It’s been an uneventful week. We took down the scene, Christmas tree, and decorations last weekend, and reorganized and pruned some of our other holiday stuff at the same time. (How many Easter baskets do two people really need, after all?) I ran a few errands, including donating a box full of paperbacks for the library booksale. I’m slowly beginning the work of pruning my shelves and decluttering the house.
Today I’m headed to a introductory fiber prep class about an hour from here, to learn a little about preparing fiber (sheep’s wool and angora rabbit fur) for spinning.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished Almost Just Friends by Jill Shalvis (ARC). The COYER Buddy Read readathon began last Sunday, so I read Memories and Murder (Lynn Cahoon; ARC) with Stormi of Books, Movies, Reviews, Oh My! I’m currently rereading A City of Bells for the Elizabeth Goudge Book Club readalong (reviewed back in 2015), and Decluttering at the Speed of Life (Dana K. White; library) to spur me on in my decluttering efforts. And I kind of accidentally started His Bride for the Taking, a novella by Tessa Dare. Next up for the COYER Buddy Readathon is A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Brigid Kemmerer; ARC) with Nadene of Totally Addicted to Reading. I started the ARC last year, but got sidetracked and didn’t finish it (even though I really liked it.) So I’m going to start over from the beginning. (Click titles for Goodreads or my review links.)
Listening: I finished an audiobook last week, and haven’t been able to decide which one to start next. I’m dithering between Shades of Milk and Honey, which I’ve read but want to reread before continuing the series; AND WHAT?
Watching: We finished Season 2 of Warehouse 13, and rewatched Avengers: Infinity War on Friday before watching Avengers: Endgame last night.
