Welcome to my weekly update for February 6, 2022!
Today is my dad’s birthday so we were able to go home to Asheville to spend the day with him. Happy birthday, Daddy!
A few weeks ago I found myself pretty close to Sullivan’s Island while running some errands. It was a beautiful weekday morning so I headed on out to the beach for a walk. I had it practically to myself.

- Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse. I think this is the most unimpressive lighthouse I’ve ever seen! It was built in 1962 as a replacement for the much more picturesque Morris Island Lighthouse, which has been in danger of toppling into the ocean for 60 years but keeps hanging on.
- I took a picture of these homes because they reminded me a bit of the Northeast. Then I realized that they’re in danger of being swallowed by the ocean too. More frequent, stronger hurricanes are taking a very visible toll on our coastlines in the South.

I planned to start on the stack of my own books but several of my print library holds came in at once. Isn’t that the way it always happens? I’m not sure that I’ll finish any of my current reads this week anyway.
