1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
The Handmaid’s Tale the book and The Handmaid’s Tale the series. I saw the Kindle download for this book on Amazon was free. I also thought I had read on a friends blog that she had recommended it, but I was mistaken. Oops. Oh well. I had it download. It didn’t cost me anything. So I read on.
The story takes place in a near future society that is intolerantly religious and restricts the rights and choices of women for their own protection. When I was finished with the book I went on to start the series on Hulu that recently premiered. The story lines in the series vary somewhat from the book, but the premise is still the same. The series is done in a way that makes the story feel current. This makes it seem real, like it COULD MAYBE even happen here and now.
If you are looking for a something to give you warm and fuzzy feelings, this is not it. But if you are looking for something interesting and different, I would totally recommend it.
2) What blog should you check out?

3) What’s been going on this week?
Work and kids. Work was busy this week. Then the kids kept me busy at home. We’ve made a few trips to the library to check out books and play. Also, they’ve have been asking to make a bunk bed for their Paw Patrol toys. They decided it should be pink. My kids think we can make anything from paper and tape.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
