Reading Round-up: November 2021

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I was traveling a lot in November and also getting back to dayjob things, so my reading fell off slightly.

Back in Virginia

After a great deal of traveling and further adventuring, I got back to Virginia a week and a half ago.

It's a basement apartment in a nice, residential neighborhood where the backyard is full of goats and chickens. I feel almost like I'm back in Virginia. The S.O. has decided to extend his contract here for a time,... Continue Reading →
