It’s a new week and still not much to report on this end. I am almost done with a small writing project I am working on. Another 5,000 words and a thorough edit once and twice, should do it. I also want to get finished up with my new horror story. I got a bit sidetracked working on something else, but at least I am writing. I’m not complaining a bit.
So what’ new this week?
1. The kitchen is progressing. We have an empty room down to the walls. We have 3 ½ of the 7 walls torn out. We have dust and debris cleaned up for the moment. All the cabinets and counter-tops and the sink are out. This week the plan is to break up the tile flooring. Finish tearing down the other 3 ½ walls. Then I believe we are set to work on the new ceiling and the new drywall. That’s the plan anyway. Will we get it all done this week? I’ll let you know. I’m surviving the no kitchen ordeal pretty well. Plus as there is no real way to fix anything quick, like a warm toasty bagel at 9:00 p.m., I’m thinking I may loose that pesky 6-8 pounds I have been complaining about lately. So all in all we are in a good place with the kitchen this week. How long with that last?
2. Started reading The Book Thief. I’m only about 3-4 chapters in, but color me surprised, it’s being told from the point of view of…death. That’s a POV I haven’t seen before and I am really liking it. We will see what I think of the story after I get a bit further in.
3. What did everyone think of the Sochi Olympics? I didn’t get to watch it as much as I thought, but then again I don’t watch a lot of tv on a good day, however, I was not all that thrilled with the coverage. It jumped around too much. You never got to really finish a section. You’d get through to the final rounds of something and then the coverage would switch to something else. It got annoying and tiresome right away. I did get a kick out of all the accommodation tweets and posts and stories. I would not have found it as funny if I’d had to live it, but seeing it from this side of the coin, it was funny. Maybe we in the U.S.A. are more spoiled than we realized. Ha!
Have a great weekend everyone.
