With the leaves in full color and the weather surprisingly warm last week, I did a little exploring and walking around a few areas along the river. It was beautiful, and I apparently did it just in time because we lost a lot of leaves to the wind the following day.
I pressed a rose for the first time to frame for a family member. I’ve dried flowers a bunch before by hanging them, but I’m having fun trying out pressing them for a change. Hopefully more of my marigolds will bloom so I can try pressing or drying them. The ones that were out blew away in all that wind.
Last Week I Finished Reading
The Maid by Nita Prose – This murder mystery was just ok. I never really got attached to our main character, Molly, and there were too many reveals at the end, none of which felt shocking like they should have
Sheets by Brenna Thummler – I loved this so much more than I anticipated. Marj and Wendall are both so sweet as they each struggle to fit in as they navigate grief in their own ways
Universe by Nicholas Cheetham – Little facts about many of the major things in our universe, an enjoyable and interesting adventure through space
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames – I did not finish this before my library loan was due, but luckily no one else who had placed a hold on it was ready for it, so I only had to wait a couple days to check it out again
For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten – This keeps moving on and off my TBR. I’m generally a fan of fairy tale retellings, but the premise reminds me of Uprooted, which was a disappointing read for me. Hopefully I’ll like this one more, but only one way to find out
Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend – I’m only just starting this one, but I’m excited to see what’s in store for Morrigan Crow now that she has learned her talent and been invited into the Wundrous Society
