Last Sunday, I finally tried my hand at cutting Mr. Bookwyrm’s hair. It came out pretty well. Not quite professional, but not the wild-man look he was sporting! It’s a good thing it turned out all right, because I’ll be doing it for a while. Soon it will be his turn to cut mine. Luckily for both of us, I had reverted to a simple, all-one-length cut before the pandemic, because it was easier to care for with a frozen shoulder. It should be easier to cut, too.
We have two family gatherings via Zoom this weekend. Last night was our sort-of-nephew’s birthday party (not related, but close friends of the family), and tonight my husband’s family is holding our second monthly get-together. It’s nice to be able to see people even when we’re apart, and both families think we may go on doing this even after the pandemic is over, in one form or another. Maybe not as often—people’s lives will get busier—but every few months.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read Tea & Treachery (Vicki Delany; ARC) for Monday’s blog tour post, and whipped through the recently released The Obsessions of Lord Godfrey Cavanaugh by Stephanie Laurens (meh; review coming up this week.) I finished my nighttime reread of The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey early in the week, and started rereading Fortune’s Fool by the same author. And I squeezed in a few more pages of An Extraordinary Union, which I am savoring rather than racing through. (Click titles for my review or to see the title on Goodreads.)
Listening: I have been listening to podcasts, mainly Harry Potter and the Sacred Text and Imaginary Worlds. If you haven’t encountered HP and the Sacred Text before, it’s a deep dive into the Harry Potter books, and I’ve really been enjoying it. I’ll try to write up a review at some point.
Watching: We’ve been watching the 1980s Adventures of Sherlock Holmes mysteries starring Jeremy Brett. And we continued our Marvel series rewatch with Doctor Strange and Thor: Ragnarok (which I love.)
