First, my heart is breaking for all of those suffering in the fires. I just cry over the news these days, as I am sure many of you do as well. I am planning on becoming more of an activist for our environment – I have always done what I could, I’m a vegetarian, recycle, use sustainable goods when I can, but I can be much better and much more active.
We celebrated my birthday yesterday, and it was just a small little family dinner out, which was nice. Today we went to the Detroit Institute of Arts with my brother and his family, which was great. Wyatt seemed to enjoy it, until naptime came and went and we were still there. Then he got a bit cranky… Tomorrow morning Billy and I are having a date morning, and going for a hike while Wyatt hangs out with his grandma at home. I am looking forward to an invigorating walk in the woods, to clear my head and and relax!
Read Last Week:
I finished up Virgil Wander – hands down one of my favorite books of the year. Absolutely loved it. And now, I definitely want to fly a kite at night in the middle in the snow.
I also read Snowlicious, a short and sweet little romance. It was a great read to follow up my two more serious books! Quick and easy and fun. And snow! Review this week.
And finally, The Glorious Life of the Oak by my favorite nature writer John Lewis-Stempel. I ordered this book and had to wait two weeks or so for it to come in from England. I was so excited to read it, and I loved it! Another short and quick read, all about, well, the life of the Oak. Lol. I found it pretty interesting! I had planned to read Heart Berries, which sounds amazing, but also heartbreaking. I couldn’t deal with more sad this week, so I skipped it for now. I will go back to it because it does look really good.
Reading This Week:
I am starting this book about L.M. Montgomery this week – as well as trying to read Anne of Green Gables again. I think I am more in the mood for it than I was last time.
Riverdale, Reign, YouTube junk and that is about it. Not much tv happening over here.
