Last week was very full! My kiddo had a tooth pulled Monday, we played catch up in school everyday after, and for fun, I threw in a snow day, complete with playing outside, cocoa, reading snowy day books.. all kinds of good stuff.

Read Last Week:

So, I absolutely LOVED this book! I love all things faerie and faerie related and always have. I checked this out from the library but I am 100% buying it for myself.

Reading This Week:

By the time this posts, I should have started Shores of Mercy already (I am writing this Saturday afternoon). I always enjoy the books in this series and I anticipate that this one will not be different. I am also planning on reading A Woman in the Polar Night – partly because I feel like I am in a polar tundra right now.

What Wyatt’s Reading – January

Homeschool Journey: Happy Little Trees

Tuesday Morning Coffee Catch Up


This past week we watched All Creatures Great and Small, which is one of my favorite shows. I love everything about it. And I decided I want to dress like Helen. Warm woolly knits in jeweled colors, corduroys and overalls, her hair always looks so pretty… hmm.

We also watched and finished Shetland (not crazy about that ending!), and watched a few episodes of Miss Scarlet and the Duke, where I get quite distracted by her tiny hat and how it perches on her head. I also get a bit distracted by Duke but for different reasons.

We watched two movies this weekend! On Friday, we watched The Lost City with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum and Saturday we watched Love and Monsters. I have a weakness for all movies that are “adventuring in the jungle in search of something”. I love them all, whether serious or silly. This one was very silly and Billy and I were cracking up. Love and Monsters was also very good, although I was very tense in a few parts!

And that is about it from our little burrow! Hope all is well in your world!

    1. Your post cracked me up! When you mentioned how you were distracted about the hat in Miss Scarlet and the Duke I laughed out loud. Then I googled it so I could see photos. I totally get why you are distracted by that hat. The Duke is dishy!

      Also googled All Creatures to see what Helen is wearing and yes, I agree! I have only read and watched the original show. We named our son Tristan after the character. He wa sthe only one in school with that name back in the 1990’s.

      1. Lol!!! I have so many questions! Like I know it is pinned on, but where? And how? And when she takes it off it just comes off so smoothly, and there are no bits of hair that come loose. And yes, the Duke is certainly dishy.

        I love her outfits!! I loved the books and the original show too, and now I love this version. That is so cool that you named your son after Tristan!


      1. Tristan was about 5 years old when smeone at work asked me if we named him after the Legends of the Fall character. I just said yes, we weren’t sure what name we wanted we got around to it aftfer he was in Kindergarten, LOL.

        You should try pinning a hat on and see what happens when you take it off! But you know she has people on set to smooth her hair. Oh well, just stare at the Duke 🙂

    The Lost City was ridiculous but I really enjoyed it! It was the kind of light-hearted, silly, romp that I needed at the time. 🙂

    I keep seeing the Encyclopedia of Fairies around so I may have to check that one out… Have a good week!

    I put a hold on the Heather Fawcett book at the library. That sounds fun! I should get it just in time for the Spring Equinox which might be a good time to read a story about fairies.

    1. It was…an event! He did pretty good all things considered. Poor kiddo. He had some tears for a few minutes but by the time we made the ten minute drive back home he was happy again.

      It was a great day! I felt like even though he is homeschooled he should have a snow day! Lol. Aww I could see how that would be a bummer as a kid!


  3. I wanted to see a rom-com so much that I went to the movies to see Lost City. It was pretty much what I hoped for.

    Glad to see how much you liked Encyclopaedia of Faeries (boy, that’s hard to spell!)

    I’m looking forward to watching more of All Creatures Great and Small and Miss Scarlet and the Duke.

  4. Polar Night does look appropriate. It’s like a blizzard here! We went to go ut last night and had to come back- the roads were alomost impassable. I hope it’s not as bad over there in your neck of the woods…

    Oh no about Shetland! I have to find out where I left off. S2 or S3. I did just binge The rig on Amazon and that’s pretty great.

  5. I loved reading the books by James Herriott so I really need to look into this series. We are watching My Life is Murder with Lucy Lawless. Nice short episodes! This duke series sounds like another must watch!

    I’m reading A Haunted History of Invisible Women. It’s not quite what I thought it would be, but it’s still good. I think you recommended it!

    Have a wonderful week! I’m thinking a trip to the Henry Ford Museum is a good idea…any tips!

    1. I loved the James Herriot books too. And the old show. Oo I want to see My Life is Murder! I am glad to hear it is good.

      I did! I hope you like it! I thought it was really interesting.

      And yes! They have a Scooby Doo exhibit opening on February 12th – I have it in my planner because I was a huge Scooby fan! The Village is closed until mid-April so if you wanted to wait until spring you could do the museum and village? Unless you wanted a winter trip. I think I saw that there are overnight packages being advertised on the museum website. I don’t know anything about that hotel, unfortunately. I could drive by it though lol. Anyway, if you want to email me –


  6. Oh, I know just what you mean about Helen, her clothes and such. And her hair — I love that, too! Adore that show — the one with Siegfried and the horse was my favorite. Did you see the two articles about 1) horse training for the show and 2) Sam West on Siegfried’s character? Both great — I can send you links if you didn’t see them. For whatever reason I just can’t get into Miss Scarlet and I don’t know why — I like the period and it’s Brit. Go figure. I bet you are ahead of me on Shetland! Must catch up!
