It’s Monday and it’s raining!



Happy Monday!

The kids are back in school after a week-long break.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! As usual, we did our Thanksgiving hotpot!



The weekend before Thanksgiving, we headed down Highway 1 to Big Sur and Cambria, then to Ventura! You can read my post about this here. But if you know me by now (via the blog that is), you can probably guess that there’s a lot of eating involved. And so, don’t read the post when hungry!



Shrimp and loofah dumplings

We cooked laksa at home. Yum!



 A recent finished project. This is the Around Town Cardigan using Touch of Alpaca yarn in Blush and Purple Aster.





The Light Brigade – Kameron Hurley

I’m really enjoying this SF read that has humans at war with Martians.





Sugar Rush Christmas. Fun!


On the Move – Oliver Sacks


Hot dog bun from Kee Wah Bakery


Black tea with milk


Shepherd’s pie maybe. We had laksa last night which was yummy!


Last week:

I read:


Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Really enjoyed this story in which a young girl is sent by the Mayan god of death on a journey.

The Chain – Adrian McKinty

An interesting plot that starts with a girl being kidnapped and her mother made to kidnap someone else’s child in order to have her daughter released (and the chain going). The writing is nothing to shout about, the first part of the story quite thrilling, but the second part, not so much.

Library Loot (November 27 to December 3)

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood



It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date
