What? A librarian who knits? I’m shocked. 🧶

Sipping turmeric tea, I remember years ago when my friend Gabriel and I each happened to be visiting PA at the same time. I brought him a big bag of turmeric; it was expensive there, and he swore by it for his daily treatments. G, you’re gone but still with me. 💔

📚 Read: You Should Have Left by Daniel Kehlmann

This is a quick, creepy read that plays with form and language a bit to build tension. I enjoyed that part but thought it could have done more. Still, this was a fun dip into scary-story season!

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

🎬 Watched: Over the Garden Wall, 2014

This was recommended to me ages ago, and like a fool, I waited this long to watch it. I’m already looking forward to watching it again, each year, around this time of year.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

📚 Read: Munmun by Jesse Andrews

Brilliantly-written satire that is also truly fun to read? Munmun is funny, heartbreaking, strange, and poignant. Andrews lambastes the absurdity of socioeconomic strata in this YA genre-bender.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Snow affogato at @cafe_sorosoro! 🎥: @ilovemesomesharks

I saw a lamprey at the zoo today. Terrifying. Then when we were passing by a second time, my friend helpfully said, “Lampreys, don’t look!” And I looked. What is wrong with me? I might never sleep again.

Look at this one hundred percent good girl. 😻
