Since my last update:
I’m still reading Under the Dome by Stephen King. I’m close to being where I need to be to keep up with the Readalong. I’m enjoying this one. The cast of usual suspects is there for King and in some ways the characters have me trying to match them up with characters from The Stand and a few other King stories. It’s been fun to return to reading King after a long break.
I did finish By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder for the Little House Readalong. I’m not sure the readalong is still a thing but I’m continuing with the series. I checked out The Long Winter from the library and it’ll be my next treadmill book.
I haven’t picked up a new graphic novel yet. I’ve got several out from the library and need to get to them before they’re due.
On audio I finished listening to Kindness Goes Unpunished by Craig Johnson. It’s the third in the Walt Longmire series and I really enjoyed it. We’ve started watching the first season of the TV series based on these books. We’re only two episodes in but it’s very good and well done. It’s true to the characters in the book without being a direct rehash of the books.
Last week The Hubster and listened to most of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. We’ll be finishing that up this on this weekend’s driving time. It’s read by Sissy Spacek and they could not have found a better narrator for this book. She is absolutely perfect as the voice of Scout. This is the second time I’ve re-experienced this book since high school and I’m once again amazed at how good it is.
Other than books and reading:
We’re off on another weekend getaway. All seven cousins on my Mom’s side of the family are getting together for the first time in many many years. We’re in South Lake Tahoe for the weekend and I’ll hopefully have photos to share next weekend.
In the meantime here are a few photos from this past week.
I really enjoy my morning walks on the Bear Creek Trail when we're in Southern Oregon
I've always had a thing for noticing interesting shadows created by nature.
And then when I got home I had my "office assistant" who loves the printer. As soon as she hears the first click she comes running from wherever she is in the house.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
