Hi everyone! This past week Wyatt and I have been enjoying a break from homeschooling and maybe just all work in general and it has been awesome. Billy even took two days off work which made the time even better. We’ve been having little mini adventures, lazy days, and just plain having fun living life.
I am all over the place with reading right now. Like picking up books but skipping around from this one to that one, like a butterfly visiting flowers. I have been reading Watership Down most frequently, taking my time with my favorite book and not speeding through it, which when you have read a book this many times would be quite easy. It’s so familiar, every bit, and I want to take my time with it instead of flying through. I have a bit left in a few other books too, and I am planning on wrapping all of those up before moving on to my next read, Beauty From Ashes by Lisa Howeler! She blogs over at Boondock Ramblings about her life as a homeschool mom (her daughter and Wyatt are very close in age which is super awesome and I love sharing stories back and forth with her), avid British cozy watcher, random musings that make me laugh from her wry sense of humor that is so much like my own family’s sense of humor, and her faith. She is also a very talented writer! Her third book in the Spencer Valley Chronicles comes out on May 10th and as part of the launch team, I have a copy to read now!
I can’t say we are watching anything right now of note – we seem to have gotten sucked into Murdoch Mysteries. We are on Season 7 now and we have noticed that the show is seeming to take itself less seriously. This different sort of feel, a bit more humor, makes the show fun to watch. One of the last episodes we watched even got sort of meta on us. We have been playing hard during the day the past few weeks too, and it is pretty perfect to just unwind to at night.
We haven’t had much wake up music either! I think because we have been lazy in the mornings these days. Lol. We did have one the other day, and Wyatt was jamming out to it – Grateful Dead’s Touch of Grey, one of my faves. Apparently Wyatt is a fan as well.
I did manage to post a few times last week!
And.. that is about it from here! What is going on in your world? Reading anything good?
