It’s end of the year, tidy up, get rid of stuff time here. I wave my magic wand, and all is in order. Ha.
I did make a major start with my computer yesterday transferring photographs from one folder to another. This morning, after an attempt to get in the pool, I’ll move a few more things around. I start each year with a new folder for writing class, journaling, and photos.
Today G is home sick from work to go to the Auto Show. They know. Work is light right now, and he asked if they would rather pay him to sit at home or go to the auto show and learn things. He’s going with his sponsor and friend Jay….breakfast and the show. Should be fun for both of them.
Me…I have split pea soup brewing. He doesn’t like it but I love the stuff…(so I have a separate dinner made for him). With that ham bone in the house, I consider it a sin not to make split pea soup. I’ll do it on the stove as yesterdays experiment with the crock pot smelled good and tasted good but was sauceless. I’ll turn the soup off briefly to stop by the Discover Shop and set up a book display. My goal yesterday was to clear the shelves for the books coming in Friday and to mark down the three month old unsold books. I never got my part of the store looking good. When I get home, I can go back to simmering soup.
Reading. I just finished one about an Irish doctor. Charming. I’m also reading Foote’s three volumes on the Civil War. I’m in the first book. There’s a giant basket in the living room filled with books I mean to read. Not all are going to be worthwhile. I actually skimmed a famous author’s opus the other day just so I could find out the ending and get it back to the store. I no longer feel I have to read a book if it doesn’t sit well.
Bravo to me.
Now we will see how the soup comes out.
