Taking Stock: May 2022

Drinking : Not yet, but it is almost Sangria time!

Reading: The Scarlett Carnation by Laila Ibrahim
West With Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge
Just Women Getting By: Leaving a Legacy of Strength by Linda Swain Bethea
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neal

Playing: Words with Friends (Always)

Deciding: With proper planning this is something we can get in front of.

Wishing: There was a way to spot these people who walk into schools, and movie theaters, and night clubs, and so on, and murder strangers.
Like if they had a third eye, or something. That would be helpful.

Enjoying: The privileges of living in the US that we don’t even think about.

Wondering: I have never had a pawpaw, even though there is a town about an hour’s drive named after the fruit. I’d like to try one.

Considering: Lifting weights (not big ones, of course, but something!).

Buying: My couch was cheap when I bought it. The idea was, it was going to be five years, tops, until I was married with a new home and a new couch. Well none of that worked out, and so my couch with a life expectancy of five years, is now more than ten years old. But the thing is, few people sit on my couch these days. I rarely have company and when I do it is no more than two. But still my sofa is showing its age. I can’t afford a new one but I can afford a new throw and a couple of pillows. Voila!

Watching: Travelers on Netflix
Inventing Anna
Safe on Netflix

Cringing: How Brad Pitt let something right go so horribly wrong.

Questioning: What is the answer? It is certainly not finger pointing! Just stop it and don’t do it anymore.

Noticing: This story of McDonald’s in Russia is both interesting and sad.

Knowing: This is so heartbreakingly true, I just wish we knew how to fix it.

Sorting: The story of slavery, one family, sort of local.

Hearing: I love listening to books on CD I borrow from our county library.

Twisted Twenty Six by Janet Evanovich Read by Lorelei King
Fortune and Glory Tantalizing Twenty-Seven by Janet Evanovich Read by Lorelei King

  1. Hi dawn – your pillows and little throw look so inviting on the couch.
    And I skimmed the brad Pitt housing flop article – and that is so sad!
    I wonder if they will demolish them and start new (_and maybe keep the eight that are okay?)
