It’s Monday (November 23, 2020)

Happy Monday!

The kids are on break this week. We don’t have any plans but to hang out at home, maybe hit the park, lots of reading and video game time.

If you’re in the US, what are your Thanksgiving plans?

Here’s some of what we did last week…

Some crafts done in second grade distance learning. The top one is corn. The fourth grader made a basket out of a paper plate and yarn (which I forgot to take a photo of)

The 7yo and I started working on a 500 piece puzzle that’s all about books.



The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe – Kij Johnson



Still listening to Dear Girls by Ali Wong. A delight!

Eating and drinking:

I had oatmeal with raisins for breakfast. Cold mornings always make me want oatmeal.


Our usual Thanksgiving meal is hot pot. We didn’t grow up here and none of us (except my youngest) likes turkey anyway, plus hot pot is always a great idea for cold weather!

Last week:

I read:

My Fake Rake – Eva Leigh

I posted:

Keeping track of Best Books of 2020 links

Library Loot (November 18 to 24)

10 (ok maybe more) characters I’d name a cat after #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. Mmmm…I love oatmeal on a cold morning, too. With the cooler weather and fall season, I am enjoying mine with apples and walnuts.

    Love seeing your kids’ crafts! Makes me miss those days, though I am sure this year has been challenging with little kids! Mine are in their 20’s now.

    Have fun with your puzzle and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I love oatmeal, too. And turkey! The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe looks really interesting! I hadn’t heard of it before. Happy Thanksgiving! I made hot pot for the first time recently, and it was delicious!
