My Challenge is over

..and so is my time off! I am honest, I could take 2 more weeks straight away. It would have been nice to not be sick…

I still enjoyed being off work & being able to do what I want. My challenge could have gone better but in the end I am still happy with what I got done. And most importantly – I enjoyed reading and am out of my slump for good. Hopefully it stays like that.

Spinning Silver / Naomi Novik

The Outsider / Stephen King

Oathbringer / Brandon Sanderson –> 367/1243

The Traitor Baru Cormorant / Seth Dickinson –> 25%

Black Wolves / Kate Elliott –> 63%

Saga Vol. 6 / Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

I read 3 out of 6 and one is a graphic novel I bought the other day. I thought I would get Black Wolves done for sure, but once I wasn’t so sick anymore I actually left the house a couple of times and did other things πŸ˜€

I also did a lot of cooking & baking and watched tons of wrestling. Especially Lucha Underground, because I am a bit in love with Pentagon Jr. I started Season 1 and am now up to episode 7.


We also binge-watched Glow Season 2 and I liked it even more than Season 1, even though there was a lack of Joey Ryan & wrestler cameos in general πŸ˜‰ It’s great storytelling and I love all the girls and Alison Brie was amazing! Also, Marc Meron is the best and this show has so many funny scenes without actually being a pure comedy. Happy, that Season 3 is coming!

We are looking for a new show to start. Mr. DZ won’t have any sports to watch soon, when footy & golf are over and the cricket hasn’t started yet. We will see what Netflix has to offer. Unfortunately we are both a bit picky and it takes a long time to agree on a show. I’d give Last Kingdom a chance…

Also, it’s THAT time again…


Did you guys have your Pumpkin Spice latte yet? πŸ˜€ I am a big fan of pumpkin spice and already had 2 Starbucks coffees….. And I made my own pumpkin spice and want to do syrup again as well. Here, I did pumpkin spice Bread & Butter pudding last week:





  1. I loved Glow!
    I’m starting in on the autumn flavored things. I bought Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Booberry Friday in a MONSTER pack. πŸ˜› But I had Chider yesterday, that’s apple cider plus chai, equals amazing! I might get a pumpkin pie coffee from my favorite independent cafe today. πŸ™‚

  2. That pumpkin spice Bread looks scrumdiddlyumptious! Haven’t yet had my pumpking spice latte, but fall won’t end without me having it. Well, what I get isn’t exactly a latte, I guess, since I don’t like coffee, but that pumpkin spice thingy will be in it. I love the flavor.

  3. I’m not usually a fan of coffee, so I don’t do the PSL. However, fall is when I treat myself to chai lattes instead of regular tea, so I’m looking forward to that! And spiced cider, and pumpkin breads, and pumpkin pie, and… well. Everything except the coffee. πŸ˜‰

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! I hope the reading continues to go well now that your break is over!
