Well, I finally got the index finished and turned in. I have barely done anything else in weeks… although I did manage to read a lot this week, mostly because I wasn’t sleeping well. So I’m taking this week off to relax. I spent most of yesterday reading, napping, or spinning; it was heavenly! And the weather was gorgeous, too. If it’s still nice this afternoon, I may spin outside on the porch for a bit. I have also promised to cut Mr. Bookwyrm’s hair. I also have some work to do for my Spinners and Weavers Guild (of which I am currently one of the officers.)

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished rereading Pirate King (Laurie R. King) for my Mary Russell series reread. I read The Grendel Affair by Lisa Shearin. But I was feeling so stressed out from work that I wasn’t sleeping well, so I decided to reread my favorite books from Mary Balogh’s Survivors Club series: The Arrangement; The Escape; Only Enchanting; Only A Promise, and Only Beloved. There are two others in the series, but neither was calling to me right now; maybe I’ll go back and reread them later. (The links to the Survivor’s Club titles are to my reviews, except the last one, which apparently I never reviewed when I first read it. Maybe I’ll write a review for it this week.)
I’ll get back to Sorcerer to the Crown at some point, maybe even this week.
Listening to: A Grave Matter, by Anna Lee Huber.
podcasts: Smart Bitches, Trashy Podcast
Watching: We have been rewatching Planet Earth (a documentary series from almost 15 years ago); I needed something undemanding and easy to stop in mid-episode, so I could get back to work after dinner. Now that the index is done, we’ll finish up Planet Earth before moving on to something else.
