It’s Monday (November 16, 2020)

Oh boy, it’s Monday. The kids are on minimum schedule this week (until 120pm), as the teachers are doing parent-teacher conferences (via zoom that is). And it’s the week before Thanksgiving break. For which we have…no plans!

Here’s some of what we did last week…

I made some red bean soup and red bean paste. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it together and make some red bean buns (an pan)

We had our favourite Indian-Pakistani food. Tandoori chicken legs, tandoori fish, four types of vegetable curry, garlic naan and plain naan.

The last Meyer lemons (my tiny tree had tiny lemons). And some last San Marzano tomatoes, although there are still a few left on the vine.

Also, I decided to break out the Christmas mugs…



The Golden Thread by Kassia St Clair

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


As a family, we’ve been watching Long Way Up. And we’re down to the last episode! The kids really love it and I think it’s an interesting look into places that we’ve never been to (South and Central America). Especially since the guys occasionally stop by Unicef centres. This season is all about electric vehicles – electric motorbikes and two electric trucks. So it’s quite unlike the first two seasons. Also, the first two seasons aren’t all that little kid-friendly as the two guys sometimes use the F-word, and are seen smoking on screen. The husband was guessing that since Long Way Up is for Apple TV, maybe they had to make sure all the cursing was edited out.


Dear Girls by Ali Wong  (listening with headphones is important if you have little kids!)


I had a slice of walnut bread and a mug of milky tea for breakfast


Oh boy I have no idea.

Last week:

I read:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Legacy Edition book one and book two

I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf – Grant Snider

Library Loot (November 11 to 17)

Book titles that would make great song titles #TopTenTuesday

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 always love looking at your gorgeous photos! The yummy food photos (your take-out meal looks delicious!), but even your book photos are lovely to look at.

    I’ve heard good things about Ali Wong’s book and that she is very funny – I’ve seen her on TV and movies but I haven’t seen her stand-up yet.

    We haven’t seen Long Way Up yet, but I’ve been seeing ads for it, and it looks intriguing.

    Enjoy your books, TV, and food this week!

    Book By Book


  2. I am drooling over your food photos! I like the sound of the Grant Snider book. My current audiobook has a good amount of “adult language” but I don’t have kids around these days. Sometimes I roll up the windows in the car if I’m stopped at a stop light, though! 😀
