This year, we splurged on tickets to the 2019-2020 season of Broadway musicals in Richmond. To be honest, we did it mostly so we could see Hamilton in November, but we are excited about the other shows as well. Tuesday night, we drove down to Richmond, had dinner in a little cafe, and saw the first of the season’s touring shows, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was a fun evening.
I’m starting to get the hang of WordPress’s “Gutenberg” block editor, thanks to some helpful fellow bloggers. A special shout-out to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer, who gave me several good tips and pointed me toward a few useful plugins. This post was composed in the “classic editor”, but yesterday’s News & Notes is was done in Gutenberg, as was my WIP Wedneday post. I’ve still got some glitches to work out, but I’m getting there. The worst problem currently is that my posts aren’t posting when they are scheduled. It’s probably a cron problem, according to Google. As soon as I get time, I’ll call my webhost’s tech support and get help sorting it out.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread The Liar, one of my favorite Nora Roberts books, then finished The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins (ARC.) Now I’m rereading Whiskey Beach, another Nora Roberts novel.
Listening to: A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan. So far I’m enjoying it.
Watching: As I said above, we went to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the Broadway musical) on Tuesday. Other than that, we’ve been watching some of the “appendices” that came with our extended editions of the Hobbit movies — extra material, mostly “making of” stuff. It’s interesting to see how movies are made, particularly with my theater background.

I don’t think I bought a single Kindle book this week. How did I manage that?!
