Beautiful weather this week, and we spent lots of days outside, looking at water birds at Quintana Beach County Park, looking for pollinators for the Pollinator Project, looking for butterflies for Texas Butterfly Monitoring. My husband and I (truth alert: mostly my husband) spent one day putting together a cabinet to store the books I have collected for my Little Free Library. And I read and enjoyed five good books this week including Woman in White (thank you to all who recommended it), Wonderworks, and Dictionary for a Better World.

This week has been the Los Angeles Festival of Books, the Texas Library Association Conference, and Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon. Whew! That's a lot of bookish events in one week.
Good Thing #1
We picnicked at Quintana Beach County Park with our friends.
Even masked, even socially distant, it was wonderful to see them.
Good Thing #2
Migratory birds are stopping by my house!
I was beyond excited.
L to r: Painted bunting; Scarlet tanager; Blue grosbeak.
Good Thing #3
We watched News of the World this week.
I've heard several negative reviews, but we liked it.
