How many languages do you speak?
Regrettably, only one. Although if I truly did regret it, nothing is stopping me from learning to speak another one. For this to happen I imagine it’s best to have someone fluent in the new language with whom to converse. Because this person would be able to helpfully correct my pronunciation and grammar after laughing at it. Thankfully I don’t know anyone like that.
What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?
I am reading an e-book called “Weightless” by Kandi Steiner. It’s about eighteen year old Natalie who gets dumped by her boyfriend, decides to hit the gym, and then falls for her personal trainer. Everybody has issues. Her friends, her mother, her step dad, her ex and his nasty new girlfriend, her hot trainer and his nasty clients….and she is sorry high school is done and debating what to do next. And I just want to say “Run, Natalie, run!” The book was a Kindle daily deal. Totally worth the money.
I am watching “New Blood”, a BBC detective type series on Netflix. Season one, episode four, case two, part one. Not sure why I remember all that and even more confused as to why I feel the need to share it. Episodes one two and three were case one, parts one two and three. Maybe I’m just proud of my attention to unimportant details. I like the main characters and how they end up working together and solving the shit out of stuff.
I am listening to the rain pour down and feeling all smug that I put off starting my walk because of all those menacing dark clouds and thus didn’t get caught in the downpour.
I ate a toasted scrambled egg sandwich on dark European rye bread with ketchup on the side for brunch. Wow, I am a total detail freak today.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
There it is at the top of this post. A piece of cracked sidewalk and some scrubby spring grass. I was putting my phone back in to my pocket and somehow managed to capture this brilliant moment in time on my walk through one of the alley walk-ways between houses in my neighbourhood yesterday. I hope no one tries to steal this incredible image without my permission.
What is your favorite time of day?
Early morning. Because coffee.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for a lovely quiet weekend on my own doing pretty much nothing out of the ordinary….even though Sunday was Mothers Day and Saturday was my birthday. My daughter, son, daughter-in-law and oldest granddaughter sent me texts. THEY ALL KNOW ME SO WELL! I don’t like a lot of fuss and I love that they get that. W sent a text on Sunday night saying sorry he missed my birthday and Happy Mother’s Day and here’s what’s going on with ME….
Is it weird that I’m ok with all of this? Probably. Oh well, whatever, weird is good too, right? I love them all and I am loved and nothing else really matters after that.
Okay, the sun is out! Time to drag myself away from the IPad and onto the cracked streets and walkways and bike paths of my soaking wet world! Then I can get back to crime season episode part whatever the hell is going on case solving. Don’t ever say my priorities are screwed up. They are, but you don’t need to say it.
