Currently reading: The Whalebone Theatre by Joanna Quinn ๐Ÿ“š

Finished reading: Chants Democratic by Sean Wilentz ๐Ÿ“šExcellent American labor history 1780-1850 book. But depressing because we’ve been fighting financial inequality with the same language for 200 years.

The Town plow truck slid into a power pole last night. Driver and truck are fine but given the number of outages due to snow in my state (NH), it may be a while before we have electricity and internet again.

Currently reading: The Galaxy, and the Ground Within (Wayfarers, #4) by Becky Chambers ๐Ÿ“š

Finished reading: Lark Ascending by Silas House ๐Ÿ“šSimilar to Station Eleven but clumsier.

Finished reading: The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik ๐Ÿ“šI found parts tedious and way too much plot was recapitulated from book 1 AND I enjoyed it. Looking forward to book 3.

Finished reading: Zorrie by Laird Hunt ๐Ÿ“šA sweet midwestern novel.

Finished reading: The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner by James Hogg ๐Ÿ“šI think whatโ€™s interesting is the perspective on religion in its time.

Finished reading: Ducks by Kate Beaton ๐Ÿ“ša wonderful graphic novel. I used to visit Cape Breton and marveled at the stories of people working in Alberta. She tells the truth.

Slow Horses poster

I watched both seasons while sick in bed with COVID two weeks ago. I rarely watch any TV so was surprised at how much I enjoyed Slow Horses. I’m looking forward to Season 3.

One more chart because to me itโ€™s interesting how clearly Heart Rate Variability shows me getting sick and then recovering.

My trackers are telling me Iโ€™m through my bout of COVID.

Day 6 of COVID

Iโ€™ve been in bed this whole time. It looks like maybe Iโ€™m done with the fever, according to Apple Watch, so maybe I can start doing a bit more. Our weather is terrible, so itโ€™s no problem to keep taking it easy.

Finished reading: An Immense World: How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us by Ed Yong ๐Ÿ“ša wonderful book, full of interesting science leavened with plenty of heart.

Finished reading: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin ๐Ÿ“šI didnโ€™t love it. Seemed overly full of itself.
