Saturday in the Garden | Sleep Like No One Is Watching


The first of the seed catalogs have arrived YIPPEEEEEE! 💕 My Favorite:


Light alarm clock update (this is an alarm clock that wakes you up by slowly getting brighter over a 30  minute period):  I'm reserving judgment.  The first couple mornings this really helped me get up right when I should but since then not so much.  My brain adapts to these types of things quickly.  However, I did feel a little more alert and energetic once I was up so it may be having a positive effect even if I don't spring out of bed right on time like I'd like to.   



Nothing.  I've been obsessed with reading this week and haven't really watched any TV.


Finished Since the Last Time I Posted

  • A Plain Death (Appleseed Creek #1) by Amanda Flower:  This is an Amish, Christian Fiction, Mystery Romance. Say that 5 times fast:).  It annoyed me a lot but I also read it fast and have already borrowed and finished reading book 2. *shrugs*
  • A Plain Scandal (Appleseed Creek #2) by Amanda Flower: This improves on the first book I think and I am increasingly liking that the author gives her heroine a lot of agency and the ability to take care of herself. I was disappointed to find book 3 was checked out:(.  
  • The Old Fox Deceiv'd (Richard Jury #2) by Martha Grimes:  The second in this classic British mystery series.  Centers around interestingly name British pubs.
  • H is for Hawk by Helen McDonald: A non-fiction book, primarily memoir, about the authors training of a Goshawk for falconry in an effort to heal after her father's sudden death.  Really lovely!

Currently Reading:

  • Clean Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #1) by Ilona Andrews: The Kate Daniels series author is one of my very favoritest Urban Fantasy and this book was on sale at Audible.  I'm flying through it - so good!
  • The Case of the Left-handed Lady (Enola Holmes #2) by Nancy Springer: The second in a middle-grade series featuring Sherlock Holmes' 14 year old sister.  
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender - Smoke and Shadow by Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru:  The graphic novel continuation of my beloved Avatar The Last Airbender television series.  

Added to the TBR:

This is a list of books that I have added to my Goodreads TBR list this week.  It helps to burn the books I want to read a little more firmly into my mind, maybe get them on some other folks TBRs and gives me a chance to recognize a lot of the awesome bloggers that add stuff to my TBR!
