I'm counting down the hours until the weekend.  Next week I only work 4 days, and then the new job starts!  Already can't wait.

Last night I watched a show on Netflix called Battlefield Recovery. It follows 4 diggers through Latvia as they look for WWII battle sites and recover memorabelia.  I'm of two minds about it.  Parts of it were very informative, and I can understand where they're coming from with wanting to get the stuff they dig up to museums, but the other part of me was horrified at how much they were destroying.  They dug giant holes, didn't document anything, and when they found human remains they pretty much just dug them up in a pretty unscientific way.  One German helmet still had the skull inside.

Archeologists they were not, but they did try to be respectful.

I think it's a valuable thing they're doing, because the war still has so many stories to tell. I'm just not sure they were the best ones to tell it.

In more domestic news, I made a roast last night and it was amazing!  I am totally going to make it again because honest to God, I could have eaten the whole thing last night.  It was soooo good!  Just a roast with apple slices cut into it, an onion, honey, cinnemon and salt.  I put it all in the crockpot at lunch and by the time I came home it was done.  I love the cooler weather!!
