Last Week I:
Listened To: The Fire This Time (review next week) and lots of Spotify. I wish I could listen to podcasts on work but I haven't figured out how to do that yet; and, without a commute, I really haven't figured out a good time to do that because I'm always eager to get to my books when it might have worked.
Watched: Lots of baseball, some basketball, and, today, the Michael York version of The Three Musketeers. I had forgotten how comic it was and how beautiful the sets and costumes were.
Read: I'm working my way through Gary Krist's The Mirage Factory and am, happily, surprised to find Krist addressing racism as Los Angeles was settled.
Made: We ate lots of leftovers from last Sunday's big family dinner so I didn't have to cook much for a few days. Then it was salads, caprese pasta, and BLTs - summer fare!
This Week I’m:
Planning: On completing the refinishing of an end table - I'm hoping not to have to paint it but we'll see once I'm completely finished. Then it's on to cleaning up a table that my father-in-law built when he was in high school that will be used a vanity in one of our guest rooms.
Thinking About: Rearranging my basement. Guys, I talked The Big Guy into getting rid of a big, ugly recliner down there and once that's gone I can move some things to allow for a dedicated workout space. BG is really missing getting to go to the gym and has been picking up some weights so he could keep up with that piece of it; but, come winter, he'll need to make more use of the cardio equipment and I'd like to make that a nicer place to be.
Feeling: Like there's never enough time but confused as to why that is? I used to have five people to take care of, including all of the cleanup and things on the calendar. How can we be down to just two of us and I still don't seem to have enough time to get it all done? If anything, I think I a worse job of keeping my house clean!
Looking forward to: Possibly getting out of town this weekend to go see Miss H.
Question of the week: Are you already burning apple-scented candles and drinking pumpkins spice coffee?
