Good morning, and welcome to another edition of My Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts, hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.
As I came awake this morning, I was full of thoughts about this feature. I had it well-organized in my mind, with salient points lined up so neatly.
Alas! Nothing looked as good to me once I sat down at my computer…sigh.
So bear with me…and I’ll ramble along, just as I usually do.
Remember last week when I ranted about waiting for the maintenance people? Well, as predicted, they kept me waiting until almost the last possible moment (Friday morning at 10:00 a.m.), and then there they were, a woman and a man, and the woman pushed her way in (literally), as if I had been holding HER up…and proceeded to be rude and abrupt. I ranted a bit about that on my Sunday Potpourri post…and I love this image I found that perfectly sums up her attitude.
Okay…enough said on that topic!
This week was much better than last week, and I had a lovely dinner at my daughter’s home on Monday evening. She and her fiance Steven put together such a delightful gathering. They are both great cooks and hosts, and the conversation is always fun and lively.
I always feel fabulous afterwards. And I am definitely proud of how well she does so many things.
On the reading front, do you sometimes have your week planned, with a nice mix of eclectic books…and then pick them up, one at a time, and suddenly find yourself on a completely different path?
That was never an issue for me pre-blogging, when my moods totally dictated my reading. Now, for some reason, I think everything must be planned perfectly: Review books, TBR Mountain books, New books. Just like that.
It doesn’t always work like that, does it? Do you allow yourself to deviate from your bookish goals? Do you have a Plan B?
One thing I know for sure: (Oprah moment! LOL)
My attempt to organize my reading has paid off with a smaller TBR Mountain. Here’s a visual of my stacks in March 2012:
And here they are nowadays:
Hope you have a wonderful day, and enjoy your bookish and non-bookish moments!
