This Week

Fave Pic IMG_4692 Was able to spend some time alone in the woods this week.

Highlights of the Week Gage had online Lego camp this week for 2 hours everyday this week and he really liked it.  It also gave me two hours where I wasn’t responsible for entertainment.  A win/win.  I went to my first social distanced gathering as a few of us got together outside to say goodbye to a Library Friends board member.  She was our newsletter editor so now I need to find a replacement.  And I’ve been selling books for the Friends on our FB page.  The library’s not open but since I’ve been listing online every day we’ve made some money and gotten rid of some books.  Of course, I’m running this operation out of my garage so that’s fun, lol.  All of the deliveries are contact free so it works for me.  Jason worked two days downtown this week and it feels weird.  I like having everyone home, even if I’m going a little(lot) stir crazy.  Spent a few hours in nature a few days this week and that helped.  We also had another drive by birthday parade for another friend in Gage’s class.  I’m not sure what it means that I’ve put that under highlights 🙂

On the small screen  Jason has been obsessed with season 3 of Bosch this week and we’ve watched nothing else.

Plans for the weekend I need to replenish some local Little Free Libraries with books from our Friends of the Library and I’m headed to the Cleveland Botanical Garden at noon to pick up a pack with stuff for Gage to do camp from home next week.

    Wow that puzzle looks tough. I like the tree photo, awesome they’re so tall & pretty! Yeah the Such a Fun Age novel seemed to have some plus & minuses about it. I listened to the audio of it and the characters aren’t easy. And the series Bosch is so addicting, so I can totally relate. We made it thru Season 6 I think. Enjoy your weekend.

    What a beautiful photo! I am sad we will not be able to spend time in the mountains this summer. That is great that you’ve made headway selling books for the library. A friend of mine is a Girl Scout leader for her daughter’s troop and they have set up a mobile library in their town since the library are closed. Their local news station even ran a little story on it. I am glad Gage enjoyed Lego Camp! I should look into something like that for my daughter–but she’s already not excited about having to do her dance classes by Zoom . . . I feel bad she’s on her own most days because my husband and I are working. She’s managing though. I think she’s enjoying the independence.

    I hope you have a great week.

      I like that the two camps so far have had an online component, just for a change for him. This week the botanical gardens camp is only 45 minutes online everyday and then 15-25 minutes of crafts that they sent home. At least it’s something different.

    Wow. What a challenging puzzle. I did a puzzle on the national parks, and it was so easy that I put it together in a few hours. I took it apart, and I think I’ll do it again soon. I feel like I learned a little about the national parks.

    I love how you are selling books for the library online. Our library has reopened, to a limited degree. I wonder how that is going.

    And, haha, I laughed about a drive-by birthday parade being a highlight of your week. We have our first next week, and I’ve been eagerly looking forward to it!

    Lego camp online sounds interesting and I/m passing the idea to my daughter in law for the kids. The photo of the tree is spectacular. We have been enjoying the outdoors more too.

    I quit SUCH A FUN AGE 1/4th of the way through. I just didn’t like the gratuitous sex. Ugh. It is sort of in keeping with the theme of Black Lives Matter, though, so I may have to give it a second try. My Sunday Salon post

    Sometimes those little things can be the big bright spots! That puzzle looks super hard. We’re working on one now where it’s pretty much just black and yellows. So hard!

    So glad Gage has been having fun with Legos online. Gabe has enjoyed his online camp too though a second week of it was probably too much. But what do ya do?!

    Loving your photos each week. I’ve never seen Bosch so I may have to check that one out. I just started the third season of Marcella. Hoping it’s been than the second season… Also, The Innocence Files on Netflix is phenomenal.

      We just watched the first Dead To Me tonight and I really liked it. Jason is willing to watch more too so that’s a win. This week Gage is doing a camp that is live online in the botanical gardens for 45 minutes and then crafts and activities that they sent home for 15-25 minutes, It’s short but a nice change of pace. I think next week Kiwi Crate starts their free online camp that we’ll check out. Gotta keep some variety. I feel bad for the kids who have to stay home this summer because their parents are being cautious, lol. Tomorrow I scheduled our first play date. Riding bikes in the school parking lots with a friend from school.
