My commute was a little better this week because the backup from construction wasn’t as bad. It’s still a long drive. On Tuesday, I got to work and realized that I left my computer glasses at home so I had to fight traffic back home and then back to work. It has been a long time since I drove as much as I have been lately. I am not a fan of any of it.
On Thursday, I had a migraine come on suddenly in the middle of the workday. Looking at my computer seemed to be making it worse so I decided to take a half-day. After a couple of hours, I felt a lot better but I decided to stay off of screens for the rest of the day. It was actually kind of nice to curl up with a print book and I also did a few things in the yard.
On Saturday, we had planned to do more painting. We went to the hardware store and ended up leaving with new lights and ceiling tiles for the basement. We have a large finished area in our basement and the drop ceiling needed a lot of work. We hadn’t planned to start working on it this weekend but I am glad that we did. We are about halfway through now and plan to finish up today.
What I’m Reading
I only finished 3 books this week. Okay, it was really 2 books and a novella but I am counting it as 3. I finished The Huntress by Kate Quinn early in the week. I was so excited to be approved for the audiobook of A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow and decided to listen to it right away. It was fantastic! I loved Chasing the Boogeyman by Richard Chizmar and plan to post my review next week.
I have now read about 20% of The Origins of Iris by Beth Lewis and am looking forward to focusing on it this week. I had a really hard time settling on a new audiobook after finishing A Spindle Splintered this week but finally got hooked on Small Favor by Jim Butcher.
The Helheim Princess by Tiana Warner (NetGalley); How to Survive a Modern-Day Fairy Tale by Elle Cruz (NetGalley); Such a Pretty Smile by Kristi Demeester (NetGalley); The Introvert’s Guide to Speed Dating by Emma Hart (Audiobook – NetGalley)
