Watching my pretty flowers open. That book you see will be reviewed a week from Monday.
Almost finished with this book. What a great writer Louise Penny is!
Enjoying my cozy little bedroom here in my home-away-from-home.
And the amazingly high ceilings.
Working. Writing little Post-It note reminders. Using my much loved Filofax to keep track of my daily rehearsal schedule. I’ve tried using the calendar on my laptop and on my iPhone. They just don’t do it for me. I like to write things down by hand, whether it’s a list of things to do, a grocery list, or appointments. Somehow the act of writing by hand helps me to remember and makes it real, not virtual.
It’s been a busy week. I had planned on going home for a couple of days, starting this evening. But my plans were foiled by our car. Now, something’s wrong with the exhaust system. Very noisy. We’re crossing our fingers that its just a missing flange but nothing can be done about it until tomorrow. Think positive thoughts for our car, okay? Don’s going to drop it off tomorrow while he goes into the city for an audition.
I’m so enjoying Netflix and the options it gives me. If you’ve read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, I highly recommend the Swedish film version of all three of the books. The American film version of the first book in the series was good but it left out some key plot points as well as one or two of the characters, which I found irritating. But the Swedish version takes its time, tells the whole story, and really holds true to the author’s vision. Excellent. I just finished watching the final episode last night. Don tells me House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey is great, so that’s next on the agenda. (He’s also enjoying Netflix. We’re converts.)
Homesick. I cried a little yesterday when I realized it was a no go for the visit home. But today promises to be busy and that helps. Tomorrow? Don’t know what the heck I’ll do. Read. Take a walk. Maybe do some sewing, but I’m not inspired yet. Maybe the creative muse will strike?
