Today is Booklovers Day, and I’m celebrating by digging into my TBR backlog while waiting for a repairman to drop by and fix my washing machine. I’m starting off with books III, IV, and V of The Black Butler series, and then I need to make a choice between two books that feature mysteries within mysteries, S. or House of Leaves. Let me know if you’ve read either or have a recommendation!
As much as I love reading, I’m hoping I’m not stuck in the house for too long. I spotted a swimming snake in my neighborhood’s retention pond, and I really want to go back and see if I can catch another glimpse of it. I have a video in my instagram, and it is truly like something out of a nature documentary. I never thought I’d see one in person, just behind glass at a zoo.

Perseid Meteors. The most impressive meteors of the year, the best time to see them is right before dawn, when the sky is darkest. Worth watching even if you don’t have a telescope.
