Let's open up Texas completely, shall we? And let's do it in time for spring break. Right? After all, there's the economy to consider. We only had 7,593 new cases of the virus in Texas yesterday. Texas ranks #48 out of 50 in the percentage of the population vaccinated.
I'm so frustrated with our state's elected leaders.
All the books I finished last week were 1001 Children's Books:
Stone Cold by Robert Swindells
Borka: The Adventures of a Good with No Feathers by John Burningham
Sunday's Child by Gudrun MebsMy Friend Percy's Magical Shoes by Ulf Stark
Captain Pugwash by John Ryan
It's so tense around here in my state. I'm back to reading comfort reads.
All Things Wise and Wonderful by James Herriot (Mood-Boosting Books)
The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett (Mood-Boosting Books)
The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri (Chapter-a-Day Read-Along)
Yes, and...Daily Meditations by Richard Rohr (Daily Meditation Reading)
The Makioka Sisters by Junichiko Tanizaki (Japanese Literature Challenge)
A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter (1001 Children's Books)
Tarka the Otter by Henry Williamson (1001 Children's Books)
1. My husband and I got our first vaccine a few weeks back, and we get our second vaccine next week. Euphoric.
2. We finally got around to watching Sanditon. It really wasn't my husband's cup of tea, but I thought it was fairly Jane Austen-ish. Please share suggestions for where we might go next.
3. I'm happy to be reading from the 1001 Children's Books list again. My latest read, Tarka the Otter, is tough-going, though. What a vocabulary that author uses. Shillets and holts and weir-pools and yikkering and vuz-pegs. A perfect read for a future Wondrous Words post.
