetwood Mac’s Tango in the Night during that period as well, with the latter being a good addition for running around the circuit.
I’ve also been listening to classic rock bands such as Rush, Styx, Foreigner, Asia, and Europe, with the occasional listen to a greatest hits compilation of Blues Rock legend Steve Winwood. Sure, some of his newer tracks (the ones from the mid to late ’80s) moved to a more adult contemporary sound, but those tracks are what led to me liking his music in the first place. The earlier stuff was just the “icing on the cake”.
Hubby and I finished watching Kemono Nichi: Rise Up! this past week after waiting on the English dubs. It lived up to my quirky inclinations but is certainly not for everyone.
Hubby tried rewatching Assassin’s Pride again this week. Last time around, the first episode was enough for him to stop. This week, he forced himself to watch around six episodes before he gave up.
MANGA & WEBTOONS
I read a lot of manga and webtoons this past week. Unfortunately, my return to reading Mission of Love has proven to be less than ideal, with me seeing some flaws that are the trademark of the era in which the series was published. On a good note, I still have a lot of other series to fall back on should I decide to discontinue this title.
LIGHT NOVELS & WEBNOVELS
I continued reading some recently-started titles this week, as well as the series Armoured Girl Monette. Whilst I have been reading more series with a major romantic plot, it is nice to read something the deviates from the norm, which I’ve found with this series so far. Whether it holds up until chapter fifty-seven… I have no clue, but I am willing to see how this light novel pans out. Akuyaku Reijou wa Danna-sama wo Yasesasetai is also panning out to be a fun read. There are also six chapters. So, I will also be able to enjoy this odd story for a few months before it concludes.
Of all of the new series that I’ve come across during the past week, one has me most excited. I first came across the webtoon adaptation of Remarried Empress a few weeks ago and highly enjoyed it. Well, it turns out there is a light novel version that is currently being translated into English. Yes, I will start reviewing it soon because it is a great premise so far and I am guessing that light novel will cover some things not touched on in the webtoon. The light novel is also further along as well, which means that it will take me longer to reach that stage known as “stare at a calendar as I wait for a new instalment”.
A big thank you to readers who’ve been following this blog for an extended period of time, and to new followers. Whichever category you happen to fall into, here’s wishing you an enjoyable and productive week filled with good company and some fun stories to engage with. I also welcome you to post about what you’ve been reading about of late in the comments section.
