Weekend update: Mary Russell and the Halloween quilt

I finished listening to The Monstrous Regiment of Women and started the audio of A Letter of Mary yesterday. Last weekend I did take my son to see Captain America: Civil War, which we enjoyed, but since neither of us have seen any of the prior Avengers or Captain America movies, it felt like we missed a lot!
