Happy Wednesday!!!! I had a very exciting morning. I woke up early and decided to try to drive into the city from Wisconsin before work instead of after, since the traffic would be so much easier. So, I rushed around closing windows and locking doors and putting away kayaks and walking dogs and then leaped in the car. Drove the highway route and went super super fast, and then WAS STILL LATE FOR WORK! Because my parents’ neighborhood has NO PARKING!!!! But now, finally, I am in my bedroom/office at my parents all settled.
Reading: I’m reading Wodehouse! A Wodehouse I have NEVER READ. I am very proud of my intellectualness. But I am also thinking about reading the Madeline books. My friend with a 3 year old was just discussing them with me and I realized I only know the one where she goes to the hospital. Perhaps it is time to catch up on the whole Madeline series? Learn about Nuns and France and stuff?
Watching: Miss Fisher’s Modern Mysteries. SO GOOD! I honestly like it better than the original Miss Fisher series. The original had our heroine being rich and sophisticated and knowing how to do everything and mature and cool in the 1920s. This sequel series has her long lost niece who left school at 15 and bounced around trying everything and is getting used to her inheritance and her new life and figuring things out. Also, 1960s music > 1920s music.
Thinking: I spent the past week up at the lake house and every day I did at least 15 minutes of heavy exercise in bright sunshine and I felt sooooooooooooooo much better about everything. What are the chances I can keep up that “15 minutes in bright sunshine” routine while in the city? I should at least try though, SUCH a difference!
Listening: I’m gonna make my friends watch “99 Songs” tonight!!!! I don’t know if this song could really bring about World Peace, but it is certainly pretty.
