What books did I read this month?
You know, I read plenty, but I can’t think of anything significant or new. Umm, I finally did get some good recommendations for commentaries on Genesis. I’ll try to talk about them when I finish them. But in general I re-read old stuff because the items I had checked out of the library just wasn’t interesting me. Even the old John Dickson Carr mystery was rather hard to plow through.
I hate not having something good to read.
What movies, television shows, performances, etc. did I watch this month?
Nothing of any significance.
What fun things did I do with my family and/or friends?
Visited old college friend on New Year’s day weekend. I visit once a year.
What gifts did I give and/or receive?
Finished up friends gift socks for Xmas, after she had had a chance to try them on in progress.
What special or unusual purchases did I make?
I started the buying for my guild. Got the two DVD’s, next a book or two. I want to do some hunting to get the best price.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
How not to be hungry on few enough calories to lose weight. On the other hand, I seem to be actually losing (fingers crossed, knock on wood, pray really hard that this keeps up).
Had a nasty allergy attack on the 24th. Fortunately it seems to be past. I’m still not quite sure what triggered it, but I will take it as a warning sign to get on to the re-caulking of my shower. I’m sure there is mold holding in there.
What were my accomplishments this month?
Finally finished a job at work (review work of others, which will resume eventually). Now I just need to start on the next one.
Also got the changeover of website for my Alumnae Chapter. That turned out to be frustrating, but I got it done fairly quickly.
What were my disappointments this month?
Not enough quiet time until late in the month. But the snow is helping with that problem.
My computer is starting to act up. It’s only 15 months old — I want it to last at least two to three years before I even contemplate buying another.
Anything else noteworthy to include?
May have found a way to do the csa type thing without the limitations of last year’s csa membership, via this. A friend is testing it out. The nicest part is delivery. The next nicest part is year-round, which balances against the local when in season. I’d probably still hit the farmer’s market, but not necessarily as often, which is good, since it is a commitment and a half.
