Good day and happy Saturday! Let’s dive right into this week, shall we?
Listening: My current audiobook is My Dear Hamilton: A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. I’m enjoying the historical aspects, but the romantic bits are a bit too “heaving bosoms” for my liking. I’m not too far into the book though, so I reserve the right to change my mind at any moment!
I’m currently reading Stringing Rosaries: The History, the Unforgivable, and the Healing of Northern Plains American Indian Boarding School Survivors by Denise K. Lajimodiere. I strongly recommend it. Strongly. Most of us have large gaps in our knowledge of indigenous history. This book will help remedy that.
Celebrating: Mike (the husband) turned 49 this week! He was a lad of 22 when I met him. I’m not sure how he’s this close to being 50? What magic time stream did we enter in which all the days were long, but all of the years were so damn short? It’s a mystery!
Watching: Glow Up on Netflix! It’s a British makeup competition show that’s captured my fancy. Good clean fun, you know?
Asking: Please text USPS to 50409 and they’ll contact your state representatives on your behalf with a letter urging them to save the the United States Postal Service. It’s so simple! Also, you can request a free “We Love Mail Carriers” here. I also ordered this sticker from Redbubble. I’m going to stick it on my mailbox to show my local mail carriers some love.
That’s all I’ve got, gang. I do hope you’ve had a good week. I would really love to hear about it!
