After a few weeks of playing around and having fun, I spent this past week trying to catch up on work. I had so much just “house business” to do – all those fun things like cleaning, making appointments, accumulated paperwork that I needed to fill out, just all the odds and ends of living. Wyatt is now going to therapy again twice a week, and in August that bumps up to three times a week (PT, OT, and speech) and he is also taking swim lessons on Fridays. This week we both also have doctor’s appointments so this week will also be full. Then hopefully, we will have a return to our normalish schedule. I am looking forward to it!
I finished up Hotel Paradise, which was just as good as I remembered it. Martha Grimes is a beautiful writer. I also started Wildwood Whispers by Willa Reece and I am loving it! It takes me FOR-EV-ER to finish a book these days just due to life, but I read it absolutely every second I can. It is so good – full of magic and nature and community.
Watching and Listening:
Billy and I have almost finished up Stranger Things – we just have the epically long finale left. 2.5 hours! Why!? We also have been trying to catch as much of the Tour as we can. Billy has watched the Tour de France for years and years but I only started watching about 10 years ago. We usually only end up watching the highlights these days but it is still fascinating and exciting to us. I feel sort of blah about it this year, as my favorite rider Mikel Landa is not participating this time.
We also watched our classic movie suggestion from Lisa at Boondock Ramblings – The Thin Man starring William Powell and Myrna Loy. My impressions post will be up Wednesday for those who are interested!
We are listening to a lot of Kate Bush around here lately – she has experienced a resurgence thanks to Stranger Things. I somehow missed her while I was growing up in the 80s. I was too busy listening to Madonna and Michael Jackson back then I guess. I still find myself commanding my Alexa to play Lord Huron, Tom Petty, and 70s Classic Folk a lot though.
