It’s Monday (September 6, 2021)

It’s Labor Day in the US and Canada, so if that’s where you are, hope you’re enjoying the long weekend.

We had no travel plans, so hung out at home. Played tennis, went swimming, the kids went biking. It was nice and relaxing.

Some things last week:

The husband made sushi for dinner. Or rather, I prep all the ingredients, and he does all the rolling.
A visit to the library and a peek at the new arrivals shelves.
Korean BBQ at home. We also had some bulgogi (marinated thinly sliced beef), rice, lettuce.
It’s grape season at the farmers market.



Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy and The Merry Spinster by Mallory Ortberg


Last week, there wasn’t a new episode of Hospital Playlist… sad…

But I finished watching the first season of KDrama Let’s Eat. Which always makes me hungry as they feature some tasty looking foods every episode. It’s a story about a woman who reluctantly becomes friends with her two neighbors and colleagues. She’s a foodie but can’t eat out by herself. The show has its problems, such as the “ugly” character, who is used as fodder for laughter at times.

Eating and Drinking:

For breakfast, toasted homemade sourdough bread and tea.


Something simple like fried noodles, or noodle soups.

Last week:

I read:

Forest of Memory – Mary Kowal Robinette

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion – Margaret Killjoy

I posted:

The Disaster Tourist – Yun Ko-eun

Library Loot (September 1 to 7)

Ham Helsing: Vampire Hunter – Rich Moyer

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 drool over your posts – such gorgeous food pics!! We love bulgogi – used to get it in a little restaurant (sadly, gone now) downtown when we both worked down there.

    So exciting to be able to browse in the library again! Ours just re-opened fully last month, so we made a visit last weekend.

    I’ve been hearing good things about Once There Were Wolves – hope you enjoy both books this week!
