Just a few things I’ve been up to lately…..
1. Let’s talk books! I mentioned this book 2 weeks ago and I finished it last week, and really enjoyed it. It’s called Little Beach Street Bakery: A Novel by Jenny Colgan. What I would call a simple read with a good story and a predictable happy ending but still really good. I got the book from my mom and didn’t realize until I was linking the book above to amazon, that it’s part of a trilogy. There’s also “Summer at the Little Beach Street Bakery” and “Christmas at the Little Beach Street Bakery.” I may have to check these out sometime.
I also read a book over this past weekend. It’s called Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. The author grew up in Pittsburgh and Ohio, so shout out to a hometown girl. This book was a New York Times bestseller and a Notable Book of the Year by The New York Times Book Review. Let me tell you, it was so good. Kind of haunting but moving. And a really insightful portrait of a family. So, so good. I highly recommend.
2. TV talk- I ain’t got much. Lots of playoff hockey and bad reality TV. Also Billions because it’s just so good.
3. We bought a grill!!! we’ve only talked about it for 4 years and we finally went and bought a gas grill. Nothing fancy, just a cheap one that took us 2 frustrating hours to put together. Two really, really frustrating hours. When we finally got it together Mikey went to test it out to make sure it worked and almost burnt off his beard and did burn off half an eyebrow. Scary shit.
