Goodness. It’s been an interesting week. A productive one, but even though it was a short week it sure felt long. We did manage to get some fun in though. Since my #OneWord post where I named Discover as my word for the year, I made sure to get out this past Saturday. I mean, I bolted for the door.
We visited The Grove in Los Angeles, visited historic Farmer’s Market, Los Angeles and then ended up at the Santa Monica Pier. The weather was so nice.
Same as always, I am sitting here with my coffee, eating some toast with apricot preserves. I’d kill for some lemon curd but I don’t seem to have any on hand. Trying to decide which church service to go to. It’s better for me to go to the earlier one but not so great for the rest of my family.
I’ve been in denial but we are in production week for Peter Pan. It really shouldn’t be that bad since she doesn’t have a lead and The Teen is not in the show. No complicated call times to keep track of. Just ensemble stuff. Easy peasy. I will be working backstage but my time back there will be cut short this time. I won’t know what to do with myself. I’ve spent so many hours backstage it just feels weird to not be doing it this time.
At work, the students return on Monday so it will be plenty busy for the next few weeks.
All sorts of good stuff going on in the reading department. I am a reading fool! Back-to-back books read and reviews written right after finishing them. Did someone put something in my water? I just finished Ghettoside a few days ago. A good read about black on black violence in Los Angeles. It’s my club’s pick for February. I think it will be a good discussion.
I also finished Faulk’s new book, Where My Heart Used to Beat. The review will post this week. I liked it a lot.
I am reading The Time Traveler’s Wife which I never got around to doing earlier. Also reading Lost & Found by Brooke Davis which was just sent to me but has started off well.
I have Jurassic World on DVD but haven’t been able to sit down and watch it. I really need to so I can send it back to Netflix.
I am starting the countdown for The Walking Dead!! Valentine’s Day, baby!! It’s almost here!!
Nothing. My going to the market is dependent upon these kids getting up and they are still in bed.
Getaways, even short road trips. I’ve got to change the scenery once in awhile or I go a little stir crazy.
Anyways, I wish the weekend could be five days long and the work week only two days long. Someone got it backward.
