Weekend reads, or it's all garden all the time...

It's been more than a month since the car accident and we're all healing well. Gardening has been a welcome respite from screens -- which is good because we doubled the number of raised beds! Clearly expansion is a theme here because we've also picked up 25 chicks of different ages for our flock. (My Instagram will usually include the cutest animal pics and videos, for those interested in our microfarm.)

I've finally able to get back to reading -- time combined with physical therapy, acupuncture, and muscular therapies does wonders! -- but I'm still struggling with concentration and short-term memory. So I'm still moving slowly through my non-fiction reads --  Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space by Amanda Leduc and Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad. Fiction has been a bit easier to manage, so I've started Ariadne by Jennifer Saint. 

What are you reading this weekend? Any other weekend plans?


  1. Glad to hear you are all healing.
    Apart from the usual grocery shopping and taxi duties for my brood my plans for the weekend include two books, Flash Jim and The Girl remains

  2. I've had the same issue with concentration after an accident with a head injury. It was especially frustrating because reading is such a distraction and a comfort. I'm glad to hear fiction is a little easier at least.

  3. A great update, and your microfarm sounds like a wonderful place for mental and physical healing. Hope reading continues to get easier and you're back to 100% soon!
