Current Distractions, August 2020 Edition

I hate to say this, but the tree out in front of my house is already changing colour. This is the joy and peril of life in Saskatchewan. I have no idea what this coming fall and winter hold, even moreso than usual. With the ongoing global pandemic, which yes I do still want to write more about, I don't know what activities will be available, where I'll be spending my time, and whether I'll be healthy or not. At time of writing, there are over 25 million confirmed coronavirus cases globally, meaning there's been about one case per every 325 people or so. Also at time of writing, everyone I know and love so far are in good health at least as far as the coronavirus is concerned.

On a lighter note, as you'll be learning in an upcoming post, my reading options are going to be opening up pretty soon.

August has been a pretty good month, all things considered, though. I complained too much about my zucchini harvest last year, so the zucchini gods cursed me this year and I didn't get a single one. On the other hand, I have lots of carrots. I made it out to some lakes to swim and kayak, and I got quite a bit of reading done.

I haven't said it for a while, but I still hope that anyone reading this is also doing well, physically and mentally. If not, hang in there and I hope things are better for you soon.

Selling Sunset seasons 1-3
Star Trek: Lower Decks
Formula One: Drive to Survive
Let's Play Alan Wake by ChristopherOdd (I didn't like actually playing this game but needed to know what happened for the new Control expansion called "AWE" that was released at the end of the month)

Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente
The Prestige by Christopher Priest
Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

And speaking of what I'm reading, I have a very early bingo on my TBR Bingo card to report! Thanks to The Prestige! (Which by the way is a really intriguing book that I'll never be able to divorce from the movie, which I honestly think does a better job.)
