Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

1. Sawyer and I drove out to this place called Cabazon, close to Palm Springs, the other day to see these huge dinosaurs painted for Valentines Day, plus a little outside dinosaur walk-through experience. It was so silly and touristy, but he LOVED it and we were able to go after work and be home in time for dinner. It was a good way to start off February. 

2. I have go to get my passwords under control- I have so many variations and I don't keep track of them (they're all just stored in the cloud or on my laptop). The other day I had an Instagram issue and for approximately 93 heart-stopping moments, I thought I lost everything in my account. Maybe this should be one of my March goals.

3. My son is 200% obsessed with Dog Man right now, and my mom made the comment that she should read one. Guess who received Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties yesterday and is expected to read for a book club discussion asap? Considering Sawyer can talk endlessly on the topic I think I'll be able to set the two of them up in his room for an hour and go get things done. 

4. I am off starting on Saturday for ten days, since our district takes some time off for the two President's Days. I am SO excited. I am planning on being mostly caught up, besides a set up timed writes, so I can take it relatively easy work-wise. Sawyer still has school for part of time time, which would be far better if he was actually there in person (our county has been seeing a huge downward trend in numbers lately, so hopefully the little kids can safely start back in a month or two... when the time come he is super ready with his Harry Potter backpack, haha).

5. One of my goals for the month is to "go" to a reading/event. I am really excited about Brandon Hobsons' new book, The Removed, and I saw that he's doing a reading through PEN with Rebecca Makkai, who I adore. It isn't free, but for $12 I know I'll show up. I have been feeling a little uninspired lately, so I'm hoping this will be good.

6. In 2019 I stared a symbol-per-book embroidery hoop and failed to finish it- I think I came  up like 10 books short at the end. You have no idea how much that bugs me! I didn't even attempt 2020, but I want to start it up (let's be real, the completion-ist in me is also contemplating finishing 2019 and 2020, too). I have a new design plan that I think will look more organized. 

7. Two bookish sites I'm obsessed with right now- NPR's Book Concierge and the Brooklyn bookstore Books are Magic (they have great recommendations). 


  1. Passwords are definitely my frustration, too; I finally started keeping track of them on my computer, in a hidden spot.

    I like the sound of those painted dinosaurs!


  2. You need personal informations from companies,family and friends that will better your life and you need easy access without them noticing just contact james or you’re financially unstable or you have a bad credit score, he will solve that without stress,he and his team can clear criminal records without leaving a trace and can also anonymously credit your empty credit cards with funds you need,all these are not done free obviously but I like working with James and his team cause they keep you updated on every step taken in order to achieve the goal and they also deliver on time,I tested and confirmed this I’m still happy on how my life is improving after my encounter with him ,you can send a mail to
