Why yes, I am easily distracted by shiny things and to-do lists.
I love my to-do lists! They keep me organized and, admittedly, a little giddy. I can feel my anxiety diminish as soon as I write down my tasks. Yep, I’m a list lover.
After being sick for a week, I needed to get back into gear and get back to work. I had plenty to do. Of course, I wanted to do anything but work. I wanted to do all the little things that had been sitting on my to-do list for awhile. And guess what? I did them. Yep, pretty much did every last one of them. It feels soooo good to get the decks cleared. Now, it’s time to roll up the sleeves and work . . . on Monday that is.
Oooh look at these shiny objects . . .
- 20 things only list lovers will understand. Number 14 is so me.
- Do you ever remember nuggets of a book but can’t remember the title. Here’s a solution to that problem.
- I’m a big believer in intuition over intellect.
- Do you stand on escalators or walk on them?
- Because this made me laugh.
I’ve been reading . . . The Sympathizer still. I’m making progress on it finally. Also still reading Madonna in Fur.
I’ve been watching . . . Big Little Lies. Yes, I succumbed and watched it. Wowza, it was good. I tried to read the book when it first came out but I didn’t like it. I tossed it after about 10 pages. So I wasn’t sure if I would like the series, but I thought I would try it.
I don’t typically like shows that are about women hating on each other and being all catty but two things kept me watching: 1.) the cast and the acting and 2.) the hook of finding out who the murder victim was. Nicole Kidman is fantastic in this series, and Alexander Skarsgård, who plays her husband, is sooooo good. And, in the end, the show is not about what I thought it was about. Without giving anything away, I’ll just say that the end has way more meaning than originally appears.
I’ve been listening to . . . Leon Bridges. I could listen to “River” over and over again. It’s hauntingly beautiful.
Have a wonderful weekend!
