Since last Sunday, I have been spending most of my time working on my syllabus for fall and writing assignments and handouts for class. Other than making peanut butter and jam sandwiches to put in the bag lunches to be distributed to two low-income trailer parks locally by a friend’s church, I didn’t even get out much.
However, I did a bit of reading:
What I finished:
Why They Can’t Write by John Warner/ Coffee Poems: Reflections on Life with Cofee, edited by Lorraine Healy/ Under My Hijab, a children’s book written by Hena Khan and illustrated by Aaliya Jaleel/ Butterfly Yellow, a YA novel by Thanhiha Lai/ and a play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide /When the Rainbow is Enuf by Ntozake Shange
What I am Continuing to Read:
Americanah by Chimananda Nzozi Adichie/ The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell/ Aftermath by Suzanne Morris, and continuing to watch episodes of the second season of Netflix’s The Outlander
Rise and Shine, a novel by Anna Quindlin.
This week ahead promises to be full with an appointment to have the car worked on early tomorrow, a foot surgeon’s appointment Tuesday and a Grand Re-Opening to celebrate the fresh paint My Better Half put on my Little Free Library (complete with free books, cookies, small prizes, and a drawing to be held for a Barnes and Noble gift card) Wednesday morning for the neighborhood.
