Good morning! Let’s gather around with our caffeinated beverages to chat about our weeks, our books, and our perspectives. Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous to see what others are sharing.
Another week has passed, and while I am still enjoying the time for reading, movie watching, etc., I am frustrated by the inability to get my hands on things I need. Supplies as simple as my Lactaid milk or tea bags. The staff said they would send someone out to shop, but that was three days ago. Meanwhile, my daughter brought over a few things. We can’t see each other, of course; no visitors allowed here!
- Amazon availability of items is not good right now. Some things can be had in a few weeks. I haven’t been able to get bottled water, or even the water purifying pitchers that are sold everywhere…until there is a supply shortage.
- I am sure that my feeling of panic is connected to the poor management of everything, from the government to the facility where I live. The meals they bring to the apartment are cold and not at all appetizing, with poor selections. When I think of how much money I pay them every month, I feel angry. It was bad enough before…and now it has gone to worse than bad.
- I am trying to lose myself in my books, and finished And They Called It Camelot, by Stephanie Marie Thornton, which I loved!
- I just finished a new episode of Little Fires Everywhere. Apparently Hulu brings a new episode every Wednesday.
- A couple of nights ago, I watched a Margaret Atwood documentary on Hulu, which I really enjoyed.
- I am loving the opportunity to continue rearranging my apartment. Here is what I have done this week: A view of the desk/computer station on the left, and bookshelves on the right.
- Another view of the shelves and the TV…
- Changes in the entry way…
- My obsessive/compulsive tendencies are out in full force, lol.
- What to read next? I am leaning toward Heaven Adjacent, by Catherine Ryan Hyde…
- And now I am whining…does that make me an “entitled bitch”? Or just a frustrated one?
How are the rest of you handling the pandemic/isolation? Any special ways of dealing with things? Hang in there, is what everyone keeps telling me. That works. Or maybe it doesn’t.
