Unraveled Wednesday, 1/20/21.

First of all, let’s all rejoice about this:

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.

Knitting.

Two hats for the Blue Hat Project.

The hat on the left is nearly done. Trying to decide whether to start another hat or pick up a UFO. Stay tuned…

Reading.

To Tell You the Truth by Gilly Macmillan. This was a real page-turner of a suspense novel, all the while wondering if this were an unreliable narrator. I shall not reveal whether that was the case. The ending seemed a little rushed, but that is my only criticism. 3★

The Scorpion’s Tail by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. These two authors always deliver a decent suspense novel. This one, set in the deserts of New Mexico, does not disappoint. 3★

The Innocent by Ian McEwan. McEwan is one of my favorite authors ever since I read Atonement nearly 20 years ago. I thought this one was a new book, but it turns out to have been published in 1989. The “innocent” of the title is a young English post office technician who has been sent to Berlin in 1955 to help with a secret project tunneling under the Soviet section of the city to tap into their phone lines. The plot takes a very strange turn in the last section. 4★

Watching.

I watched the first episode of Bridgerton on Netflix, but had a hard time keeping the characters straight. Carole says to keep watching and it will all fall into place.

The Pale Horse on Amazon Prime. I watched episode one last week, haven’t gotten to episode three yet because X Files. Agatha Christie always delivers. (Except towards the end of her writing career. Those books were not up to snuff, imho.)

    I am watching a series on Acorn tv called “The Good Karma Hospital.” There are maybe 4 or 5 episodes in each series and maybe three or four series. I highly recommend it. A young female doctor comes to India to practice for a year to get over a breakup with a long time sweetheart. But instead of being placed at the upscale modern hospital, as a pediatrician who worked with children, she now needs to d surgery as well, and deliver babies, too. It covers how we choose to die, choices of love, choices of career, relationships, being of service, etc. It covers a great gambit of life and is very engaging. I hope you find a way to view it,

    Oh my gosh! The Innocent! I loved that little book… talk about twists and turns! Crazy! (and one that you just can’t stop thinking about!) I am off to find The Pale Horse – thank you for that recommendation!

    My children’s librarian son has talked about how there are no children’s books about Trump and are unlikely to be. How do you talk about him to a child?

    Happy inauguration day! Here’s to a better future! Wishing all the best to Biden/Harris as they work to heal our country. Peace!
    P.S. In your post title – should be 1-20-21! Thank goodness we are not back in 2020! 🙂

    Happily rejoicing!

  7. Yup, I’m definitely rejoicing about that. I just watched the inauguration ceremony live online, and it was such a relief. I am so glad that everything went smoothly.

    Love the hats!
