Books: I’ve joined a book club! (Sorry family, this one is a bit closer.) So far we have read Dark Matter, which was a great thriller, quick read, and had a fun twist. We have also read All the Ugly and Beautiful Things. It was a bit of a racy topic. Not really my kind of book, but the discussion was fun. On my own time I have devoured several other books including Outlander and Call the Midwife…which leads me right into TV.
TV: I’ve watched 6 seasons of Call the Midwife. The first season was pretty true to the first book, so I didn’t read the other two books because I didn’t want to spoil the show. We have also been watching a good amount of pro disc golf on YouTube. Matt can’t wait to get back to Canada and try some new discs. In the sports realm, we also watch about one NFL football game per week, so no spoilers on Facebook please!
What’s cooking: still not much. We attended a Canadian Thanksgiving event, but there was no stuffing, so I felt that we had to have a do-over at the house…ugh the oven was working WAY to hard in this heat. I don’t think I’m going to crack out any more oven heavy meals for a while. But, I did find pumpkin and molasses in stores here, and I bought some mincemeat filling in Koh Samui, so we could have some holiday baking in the near future!
Monthly Musing: I’m predicting that the rainy season is winding down, and it is cooling off a bit, which means it time to really settle into using the balcony. I’ve got some gardening plans! If you know of any plants that grow well always, especially in shady places, comment below. (I might try my hand at planting a lemon tree, even though it will take years!)
(I’m on holidays now, but this spot can be saved for a picture of the balcony thus far.)
Matt’s Musing: “Fantasy Football…hours of time put into fantasy football. What do I have to show for it? One win.” (Out of 8 weeks so far.) “I better just stick to regular Friday Football.” (A mashup of colleagues who play soccer on Fridays)
