The History of Bees by Maja Lunde
What I did Last Week
Didn’t do too much reading last week. I did manage to finish reading The History of Bees. To see my thoughts on this one, click the link above.
Then I read Dead Ringer. This was a very quick read, as I get through it in a few hours, and overall I enjoyed it. I will be continuing on with this series soon and will be posting a full review of this book in a couple of weeks.
I was busy cleaning out my PVR this week once again. I watched more River Monsters, Deadliest Catch, and a whole ton of The Incredible Dr. Pol. For Family Movie Night we ended up watching Thunderbirds, which was alright. We also watched the 1971 version of Black Beauty, which was an okay movie, but was horribly inaccurate to the book.
It was another busy week. Just when I think I’m done doing things around the house, another dozen things pop up on my to-do list. I did manage to finish sorting through everything I had purged last month and took another load to get donated. Then I started to sell a few things here and there, so I’m slowly putting a dent in the pile. Hubby and I also rearranged the shed. We had worked on the shed not to long ago, but we didn’t get to set it up how we wanted it because rain cut us short, so now everything is stored properly and all the winter stuff is easily accessible. I gave my truck a thorough cleaning and vacuuming, I normally do this in the spring as well, but somehow missed that this year, so it was in desperate need of a cleaning. I also had to start covering the garden at night, since most nights have been dipping close to or at freezing, which means uncovering it all come morning, to allow the plants sunshine, and then covering it again at night. It’s a lot of work, but it’s allowing the beans and peas time to produce before they are killed off by the cold and from the looks of it I should be able to pick some later this week. The boy also started school last week and has really been enjoying it and really likes his teacher, so that’s always great to hear.
What I Plan To Do This Week
I will be reading Prophecy: Child of Earth this week. I started this one last week but only got about 50 pages in because I was so busy. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this story progresses and getting that much closer to moving on through the series.
I’ve still got a lot of stuff to watch on the PVR, but I’ve managed to whittle the list down to just under 100 things, so that’s progress. So this week I will be watching even more from the PVR, I’m not sure what else I will watch, will all depend on how much time I have.
I feel like it will be a busy week again. I don’t quite know what items on my to-do list that I will tackle, but it’s still fairly long. The time sensitive stuff will take priority, but the more I can get done now the better.
