Welcome to my weekly update for November 8, 2020!
My husband started his new work assignment last Monday so I feel safe to say that we left Portland, Oregon and we’re now in Oceanside, California, just north of San Diego! We enjoyed our time in Portland but we’re chasing good weather in our RV. We spent last winter in Newport Beach, California, so we’re on slightly familiar territory. We were hoping to go to Arizona but the hospital my husband applied to isn’t in a hurry to hire so he accepted this job instead. It feels good to be a 10-minute drive from the Pacific though! And temperatures right now are perfect for me!

The Mandalorian Season 2–We love this show so much! We were planning to wait on watching season two until after all the episodes were released but we just couldn’t. We tend to be slow watchers anyway, so why not get started? I’m not sure how my husband manages to actually watch it over my squeals of “Baby Yoda is so cute!!!!!!” Or “I love his baby Moses basket so much!!!!!!” We’re talking serious tween squealing here. But he is so cute!!!
I realized today that it’s been a little while since I listened to a Bloody Jack book, so I think it might be time to visit Jacky and enjoy Katherine Kellgren’s fabulous narration. I placed some library holds on Mary Roach‘s books so I hope one of those becomes available soon. I’ll also be continuing with Nonfiction November and hopefully reviewing some of my nonfiction books from this year.
What did your week look like?
