This week was a pretty good one, despite everything going on around us. We took the week off of schooling, as I have decided we are going to continue on through the summer, just less formally and with weeks off here and there. Then Billy took a few days off work too, so we just had fun bumming around the crib, as my dad says. Saturday was the summer solstice, so we did some fun sun art, ate summery foods, and then just hung out in the backyard, enjoying the night and letting Wyatt play in the sprinkler. For Father’s Day, I don’t know what we are doing yet honestly- COVID is making things hard. Then this week I have a virtual conference for Charlotte Mason, a homeschooling style I want to learn more about, and of course, we begin our schooling again. It is going to be deer week around here, partially because deer make me think of summers up north, and partially because the new Buck Moon starts today (Sunday the 21st).
Read Last Week:
I loved The Glamourist!!! I loved The Vine Witch last year, and I really enjoyed this return to the world that Smith has created. I still haven’t finished Honey and Venom, but I should finish this week.
Reading This Week:
I probably won’t have a ton of time with the conference workshops, but if I manage to get some reading time in AND I finish Honey and Venom, then I am going to start these.
Our family loves making and creating things, so I am very excited to start The Creative Family Manifesto. And then Opium and Absinthe is one of the Prime Reads free books for the month, and I love Lydia Kang! I was completely sucked in to The Impossible Girl, The November Girl, and a A Beautiful Poison, so I am very much looking forward to reading this one.

We are all over the place with our tv and movie watching right now. We are watching The Order (Netflix), Nancy Drew (CW), and Rosemary and Thyme (Britbox). Nancy Drew the reboot is really fun – kind of dark and grown up and weird all at once. I like when they poke fun a little at the less modern ways Nancy would have accomplished things, like in one scene she goes to pick a lock and it is locked with a key card instead. For our movie nights, we are having a hard time finding anything. We watched I Capture the Castle on Friday night, but then last night couldn’t decide on anything, so we are going to try again tonight, since Billy has tomorrow off. It’s like an extra weekend night! Although I finished off the gummy bears so I need to resupply..
Stay safe all!
