Whatnot – 09/08/21

The Otter Pup on a road trip.Good morning! This will be short and sweet as I haven’t too much to report. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! This past weekend was fun. We hit Montecito, Santa Barbara and then hit Ventura Harbor so the pup could go for a road trip too. She got her fish and chips, well, one chip. She has a sensitive stomach so we are very careful with her food. Fish, not breaded. As you can see from the photo she loves a good road trip. 

I try to buy a book on my birthday each year but this year, I didn’t. All of the books I want are coming up on my hold list and when you read a book in a couple of sittings it’s hard to justify $28-$30 for a hardcover. I shall wait, patiently. Maybe not so patiently for My Heart is a Chainsaw

I am currently reading We Were Never Here, the current Reese pick. It’s interesting. 

We Were Never Here

In other news, I’ve been watching Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. It is so good. If you have Hulu, check it out. It’s funny and charming and reminds me  of old school mysteries. 

Unfortunately my daughter is not feeling well. She just got tested so please pray, think good thoughts, etc. It’s very hard to tend to her from afar. 

Have a good rest of the week!

Whatnot – 09/01/21

Sloth hanging out at the zoo.Well, hello September. It came out of nowhere, so it seems. I do love this time of the year though. My daughter took a video of Springfield the other day and the trees are already changing color. That will be new for her. 

Isn’t my little friend to the left cute? I snapped that while my son and I visited the Dickerson Park Zoo in Missouri. My daughter was getting settled on campus so my son and I hit the zoo. It happened to be our hottest day there. Oh boy!! The  humidity was no joke. My hair looked like a Chia pet. But look at this guy! He was so chill. Just hanging out. That was a very small but nice zoo. Right afterward we hit Sonic for a Diet Vanilla Cherry Coke with Lime. My new fave drink. 

The students returned to my campus this week. I was informally told that I probably won’t be back until October. So far, the week has been busy but good. 

My review of Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty posts this Friday. It doesn’t come out until 9/14 but there was no way for me to wait. I had to read it right away. Today I am starting We Were Never Here, the current Reese pick. Anyone else reading it?

We Were Never Here

I managed to watch the premiere of American Horror Stories: Double Feature over the weekend. It is so good!! I hope the rest of the season holds. 

This weekend is my birthday weekend. I think we will hit Montecito and then Santa Barbara just to walk around, take in some good food and gaze at the ocean. That sounds good to me. 

Have a great week!!
