Week’s Highlight:

David and I went to see a local theater company do Sleepy Hollow last night. Some of the actors were really good and the scenery was simple but evoked the scenes well. The story varied a bit from Washington Irving’s story, but it was fun.

Reading:

I’m still listening to Bleak House. I’m enjoying how all the characters’ – and there are a lot of them – lives intertwine.

I only posted one review this week, Binding Dante Lovelace. It’s the second in a series that I kinda love and is perfect for fall. The main characters are demons, and while they do their jobs and put people straight on the path to Hell, they’re not really evil.

Playing:

A new to us game that we’ve been playing a lot lately is Scythe. It’s set in an alternate-1920s with a steampunk feel. It’s definitely a good addition to our collection, but I can’t quite figure out how to come out the winner yet. There are different paths to victory so to speak, but I haven’t put one together to actually get there.

Watching:

We watched Men in Black: International the other day. I though it was fun; I’m not sure why it bombed so much at the box office.

Looking forward to:

Next weekend we’re going with some friends to a Barks, Beer and BBQ fundraiser for our local animal shelter. I’m hoping it will be fun. We won’t take Scrappy with us though. There’s supposed to be a bonfire, which he hates.

  1. I planned to read Bleak House this year, but I changed my mind when I saw that there was to be a read along of The Old Curiosity Shop. I think I will try to take on Bleak House next year. Moby Dick wore me out this year.

    Scythe sounds like a fun game. It’s interesting that there are so many ways to win.

    The play looks like fun. We have started going to more plays lately. I like supporting local theater.

    Have a great week!

    1. I hope the fundraiser will be fun. I’m not a beer drinker, but my husband and our friends are. One of the sponsors is a local brewery that they haven’t gotten to try much from yet, so they’re looking forward to that.
