A new index arrived this week, so I’m in the thick of it. I’m also working on decluttering (slowly) and on getting ready for the start of rehearsals for the spring concert. And reading, and spinning, and knitting… whenever I can squeeze in some time!
Unfortunately I was under the weather for about half the week, but I did get some reading in. I started the week at 7 books behind for my Goodreads challenge, and now I’m only 5 books behind. But it still makes me feel pressured. I keep reminding myself that it’s just a goal, and it doesn’t matter all that much if I make it or not. What matters is whether I enjoy what I’m reading… and for the most part, I have been.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished The Last Passenger (Charles Finch; ARC), which came out on Tuesday; it was excellent, as all his books are. I also read The Bachelor (Sabrina Jeffries; ARC), and really enjoyed it. I reread Tribute by Nora Roberts, mostly because I watched the movie this week, and the book is so much better. (I reviewed it back in 2017, but I might review it again and compare the movie to the book.) Then, because I wasn’t feeling well, I decided to reread Roberts’s Three Sisters Island trilogy (for the third time): Dance Upon the Air, Heaven and Earth, and Face the Fire. And I’m still slowly working my way through Decluttering at the Speed of Life (Dana K. White.) (Click titles for Goodreads or my review.)
Listening: I had been listening to Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal, but I didn’t listen to it at all this week. Instead, I listened to the first five or six episodes of The Sheepspot Podcast, a podcast for spinners.
Watching: Picard (season 1) and Warehouse 13 (season 3.) As I mentioned above, I also watched Tribute, a TV adaptation of Nora Roberts’s novel. I really like the book, but to be honest, the movie was kind of meh.
