In addition to trying to finish “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” (my least favorite of the Larsson trilogy, by far), I just got a couple of new books. One is Landmark – The Washington Post’s take on the health care battle and bill. The second is a workbook on Spanish verb conjugations. I started to think a simple review of the basics would help get my Spanish back up to speed. So far so good.
I’ve also taken the liberty of repainting a couple of walls in my apartment. It started with one accent wall, but this morning, I used the leftover paint on a second. Today’s project went a lot more smoothly than yesterday’s. I chalk it up to having had practice.
Here’s the FB update I posted after finishing the first:
The wall looks blue in the photo, but it’s actually a dark lavender.
As for stuff you could be reading online while I slack, I’d recommend Chez on Jon Stewart’s Oct 30th Rally to Restore Sanity. I know it’s tough for people to get away, but wouldn’t it be amazing if reasonable and rational saved the day?
