Everglades, "river of grass"
Sunday again... and just two weeks left in Florida. Highlights this week included a day trip to Shark Valley in the Everglades and exploring coastal communities to our north. A couple of home improvement projects/repairs were completed, too, and we've scheduled two exterior jobs for after we leave. Time is winding down, but signs of spring are finally starting to appear at home.
It was a good week in reading, too.
Finished this week//
by Elena Ferrante, narrated by Hillary HuberMy sixth Ferrante novel since reading My Brilliant Friend last March, I may be suffering from burnout. Mini review this week.
American Housewife: Stories by Helen EllisIt's been a while since I last read a short story collection... this one was a little uneven. Mini review this week.
The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix SweeneyI was surprised to find this ebook available on the library's website. They must have added it just before I clicked over. Started reading last night and love it!
by Erik Sherman, narrated by Darrel J. CaneiroI'll bet you didn't know I was a Mets fanatic in the late 80s and early 90s. That's a story for another time, but I am absolutely loving this book! It's both a trip down memory lane (with fresh insight) and a profile of the players' lives in the thirty years since that historic season.

The week ahead//
Today will be a typical Sanibel Sunday - farmers market, long beach walk, and dinner with my FIL. We have a couple more 'exploring excursions' on tap this week and plans for the trip home are starting to take shape. Twin A and her boyfriend will return this week. They'll drive one car (and Zelda) back home for us. We'll linger an additional week, then my husband, Twin B, and I will hit the road, too. I can't believe we been here since January... it doesn't seem like it's been that long.
How was your week? What are you reading today?
