It’s Friday, which means next to nothing to me during this weird time. It does mean that my husband will be home for the next couple of days, and that’s always rad. I kinda like that guy.
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week –
Watching: The Office! This one will take me a long while to get through as I’m watching and listening to the Office Ladies podcast at the same time. My husband and I have started the new Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix as well. Oh my word, the theme music drops me right back in time.
Cooking: We’re relying heavily on the Instant Pot because the summer heat shows no sign of going away. Whew! I made an Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken earlier this week that was fantastic. If you have any fun recipes to send my way I’d love to hear about them.
Reading: I’m currently reading both The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow, and Stamped From the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi. Stamped is going to take me a while, I can feel it. I want to be deliberate in my reading to learn (unlearn?) as much as I possibly can. It’s been great to see how many other readers are picking up this book, let’s be sure to put that new knowledge into practice.
Hoping: There are some possible exciting things in the works for me and mine. Maybe I’m superstitious, but I won’t be talking about specifics until it becomes a reality. However, I would like to ask you to throw a good thought in my direction if you are so inclined!
I hope your weekend brings you good times and great books. Cheers!

Here’s the fun thing for me: I had no idea that the new Unsolved Mysteries was coming out until about a month or so ago. But right toward the beginning of quarantine, I discovered that the old UM reruns were on Prime. I started re-watching them, and my youngest (16) was hooked from the very first show. We got halfway through season 2 before suddenly they were for pay only (Prime must have lost the license or something). We watched a few on Tubi with ads, then moved up to WI for the time being, so the old show is on hold for us. But because Laurence got a good grounding in the old Robert Stack version, he and I have been watching the new ones. (Well, he’s doing it slowly. I binged them all in an afternoon.) I’m really glad he got to experience the old ones first. They were a formative part of my adolescence and now they will be for him too!

Oh I love it! I’ve considered dipping into the old ones myself. I’m afraid that the lack of resolutions would drive me up a tree, ha! I love on the new ones how they show a misty photo of Robert Stack, awww!
This is you! Your gorgeous self. I didn’t know you were back, but am so happy that it’s true. We need to dish on books, life, everything!
It’s me! I’m back! I’m dipping my toes in, and trying to get a feel for blogging again. We DO need to dish!
