Watching: Last Tango in Halifax - a lovely BBC show about two widowed older folks who meet again and decide to marry. And Sherlock.
Eating: Juicy white peaches. Poached salmon. Lots of basil.
Reading: Incessantly. The best of recent novels:
The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances by Ellen Cooney. A mysterious school for the rehabilitation of abused dogs -- or is it for the rehabilitation of the people who come there?
Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes by Betsy Woodman - the first in a series about a Scottish woman in India, along the lines of the Alexander McCall Smith "Ladies Detective Agency" series.
11/22/63, Stephen King's non-horror time travel novel about a man who tries to go back in time to stop the assassination of JFK.
The House at the End of Hope Street by Menna von Praag. A house for women who need a bit of a breather while they figure things out, along with some magic realism. Charming.
Creating: Lots of sketches. (See here.) Jumbly journals. (See here.) And getting ready to quilt a quilt that has been waiting far too long.
What have you been up to? Read any good books lately?
