Last week we kept things low key, and then Friday I had a social distance night with my friends – where we had cake and celebrated Kelly and Chrissy’s birthday. It was lemon raspberry and so delicious! Then Saturday we had a much needed distance picnic with my brother and his family, and my cousin and his girls. I haven’t seen my cousin in months, which is not the norm as we are as close as siblings, but..2020. So it was really good to be able to sit and chat with him again, around the chatter of all the kiddos. We finished with a small hike in the woods and said we would have to do something similar again soon.

Read Last Week:

I really loved this book, but then I usually enjoy Goodman’s work. I love a school setting, and she layers modern life against classic works in such clever ways.

Reading this Week:

I feel like reading some Gothic books this season! All that atmosphere is perfect for the moodiest season. I would love any suggestions that you have!

My Autumn 2020 Bucket List

Homeschooling: September


We finished both Wild Bill and Father Brown and are still searching for their replacements. I miss Father Brown! We are still watching Cobra Kai, and started the new Great British Baking Show as well.

And that is it from my corner of Michigan! Stay safe everyone.

  1. I also enjoy Carol Goodman’s books and loved The Sea of Lost Girls. Now I am curious about Stranger Diaries, as I have enjoyed some Elly Griffiths books, too.

    Your get-togethers sound wonderful! I could use some of those outings, but we can’t leave this facility at all…yet. Sigh.

    Enjoy your week!

  2. A social distance night with friends sounds exceptional. Lemon-raspberry cake? I need to look for a recipe. That sounds great.

    I had to look up Carol Goodman, and, yes, I have read Lake of Dead Languages by her. I liked it a lot, but that was in 2003. Maybe I need to catch up with that author.

    I was so excited to see that British Baking Show is returning. I will be watching it soon.

    Have a good week!

  3. Sounds like a good week! I haven’t read anything by Goodman but I’m adding her to my list and I need to pick up the Elly Griffiths. I had gotten it from the library months ago but ended up having to return it unread. Hope you have a great week.

  4. Oh that’s nice you were able to get together with friends and family. It’s so hard with this pandemic dragging on not being able to see people, or having to jump through all the hoops to do so.

    I’m so glad to hear the Goodman book is good!

    Hope your son is doing well! Be well this week!!!
