Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice

Which one will you be? ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆   Yes, apocalypse. We've had that over and over. But we always survived. We're still here. And we'll still be here, even if the power and the radios don't come back on and we never see any white people again. Thoughts : Evan Whitesky returns home after a whole day of hunting to realize that his mobile phone had lost network sometime during the day. He doesn't think a lot about it then but over the next few days, his community loses electricity and their landline connection as well. To make matters worse, they are unable to contact anyone from the city to inquire when services can be restored. With the never-ending blizzard, it was not feasible for someone to simply drive to the nearest city and find out what's going on. Soon, they have to start conserving wh

Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible.



Life

Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year. 


Reading

Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Race but I had started and finished All Systems Red by Martha Wells this week. It didn't quite live up to its hype but I did like it enough to want to continue with the series.



Just yesterday, I started reading Syed Masood's The Bad Muslim Discount (to be published on Feb 2). I'm not sure what to expect yet but so far, I am enjoying it tremendously. 


Watching

After months of watching Star Trek TNG and then Discovery, this week has been very quiet in TV for me. That first evening felt very weird but I survived. Though last evening, I started watching DS9. I may be resuming that same routine again with this show but the quiet week did feel good. Friday night, we watched Ratatouille with the kids and I had forgotten how lovely this movie was.

Is it just me or does it feel like January is whizzing by?
