Last Week I:
Listened To: I had to race to finish Tea Obreht's Inland before my library loan expired and then I started Patrick Radden Keefe's Say Nothing. First of all, I'm sure it really is a good book in print; but, holy moly, I'm sort of wishing Irish people read all audiobooks.
Watched: Manchester Park, again. When it was over, The Big Guy said "thank heavens." Folks, I'm not sure I can remain married to a man that says that about a movie based on a Jane Austen book. I'll keep you updated as the situation develops.
Read: I finished Mary Doria Russell's The Women of the Copper Country and I'm finishing Kevin Wilson's Nothing To See Here this morning. If you'd asked me before I started both books, I would have said without hesitation that I would probably like the Russell book better. Nothing against that book, but I raced through Nothing To See Here. I'm not sure that it's right to say I was delighted by a book about children that start on fire but I was.
Made: Not a whole lot. Again. Partly because, oh boohoo, we were eating birthday dinner leftovers for a couple of days. Partly because I've been battling a cold and nothing sounded good. Maybe this week I'll get my mojo back.
|In theory, I'd iron those napkins.|
But I probably won't!
This Week I’m:
Planning: On getting caught up on 40 Bags In 40 Days this week. I didn't get much done while I didn't feel good (and also couldn't lean over without my nose dripping!). Luckily, BG chipped in a couple of bags so I did still get 4 bags out.
Thinking About: Changes. I don't like to make them but sometimes they're necessary. So I'm working on ways to make the upcoming changes in my life easier on me.
Feeling: Anxious. I did a thing last week that I can't tell you about yet. Not even you, Mom, so don't ask. If it works out, I'll tell you about it. If it doesn't, we never had this conversation!
Looking forward to: Dinner with friends tomorrow night, book club on Tuesday, and celebrating my dad's birthday this weekend which also means that I get to see my sister.
Question of the week: What do you get a man who is turning 85 who pretty much has everything he wants?
