    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I read 20 books in July, and I gave three of them five out of five stars: 1. Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert--I loved this contemporary romance set in London. It was funny and steamy (understatement), and both main characters were wonderful: Dani, a black PhD candidate and teacher and...

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I read this one earlier in the month. I read a lot of romance/chick lit, and this one was just okay for me. I really liked the two main characters, but parts of the plot and minor characters annoyed me, and I didn't care for the pacing. It ended up being a bit of a slog rather than a fun read.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    Trying to get as much out of an HBO subscription before I cancel--binged the time travel/crime procedural show from Norway, Beforeigners. I thought it was bananas, but I really enjoyed it. A lot of season one is world building and setting up the plot for season two, and the central crime doesn't...

    What does re-opening look like?

    Our diocese opened for in-person Mass last weekend (May 16) with strict guidelines. Two parishes are shutting back down for at least a week when two attendees at different Masses tested positive this week: https://tinyurl.com/ycjn4lmr Our parish is starting summer care for kids 2-12 on June...

    What does re-opening look like?

    This is in Arkansas (AR), not Alaska (AK). We had an alarming spike in cases this week. We’ve never had a shelter in place or stay home order, though he did close schools, restaurants, bars, salons, barber shops, and gyms. He issued guidelines to churches, made an effort to disable services...

    One of the issues he's having is that some of the regular organizations that help the homeless are not open. I will look for some myself--thanks. PLEASE do!

    I am trying to help a homeless man in my neighborhood get a stimulus check. He was in prison throughout 2018 and 2019 so he had no income. I signed him up as a non-filer on Sunday--his $0 return was accepted--but as of today, there has not been a change in his status--we don't have enough...

    Watched the first three episodes of Normal People on Hulu, downloaded the book, read in about 12 hours, watched the rest of the series. Shook. Dashed. Awashed in feeeeeeeelings.
