This Week I'm:
Listening To: I'm about half done with A Gate At The Stairs; I must say, it's not what I was expecting at all. While I've been working out, I've been listening to Slate's Audio Book Club. I finally found book they like - Zadie Smith's NW, which, upon listening to them, I discover is a whole different kind of book when you read it instead of listening to it.
Watching: Some Longmire, The Voice, high school basketball. Again, not much focus going on.
Reading: Finally reading the Maisie Hobbs book I was meant to review last week but didn't get until Thursday.
Making: Beef stroganoff, tostadas, and pies for my dad's birthday (chocolate French silk and a new-to-me strawberry/rhubarb pie which was a big hit).
Planning: On doing taxes this weekend. Ick.
Thinking About: Hiding my cell phone in the evenings. Seriously. I'm certain it's contributing to my inability to focus.
Enjoying: 40 Bags In 40 Days. Fourteen days in and I've thrown out or recycled thirteen bags, have three boxes and two bags ready to take to the Goodwill, and two boxes and two bags to take to a homeless shelter and the humane society. Forty bags is going to be no problem at all!
Feeling: Like my reading rut is not going to end any time soon. When you're reading books you're enjoying and still don't have any interest in picking them up, that's bad.
Looking forward to: A trip to see my great-niece (next week. And, of course, the rest of my brother's family. But mostly my great niece, who will be five months old by then.
Question of the week: How do you break out of a reading rut???
