  1. I’m one who doesn’t like mysteries or thrillers, whether books or movies/TV shows.

    I’m currently reading Winter Solstice by Rosamund Pilcher. Listening to my Spotify playlist which is an eclectic mixture of all kinds of music. Watching on TV – nothing. We’re looking for a new series, but there doesn’t seem to be much out there right now. We tried watching Bridgerton and couldn’t get into it.

    1. Winter Solstice is one of my all time favorite books. I’ve read it three times.

  2. Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty is a great book by one of my favorite authors. I had no idea it was a TV show! I can’t wait to watch it and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  3. I, too, learned to type on a typewriter like the one in the picture. Goodness, I just remember how difficult it was to push those keys down. Ugh! LOL

    You are reading and watching some very interesting things. Both of full of intrigue.

    1. Yes, pushing the keys down was hard but there’s no other sound that mimics it. The sound was rhythmic, calming and unique. And… the sound was always a bit different depending on the user and the typewriter. The ding as you were coming to the end of the line and then the sound of the carriage sound. My dad was really fast and accurate with typing. Oh how I’d like to hear that sound again…..

      1. Your description of the typewriter brought back so many memories of high school typing class. Thank you for that!

  4. The typewriter in one of the photos was just like the one I learned to type on in high school! Wow! I feel ancient!

  5. Apple Tree Yard sounds as if I would definitely enjoy it. I will have to see if it is on Roku.
    I did listen to the piano music Brenda but I hate to say it but even at my age I am still loving Rock, especially The Rolling Stones! It really perks me up and I just want to get going on something!
    Please give your ‘babies’ Charlie and Ivy a hug from me.
