The Girl has been in Hawaii all week with her choir and I have been a lady of leisure. No frantic trips back and forth across town. No worrying about what to make for dinner. No packing lunches, last minute laundry requests, or checking her volleyball bag to make sure that she does in fact have her knee pads and her dance shoes for later.
But, I miss her. I go into her room now and then and breathe in the cloud of VS Pink body spray she left behind. The Otter Pup gets asphyxiated if she stays in there too long.
Just sitting here gazing at my bookshelf that needs to be organized.
I somehow managed to book two appointments this week. One trip to the orthodontist and a sports physical for The Girl so she can sign up for volleyball summer camp.
I read and reviewed Hillbilly Elegy. What a book. My club had plenty to say about it. It’s a great book to discuss.
I am finishing up The Music Shop. What a sweet read. Rachel Joyce also wrote The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry which I loved so I was excited to finally pick this one up. My review should post this week.
We saw A Quiet Place this weekend. So much suspense! It’s fun to see these kinds of movies in a full theatre.
I gave the Roseanne re-boot another try the other day. This week’s episode was slightly better but not great. It’s disappointing.
The Walking Dead has two more episodes and that’s it for the season. Hard to believe it went by so fast. It’s getting good again but I still question some of the choices being made.
I haven’t cooked a thing but I am craving seafood and steak.
Music. As I’ve been reading The Music Shop, I’ve been adding all of the songs mentioned to a playlist I created on Spotify. Do you ever do this? As a whole, it’s a ragtag collection of songs but I love to listen to the song as the main character talks about it. I do this for Murakami books too because he always references music in his novels.
That’s it from me. What is new with you?
