School is out. It’s a good feeling. The Girl will be taking some classes for independent study but they won’t start until after production week for Oliver. There’s volleyball camp sprinkled in there too but doable.
Summer session started at the university. It’s a much slower pace here at work than say fall or spring semester but we really don’t get a break like the professors do. I’m okay with it though. The campus is pretty empty and very pretty this time of year.
Coffee. Church. In that order.
We have to figure out drop off and pick up for volleyball camp but it will all work out. I’ve got life group on Tuesday and book club on Thursday. Production week for Oliver doesn’t start until June 11th so we’ve got a little more time to prep for that. I love it when they are actually in the theatre.
My book club pick, A Truck Full of Money was a DNF for me. It just didn’t pull me in. Right after it I picked up Go Ask Fannie which did pull me in. The review should post this week. I just started Other People’s Houses. I wasn’t all that into it at first but it’s growing on me.
Fear the Walking Dead took a break last week so I will be watching it tonight.
It’s been shared by several media sources that Andy Lincoln (Rick) from The Walking Dead will not finish out season 9. I don’t see how the show can continue without him! Do you?
Roseanne. Ugh. I kept watching the reboot because of how much I loved the old shows but this season has been so painful to watch. I tuned in, hoping to see some of what made the show popular years ago but this season has been nothing but politics on parade. And then the Tweet and the cancellation that followed. She has a lot of supporters and plenty of critics. Not sure what this will all mean since another TV personality just pulled a “Roseanne” and still has her show on the air.
I’ve been craving spaghetti and meatballs. I still haven’t figured out a good gluten-free alternative for the breadcrumbs. Sometimes I use potato flakes and sometimes toasted GF bread but the texture is off. Maybe I will make a batch and hope for the best.
Great books. This week I was surprised by two books I picked up. I figured they would be kind of light and fluffy based on their covers but they were surprisingly meaty. As they say… don’t judge a book by its cover.
On that note, what book has surprised you recently? In a good way, or bad?
