Occasionally, and just for fun, some completely random things I’ve been up to:
Eating an Evol chicken fajita burrito. If you have to eat pre-made for lunch this stuff is really pretty decent. Well made and not full of junk.
Reading “The Light Between Oceans” by M.L. Stedman. The synopsis from Barnes and Noble webpage “After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
Tom, whose records as a lighthouse keeper are meticulous and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast. Against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.”
Watching “Atlantis” on BBC America. Not bad. Also mourning the mid-season finale of “The Blacklist”. It snuck up on me and now it’s on hiatus. Really love it. As usual, James Spader is wonderfully, deliciously creepy. Looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas Special.
Listening to not much of anything. Just read the NPR editors’ list of their 50 favorite records of the year and I only knew of 5 of them and only have some of the music from 2 of them and I won’t be purchasing anything by Kanye West anytime soon. I just purchased a Carolina Dew Drops single after hearing them on a local radio show on a recent Saturday (specifically WMRA’s “Acoustic Cafe”). I can’t say that much in music excites me so hearing that CDD song as well as some Amos Lee warmed me.
Baking a bread from the blog called Naturally Ella (http://naturallyella.com/). Made her bread this weekend and it is a rousing success. Here’s the exact page: http://naturallyella.com/2011/03/21/a-few-words-and-video-about-bread/. Fabulous.
Looking forward to The Hobbit!
Working from home and can’t wait to get out of the house and back to my office. Damn snow.
