Books Finished: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Fascinating book. Part biography and part history of cells and the science around them. Skloot knows how to write up a good story and she did it with sensitivity and heart. I'm excited to see the new miniseries about Henrietta Lacks and her cells.
Currently Reading: Everything You Never Wanted Your Kids to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid They'd Ask): The Secrets to Surviving Your Child's Sexual Development from Birth to the Teens by Justin Richardson and Mark A. Schuster, The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman, and Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Listening To: I just started Kindred by Octavia Butler and it's really good so far! Political podcasts to keep up with all the crazy. I have to take breaks, though, or insanity starts to set in....
Watching: The Golden Girls, of course, and the new season of Grace and Frankie. Girls movie night was Life. That was a fun sci-fi/horror! Good times in the theater! I also watch Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, John Oliver's show and Bill Maher's show as soon as they come out. I catch up on clips with Seth Meyer's show.
Looking Forward To: Vacation. Son is having his spring break next week and we are taking off down south to see the sights and hike! The rest of the week will be devoted to local sights like the museum and the planetarium. It's a much needed break around here.
Making: I made soda bread for St. Patrick's Day! I've been trying to cook more this week. Made some steak kebabs and some stuffed Gouda chicken this week.
