How has today found you? Well within parameters, I hope.
As you see, it’s a bit cloudy today. But not rain clouds.
We have made it past the first week of the new year. But the last one has left it’s mark.
I had the TV volume turned all the way, with the closed captioning on, one morning whilst getting ready for work. It was on the CBS morning show just by accident.
Happened to glance over to see an run of old pictures of Rita Moreno and the text was high points in her career. Of course, my immediate thought was that she had passed and was so relieved to find out she was there to chat up her new project. Realized I had post 2016 death fears and probably will for some time.
I did not know she had been with Marlon Brando for eight years. Will have to look for her autobiography at the library. She’s still a sharp wit and great sense of humor.
I came across one of those anecdotal posts on the Facebook, this one was of men relating instances they were subjected to sexist comments and behavior. It is easy to forget there is another side to that coin.
My interest in bullet journaling continues. I spent a day off working it on whilst listening to the audio book of The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. It was a good day.
I’m keeping track of the days til September 1st in it. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this year will be 19 years later, and Albus Severus Potter will be off to Hogwarts.
I’m trying to write every day. Bought a book with daily prompts in it. Had to catch up the 3rd and the 4th a day late but been good since then.
I saw the first signs of Spring. The Liberty tax service sign twirlers came out. April is not far behind.
The first episode of Sherlock was brilliant, as to be expected. I won’t be home yet when it airs tonight, so have to see if can be up at 2:30 for a repeat. Might catch Rosemary and Thyme, a mystery series from some years back on the BBC.
I’m in the mood for a scone now. Oh, I found this map that shows the distribution of how ‘scone’ is pronounced in the British Isles. I rhyme it with ‘gone’ myself.
Another work day soon to begin and I should be off. Don’t forget to have a chat with the others.
