Thank you everyone for all of the kind comments about Wyatt’s appointments last week. It was a grueling week honestly but we made it through. For the most part they all went pretty good, but there are bits I am still processing. School was just the basics but we did read lots of Wyatt books. I however did not get a chance to read as much as I wanted but that is ok. We had a lot going on!

Read Last Week:

I finished up A Woman in the Polar Night which was a very slow read for me despite being only 200ish pages, and Ritter being an interesting narrator of her time spent in the Arctic. Wyatt and I also finished up Fantastic Mr. Fox, which he loved. All the talk about cider though made me want a glass too! I will need to pick some up in my travels this weekend.

I also finished listening to Cultish by Amanda Montell, which I listened to on Hoopla. Wow, this book was absolutely fascinating!! All about loaded language and the way that just about anything can be considered “cultish” (a constrast was made between a real cult like Jim Jones or Heavens Gate, and cultish groups like say Crossfit) and how language plays a huge part in making people act and feel a certain way. It was so interesting.

Reading This Week:

I had intended to start this last week, but it didn’t happen. It will be nice however to recover this week with this cozy fantasy.

My 14 Favorite Romantical Movies

Watching and Listening:

Last week we watched Poker Face, which is so good. I can’t say that enough. We also started The Watcher on Netflix but we didn’t care for it so we just watched two episodes and never went back. Instead we started watching the newest season of Death in Paradise, and the few new episodes of Ghosts.

In movies, last night we watched The Pine Barrens on Amazon Prime. I love documentaries that involve nature and it was so interesting to learn about this area of wilderness within the most crowded region of the most crowded state. The people in the movie were quirky and full of stories and love for the area and their heritage of being a “Piney”. I was especially interested in the cranberry farm segments, and how there used to be 40,000 in the area and now there are 35. All of this beauty and uniqueness was juxtaposed against the introduction of a pipeline through the region. It was a very compelling documentary, slow paced and filled with stories and natural wonders. And of course, the Jersey Devil.

Tonight we are watching The Last Unicorn and I am so excited. It has always been a favorite of mine.

And that is it from my corner of the mitten state! How are you all doing? What is new in your world?

  1. I have Pokerface on hold, looking forward to that one. Can’t go wrong with Roald Dahl, love his books. Tristan loved them when he was a kid and I still have some to send to him for his daughter.

  2. Polar Night does look interesting, sorry to hear it was a bit slow. PAradise sounds good too, I’ve been thinking of starting that show. anything set in the Caribbean!

    I love cranberry anything so that documentary sounds fascinating just for that alone!

    1. It was a just a bit…repetitive feeling. It was still good though.

      And I love Death in Paradise, although spoiler, they switch detectives a lot. I have adjusted through them all though.

      It was super interesting! The cranberry parts were not all that plentiful but it was still really good.


    1. I am so relieved they are done for now!

      OOo I am totally going to watch that now! Thank you for sharing! I think you would love Ritter’s book if you haven’t read it already. Although, it does get a bit “real” with hunting, etc.

      Cultish was fascinating!


  3. I hope this week is a time of refreshment for you and Wyatt. I always loved reading Roald Dahl books to my kiddos in fourth grade. I don’t know that I could pick a favorite, but The Twits would definitely be in the running! I finished my dumb book and began a new one, The Golden Couple, which seems to be off to a good start as I’m already almost halfway through it. We finished My Life is Murder so we’re watching (I’m rewatching) The Imitation Game. Mike was in the defense industry so he’s intrigued by the cryptography stuff in it.

    I’m in the mood to plant things, but I just know there’s another snowstorm out there just waiting to kill my vibe!

    Hope your week goes wonderfully!

    1. So far our week is off to a good start, with some sunny walks. I am thinking we might take a field trip to the zoo on Thursday too, since therapy is cancelled.

      Oo The Twits! I haven’t read that one but now I am adding it to the list to read with Wyatt!

      That is a good sign for a book, at least with me. I started my witch book and I am loving it. I keep trying to think of ways to sneak in some reading time. Lol.

      Ugh I know right!!!

    I am glad Wyatt’s appointments went well for the most part. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Cultish. I look forward to reading it. I think we have two more episodes of Poker Face to watch. We are really enjoying it too! I hope you have a great week!

    I’ve heard Cultish is really interesting! I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’ll have to check it out.

    We started Poker Face last week as well and are enjoying it! It’s an outlandish show, but still good. I’m sad you guys didn’t enjoy The Witcher, though. That’s one of my favorite video games! Lol But that’s ok, to each their own!

    1. Cultish was fantastic!! It was one of those books where you have to tell people what you just learned the whole time you are reading it.

      Oh we loved The Witcher!!! We did not like The Watcher, which was a show about a family who moves into a new house and learn someone is always watching them.
