What I Read in December

I was planning on including this in my January State of the Union post but it was all just becoming too long, so I may play it by ear each month, if I read a lot it gets it's own post, if I don't read a lot then maybe it may get put in the … Continue reading What I Read in December

Obsessions: July 7th

For only the 2nd time ever I missed my normal Saturday posting of my Obsessions post. The first was because I was moving halfway across the country and hadn't fully figured out the schedule post function, this time is because I have been throwing up violently for most of the weekend and could barely even … Continue reading Obsessions: July 7th

What I Read in July

July was one of the reading months where I tried to make myself read some books that I had purchased, somewhat on a whim, simply out of joy of being in a bookstore and most of them were mediocre at best. I also kind of think that I was trying to make myself read and … Continue reading What I Read in July

Obsessions: July 24

I'm down in Thunder Bay for the weekend and it's fully hitting me how much I miss city life. Walking every where, working in coffee shops, getting take out and walking down to the water to eat, BOOKSTORES, actually being able to get everything on your shopping list. I'm not hating living in Sioux Lookout, … Continue reading Obsessions: July 24

Mid-Week Procrastination

So this is super late - oops, but I totally forgot that today was Wednesday and then I got a last minute appointment to have my summer tires put on and drove my car out there and then decided to walk back. The walk took two hours. It started raining. I got completely soaked. And … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination

What I Read in May

May was a month of re-reading, nothing in my to-be-read pile was inspiring me or wanting to be read. There's also something so comforting about reading a book that you are familiar with, revisiting a story you know the ending to. It's probably something to similar to how people on the internet say that psychologists … Continue reading What I Read in May

What I read in April

I hit a reading rut in April. I think it was partly because I was trying to read (a really good) non-fiction book and I'm just slower at reading non-fiction (it took me 6 weeks to read Barack Obama's tome of a book). But I also just wasn't in any kind of mood to read, … Continue reading What I read in April

Quarantine Round 4 Activities

Well Ontario. We're nearly a week in to Quarantine/Lock-down/Stay-at-home/Flatten the curve number 4 here. And given that this is probably the worst wave that we have seen yet that when this stay-at-home order expires it will not be releasing us straight into normal pre-COVID life. So I need some things to do. In the past … Continue reading Quarantine Round 4 Activities

What I read in March

I hadn't thought that I had read that much in March, what with the new job and the big move and all. But I read 4 books! Only three are pictured in the stack because one was my parents and I obviously didn't want to take it with me. That's also why Louise Penny is … Continue reading What I read in March

Mid-Week Procrastination

I really love this desk set up from Julia Berolzheimer Image from Julia Berolzheimer on juliaberolzheimer.com Grace blogs about her last trip pre-pandemic, I love that she finally felt like she could share it. It was so close to everything shutting down in North America that it felt insensitive for her to share it previously, … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination
