Thanks to Deb at Readerbuzz for hosting The Sunday Salon. Stop over there or at the Facebook Group to participate.

Week’s Highlight:

We went to Oberlin Friday to see the Art Show. The first three photos are of her work and the others are just some random pieces by her class. You may have already seen them if you follow me on Instagram.

Then on Saturday, we went to the Cleveland Zoo. I thin kit was probably nice for Amber to have a day away from campus before finals week. We really enjoyed the day. I didn’t take a bunch of photos, but this one is from the entrance to The Rainforest.


I did not get much reading time this week. In addition to visiting Amber, we’ve been working on getting the house ready for new carpet in the living room and new tile in the dining room this week.

Right now, I’m in the middle of Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson and Accessory to War by Neil deGrasse Tyson. Up next is Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien.

Last week’s posts:

Looking ahead a bit, I’ll be participating in the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon hosted at It runs June 1 – June 14. On my list is The Consuming Fire by John Scalzi, The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin and maybe Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy.


I finally started watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on Netflix when David was away on a fishing trip. I adore Phryne. I wonder if I can convince my husband to watch them with me? Do you have any other Netflix mystery series suggestions?

Looking forward to:

I have a two-day retreat for work this week. I’m not sure that I’m actually looking forward to it, but the food should be good and most of the ladies are nice.

Amber will be home for the summer next weekend. I really want her to get her driver’s license over the summer.


  • You did have a busy week…we have to change out flooring downstairs, too, and I continue to put it off. I love the Rain Forest entrance. Den watched one or two of those with me but then lost interest and went back to the History Channel.

    • Our floors should look really nice when they’re finished though. The rooms themselves are going to be about a three year project I think. The pocket doors, paint and floors this year. Furniture, new curtains, etc. have to wait a bit.
      Yeah, my only hope is that the Miss Fisher mysteries are a little less cozy than some of the others I watch.

  • My husband is a huge mystery fan, and he loves Miss Fisher. He also watches Midsommer Murders, and loves it, too.

    The icon paintings are wonderful. Such beautiful work.

    We’ve been working on our house, trying to get it ready for painting. I can’t seem to decide on what color to paint it! It feels important, because it seems unlikely I’ll ever paint it again at my age.

    • My husband’s not much of a mystery fan. He just puts up with them because i enjoy them.
      They are pretty, aren’t they?
      We went with a green simply because it’s my husband’s favorite color.
