The preparations for Wyatt’s birthday are in full swing! This year is another low key birthday without a big party but we are still trying to make things fun and special. We hope to go to the zoo on Saturday, and I am making his favorite, strawberry cake for Wednesday, his actual birthday. And the first of his birthday gifts has arrived! I will share more on it in a birthday post later but let me tell you, we are all enchanted.
I also picked up this “Mystery mystery bag” from the library! Our library is doing a monthly book swag bag event which is really neat! February was all about mysteries. This is what was in my book swag bag! This book sounds exactly me too. According to the blurb on Goodreads, this series is perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, Midsomer Murders, and all those British cozies. I can’t wait to start reading, eat my shortbread, and drink my hot chocolate! March’s bag is set to be fantasy themed, and I am looking forward to it already.
Read Last Week:
Sadly, I could not focus on reading at all last week. My thoughts were busy and when my thoughts are busy, so is my body. I did make a pretty good start on Within These Wicked Walls and I do hope to finish it in the next week or so.
Wyatt and I did read quite a bit of our read aloud though, Appleblossom the Possum. This book is super cute!
Reading This Week:
I was so excited when the new Rockton came in for me at the library! And of course, Now You See Them. Since this week is crazy (Wyatt has his 24 hour EEG in addition to his birthday this week), I may drop kiddo off at my mom’s Thursday, and give myself a little break!
Posted Last Week:
Billy and I finished up The Loch, All Creatures Great and Small, and Around the World in 80 Days. For being a slow start for me, I was sad when 80 Days was over! We also watched the Christmas episode of All Creatures and I cried my eyeballs out at how much I loved it. The Loch was also good – I was surprised by the ending! It was such a good crime thriller, and so many secrets fell out of this little town during this murder investigation. A little grisly, but gripping.
We also watched Kim’s Convenience, which we are loving, and then on a day when Billy had to work a million hours (it’s been a rough week of work for him) I watched almost all of the newest season of Sweet Magnolias once Wyatt fell asleep.
Our wake-up songs! Space Oddity by David Bowie, Top of the World by The Carpenters, Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder, My Girl by The Temptations – and I am forgetting one!
And that is it from our little home in the Mitten. Stay safe!
