Here we are again, rambling on about our thoughts, our feelings, and our perspectives. Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous, to see what others are chatting about.
It has been a great week so far, and when I examine it, to see why it was so great, I think it must be the weather. A little rain, but mostly sunshine with just enough crispness in the air to make me feel like breathing it all in.
Yes, sappy, right?
It could also be because it’s payday week….yes, for the thirty plus years of my career, checks came biweekly, and it was easy to budget. Post-retirement: two checks, each one once a month, usually within a week of each other. This time, they are two days apart. And after a few years of it, I am still wondering why the month is so LONG.
And then I happily spend as if there is no tomorrow…and I’m on the third month of the week again, wondering where the money went…sigh.
But I love doing what I want, when I want. Blogging, reading, writing…and playing with Phoebe, my new iPhone. Yes, I have definitely discovered the fun of it all.
It’s been a great week for curling up to read, too. I read two mysteries, one right after the other: Catch Me, by Lisa Gardner (click for my review); and All Day and a Night, by Alafair Burke (click title).
My current read: one of Diane Chamberlain’s back list, The Escape Artist. Not my favorite of hers, so far, but I can’t seem to put it down, either. A woman loses custody of her baby (for really stupid reasons!), and runs. Changes her identity and ends up across the country. Some practical issues seemed to be glossed over, but I am finding it fascinating, nonetheless.
And back to the purging…yes, more! I was studying my still-crammed office the other day and decided to recycle some of those VHS tapes…yes, when was the last time I watched them? I had to save my favorites of course, but when I moved more books off the shelves, I found space for them here (below), bottom shelf. And the wicker cabinet that previously contained them and jutted out like an eyesore…moved elsewhere, to contain a few other things.
What was your week like? What projects, reading, etc., have been consuming your days?
