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.

Let’s call this one the Relentless Bi-Weekly since I skipped last week, if that’s okay with you? Loving: FALL WEATHER! I’m not thrilled that we went from 85 to 45, but I’m loving these crisp mornings in Wisconsin. I want to go to a pumpkin patch. I want to drink hot apple cider. I want … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Sept. 11, 2020
Another month is ending. Goodbye August, you were another weird month in a very strange year. I do believe I’ve run out of ways to describe the times we’re living in. Unprecedented doesn’t cover it. I would like to go back to PRECEDENTED times, thank you (as far as pandemics go that is). Until that … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up – August 2020
It’s time for another weekly round-up here on the blog. Ready? Let’s go! Celebrating: Today is my paternal grandma’s 85th birthday! Happy birthday, Granny!

Avery Reviews – If My Body Could Speak by Blythe Baird Where do I even begin!? I can distinctly remember the first time I stumbled across Blythe’s poetry. Sitting on my bed back at my childhood home, probably at some ungodly hour, and down a rabbit hole of Button Poetry videos on YouTube. “The Kindest … Continue reading Women Loving Women Wednesday
My Hands I’d like to talk to you today about my hands. My silly, curved, chubby little hands. When I was born both of my pinkies were crooked. The doctor told my parents that they would straighten out as I grew up. The doctor was wrong. As it turns out, I have a form of … Continue reading Get to Know Me Monday – No. 3
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 … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Aug. 22, 2020
Hello, beautiful bookish people! It’s a sunny Friday morning here in northwest Wisconsin. It’s going to be yet another hot & humid day. You’d think one would get used to it. You’d be wrong. This gal is firmly in perimenopause, and she isn’t amused. The world swirls in continued chaos, due in part to the … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Aug. 14, 2020
Distractions! Ah yes, distractions. The bane of the reader. The enemy of the bibliophile. The arch-nemesis of the bookworm! Finding time to read can be challenging. Staying focused on a book in this digital era can be nigh impossible. When I was a youngster the internet didn’t exist. Smartphones? Please. I don’t think we owned … Continue reading Get to Know Me Monday – No. 2
Can someone tell me how it’s already 8 days into August when May was only 2 weeks ago? I know I’m not the only one experiencing these weird time jumps, but it’s disconcerting isn’t it? Here’s what I’ve been up to this week… Posting: I shared the first post of a new series titled Get … Continue reading The Relentless Weekly – Aug. 08, 2020
