Taking Stock: March 2021

Cooking : I’m never gonna do this, way too many steps but if I were younger, working full time with a lot of time pressure I totally would. I love me some steak!

Reading: Squall by Sean Costello
The Zookeepers Wife by Diane Ackerman
The Whistler by John Grisham

Wanting: Musical Theater to come back!

Playing: Words with Friends (Always)

Deciding: It’s important to find common ground.

Wishing: I had a house to use this smart money tip.

(Patiently) Waiting: Until it’s time to start collecting the fruit of my years of work.

Loving: This Dr. Seuss story

Pondering: Serendipity

Considering: The Color Purple or Mauve

Buying: I got my stimulus so what to buy what to buy? Hmmm…think I’ll save this time around.

Watching: Survivor Blood vs. Water
Survivor: Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty
Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains
Survivor: Nicaragua
Survivor Redemption Island
Survivor: South Pacific
Survivor: One World
Survivor: Philippines
Survivor: Fans vs Favorites Caramoan
A month of Survivor…I think it’s time to take a break. It’s causing me to look at my co-workers deciding how to vote them off.

Admiring: This son’s love for his mom.

Sorting: The Art of Considering (or not) Controversial Artists

Coveting: The time and the money to enjoy Master Class.

Giggling: At this video of my (great) niece and nephew) from five years ago that I just saw.

Hearing: I listened to my first book on audio (a CD I played in my car). The Fault in our Stars was incredible. Now I am left with a few dilemmas, mostly concerning whether I include it in my number list of books I “read” this year.

Thanks to Taking Stock for the inspiration.

  1. I can only read anything longer than a blog via audible. I think you will find that reading is reading. I love audible. It’s like having a stage play in your brain and you get to pick the performers. There are a lot of people who ONLY read by audible because their eyes aren’t up to long runs of text anymore. Does that mean they don’t read?


    • I like the way you describe it. I agree that it is like having a stage play in your brain and you get to pick the performers but I am not convinced it is actually reading. When kindergardeners are read 50 books a year during “circle time” is that considered reading?
