This Week....

I'm reading



Last week I mentioned I was reading Lady Tan's Circle of Women by Lisa See. I finished it while we were away and thoroughly enjoyed it! Because I finished it while we were on the plane I couldn't download anything new so I had to choose from any books I had already downloaded. I mean, that is still more than a hundred books but it's a narrower choice than I might otherwise have had.



In the end I decided to start reading The Paris Cooking School by Sophie Beaumont. I mean Paris and food! Sounds like a winner to me!



I also finished listening to The Inheritance by Nora Roberts. I can't really decide which audiobook to listen to next. I am sure I will find something!



I'm watching



Not much really!



Life



We spent the weekend in Sydney which was a lot of fun. We had a few flight issues going both ways so we were a bit late landing - us and all the Swifties who were flying in for the Taylor Swift concerts that were happening this weekend.



Our main reason for going was to watch SailGP. On Sunday we were on an island in the middle of the course and so the boats were sailing very close to us. It was very cool.







 


We did learn though that it would be best to stay in Sydney for the Sunday night if we do it again. We got to the airport with plenty of time to spare but it was still a bit angsty!



We also went to see an artist exhibition at the new Art Gallery of New South Wales. The new building was extraordinary and so cleverly done. One of the galleries is actually a WWII storage tank that has now been made into an exhibition space. For this exhibition, the Tank was left quite dark which was very unusual. As for the artist, Louise Bourgeois,I am not sure she was our kind of artist, but you don't know until you try right?

  1. I have my audiobooks mostly chosen for the next little while since I'm listening to all of J. D. Robb's In Death series. I'm at 34 of 50+. Isn't it strange with more than 100 choices on your ereader that it is still hard to pick something. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. I feel you -- lots of stuff on my ereader but I want OPTIONS. I'm glad you found something for the plane ride. That looks like a wonderful treat -- boats and art!
