Words, Words, Words

Everyone is moving right into the new year and here I am feeling as if I have a scratch in my vinyl. My mind is skipping all over the place so I thought it best to at least check in.

Many of you have come up with your One Word for the year. I am toying with words in the back of my mind but none of them are right and many of them are strange (in my opinion) but seem to fit the mood. Like BEAUTY. I  mean, what the heck is that about? Right now, I have a notepad by my bed and when one hits me, I jot it down. Maybe I will have one before February. Maybe not.

I’ve got some reviews written and they they will post this week. I feel good about this because I’ve been all droopy and uninteresting for almost a month now. Reading is great though. Lots of reading.


Production week for Joseph is just a couple of weeks away. It will be the third time for my son and the second time for my daughter. It’s a great show. We all enjoy it. They should be professionals by now. He is playing Pharaoh and she is an Adoring Girl.

I keep hearing about Hidden Figures the movie but I just learned about the book. Has anyone read it?”

Also, I need to buy my copy of Ulysses because there is an informal read-along starting in February. Wish me luck because I’ve tried to read it before and uh, it didn’t go so well.

That’s it. Fill me in on what’s going on with you because I’ve missed you.

Me, Right Now

Me Right Now

Hello, all. Just thought I’d stop by to let you all know what I’m up to.

Not much.

I’ve been reading a thickish book and it’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would (Summer of Night). It’s good but it’s slowing me down and my other reading is taking a backseat because of it. There are so many books I want to get to right now.

Also, I’m adjusting to having a college aged kid. He works a ton of hours and when he is off, he goes to school so we hardly see him. I was horrified to learn that he might have to work on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving!!! Our day of PJs is in jeopardy. It’s like a very different world right now and it’s weird.

I find myself in this pensive mood lately. Quiet. Thoughtful. Pensive. Everything seems to have meaning to me. It’s a tad exhausting to be thinking all the time but I’ve been doing it. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just THAT time of year. It’s not a bad place to be in but time slips away from me and before I know it, another week has passed.

And, for whatever reason, I’ve lost all craving for meat. I seem to only want vegetables. This happened to me in my 20s and that led to a vegetarian, sometimes vegan diet for a good three years. Will it happen again? I wonder if it has to do with my iron levels being normal now.

That’s basically it. Things are good and quiet but different. How about you? What is going on with you right now?
