Watching: We’ve started Utopia on Amazon Prime Video. It’s INTENSE. I’d put it in the hyper-violent horror genre? It’s definitely not for everyone.
Loving: Autumn! The leaves are changing and the temperature is dropping. It is crisp out there, y’all! If there is a book reading season this is it. Enjoy it! Light some candles, bake something, and do a lot of cuddling.
Sharing: Banned Books Week starts tomorrow! Click this link to get involved.
Now, tell me about your week? I’d love to hear what you’re up to.
Hello, welcome, and happy Friday! It’s time for my weekly wrap-up. Join me, won’t you?
Watching: I’ve been digging The Umbrella Academy and the latest season of Call the Midwife on Netflix. I’m always looking for another British show to binge, so I’ll take any recommendations you may have!
Celebrating: It was my 23rd wedding anniversary on the 13th of this month. We’ve been together for over half of my life. I wish I could tell you the secret, but I don’t think there is one. It’s work and it’s luck. It’s hilarious and it’s tragic. It’s a delicate balance that we consistently screw up. It’s magical, it’s awful, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. There’s an old Orleans song that sums it up nicely:
“We’ve been together since way back when Sometimes I never want to see you again But I want you to know, after all these years You’re still the one I want whisperin’ in my ear
You’re still the one — I want to talk to in bed Still the one — that turns my head We’re still having fun, and you’re still the one”
I just finished listening to The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein. WOW. I don’t think I can recommend it strongly enough. Get thee to a bookstore! Or a library! Or to wherever you can get your hands on this genuine, heartbreaking, hopeful, page-turner of a book.
