I've had a two day headache so all I've been doing is sitting in a dark room and listening to audiobooks and napping. If you follow this blog on any kind of regular basis you know how I work. I do lots of stuff but rarely get anything done. Same with books. I'm always listening to something but rarely finishing. I've been listening to this 36 hour monster for months. It fills the hole GOT left. It's got all the palace intrigue of the North and then some.
I've been listening to the autobiography of this dude every night for a few weeks. It's surprising. He's had quite an unexpected journey. A bonus-it's read by Johnny Depp.
I did finish this one. I loved it but it was too short. He stopped at the age of 21. I need more, James.
If you look on my side bar you can see that this is my "official" listen. The problem is the recipes that are included. Everything sounds so darn yummy and I can't get half of the ingredients in my hit or miss grocery order. This one may have to go on the back burner for the duration of the lockdown.
I just started this one. I'm not sure where it's going yet but I do know that as bad as we have it now living through WW2 France was worse. At least for these two ill fated sisters.
And the craziest thing that I have listened to lately is this. Audible came out with a series of free readings to help you calm down and get to sleep. I have to admit that this helped me take a good nap yesterday in spite of it making me imagine that someone who sounds a lot like Idris Elba was wrapping me in crinkly copy paper and popping bubble wrap over my head. I kid you not. It's that weird-but strangely soothing.
And speaking of soothing...how about a big plate of Cronchy Potatoes? This potato recipe is a sensation over on Twitter thanks to a funny little character named Darth. I accidentally ordered two 5 lb bags of potatoes with the last delivery and this bag was looking a little iffy so I took the chance and "cronched" them. I had my doubts because it was a long involved process but they were soooooooo good.
Totally worth all the trouble. Darth knows potatoes.
