Self discoveries are always interesting.
I am a person of 'routines' ... apparently.
When one routine 'hits the skids,' it avalanches into other routines and then I am doing pretty much nothing ... apparently.
And then when I notice that nothing is happening, despite a long to-do list, it leads to a lot more nothing getting done since the world didn't fall apart when I did nothing ... apparently.
Oh yes, I am still feeding myself (and my husband) but meals could not be called 'cooking.' Soup, sandwiches, salads, pan frying, left overs ... easy stuff. I am still knitting - three projects are in the works. Since knitting has not dropped off my radar - I know I am healthy and emotionally fine. The house gets marginally cleaned of dirt and clutter. I could probably do "clutter," but my husband couldn't because he is legally blind. He could probably do "dirt" because he is legally blind, but I couldn't because I can see. Ha!
But things like exercise and blogging and dieting - things that require a routine to build on - those routines seemed linked together some how and when one of them falls - they all fall! As a result, there are fewer blog posts, Hersey's Chocolate Bars with Almonds are a viable food group and walking to the lounge chair from the bedroom comprises almost all of my exercise ... apparently.
I have been reading my Kindle, listening to my Audible library and binging on Netflix and Amazon Prime TV shows.
My latest binge TV is The Sopranos. It is pretty good. Like The Godfather series of movies, I find myself hoping that the Soprano family (at least the wife and kids) does well and that no harm comes to them.
My latest Kindle completions are:
AWOL on the Appalachian Trail by David Miller
Wolfhunter River (Stillhouse Lake Book #3) by Rachel Caine
Both books are excellent. Check out the story summary on Amazon if you are interested.
My current Kindle read is:
Cold Waters by Debbie Herbert.
Too soon to tell if this will be good but I have passed my "80 page" mark which means I care about something in the story enough to finish.
Then my Audible library (which was over 60 titles and now is down to about 7) is currently filling my ears with the following:
Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters
This is the second in a 20 book series that can be called archaeology adventure and romantic mystery with Amelia Peabody. This is an older series of books that were hugely popular maybe 15 years or more ago and continues to have a dedicated fan base even to this day. The stories are fun and the 'clean' romance story line adds grace and enjoyment to the story. But the real star of the Audio versions is the narrator, Barbara Rosenblat. She handles all the accents, genders and ages of the characters with Oscar level performances. Years ago I read or listened to this series - and I have decided to do it again (rare for me to re-read anything.). I highly recommend this series.
But the wagon train of exercise, blogging and healthy eating have been pretty much stalled.
I am here now hoping with baby steps to get back on all those wagons again!!
