Good morning! (or afternoon or evening, whenever you are reading this) Last week was a pretty good week. Yesterday I spent a few hours helping pack up my mom’s house before we put it on the market, and my brother found the biggest book in the world in the basement. My stepdad was a bit of a collector, and this was obviously his, my mother had never even seen it before. And honestly, we don’t know what to do with it. It is an old newspaper register from the Terre Haute Tribune, 1948. My mom is downsizing and well, doesn’t need a book of this size. Lol. I was thinking of contacting the Terre Haute Historical Society or library, but I am sure it would cost a zillion dollars to ship it so it would have to be a pick up situation. I would love to hear suggestions.
I didn’t read as much as I wanted last week. I started listening to a podcast that has me hooked, called Your Own Backyard. You may have seen in the news this week that two people have been apprehended in the murder of Kristin Smart, who went missing 23 years ago. This is the podcast that actually helped the police to crack the case. It is very well done. I had not actually heard of this case until this week – probably because I am the same age that Smart would be today had she not been taken. I was not paying attention to anything at all back then, certainly not the news. This pod is fascinating and sensitive to Smart and her family.
But since my brain can’t figure out how to read and listen to a podcast at the same time, I have to divide my free time between the two. And I had some really good books! I did read a bit of The Nature of Witches and I love it! I will probably binge Your Own Backyard the beginning of this week, then dedicate the rest of the week to The Nature of Witches.
I did finish up my reread of Watership Down; it was just as amazing this time around!
Posted Last Week:
We are watching The Irregulars (I talk a little about it in my Coffee Time Post), and we are pretty hooked. We also watched some Father Brown, which is apparently one of my favorite shows since I can watch it all the time.
And that is about it from our corner of the world! What is going on in your world? Stay safe everyone!
