Normally I’d have this post up on a Friday but, as we’ve discussed, time has no meaning. Is this Saturday? Wednesday? Blurbsday? Who cares!
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week –
Watching: We’ve (me and my husband) been watching Dead to Me on Netflix. Who doesn’t love a dark comedy? Christina Applegate is a riot in this, check it out.
Listening: I’m listening to the audio version of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar – Ortiz. What a truth punch in the face this book is. It’s making me think of my own family history of Indian Boarding Schools. It’s pissing me off and breaking my heart.
My ears are also in love with David Tennant’s podcast. I didn’t know it existed until recently, which is criminal. What a joy to hear his voice. #GiantCrushAlert
Cooking: The steamy humidity is ruining my cooking game. It’s too stinking HOT. I did brave the oven on Monday to make a birthday cake for Patrick Stewart’s 80th birthday. (I’m waving my nerd flag all over the place in this post eh?) You can see it on Twitter if you’d like! (It’s not pretty, but it was tasty. Now my husband is randomly searching for other celebrity birthdays in an effort to get me to bake again!)
Reading: I’m still slowly and mindfully reading Stamped From the Beginning. I’ve also starting dipping back into the world of NetGalley. They have audiobooks now! Isn’t that exciting? It certainly excites me as it’s the easiest way to read since my accident last year. (I’m not really allowed to talk about that, but it’s a thing.) Now, let’s hope I don’t get carried away by requesting 100 books at a time.
I hope you’re all reading wonderful things, cooking delicious meals, and treating yourselves with care. The world is hard. It does need us to be vigilant, aware, and smart, but don’t forget to breathe once in a while.
