This week of meetings and horses

Gage was at horse camp this week and he loved it!  This was at the therapeutic horse farm that he took lessons from when he was younger.  He told me he missed the horses so we signed him up this week.  So glad we did.  I didn’t think he’d be interested enough for 6 hours a day but they kept the kids busy and he came home a sweaty, happy mess every day 🙂

Highlights of the week Well, I did go the the Author Alley that I mentioned last week and it made me feel good to see so many readers crowding around the 52 authors at the independent bookstore.  And on another bookish note, my book group had Christmas in July this week.  We met at a restaurant and brought the books that we’d received at out Christmas exchange.  I ended up bringing Hillbilly Elegy home in a more than fair trade.  Oh, and Jason and I snuck in a weekday date with dinner and a movie (John Wick 3).

Could’ve been better  They’ve started work on our street and it’s been disruptive to say the least.  They are starting with the cul-de-sac circle, but since we are the next driveway there are always trucks in or blocking our driveway.  And because our house wraps around the corner we have the biggest front yard on the street, which means we have the porta john, everyone’s mailboxes, all extra equipment they are not quite ready to use and currently half of the street’s trash cans in our front yard.  sigh  This may be what shows up in this section every week for a while 🙂

Reading  I finished and reviewed The Dinner List and spent time with

Airs Above the Ground Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfu…

Listening  I’ve started a few audio books but have abandoned them.

Watching on the small screen I’ve been gone most nights this week.  In addition to what I already mentioned I had the library board meeting on Monday.  I think Jason and I managed one episode of Game of Thrones and one episode of Justified.

On the big screen  Jason gets to pick our movies for a bit longer because he won our March Madness bet this year, but for some reason he chose something I wanted to see (he’s good that way).  Why do I like the John Wick movies?  I have no idea.  I spent much of the movie looking way or closing my eyes in disgust at the violence.  I love Keanu Reeves and I liked the story in the first two, but this one not so much.

So, what’s been happening in your neck of the woods?
