My dad is home and seems to be doing OK, thank goodness. Thank you all for your support when he was in the hospital. We are spending a quiet Memorial Day weekend catching up on work. If it weren’t for the pandemic, this weekend would have been my college reunion. But there will be others, and I am thankful that I can be in touch with some of my friends through Facebook and email.
Tomorrow, I’ll be remembering our fallen soldiers and those who died long after the wars they fought in… especially my grandfather, my uncles, and my father-in-law.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished rereading Linnets and Valerians by Elizabeth Goudge and Mary Stewart’s The Ivy Tree. Then I went back to finish up the Hathaways series, which I was rereading a month or two ago, with Love in the Afternoon. Then I read an ARC of Who Wants to Marry a Duke by Sabrina Jeffries. (Click titles to view on Goodreads.) The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis is still on “pause”; I’m having a hard time reading contemporary fiction right now.
Listening: I am about a third of the way through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Watching: I continued watching the Lord Peter Wimsey & Harriet Vane series; I finished Strong Poison and Have His Carcase. On to Gaudy Night!
