I started doing Ten Things I Liked This Week in June of 2015 and it’s definitely become my favorite monthly post. I love adding to my list throughout the week.
Here are ten things I liked this week:
1. A beautiful morning
A lovely morning inspires me to get off the train a few stops early and walk to work.
2. The Musketeers
for the second time We’re partway through rewatching the first and second seasons before we watch the third and final season for the first time. Such a fun show.
3. Fiona spending time with her parents.
(You knew there would be a Fiona update didn’t you?). I have an irrational desire to fly to Cincinnati and hang out at the zoo until I see her in person.
4. The Hubster’s birthday present
He adores the Minions for some reason so he needed Turbo Dave. It’s hilarious.
5. These clowns
Abby loves Howie. Howie is getting old and was just diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism as well as some other issues. He’s now on daily meds and once the thyroid issue is settled down we’ll see how much of the other things were side effects of that.
This is just an excellent show. The third and final season is airing now. David Tennant and Olivia Coleman are so good as detectives.
I was fully prepared to ignore Amazon Prime day until the Roomba. I’m impressed so far.
8. Field trips for ice cream
On Friday my boss scheduled a ‘meeting’ at Ben and Jerry’s. Supporting our downtown Ben and Jerry’s supports a good cause.

10. Wonder Woman
We finally saw it yesterday. I loved it.
5. A Fiona Update
You knew there’d be something about Fiona didn’t you? She’s been spending more and more time with her mother and in the outdoor pool.
6. Starting Fresh
I deleted my TBR spreadsheet this week. Then I returned all the library books I had out with the exception of the one I have through interlibrary loan. Prior plans are no longer relevant.
7. A New Job for The Hubster
He was laid off in April. He’s getting severance pay so we’re not hurting but this week he accepted a new job starting August 1st. It’s a relief.
8. My New Kitchen Light
We’re in the process of winding down the slowest kitchen refresh in history. We started with paint back in 2005 This week we replaced the old light over the kitchen table.
The old one. I have hated it from the day we moved in.
The new one. I love it.
9. My Friend’s Siberian Kittens
They are adorable and mischievous.
They opened the drawer themselves
They’re in that crime spree stage
10. Movie Day
We’re finally seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this afternoon.
7. Friday afternoon in the back yard
Record setting rain is getting old. Friday was beautiful and I worked from home so I could skip the whole commute time and go straight to enjoying life in the back yard.
8. Silver Falls State Park
We went for an explore yesterday. First stop was Silver Falls State Park. Eight waterfalls worth of hiking on a beautiful day. This is Middle North Falls and is one of the falls you can walk behind.
8. This weather vane at the Oregon Garden
Another one of our stops yesterday. I need this weather vane.
It's not a word, but it should be, because it's the best description of both my reading habits and my blog posting habits. This blog is primarily about the books I'm reading, with occasional other stuff thrown in.
