I had a telemedicine appointment with one of my doctors (routine) and finished knitting my socks, but other than that I haven’t gotten much done this week… including on my current index, darn it. I may be a bit MIA this week, as I will have to work pretty hard to catch up.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished rereading Once a Soldier by Mary Jo Putney (reviewed back in 2016) and started a binge reread of the Mrs. Pollifax “cozy spy-mystery” series by Dorothy Gilman. So far, I’ve reread The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax, The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax, A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax, Mrs. Pollifax on Safari, and Mrs. Pollifax on the China Station. They have been quite comforting, both because I know them so well, and because Mrs. Pollifax always survives and triumphs over difficult situations through her own determination, endurance, and creativity, aided by the goodness of others. They are also quick and light, so they’ve been helping me break out of a bit of a reading slump (and helping me catch up on my Goodreads Challenge a little, although I am still behind.)
The Dewey 24-Hour Readathon was on Saturday. I participated, but only a little, in between working (and sleeping in.) I read The Moon-Spinners by Mary Stewart, but I didn’t finish it.

Listening: I am listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Watching: We watched Men in Black: International, which was a lot of fun. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson have really good chemistry. We also finished season 3 of Warehouse 13, and we’ve been watching Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah’s comedy/talk shows, which they are producing from home. Previous to this week, I had been watching the Lord Peter Wimsey series starring Ian Carmichael; next up is Five Red Herrings.
