Only two posts since my last week that was. My reviews have slowed down this week, the combination of a busy week with reading one of the thicker novels from my review tbr. The Wonder of Lost Causes by Nick Trout. It’s thick, but so far rather brilliant.
Speaking of busy weeks, this one was super productive and I think it’s because of today being a local public holiday (show day) out here. Waking up Monday morning and knowing I only had four working days until the weekend was a powerful motivator. Whoever came up with two day weekends back in the day didn’t really think it through…
I sent each of my kids this joke and they were unanimous in their view that in this cartoon, I am Steven, everytime! I have to agree with them…
Imagining the convenience of just popping up the road with my kids every three months for orthodontic checkups that run for 15 minutes each instead of my husband having to drive ten hours each way for those thirty minutes, whilst needing to take three days off of work to make it happen. Remote living. It has its challenges.
Last night’s Handmaid’s Tale. Hhmmm…while I enjoyed it, and cried a couple of times, I feel like we are once again descending into the classic Handmaid’s territory of circling around instead of actually progressing forwards. I thought this was the last season? Already halfway through and not much has happened in terms of dismantling the establishment or getting the hell out of Gilead. I thought (hoped) Serena might have taken a certain man up on a certain offer last night and set the ball rolling.
It’s cold again. I’m intending on spending as much of this long weekend as I can curled up on the couch reading while alternating between drinking tea and eating left over cauliflower soup. Winter bliss! Enjoy your weekend and the week ahead.
