As a book blogger, reading feels especially good when it’s productive. But it also feels good when you just enjoy what you are reading without a thought as to when you will finish a book, or even when it will get reviewed. I say this because Dune has sent me to the sidelines with my reading productivity, but the enjoyment factor is way up. This meant no reviews this past week and that’s okay.
Almost time for me to head to student ministry. We are in a series on James and it’s so good. All about finding joy in the struggle. It’s hard to do, especially for young people but it’s an important topic to discuss.
As luck would have it, healthcare workers are striking so my medical appointments have been a challenge. I did see the specialist and the physical therapist and have started everything they recommended to me, including the use of a cane. I have tripped on the cane twice. Lordy. The cane is surprisingly helpful though.
I have book club this week and will be reading the club’s pick as soon as I get home today. Hey, at least the details of it will remain fresh in my mind.
My club’s pick is This Tender Land. After this book, I need to take some time to figure out my next read. I was approved for some really great reads lately but they don’t come out until 2022 so my dilemma is, read them now? Wait? I tend to want to read them now. Especially the new Stewart O’Nan!
We have been dipping in and out of La Brea. It is like a cross between Land of the Lost and Lost. It’s sometimes very good and sometimes a little silly. We are on episode four and not sure about it.
- As weird as it will be to not have the kids here for Thanksgiving, I am grateful that we can do whatever the heck we want. I might cook. We might go out! I’ve never done that for Thanksgiving.
- Naps. I have really mastered the cat nap.
That’s all I have. Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
