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?
