This Week I'm:
Watching: I finally started watching The Crown on Netflix and I'm really enjoying it. Poor Elizabeth - she lost her beloved father and had this great pressure put on her all at once. Can't wait to find time for some more episodes.
Reading: I'm setting aside The Girl In The Garden for a couple of days to read Dust Bowl Girls: The Inspiring Story of The Team That Barnstormed Its Way To Basketball Glory. I downloaded it from Netgalley but also had been sent a ARC of it. I put the ARC in the hands of my brother-in-law who used to coach women's basketball and he is really enjoying it.
Planning: On a home repair of my washing machine. Paid a guy to come out because it was leaking like crazy. He gave us an estimate of $400+. That wasn't happening so we tried a couple more things ourselves and it is hardly leaking at all any more. Then we discovered we can get the part for a fraction of what the guy wanted and there are YouTube videos for the repair itself. What could go wrong?!
Thinking About: Oh, let's be serious. You already know the answer to this one.

Looking forward to: Book club this week. We all reread a childhood favorite and I can't wait to see what people chose and how it held up to their memories of the book.
Question of the week: Do you ever go back and reread childhood favorites? If so, how did they compare to your memories of them? I've read Little Women a couple of times as an adult and I still adore Jo March.
