The Sunday Salon: Survived the first week of work this year!
Sunday, January 11, 2015
Good morning fellow readers! It's 10.40 in the morning as I type up this post. The husband and I (or rather just I) took the liberty of sleeping in this morning. I know I'll pay for it tomorrow (Mondays are always extremely sleepy days for me), but that's tomorrow's news.
For those of you who went back to work this past week, how did it ago? I had a very busy week, as only first weeks after long vacations/holidays can be. That's certainly better than a slow boring week. This week should be a lot tamer and smoother, hopefully.
Today, I would like to get some chores out of the way. I have been woefully neglecting them for awhile. I have a chunk of magazines to get rid of. The master bedroom is becoming a catch-all for things that I am too lazy to put away, so those need to be sorted. I just finished cleaning up the kitchen this morning, so that's one task done. Whoo! Later in the day, the husband and I are planning to start at our new gym, so here's fingers crossed that this time, the gym will stick. We'd much rather step outside and walk with our dog, but with the freezing temperatures we had this entire week, I feel sick as a slug and would like to get some exercise. I will have to take it a little easier however, because I may or may not have sprained my ankle yesterday. It is hurting somewhat, but it's not too bad that I cannot walk.
Friends on Netflix. Would you believe that I had never watched it before? I always need subtitles to watch anything, not because I can't understand, but because my hearing isn't the best. So after watching some of the later episodes with the husband, I decided to just go ahead and start watching it from the beginning. So far, I am loving it, and totally grateful for subtitles and Netflix.
I didn't get much reading done this week. I am in that phase where I am trying to decide what to read next without really deciding. Last night, I came across a news article about the TV version of The Book of Negroes, and decided instantly that I want to read that book. Luckily, my best friends had given me the US version of the book, Someone Knows my Name, as a birthday present some years back, so I am hoping to settle down with that book sometime today. Oh, I love it when I want to read the most random of books, and happen to have that book with me too.
How is your Sunday going?
