This Week – Nature

Gage spent the week at a nature camp with a friend this week and had a great time. The Nature Center of Shaker Lakes is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Cleveland, even having made a half hearted attempt for us to move there a few years ago. It didn’t happen, but I loved that after dropping Gage off at camp I could walk and enjoy the neighborhood once again.

I visited two independent bookstores for the Zibby Books 22in22 challenge to visit and log 22 bookstore trips this year. Loganberry Books in Cleveland Heights and Appletree Books in Cleveland were visits 6 & 7. It’s never too late to sign up. There are prizes 🙂

What I read

I shared my thoughts about both here.

I’ve finished 161 books so far this year.

On the Screen

We finished season one of the comedy show Ghosts, so much fun. And we finished part one of season four of Stranger Things. So looking forward to the conclusion next month.

We also watched the Netflix movie The Wrath of God, an adaptation of the book The Book of Murder. Jason thought the psychological thriller was boring, but I really liked it.

Puzzle finished (with a bonus Sammi)

Plans for the weekend

We’re going to the toy store today to pick up a game and for Gage to spend some of his money. Tomorrow we’ll serve Jason breakfast in bed (he’s requested waffles) and go over to my parent’s for a bit to mark the day. What do you have planned this Father’s Day weekend? Or the long weekend if you also get Juneteenth off on Monday?

    Love that New Yorker puzzle!

    I’m not participating in the challenge, but I’m happy to say that I’ve visited three indie bookstores in the past couple of months. We’re heading out on another road trip soon, so I’ll have to Google bookstores and make a few stops to support them, even though I don’t need any more books!

    Have a great weekend. The sun finally came out, so I’ll probably get outside and do some yardwork later this afternoon.

    New Yorker covers are a real cultural and historical phenomenon! I’ve seen so many that are (one way or another) real icons of the last 100 years. What a fun puzzle! Your cat must be very intellectual.

      She’s the smart one of the two for sure, lol. New Yorker puzzles are my favorite. I also had a box of 100 New Yorker cover postcards and loved sending them out. I need to get another box!

    I like that puzzle! Just like a cat to sit on it, lol. I could never read a book without one furry interuption back when we had cats. 🙂

    Sounds like you had a great time. The 22 challenge sounds fun.

    We have had 3 father’s day events this year – Thursday with my partner’s family, Saturday with mine and then today for my partner 🤣

    Have a great weekend and week ahead!

    I clicked through your link to see what you thought of the Nesbo book. I have The Bat on my shelves and it’s been there for years. I’ve ready 5 others of his books and liked them, yet The Bat sits on the shelf. Maybe this is a nudge to move it along?!

    I love the idea behind the 22in22 Challenge. I visited an indie bookstore in Helena, Montana this week, and I hope to visit one more this week.

    Our naturalist group sponsors a nature camp here that is very popular. I’m sure Gage had a fantastic time.

    Both boys look happy 🙂
    The 22in22 Challenge sounds fun but I’m not sure there are anywhere near that amount of Indie stores near me. I hope you make it to 22!
