Happy Pi Day everyone! I have an apple pie baking in the oven this morning, to celebrate with pie for breakfast. I had planned to get up early and get it started earlier, but daylight savings did me in. I always have a rough time adjusting (so does Wyatt) and I am thankful that we are homeschooling – that will make “springing forward” a little easier, I am guessing. At least for us! We had a pretty slow week, just kicked it around the house all week, homeschooling and working on projects, and getting in some sunshine as well. I did spend some time researching my ancestry this week as well, and finally found the names of my great-grandparent’s parents! I have been looking for a long time and was super excited about finding them. Duncan Bell and Mary Ann Galloway – and I always loved the name Duncan!
Read Last Week:
I checked out the folk tales book from the digital library and I think I may need to buy it; I am reading this slowly and I am going to start reading a tale or two out loud at night to Wyatt and Billy. I also finished Mission in Paris 1990. It was pretty interesting – I don’t read many books that are sort of political thrillers and it was a nice change. I will be posting my review later this week.
Reading This Week:
Spring always makes me want to read about farmers and farms and pastoral life. (and rabbits but I won’t reread Watership Down until April, like I do every year.) For the next week or two I will be reading The Farmer’s Daughter by Lisa R. Howeler, and Sheepish by Catherine Friend. Lisa also blogs over at Boondock Ramblings, and she posts excerpts from her books every week if you wanted to check her out!

Watched Last Week:
We have been all over the place with our television watching this week. Billy worked long hours, and by the time we got around to tv we were exhausted and wanted to sort of zone out. We watched the rest of Tudor Farm (a BBC show on Amazon) for most of the week, and Criminal Minds reruns on Netflix. Then we started Ginny and Georgia on Friday and it is so hard for me not to just binge it! It is so good! Then last night for movie night we watched the 2021 version of Blithe Spirits. It was ok, didn’t wow us too much, but I love all the actors in it, especially Dan Stevens and Leslie Mann, and the set and costumes were gorgeous. You can sell me on a movie by how pretty it is, and this was a pretty movie. We have never seen the original so I can’t compare it but I might need to check it out.
And that is about it from around these parts! What is going on in your neighborhood? I hope you all are dong well. Stay safe and have a good week!
