First, let me say that I am thinking of everyone who has been affected by the Hurricane. What a terrible situation and I am praying for everyone who was in its path.
This past week was full of work – school, housework, and all the prep needed to start painting our bedroom. How did I have so much in that room? I am flabbergasted. It was a good opportunity to reconsider it all and make choices about what is actually going back in.
We did do some good stuff too – a field trip, watched Hocus Pocus 2, a fire and adult beverages at my brothers. All in all, a pretty solid week.
Read Last Week:
Sheets – what a very different, emotional read than what I was expecting. I absolutely loved it though. I am still working on Invisible Women but it is good so far.
Reading This Week:
Winterset Hollow caught my eye a few months ago and I wrote it down to read this month, October. I am not sure about it honestly – sometimes straight horror books are too much for me these days. However, I am curious about it and I am looking forward to reading it. Hopefully in my newly finished room tonight, but we will see how far Billy and I get today.

Watching and Listening:
Billy and I never watched the LOTR show darn it. Maybe this week. We instead watched McDonald and Dodds Season 3 – wow that first episode was the best! We started the Chelsea Detective but decided we want to wait on it for winter watching. We also tried out Recipes for Love and Murder and decided we weren’t interested at this time. Maybe later. We obviously had a weird week of tv.
I spent the week catching up on the podcast Your Own Backyard with Chris Lambert. He has been covering the trial of Paul and Ruben Flores, who are being tried for the murder/disappearance of Kristen Smart in 1996. I listened to the podcast earlier, pre-trial, and it is seriously one of the best podcasts I have listened to. Lambert is an amazing investigative journalist, in my non-expert opinion, and the podcast actually helped to propel this eventual arrest and trial of the two Flores men. I am waiting for the newest installment, which covers the last week of the trial, as the closing arguments are this week. No cameras or video recordings are allowed in court due to some of the sensitive witness testimony. Anyway, I could go on and on about this case. I have lots of opinions and feelings.
And that is it from my corner of Michigan!
