Renovation Updates | Weekly Snapshot

Gah, October? Where did the year go? I'm suddenly realizing we are entering the busiest season of the year and there's going to be tons to do for the next three months. It is unseasonably warmer right now, which makes it harder to believe that it's October. The colors have started changing but it's almost like the trees don't care and aren't even trying to put up a show.  Renovation updates At this point, we have completed two weeks in our house while under renovation. Yes, it's every bit as irritating, annoying, frustrating, dusty, and allergy-triggering as they say a renovation can be. But it's also oddly fascinating seeing your house ripped down to the subfloor and peeking inside walls at the things that are typically hidden inside one. It was also satisfying seeing progress made - there's a wall one day, no wall the next day, and then all openings patched up the third day.

Adulthood is a Myth (and one more) | Quick Reviews


Adulthood is a Myth: This is essentially a book of drawings / scribbles on some of the author's experiences. Some of them were outright hilarious, some were more observational, while others were just meh. There were several that I liked a lot and I went crazy on Litsy sharing them. Definitely recommended, especially if you are looking for a fun read that won't take more than half an hour.




The Trouble With Women: This is a quick satirical look at all kinds of condescending remarks made by male "geniuses" who thought they could explain why there are not enough famous or talented women, especially in STEM. I initially started reading it as an amusing take on the history of men's comments on women, and although the entire book is written in a tone of jest, there were several eminent men that I lost my respect for, including Darwin and Baron Pierre de Coubertin. This is yet another coffee table book that was quick to read.
