It’s Monday (May 18, 2020)


Last week we marked 60 days of school closure. It sounds really long but somehow it hasn’t felt like that. It’s strange to think that we have been sheltering-in-place since before both my kids had their birthdays, since before spring break, and now we are in the last month or so of school. I’ve been reading that some places (like the city’s programmes) are planning summer camps (of course there have also been other news like a major summer camp company cancelling all their camps completely – and not giving refunds!).

I had been waiting and trying to decide and had not signed the boys up for summer camps in the Before. So now I’m glad I had waited because who knows what will be happening in the next few months. At this point, I’m still not comfortable with them going to be in a camp with strangers. And so I will have to figure out some summer fun of our own.

What about you? Do you have summer plans?

Some things we did last week…




The Three Body Problem – Liu Cixin

The Bridegroom was a dog – Yoko Tawada




Dead to Me Season 2



I just finished Frankly in Love yesterday so have not figured out my next audiobook.



Homemade scones




Lots of vegetables! I had a big order from an online Asian grocer and I have a big bag of broccoli and another of bok choy.

Last week:

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



  1. I think it’s preferable to stay at home this year rather than summer camp. Everyone here is getting nervous enough about the government insistence that schools reopen on 1 June in England. One of the proposals is that you keep to small groups (10-15) in school so if someone tests positive only those people in the group need to self isolate. But it would be their families as well. That’s an awful lot of families who would have to go through that inconvenience.
    I am sure you will think of something wonderful and creative to do!


  2. We (Australians) don’t have a summer camp tradition but I imagine it’s difficult to know what to do in the current circumstances. Good luck with it. We are not even half way through our school year.
    Mmm scones with butter and jam 🙂

    Wishing you a great reading week


    1. I didn’t grow up here so summer camps are new-ish to me! I feel like the summer break here is way too long and as a result the winter break is too short. 😛
