- I had a productive weekend overall. Lots of reading, writing, editing, and knitting. The only damper on the whole thing was how terrible the weather was on Saturday. With the wind blowing, it felt like 35 degrees out. That’s ridiculous for April in the south!
- Regarding reading, I finished a book on my Kindle I’ve been meaning to read for a while (it was just sitting on there for months) and now I’ve started reading a book that has been on my to-read list for almost three years. I’ve been trying to clear out my to-read list. At one point, it was over one hundred books. I think I have four on it now, though I’m sure I’ll add more.
I’m trying out a new blog theme called Dara. I’m not sure if I like it or not. Any thoughts on how good or not good it is are welcome.Update: Right after publishing this post, I noticed the Dara theme wasn’t playing nice with some Russian words I have in my sidebar. Obviously proper display of Russian characters is integral to this blog, so I guess the Dara theme won’t be happening. I’m back to using Penscratch. Even though this theme is supposed to be for writers (and I am a writer), I worry it’s too boring.
- I wish I could stay home from work tomorrow and work on some writing! You really can’t blame me for not being motivated to go to work…
- I got rid of some old papers today and it was very liberating. I didn’t realize how many random, useless old papers I have saved. I also didn’t realize how cathartic it can be to get rid of them. I highly recommend getting rid of your old useless papers if you have any. It’s a very freeing feeling.
I hope everyone has a good Monday! (Or is that an oxymoron?)
