Welcome to another Thursday! Today I’m participating in a little meme hosted by Bookishly Boisterous: a chance to explore a variety of thoughts.
Thursdays are an odd day in the week, so I serendipitously discovered this little event last week, and decided to hop on board.
This week has been strangely out of sync, as the management of my condo complex is doing routine maintenance. But they don’t tell you when they are coming! The note says “anytime between 9 and 2:30, Mon. to Fri.”
I hate that, because for me, that means staying home every day between those hours.
I have one of those homes with lots of collections, etc., so the “bull in the china shop” guys have a tendency to mow them down as they go about their business. Am I being sexist? No, I have just observed a lot of guys doing their work, whether it’s construction or maintenance, for many years. And that is why I have elected to stay close to home when they arrive…to observe and protect my turf. LOL
The upside: I have been reading, and the books I selected for this week have been wonderfully engaging. Small Blessings, by Martha Woodroof (click for review) is one of those books that seemed to wrap itself around me like a cozy shawl, as each character brought something special to the canvas.
Today I am reading Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, and those pages seem to fly through my fingers. There is bullying, and there is lots of competition between the mums at the school, and there is a murder…we think. The hint of it hovers over every page, as we wonder who did what to whom.
The kinds of books that definitely distract me during this long, hot week of annoyances.
Oh, and by the way…it is Thursday, I’ve been stuck at home all week, and they haven’t come yet! I cancelled my hair stylist for today…just because they might come today.
I looked in the mirror and studied my locks…they can manage another week.
Blogging is something else that distracts me when I’m waiting for things….and I have done something on my blogs every day this week.
I have changed themes, headers, etc. Did you notice that this blog has a new look?
So…now I’m off to grab my breakfast tray and enjoy a little munching. What are you up to today?
