I have been:
Only little notes to myself but I begin attending my writing group today so I am hoping to get back into the swing of things. I am looking forward to some old structured activities in my life.
I have read two books this week. A Salty Path which I loved and will talk about more soon and Eleanor Oliphant is Fine which is a quirky tale I listened to from audible.com. I will talk about this book also. I just picked up three books from the library yesterday which I will also share very soon. In my U3A Play Reading Class we will begin Arsenic and Old Lace next Tuesday afternoon.
I haven’t listened to music in a long time. Maybe I need to. I listen to audible books every chance I get and when I wake up in the middle of the night I listen to the ABC radio programs. I hear some interesting interviews in the middle of the night along with all the other insomniacs across Australia
I am addicted to BBC First on Foxtel. If it’s not a British drama series I probably won’t see it. I shy away from the news quite often and immerse myself in the sweeping vistas of the British countryside. Shetland is one of my favourite programs at the moment. I am waiting to see if Vera has a new series that I haven’t seen too.
I look at quite a few new blog posts every morning with my coffee. I enjoy seeing what everyone is reading and doing and they inspire me to get off my big behind and look for new things to interest me.
I’m in a photography club and I am learning Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in order to complete the monthly challenges that are theme based each month. I have learned so much from the members of this club and watch a lot of You Tube videos that are instructional and so very useful.
I have been feeling quite flat since returning from our big trip and know it is a combination of having lost my mother in February and then completing such a huge, challenging African trip in March. I am home now and my brain is digesting all that has happened in the past two months. The reason I have been holing up at home and not been “out there” too much. I am starting to emerge from the shell though.
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is holding their Quiz Night in early June and I have bought tickets for a table of 8. All of the money raised will go to their wildlife hospital they have up and running now and it will be a hilarious night out. Our table is filled with close friends who are participating and it will be a great night of laughs and fun.
I am wishing I could turn on the news one day and Donald Trump wasn’t the President of the USA. I get so tired of him and hearing about him.
Being at home. It is warm and safe and it is full of love, security and animals. I love having a different animal in my lap every time I sit down though sitting in a chair with two cats and two dogs is a bit tough at times.
This post has kick started my interest again in blogging and I will return soon.
