May 6th, 2016

How is everyone!? It has decided to be spring this week in Wisconsin. Mom and Grandma have bought all sorts of plants! Mom also bought some plants—including a little tree—for our miniature garden. We’ll take pictures of that soon!
We spent most of the evening watching Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain on Netflix. Mom and I have binge watched all of the Layover and now we’re on the third season of Parts Unknown. Mom likes food shows and travel shows so it fits both! I mostly just like watching shows with Mom!
Mom has been back into collecting buttons. She finds them at thrift stores and antique malls. There are all sorts of different buttons out there!

Mom is especially fond of purple buttons. I really like the blue ones! There are a lot more blue buttons than purple ones though.
We finished a book today. It is called Jungle of Stone. It is about gentlemen in the 1840s who rediscovered the Mayan civilization. Both Mom and I liked it a lot. It was very much an adventure story with a lot of cool finds!

We read several books at a time. We replaced that one with a book called the Network, about the birth of the communication age.

Are any of you reading a good book now? Mom mostly likes nonfiction, but we’re willing to try anything!

  1. Mam and I try to read a book every couple of days. Sometimes we go back and enjoy one that we liked when she was little, sometimes it's a grown ups novel and sometimes a non-fiction. We read them in three languages too, but the French ones not so much, because I think it feels like school work.
    Right now, we are reading The Family From One End Street because Mam is designing clothes for our doll friends that would be right for the kids in it. That's what she says, but I think she really just likes the story!

    We also have Amy Tan's The Bonesetter's Daughter on the go, but I find it a bit scary that people can be so mean to each other - makes me glad I'm a bear!
