Reading… The Sound of Gravel. I think I first heard about this book on What Should I Read Next. I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it through at first. It’s a memoir about growing up in a polygamist colony in Mexico. It’s a cross between The Glass Castle and Big Love. Like The Glass Castle, I kept finding myself wanting to shake the mother. If you are really sensitive to stories of abuse, this one is not for you.
Listening to… Science Vs. I’ve been trying out a bunch of new podcasts and like this one enough that I downloaded a bunch of different episodes. In each episode, they take on a different topic and attempt to get to the bottom of it using science. It’s been going for a little over a year so there’s a lot of episodes to listen to.
Eating… Pie Junkie. BEST. PIE. EVER. My favorite up until last week was the Coconut Cream. But then I tried the Drunken Turtle. Yum! If you find yourself in Oklahoma City, you must make a trip to Pie Junkie.
Watching… Grantchester. I was so excited for Season 3 of Grantchester to begin. Unfortunately, it’s been kind of hard to watch this season. I really want Sidney and Amanda to end up together, but seeing as he’s a vicar, she’s soon to be a divorcee, and it’s set in the 50’s, I think it’s very unlikely to happen. I really should check out the books; they are very highly rated.
Wanting… an Instant Pot Decal. The other day I stumbled into an Instant Pot Decal rabbit hole. How did I not know these existed?!? I go back and forth between wanting Lionel Richie and Ryan Gosling. So funny!
