Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!

How’s this for random?…a snapshot of the turkey who wanders around our neighborhood. 🙂

Additional miscellaneous stuff…I recently watched ‘In the Heart of the Sea” and I think Ron Howard does an excellent job at directing movies!  As you may know, one of my hobbies is family history research and I had just recently read a newspaper article about a early cousin of mine who had worked on whale boats for a few years.  So that element made the movie that much more interesting to me. Plus, I didn’t realize (before I watched the movie) the extent that people depended on whale oil for lighting their lanterns etc. Interesting! Here’s a clip of my cousin’s adventures:



Also…I gotta share what I’ve been reading lately.  Thanks to the recommendation from BookClub Mom, I just finished ‘All the Light We Cannot See’.  It was a very good story with an interesting writing format. Tip:  Be sure to pay attention to the date headers! 🙂


And that’s about it for this Monday!  Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!

  1. Cool photo! I really loved All the Light We Cannot See, a great book. Have you ever used goodreads? I love it. It’s a great way to get book recommendations from friends, read reviews, write reviews, keep track of books I’ve read and want to read. I think you might like it.


  2. I’ve been wanting to see In the Heart of the Sea. I read the book and thought it was fascinating. I always like reading about boats and voyages, for some reason. I enjoyed reading about your cousin too! Thanks too for the shout out – glad you liked All the Light. One of my faves! Happy Monday!


  3. “All The Light We Cannot See” is not only a moving story, but it’s beautifully written. I couldn’t put it down. If faithful to the book, I think the movie would also be wonderful. I need to read another one of Doerr’s novels. Thanks for recommending “Light” to others.
