Welcome to my weekly update for January 10, 2021!
Well. This week in the US was more exciting than I would have liked. I don’t even know where to start. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the Capitol Police officer who was murdered in the line of duty and also the families of the other people who died there. I hope all those hate-filled faces that have been splashed across my TV for days now are found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I hope that President 45 is stripped of power, hopefully formally but at least behind the scenes. I hope that law enforcement officials have realized that the threat we’ve all seen growing for months and years is real and have ample security in place for the inauguration. I pray that Biden and his team find a way to heal our country and lead us forward. Together.

Scrubs on Amazon Prime–My husband and I both worked night shift when Scrubs was on network TV so we weren’t able to watch it then. We’ve managed to watch seasons here or there as our streaming platforms have picked it up and dropped it. We recently found it on Amazon Prime so we’re busily trying to finish it before it disappears from us again!
I need to read a “truth bomb nonfiction” book for The Uncorked Librarian reading challenge and that topic has me stumped. “January’s theme is ‘Truth bomb nonfiction’ — books that teach you something new, inspire, drop truth bombs, or make you think differently.” Any suggestions?
What did your week look like?
