Hi everyone! I had a pretty blah week last week, just sort of getting along everyday. It was just a week, I guess. I did babysit my SIL’s caterpillars and chrysalids and released a ton of butterflies, which was neat. I am planning on a butterfly post this week so I will tell you all about it then. Otherwise, nothing real exciting to report over here.

Read Last Week:

I finished up Harvesting Hope and I loved it! The characters are so real and believable, like real people you would know in your own community. I think Lisa has a real gift for creating characters, for dialogue, and for humor. This book is just what I needed last week. I plan on writing book reviews this week and this one is on the list!

Reading This Week:

I had planned on reading a different book this week, but these two called to me louder. I am a huge John Lewis-Stempel fan and Billy got me The Running Hare for Mother’s Day, but wanted to wait until the right time to read it. And that is apparently now. The Family Plot looks so good! My mom just finished it and loved it so I am looking forward to it too.

Watching:

Since finishing up Sweet Tooth and Virgin River, we went back to Death in Paradise for a bit. We are also watching McDonald and Dodds on BritBox , and I started a rewatch of Schitt’s Creek because I love it. We had a special Saturday night movie night where we watched Jungle Cruise and ate lots of snacks. And I seriously loved the movie. It had that campy Disney feel, had action, adventure, and reminded me a bit of Indiana Jones, a series that I loved and still do. As a kid, I wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up. If I had been a kid today watching The Jungle Cruise, I would want to be Dr. Lily Houghton.

  1. I am eager to hear about your butterfly adventures. I learned this week that a couple of my fellow naturalists raise butterflies. It sounds delightful.

    Glad that Harvesting Home turned out to be such a good read for you. I look forward to seeing your review.

    I have just added Running Hare to my list of books to look for. It may be difficult to find it here at libraries, I think.

    We have no good tv choices right now. I’ll look closer at yours and see if anything looks like a good fit.

  2. Well, what a nice assortment of books! Harvesting Hope sounds like it was a fabulous read! When I was a teacher, I so enjoyed our study of butterflies – the release of our friends into nature was magical…..sigh….

  3. I’ve been wondering about The Jungle Cruise. I love the ride and the movie looked fun. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! We will definitely have to watch it! The Family Plot is on my TBR. It looks so good and I can’t wait to see your thoughts! Have a great week!
