reading list

  • Suzanne and I read To Kill a Mockingbird for this week’s podcast, and I am once again glad that I have avoided Go Set a Watchman.
  • “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Strength to Love has been my friend this week.
  • My son and I are reading Ramadan Moon together. I want to include more diversity in our reading list, and this one’s a great introduction to Ramadan.


at home

  • We’ve been playing a lot of Presidents in the weeks leading up to the election.
  • Are you watching The Crown? I’m just trying to finish up the new season of Black Mirror first, but it’s so intense, I can really only manage to watch one every couple of days.
  • The Thanksgiving prep has officially begun! We made thyme butter for the turkey (this is the turkey recipe I make every year) and cinnamon honey butter for the sweet potatoes this week.
