We are another week closer to fall! Everyday I find myself more and more ready for autumn. Be prepared for lots of autumnal love here very soon. Lol.

Until then though, we are enjoying what is left of summer, with lazy mornings and no agenda or schedule to follow other than Wyatt’s appointments. Last night my brother Devin and his family came over for dinner and it was so nice to hang out with them. It’s been a few weeks for some reason, and it was good to reconnect. I think that is one thing about summer – everyone is busy like the bees that at work in the gardens that sometimes we don’t connect with our families and friends like we do when the weather forces us to slow down. I snapped this photo of Wyatt and my brother, niece and sister-in-law, and I love everything about it; the colors, the chaos, the curtain dangerously close to falling down, the patch on my couch where I was testing a project idea then left it, the energy, and especially the people.

Read Last Week:

So I mentioned last week that I love Barbara Michaels but hadn’t read this book in a very long time. Well, I think I know why! I am used to a level of old fashioned ideas in her books, as they were written in another time, but this one had just a lot of ugly words and ideas that were pretty problematic and I really couldn’t finish it. I at least had my Nature Based Therapies book to read and enjoy. I am definitely buying a copy of this book for our own home library; I checked this out from a university library using our library’s inter-library loan system.

Reading This Week:

Oo I am so excited!! I love Sarah Addison Allen! Now, to charge my Kindle….

Posted Last Week:

Classic Movie Impressions: His Girl Friday

The Wednesday Hodgepodge

Tuesday Morning Coffee Catch Up

Watching and Listening:

We are watching the new season of Shakespeare and Hathaway on BritBox, and we also threw a few episodes of Murdoch in there too.

As for listening, I’ve been listening to a lot of different stuff, mainly the 70s Classic Folk playlist on Amazon Music. We also have been listening to Rubber Band Man in the morning, because it just is a good wake up song sometimes. Lol.

I didn’t listen to many podcasts this week, which is weird for me. I’ve been searching for some new ones and haven’t landed on any yet.

And that is about it from around here! I hope you all are well and good!

  1. What a great photo – moments like that may be “every day” but are also so special! What a shame about the Barbara Michael’s book – so many things have not aged well, when we watch re-runs of sitcoms we loved as children we end up cringing at the sexism, racism, homophobia etc that was considered ok then.

    I love the look of Other Birds – I’m hoping it’s a winner for you. Happy reading.

  2. I started listening to the podcast Calm It Down after a mention by my blogging friend Bryan. It’s lovely.

    I didn’t realize that the Other Birds author also write Garden Spells. Which I never read, but I’ve always intended on reading…I think I actually have a copy around here somewhere.

    I really like that nature book, but it’s not available anywhere near me, so I may have to resort to an inter-library loan.

  3. I remember you talking about Barbara Michaels before and I think I will probably like her books as well. Sorry Prince of Darkness didn’t work for you. I do love the cover with the cat though!

    Love that photo. A picture really can paint a thousand words.

    Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love photos that seem to capture so much more than the moment… perfect shot! I’m looking forward to fall, too. We’ll probably stay up here a little later than usual so I can enjoy it this year! Have a good week, Erin.

  5. That photo is so perfectly wonderful…I hope you print it and have it around. I just finished The Nature of Witches and keep thinking about how relevant it is to the world today. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if witches could help fix the world’s ecological disasters? You know, I don’t listen to podcasts, but I do watch lots of YouTube. I’ve been following a couple of guys who are building a geodesic dome off the grid in Nova Scotia. It’s fascinating to see what they’ve accomplished as well as what they’ve come up against!

    I hope you have a fabulous week (and I’m all about the fall, too)!

    1. Thanks Marsha!

      It would be awesome if the climate change problems and ecological disasters could be taken care of by witches.

      Oh that sounds really cool! There is a geodesic dome, the Dymaxion House, inside of The Henry Ford Museum. I love walking through it, it is really neat. It makes me want to live in one!

  6. I think I’ll pass on that Barbara Michaels! I don’t mind some datedness but that sounds a bit much and I’m guessing it wasn’t a favorite when I read it years ago because I tended to hunt down copies of the ones I loved. I can’t wait to see what you think of the Sarah Addison Allen. It’s on my TBR. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!
