It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

Easter has come and gone, and we celebrated in a very small way, as I am sure everyone else did as well. We had a virtual breakfast with my mom – I put my laptop at a seat at the table across from Wyatt, and we video chatted as we ate Billy’s special recipe pancakes. I love that my mom even got dressed up in a dress for it. Wyatt enjoyed a few gifts from the Easter Bunny, including peanut butter eggs that were obtained before lockdown at the beginning of March. Wyatt and I had a tea party with his bunny and badger, Billy baked bread, I made a quarantine version of broccoli cheese soup for dinner, and that was our day. A very small humble day, where we missed our family, but knew that being apart was important this year.

Like a lot of others, I am finding reading more difficult these days. But I have managed to read a book or two, somehow. One good, one not so much, but I read the not so good book anyway. Lol.

Read Last Week:

This was the good book that I read. I am enjoying this series about a library in a lighthouse. I would love to live and work there!

Reading This Week:

I seem to want to read ghost stories right now. I’m not sure what that is about, but I’m rolling with it. I miss the library! Without the library, I have been finding my books on Amazon – either the free ones or the books including in my Unlimited subscription. And if I really want to read one, I buy it. This one was in Unlimited, if I remember right. I only just started it but so far it is ok.


We are watching When Calls the Heart – it is perfect for the mindset I am in. Plus there are like 6 seasons. This weekend though we watched The Miss Fisher movie, Crypt of Tears, and the new Little Women, which I loved just as much this time as I did in the theater.

It’s been a minute…

Mini Post: Tiptoeing into Homeschooling

Stay safe my friends, and stay home if you are not an essential worker or have a thing you have to do, like get groceries and medicine.

  1. I love libraries and lighthouses, so Booked Trouble looks like something I would enjoy.

    I like that we have technology for these troubled times. My daughter surprised me by calling on Face Time from her iPhone and showed me all the other people she had in her home. A small number compared to her usual parties.

    Enjoy your week and stay safe. Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. It’s a good little cozy series. 🙂

      Technology has been such a blessing right now. My mom is isolating alone and it makes me feel better to know we can at least see her face through video chat. I am glad that you were able to “visit” with your daughter too. 🙂

    Both of these sound good. One would think I would have more time for reading, but I’ve been doing a lot of other things. Concentrating is hard these days.

    Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I know right! It seems like this would be the perfect time to read – but like you, I find it hard to concentrate. I think that might be why I can only read ghost stories right now lol. They don’t take a lot of effort, plus they aren’t little idyllic stories that make me think of what we are missing out on. The characters are in a situation beyond their control and unsure what to do. Lol. I can relate.

    I think I’ve read one of the library in a lighthouse series. I have plenty of previously purchased books on my shelves and Kindle to keep me reading for years. Picking which one I want to read is the hard part. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. Happy Easter! Sounds like you had a nice day in spite of the distancing. It’s so different this year, huh? Ugh.

    Booked for Trouble looks great!!

    I just saw your comment on my blog and I’m wishing you guys safety and health! I’m nervous for anyone i know in the Detroit area, although from what they’re saying it’s probably widespread everywhere else too and the testing just hasn’t caught up yet. My cousin and her husband in Ann Arbor (she works for UM as a nurse) both had it and have recovered. They don’t have pre- existing/ underlying issues and got off relatively mild. Not that it was fun.

    Be safe!

    1. Sooo different. 😦

      I am hoping that the shelter-in-place order has really reduced the spread to the rest of the state. 😦 Detroit definitely got hit hard for many, many reasons but if shelter in place could slow the spreading to the rest of Michigan, then I really hope that it has. My husband is actually still working some days of the week onsite, as an essential worker. His company is helping to distribute testing kits but I think only for this area? I am not certain. I know that it is a lot easier for people in this area to get tested now! I am glad to hear that although your cousin and her husband got Covid they had a mild case and are recovered. 🙂 I do follow an Instagram account that everyday reports a different hospitals successes in the last 24 hours and it helps to see that.
