This & That

I’ve been doing a bit of everything this week it seems and I’m looking forward to the weekend. Not sure what we’ll be up to but maybe going to check out a new restaurant and/or coffee shop. Or maybe we’ll just stay in and binge watch The Bridge, season 4. As we were in Malmo last summer I keep waiting to catch a glimpse of a place I might recognize. Haha..

One of the things that I started this week was my preparation for my HR Certification. I’ve been practicing HR for a long time and now that I have some time on my hands as I’m between jobs, I figure it would be a good time to finally do this and have that certification on my list of accomplishments. However this means class, study groups and lots of reading. I don’t mind but that means my regular “fun” reading and other hobbies will undoubtedly be affected. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to be a bit more crafty with my time management.

Speaking of crafty, I finally finished several Nancy Drew postcard journals I had been working on. Yay. I also have two new journals which will be one-of-a-kind mixed media/junk journals but still need to take pictures of those. See, what I mean about too much stuff going on? It’s all good stuff though so no complaints.

With regards to books, I finished such a beautiful book today. This Bright Hour by Nina Riggs which was recommended by Les. It’s a memoir about living life in the moment and vividly when given a terminal diagnosis. It was so moving and I don’t even know what else to say right now other than please read it. If I can put more thoughts together on this one I’ll try but it was one of those books that was a bit hard to close the last page on and move from it to another.

Also, I know I had said I was going to do The Portrait of a Lady read along hosted by Dolce Bellezza but I need to be realistic and set that idea aside. Another thing I want to do is return all library books, save my Geraldine Brooks collected poems copy as I’m still reading it. My stacks, real and kindle, are out of control and I need to focus on my books a bit more so it’s time for a bit of a library ban.

Alright I think that’s a bit about what’s going on over here at Casa Bookgirl. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and would love to hear what you are up to!
