hooray and congratulations!

Yesterday RR received her acceptance at Mercy High School and she
did so with honors. It is so exciting and we join Mr. and Ms. Blogmaid
in their excitement and joy. The next four years will be lots of work
and fun for Ryan and her family!

from Netflix and BBC

Tonight we will finish the 4th and final episode of this excellent mystery
involving the murder of an immigrant pizza delivery guy. Collateral
stars Carey Mulligan as a police officer who untangles the story of spies,
racism, immigration and the evils of human trafficking. It is set in London
and that is always a plus.

women and books

Five of us met for lunch out here in Sausalito yesterday. We discussed
Jack London (his writing, life and the times when the book was published
in 1914, and we laughed at a few of his repetitive thoughts.) I enjoyed
myself immensely, especially since Patty did the driving and I just
relaxed with my portobello sandwich. Next month we are to read
Red Notice by Bill Browder for the book club. Library time...

my next book

I just downloaded this on my LindaKindle2 based on the recent
recommendation of Linda Herself. Then I will read the newish
Mrs. Osmond, a sequel to The Portrait of a Lady. Today is the
new book club I joined and we will discuss The Valley of the
Moon which was a bit gushy with love, in my most humble opinion.

crack down!

This relatively small bank in New York City's Chinatown is the only one
to pay for the great mortgage meltdown and recession of 2008. Abacus
tells the story beautifully and you too will grow to love this close knit
family who helps so many Chinese immigrants. On Amazon Prime.

it's not Paris, but...

Lovely lunch with Dancing Jen on Fillmore Street yesterday. This was
sort of an IT satellite spot because Jen showed me how to enjoy the
Podcast feature on my iPhone. I am finally listening to Serial and
enjoying immensely.

poignant and true

Amazon Prime provided me with a grey afternoon of quiet joy and
sorrow yesterday. I had a rocky relationship with my mother and
what I loved about the Lady Bird film is that the writer provided
me with both sides, without judgement. It is a lovely movie,
especially for women. And Sacramento, of all places!
