I’m not finishing a lot of books at the moment, so I decided to do a weekly summary post on what I was up to! Hopefully it helps me get my blogging routine back. Fingers crossed!
Good news first: Chyna has new friends!
- Molly the white Sussex
- Trish the Isa Brown
- Indi the golden-laced Wyandotte
They are getting along okay! Chyna made herself the boss, which makes sense as she’s the oldest and been here first. There’s no bullying and fighting though. Only some puffing up & a little pecking here and there. But mostly they are happy together. One of them is laying already! It’s a light brown egg and kinda small, so I guess it’s either Trish or Indi 😀
We’re getting another bunch in October/November as there is still so much space in the coop.
All the chickens!!
I am on page 303 of Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood and a bit confused on whether I like it or not. It’s easy to read and I’m definitely not forcing myself, but there’s just nothing exciting happening. I guess contemporary is just not my thing. Everything seems so bland and you can only read so much about several quirky female characters.
I haven’t decided yet what to read straight after I’m done. I’m only sure that it’s going to be a Fantasy novel! Maybe I finish His Dark Materials? Or maybe I start re-reading Assassin’s Apprentice? Hmmmmm…
I might also try 1 or 2 samples of novels I’m not sure about..
Yesterday, Mr. DZ and I watched episode 4 & 5 of Good Omens. So we only have one to go. I like it, but don’t LOVE it. David Tennant is brilliant & I love that Pratchett’s influence is noticeable, but it’s a bit too fragmented at some points. And some of the humour falls flat.
I do like the old witch hunter as well though! And happy to see that some Discworld characters appear 🙂 Now we only have one episode to go and then M. DZ can pick the next series we start. We cancelled Netflix and jumped to amazon prime for now. Their shows seem more interesting. Although we DO have to go back to Netflix at some point to catch the next season of Glow.
Apart from that, my week was pretty uneventful. Went to work, started teaching Walter how to heel (he’s picking it up very quickly!) & watched way too much wrestling 🙂
Oh, and we planted some new trees – couple of olives, a cherry, 2 passion fruit and an apricot.
Mr. DZ is outside right now building a massive hot house! We’re almost ready for spring ❤
Hope you all had a good week!
