I’m feeling less than accomplished today. I actually got quite a few things accomplished yesterday…it just doesn’t feel like it. Not sure why. I’ll need to turn that around today.
When I got back from running Many errands and doing some shopping, it was about 3pm. I watched Nigella Lawson on the Cooking Channel ( the one cooking show I allow myself lately) and then tried to stay out of Ralph’s way. When he’s working on his artwork for Christmas, it’s usually for the best if I stay out-of-the-way.
I read while watching Nigella. I’m in the midst of
It’s a fascinating story. But do you know how sometimes in a book when the author can be extremely descriptive and you’re sucked in by every word? Well this isn’t it. She works at being very descriptive, but I just want her to move the story along. I’m enjoying it nonetheless.
I haven’t shown all of the great book deals I’ve been finding and I’m not about to go in the bedroom to take a photo…Ralph is still sleeping, but believe me, there have been deals. It is going to be a very difficult job for me to try to figure out my initial reading list for 2013. I have a plan and it includes books like this…
Not that I’m actually going to read a 1400 page book…well maybe later in the year but certainly not to start off! I have always been fascinated by this story and I can’t wait to see the movie. But, yes, I’m going to try to do some of the classics I’ve missed out on in my reading life.
Interestingly, one on my list is Little Women. I have a wonderful old copy of it that I got at one of the library book sales. It has beautiful illustrations in it. I’m almost afraid to actually read it. But the funny thing is that yesterday when I was trying to stay out of Ralph’s way, Little Women was on one of the movie channels. It was the updated version with Winona Ryder and I loved it! So now I’m looking forward to the book!
That’s my sneak peek for 2013 for the moment. I’ve got to get my ducks in a row in So Many ways!!
Lots to accomplish, I’d better get on my way!
Happy Tuesday!! Where do I start?!?
