Friday and Saturday were inclement here on the coast. We did get a walk in fairly early Saturday morning but then the rest of the day it poured. However, we did want to get out a bit (Tim is very busy getting ready for his dissertation defense--a week from tomorrow!) and visited two craft/junque fairs in Pacific City.
The first one was at the Community Center, and had a few tables where Tim unearthed a few kitchen things we could use here. And then we saw these cards:
I sense a theme
Given it was so inclement, I mostly hung out on the couch and read and knit. I did finish the Kimono Moon Shawl, which I'll show you on another day. The first book I finished was an Elin Hildebrand book "Winter in Paradise". I don't know what it is about her stories, except that they are about regular people dealing with stuff, in lovely places. They always keep me engaged although part of me thinks I'm wasting my time by not reading 'good' literature. But whatever.
Here comes the theme! Now I'm reading a new book called "The Farm" which is a 'satire' about surrogacy (basically, it is about what happens at a 'resort' where highly paid surrogates go to be pregnant). It is pretty good with interesting characters. Then last night we watched a Netflix movie called "Private Life" which is also good. It has Paul Giamatti in it as a husband in a couple that can't get pregnant. It is pretty sad as well so you need to be in a good place to watch it. We had to watch an episode of 'Love it Or List it' as a 'palate cleanser' after it.
It sticks with you.
