Week 1 in Michigan was all about taking it easy – we read, cooked, grilled, exercised, walked the dog, rode our bikes, and watched movies with my brother. It was lovely. Next week is about doing All The Things. We have a lot of fun stuff planned all over southwest Michigan, I hope the weather stays good for us!
I finished Saint Mazie this week, and now I’m reading (and greatly enjoying) Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal. I’m also still slowly making my way through Anna Karenina and am a bit surprised by how much I love it. My friend and I are doing a readalong together, and we’ve spaced out the schedule so that we still have time to read other books. We just finished part 2, so we’re about 25% through. We’ll finish by the end of the summer.
We started watching Rob Delaney & Sharon Horgan’s new series on Amazon, Catastrophe. It’s so good! Rob Delaney is one of my favorite comedians, and I’m really happy this series is having so much success. I’m new to Sharon Horgan, but she’s so awesome too. I highly recommend checking it out.
I’m listening to the final novel in the eight book Anne of Green Gables series, Rilla of Ingleside. This one is a bit more poignant than the others as it’s set at the start of WWI, and the young men of Prince Edward Island are heading off to fight for Britain in Europe.
- I’ve written before about how much I enjoyed Dan Harris’s book 10% Happier, and he narrates this great little two minute video that explains meditation: why and how do do it. If you’re not sold yet, there are cute animated mice in it.
- I love this Humans of New York that makes an important point about Conservation.
- Next up on my To Bake List: these incredible looking Milk Chocolate Cookies and Cream cookies from Joy the Baker.
How was your week, friends?
