Reading: Trying to finish up a really interesting book, "The House by the Lake" by Thomas Harding. (It first piqued my curiosity when I saw it in hardcover last year, but I waited to buy it until the paperback came out earlier this summer.) Review to come in due course. :) Organizing the schedule & volunteer discussion leaders for my D.E. Stevenson fan group's discussion of our next pick, "Five Windows," which (if everything goes according to plan) begins next week. And wondering whether I'm also going to be able to squeeze in Margaret Atwood's "Alias Grace" before the new television miniseries (adapted by Sarah Polley) begins airing later this month on CBC...! (It will be shown on Netflix in November.) I guess I could always PVR it and watch at a later date, after I've finished the book?? (Although I already have a backlog on there too...!)
Watching: On TV: I really haven't been watching much TV lately, not even Netflix. Mostly CNN/CBC News Network, and lots of tribute shows to Diana, Princess of Wales, 20 years after her death. Looking forward to the new fall season/return of old favourites! (Already bored with all the American college football on TV this weekend, lol.)
At the movies: Haven't been to many movies this summer either. The last one we went to, a few weeks ago, was "Logan Lucky," a heist movie set in West Virginia with a NASCAR twist, starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough (Elvis's granddaughter!), and Daniel Craig -- aka James Bond, albeit in a most un-Bondlike role. He's hilarious!
Eating: Not well enough lately, I think. :p Gallstones continue to give me grief, on & off. :( We noticed that split pea soup had returned to the menu at the takeout soup counter at the supermarket where we shop & often go for lunch (they have great pizza, sandwiches, & other stuff as well as a wide variety of soups). A sure sign that fall is upon us!
Wearing: Still in T-shirts/tank tops, capris & sandals (and shorts, around the house) -- but not sure for how much longer...! :( There is a definite fall chill in the air...!
Trying: A new restaurant that opened here recently, along with SIL. It was Italian -- which can be a minefield for me, with my tomato allergy :p -- but everything went well -- food & service were both good. We'll be back!
