The weather has turned cold again. My poor crocuses are very confused. They bloomed, and now they’re nearly freezing. My friend V came over on Thursday for tea and spinning (wool), which was lovely. Mr. Bookwyrm and I went out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. Also, we are watching Picard and loving it!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread The Moving Finger by Agatha Christie, and Wildfire at Midnight by Mary Stewart. I’m about halfway through The Last Passenger (Charles Finch; ARC.) And I’m slowly working my way through Decluttering at the Speed of Life (Dana K. White), and starting to put some of the principles into action around the house. (Click titles for Goodreads.)
Listening: I’m listening to Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal. Or rather, I should be, but instead I’ve been listening to The Sheepspot podcast, and to Steeleye Span (a British folk-rock band from my youth) on Pandora.
Watching: As I mentioned above, we started watching Picard this week. I also watched another Miss Marple mystery, The Moving Finger. (Then I decided to reread the book, to compare them. Surprisingly, I like the TV adaptation better — and that’s not something you’ll hear me say very often!)

Purchased (Kindle, print, or audio)
The Voyage of the Golden Rule (Kindle) is a reissue of a 1959 book about four men, including my father, who planned to sail into the Eniwetok Proving Grounds to protest US nuclear weapons testing there. They made it as far as Hawaii, where they were arrested and jailed for several months before being released. While in Hawaii before their sentencing, their conversations with the Reynolds family (who were moored nearby) inspired the family to complete the voyage aboard their own boat, Phoenix of Hiroshima.
