It has been such a short time since Bloggiesta, when I totally made over this site….and now, a little more than a month later, I’m at it again!
New theme, new header, new background. New logo for Weekly Updates.
Some of my obsessions include making over things, purging stuff, and rearranging my rooms.
This week, I gathered up two handfuls of clothes from my closet. Clothes I hadn’t worn in more than five years. Now my closet looks very neat. And I have lots of extra hangers! LOL.
I will never again have a closet I love as much as the one in my A-frame house in the foothills. In the last year I was there, my son did a lot of painting for me, added some ceiling fans, and put in California Closets for me. I so loved it!
But this rented condo is not worth the time. Already I have the bookshelves and DVD shelves he built…so that gives me a good feeling.
Over at my Bookish Thursdays post, I ranted a little about losing my reading mojo…after finishing two books I loved.
A Desirable Residence and Fin & Lady were books I bought in 2014 from the Barnes & Noble bargain table. I have tried numerous times to get into each of them. I’ve even posted excerpts for various memes. So I planned to read them during the Read-a-Thon…but spent all my time on The Obsession (which I loved! Click title for my review).
No luck! I gave up on each of them after 50 pages, which is my minimum. Sometimes I go 100 pages, but only if I can’t stop reading…which means I’ve engaged.
So these two books were tossed out with the recycling. I’m sure they are great books, and it’s probably my fault that I couldn’t connect with the characters or the situations.
Or I could blame how much I loved the books I already read this week.
Now I’m alternating between two books…one on Pippa, and one print book. More on those books another day.
These are my Curl up and Read moments for the week…
What did your week look like so far? Or how about your obsessions, changes, binge-watching, etc.?
