I am late posting this, because I worked flat out all week and weekend to finish an index project. I just turned it in this evening, and I’m really looking forward to a few days off!. Our monthly Zoom get-together with Mr. Bookwyrm’s side of the family was postponed until next Sunday, thank goodness. And all the work gave me an excuse to avoid watching the Republican convention.
A second round of Tour de Fleece started yesterday, to coincide with the actual Tour de France race (which had been postponed due to the pandemic.) I didn’t get to spin yesterday, but I plan to spin a little tonight if I can. My goal is to spin at least 15-20 minutes per day.
I am so sad about Chadwick Boseman’s death from cancer. He was a wonderful actor who brought depth, understanding, and compassion to his roles. He absolutely owned the role of T’Challa. I don’t know if they can ever do a sequel without him. It just wouldn’t be the same.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I followed up my Key Trilogy reread by rereading the Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy, also by Nora Roberts: Jewels of the Sun, Tears of the Moon, and Heart of the Sea. Last night, I started Hideaway, also by Nora Roberts, which I am enjoying — at least so far! (Some of her books get a little too dark for me.) It’s a library ebook, and I have been on the waiting list since May. I’m also reading The Language of Ghosts (Heather Fawcett; ARC), which I started a few weeks ago, set aside for a bit, and picked up again this week.
Listening to: I finished Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews, mostly whilst doing laundry or washing dishes. I haven’t decided on my next audiobook yet.
Watching: Aerial America. After a long, hard day of very detail-oriented work, I’m finding this travel-documentary series rather restful. It doesn’t require any mental or emotional investment. And it’s adding to my list of places I want to visit, whenever travel is safe again.
