Hey all! It’s Dino Day here! I had forgotten that we had bought tickets for Jurassic Quest, a drive-thru dinosaur event near us. I was writing appointments in my planner and saw it in there, thank goodness! I always have weird low key anxiety before these things – I am a person who likes detailed instructions about how to go about this stuff, like what to expect when we get there, when we should get there – like right at our scheduled time? Half an hour earlier? Planning is so hard. Lol. It will be fun though, I think Wyatt will dig it. So we have that coming up this afternoon. I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to go though yesterday, as the freeways around us were all closed. All of them. We had some serious rain and our county was flooded. Our governor declared a State of Emergency and everything. I checked the directions online though and there are ways for us to get to the event still so it’s a go. Things are still flooded but getting better. Let’s just hope that we don’t get more rain making it hard for us to get home!
I haven’t been reading much. Or watching much tv. I don’t really know what I have been doing. I did have a girls night the other day which was really great. It is always good to get together with my crew. And I left with five caterpillars! My friend raises caterpillars as well, but her kitchen is under a complete remodel and she is not ready or set up to do it right now – so I got to take them home! I will do another Butterfly Project post this week with updates- time moves fast when you are a caterpillar, as there are changes to report already.
Read Last Week:
I’m on a bit of a Barbara Michaels revisit. I have tried so many books and DNF’d them all – and honestly I think it’s me, not them. I’ve got my mom reading Michaels now too which is neat. I didn’t actually start this one until Friday night so I am not super far into it. I will finish it up this week.
I also started Oceanic by Aimee Nezhukumatathil , which is a gorgeous book of poetry. I am loving it and I want to read more by her.
Reading This Week:
Speaking of Aimee Nezhukumatathil, I am also starting this book by her this week. It has been on my list for a bit and I think it is the right time to read it.

I think we are going to start watching Sweet Tooth on Netflix tonight. As for what we have been watching, not really much. We have been rewatching Death in Paradise. We love that show and it has been years since we watched the first season. When Wyatt was a tiny baby we used to have to hold him for half an hour after he ate due to reflux, and he ate every two hours so we were pretty much always just sitting holding him or he was eating, since it also took half an hour to feed him the smallest amount of food (like seriously a few a ounces. Preemie life. Lol) That is when we started watching Death in Paradise and it was so funny, even as a little baby he would dance to the theme song. It was like this little chest popping type dance while he was eating. Now he still dances to it. It cracks us up. Anyway. We also watched Luca the other night, and loved it. It was so cute! We felt like it was a real buddy movie, an underdog story, and a story about accepting differences.
