It’s Monday (May 31)

Happy Monday! We’ve got a long weekend here in the US, as it’s Memorial Day. Hope you had a good weekend.

Some things last week…

The school had their book fair last week. It was all outdoors, socially distanced, and we had to book a half-hour appointment. It was the boys’ first time back on the campus for over a year.
A nice hike along the hills. As always, once it hits late April, it’s all brown.

We also had our first barbeque of the year. Steak, sausages, asparagus, and a tomato salad. It was a nice day to sit in our backyard and hang out.


Reading: Tweet Cute – Emma Lord

Watching: Hospital Playlist. It’s my first K-drama! It’s maybe a bit less typical for a K-drama as it’s set in a hospital and is about a group of five doctors (4 men 1 woman) who have been friends since medical school. I always presume that most K-dramas are about romances (let me know if I’m wrong!), and so far there hasn’t been any in this show.

The five of them also play in their own band. Which is probably the “playlist” part of the title.

But what I found quite interesting is learning that hospitals in Korea also host funerals. They have their own reception and dining areas for the wake.

Listening: Butter by BTS

Eating: Had some toast for breakfast and a bit of mozzarella cheese.

Drinking: Tea


The 8yo has discovered that he likes cherry tomatoes. Or at least the tomatoes that we got at Costco the other day. It was a mix of different types of cherry tomatoes. He decided we had to have it both at lunch and dinner.
An order I placed with online Asian grocer Weee! So I have to now figure out what to do with the sprouts and broccoli.

Last week:

I read:

Heiress Apparently – Diana Ma

Nuclear Winter Vol 1 – Caroline Breault

I posted:

Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome

Library Loot (May 26 to June 2)

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. Yeah Scholastic book fair! Although their favourite part is the pencil pull to get little gifts like funny pens and small stuffed animals…


  1. Good choice, 8yo. I like cherry tomatoes because you can get them loose at the plastic free shop and it seems that the household can’t get enough of them, unlike fruit, which is very hit and miss and sometimes just sits there uneaten.

  2. Its so interesting how different places have handled things. My daughter is in a private school but they were in school as normal all year, with masks.
