It's another Sanibel Sunday and, despite a little rain Friday, it's been a glorious week! I've walked every day, we got together with friends, attended an end-of-season reception, and had my FIL over for dinner twice. I even managed to squeeze in some reading time!
Finished this week//
by Oyinkan Braithwaite, narrated by Adepero Oduye
This audio production was unusual, engaging, and slightly disturbing. It's been described as "darkly comic", but I found it more dark than comic. Look for a book brief later this week.
The Past by Tessa Hadley
This is not fast-paced novel, but I am captivated! I should finish in a day or two.
by Beth Macy
This has been on my list since it was released last year and I snagged a copy last month during audible's BOGO sale. It's excellent so far, but guess what? Rudy Giuliani appears in this book, too.... and he's defending Purdue Pharma.

In the kitchen//
Not much happened in my kitchen this week. There was a lot of leftover Easter ham the first few days... including this Classic Split Pea Soup. I made it in the slow cooker with the ham bone. Prior to serving, I removed the bone and added bits of leftover ham. My cooking time was quite a but longer than what the recipe suggested. It was very good, but I won't share a photo. There's just no way to make split pea soup look attractive ;-)
The week ahead//
Things are winding down on the island. Winter tourists and snowbirds are mostly gone, but the summer vacation season has not arrived. Restaurants are quieter, traffic is lighter, and everything seems just a little more relaxed. We have a couple of social engagements, but I'm hoping for a quiet week.
How was your week? What have you been reading?
