Welcome to my weekly update for October 18, 2020!
My husband and I did go to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument last week for our anniversary. Most of the trails were really short (maybe half a mile roundtrip) but they took us through some beautiful areas!

Enola Holmes on Netflix–We mostly enjoyed this movie about Sherlock and Mycroft’s younger sister. I’ve seen one complaint about the way Enola directly addresses the audience, so if that bothers you, steer clear. I’m so used to seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, Henry Cavill kept throwing me for a bit of a loop! (If you haven’t seen the show starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, you should fix that right now)
This batch of books will probably keep me occupied for a while. AJ at Read All the Things is re-reading The Shining, which reminded me that I was thinking about re-reading it this year too. I visited the lodge where the exterior shots of the movie were filmed so I thought it might be fun to revisit the book. We’ll see. I may just try to find the movie instead.
What did your week look like?
