My Sunday-Monday Post

Check out the The Caffeinated Book Review for the Sunday Post
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
My thoughts go out to all those affected by the hurricane on the East Coast. I worry about the people and their homes and all the animals – I love all those wild horses over there, although I read that they did well during the storm.
Last week we were so responsible. Lol. We did all our things – school, therapy, making the calls I needed to make, work. We were so good that on Friday, Wyatt’s day off, we took a field trip to the farm to visit my aunt and uncle. Wyatt arrived in time to take a trip around the yard on the riding lawnmower with my uncle, then we headed to the farm stand where I bought apples, a gigantic butternut squash that Wyatt just had to have, and a few tiny little pumpkin gourds. I had originally gone down for fresh corn – my aunt and uncle live on her family’s farm, which grows corn and potatoes. I was surprised to learn that the corn was over! I didn’t know that was even a thing. But now I know and next year I will make sure to get down there by the end of August!
Saturday Wyatt woke up with a tiny cold – thanks preschool! We didn’t end up doing too much, opting to stay home, out of the 90 degree heat wave we are having (another ew) and let Wyatt try to recover.
Today was a big day – we tried the Impossible burger at White Castle and were pretty impressed!! Lol.
Read Last Week:
where the fire falls
Where the Fire Falls – I really enjoyed reading this book. I hope to do a mini-review later this week!
Reading This Week:
I am a bit through Crooked House, and when I am finished I am moving on to The Impossible Girl. I am super excited to read it! I loved Kang’s book, A Beautiful Poison, and I am hoping for another great read.
Watching:
We finished Anne with an E, which I loved. I seriously loved that tv show so much! I realize it is not true to the book, which I am sure it really annoying to Anne fans, but I am sure that the relationships are similar, that the love between Anne and Marilla and Matthew is still the same love, the one that has let so much light into all their lives. I plan on revisiting the books again this winter.
We are sort of poking about, looking for something else to watch. I am watching Reign on Netflix, Billy is watching Jack Ryan. Reign is kind of like Mary Queen of Scots meets Gossip Girl, but I am enjoying it nonetheless, in its glossiness and glitter. I think we both feel a bit of television hangover, after watching Sharp Objects and Anne with an E.
What about all of you? What has been going on with you?

  1. I was so glad to hear about the horses too, I was just reading that on the news. So glad that as bad as the storm was (and still is), it hasn’t been worse. And yay for some farm time! Sounds awesome. I love corn on the cob mmm the best.

    Glad to hear Where The Fire Falls was good!

    I’ve been watching Wentworth and deadwind on Netflix, and trying to catch up on Fear the Walking Dead.

    • It’s amazing isn’t it, how they were able to react to the situation? I am glad as well, that it was downgraded and not as bad – although it is pretty horrible. My dad is down there working right now.

      We just started Wentworth last night – I was immediately hooked. Then I got freaked out by the first episode and had to turn it off. I am scared about the little girl! Lol.

    • Not knowing that made me feel really disconnected to my food! For some reason I associate corn with fall, not summer. I am going to do better at paying attention to the actual season of food. We just get so used to seeing things available when they shouldn’t be I guess. 😦

      It was really good!! My husband said he liked the Impossible Burger more than their regular sliders!

  2. Nice variety of books. I knew corn had a season but wasn’t ready for it to be over already. I went to Panera the other day looking for corn chowder to find that they have switched to their fall soups. Somehow squash soup just wasn’t what I was looking for. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
