We finally had a nice relaxing week. Yay! I needed it. Today we went to the zoo with my brother and family, we had a great time. Wyatt loved the polar bears and the giraffes (whom he calls Gigi after his stuffed animal giraffe), while my niece L. loved the lions and zebras (my favorite too!) The zoo is in the process of building a brand new habitat for the red pandas and the tigers – I can’t wait to see what they do, as their new penguin habitat is amazing.
This week motown is gearing up to honor the passing of one of their own, with the funeral services of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. This whole week in Detroit has viewings and and a free tribute concert in her honor and memory, with her funeral taking place on Friday. There is a plan to line the street with pink Cadillacs, as many as heed the call. It was a truly a sad day here in Detroit, when Franklin passed.
Read Last Week:
I loved both of these very different reads!! Dear Bob and Sue was a very entertaining read, and I feel inspired! Billy and I used to vacation all the time at the National Parks, but haven’t been for a while. Now, I just want to hit the road and start seeing as many as I can again. Do you have a favorite NP? So far, mine is Shenandoah.
Look for my full reviews this week! Also, I chickened out of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. Just looking at the photos and imagining the last moments of these people had me teary and then later on, wide awake in bed. My true crime reading time in life might have come to an end.
Reading This Week:
The picture books are right next to the YA books in our library, so usually after getting Wyatt’s books, I wander over to see what I can find. I saw this one and remembered how I had wanted to read it, but like so many others, got knocked aside a few times. I decided now was the perfect time to read it. I am only like 20 pages in, but I am hooked!
Sharp Objects – so freaking good!!!
We just started Castle Rock, and I am reserving judgement for now. I have high hopes – and it is cool to see so many faces from the movies, etc show up (like Sissy Spacek!)
How about you all? What have you been up to lately?
