Week-in-review-- January 16, 2018

We got the sickness once again in our house so I had a lot more down time. And I got quite a few books finished, which was so great. I haven't read a lot in a big chunk like that for awhile and it's something I need to do more of.

This weekend we watched movies like Space Camp and Wreck it Ralph and Coco, ate lots of popcorn and ice cream and finally ordered new blinds for our windows in the living room and kitchen! Yes!

We also watched a documentary from 2013 The March about the 1963 March on Washington. G learned some new things and we had a great discussion.

Books Finished:

The Power by Naomi Alderman, Obama: An Intimate Portrait: The Historic Presidency in Photographs by Pete Souza, One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia, Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zones by Richard Lloyd Parry (best book I've read in a long time!), Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini, and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I finished up a lot this week and read a couple of favorites. I need more weeks like this without the illness!

Currently Reading:

The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life that Matters by Emily Esfahani Smith, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte, The Unwomanly Face of War: An Oral History of Women in World War II by Svetlana Alexievich, and Wonder by R.J. Palacio (reading with G before bed).

Listening To:

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I love listening to this one. I should finish this week!

Catching up on More Perfect, such an amazing podcast on the Supreme Court.

Watching:

The Voyeur, a documentary on Netflix. Black Mirror and The End of the F*cking World, all on Netflix.

Making:

Tacos and hoping to get started on making things in my InstantPot. I didn't realize how much of a learning curve and how intimidating this pressure cooker is!

Looking forward to:

Getting over illnesses and movie and wine night on Friday with a friend I haven't seen in awhile!

Pics from the week:

We didn't get out much this week so the only pic I have is of Shadow basking in the sun and loving our new furniture arrangement where she gets the sunbeams from the now open window!
