Someone at church Sunday told me that I had a lightness about me. And I was like, “It’s because I’m on vacation.”
Ah, vacation. The time of no alarms and no calendar events. (This is a slight exaggeration since I have a church meeting this week.) But the only things on my calendar right now besides the church meeting are meet ups with friends. Ahhhhh.
Do you know what I did last night? Watched The Great British Baking Show. And it was glorious. Do you know what I did today? Watched The Great British Baking Show and (some of) One Day at a Time and (s0me of) Big Little Lies. You know what that was? Glorious!
I also rolled out of bed when I wanted to and went to the gym when I wanted to. I also ran some errands but that’s just because I can’t go ONE DAY without going to Publix, so whatever. I just roll with it.
Probably the most exciting thing I did was pay the deposit to secure my daughter’s enrollment at her chosen school. And I did that right before writing this post.
So, you know. It was nice to just ease into everything.
So, I’m doing the Slice of Life Challenge, which means I’ve posted some things:
- Allow me to introduce myself… #sol17
- Perfectly Reasonable #sol17
- Oh, the drama (of being grounded) #sol17
- Friday Night Fun Times #sol17
- Conversations with My Daughter Vol. 1 #sol17
- I am a genius #sol17
I also finished a book:
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
2.5 stars, rounding down.
I liked this book better when I started reading it than when it ended. After the middle, this book started to drag a lot for me, and I found myself forcing myself to see it through.
The big issue is that Julia has a great voice, but after a while it got tiresome–mostly because Julia spends most of the book in her head. Also, I realize this isn’t the story Sloan set out to tell, but I would have probably liked this a lot better if Julia had actually interacted with some kids her own age so I got to see her actually being a kid instead of the mini-adult she thought she was.
And I’m currently reading these:
I am almost done with the Hidden Figures audiobook. Almost done.
And today while I was waiting for my daughter to finish up with an appointment, I started Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler. I haven’t gotten very far, but I am intrigued.
Have a great week, everyone!
