It is Tuesday, right? I keep getting calls to shift appointments around (IEP, audiology, the usual) and it has me discombobulated.


The Glass Castle just hit my Overdrive account. Is that what I want right now? Can you believe I’ve never read it?


My new hobby is doing dramatic readings of posts from the Nextdoor app. I’m recording them and texting them to my friend Lisa. I feel like I might have found my true calling at last. 😉


These are the podcasts I listen to regularly, ranked from never-miss-an-episode to catch-’em-when-I-can:
Pod Save America
Lovett or Leave It
The West Wing Weekly
Pod Save the People
Pod Save the World
Happier With Gretchen Rubin
Out of Line With Caroline Lee

I also like to save up Bravewriter podcast episodes until I have a bunch, and then binge on them when I have a busy-hands project to do.


The stars of our daily nature walks this week are moss and mushrooms. The puddles keep Huck happy while Rilla and I ooh and ah over the fungi.

P.S. thanks for the book suggestions on yesterday’s post. Keep ’em coming! I’m chairing Cybils YA Fiction this year ***but not reading on the panel*** and it hit me that that’s why I feel book-drifty. I’m using to being buried under stacks of novels this time of year.

    Based now your existing list you should definitely add “pantsuit politics” podcast. I find I like their nuanced approach more than the crooked media podcasts though I love them too. Also, I’m sure you’re in it but “what should I read next” is a great podcast. You should be a guest!

    That’s some glorious fungi.

    I’ll be checking out your podcast list. I never miss Bravewriter, but I don’t really have much else happening in my podcast world. Thank you for the ideas! xo

    oh we are pod cast sisters. Jon Lovett makes me laugh so hard. All the Pod Save stuff was my soundtrack while gardening this summer. And WWW is my cleaning soundtrack every week.

    The Glass Castle is so so good, but emotionally exhausting if you feel protective of literary children.

    A friend just handed me The Glass Castle on Thursday. But I have so many other books to read first. Some of them library books.

    I love your beautiful west coast fungi. We’ve been having a small fungi binge here after we took a little nature class on decomposition. Though this week it’s been a bit cold and wet for walks in the woods. Now begins the dreary November.
