It’s only -26 F outside right now… brrr. I actually went outside for a minute because I really wanted to take a good picture for my picture project. I bundled up in my huge puppy parka and probably looked like a freak outside in my furry hooded parka, pink pajama pants and fuzzy black house slippers. I took several pictures but the sky is really kinda grey and clouded over. I ended up using this one… I really like the wood grain. It’s not a bad picture considering I used my iphone.
The first thing on my new years list that I’ve been really focusing on is sorting through my music. I’m going through my itunes list. My husband has the whole house networked and moved everyone’s music into one place. My last computer suddenly fried so when he set up my itunes on this one he dumped ALLLLLLLL of the music into it. Many of the files are duplicated….sometimes 3 or 4 times. Now I know that means that there are probably duplicate FILES that are taking up space but I’m not taking that on right now. I’m just trying to put some order to my music, get rid of all the crappy music I didn’t download and change all the genre’s to what I like them to be. I don’t need 500 different genres. It’s actually been fun listing to music the past several days…..except for when I’ve spaced out and not really been listening for the last hour or so and have to go back. I’ve deleted a lot already and I’ve found some damaged files. I have learned that I really detest R&B but that I just can’t delete Alicia Keys. I just wonder who downloaded that if I didn’t hmmmmm? I’ve also been going through paper stuff still. I ended up taking a huge siesta yesterday and not finishing. I need to get my table back.
I did start reading a book. One of the things on my list is to read one book that I already have every month and to then part with said book. I’m reading The Chase by Clive Cussler. A friend of mine was reading some of his books and commented in goodreads.com how great they were. I checked them out and they look really good….all of them. I have this crazy hang up that I can’t read a book out of order even if the books don’t have to be read in order like these. I also want to have every book in a series before I start. In the case of Clive Cussler he has several different series that all look good so I have been hording his books trying to complete the entire collection before I start reading. So I have this copy paper box full of his books and I still don’t have them all because I’m broke and buying them all second hand. The first book I grabbed was actually “The Wrecker”. It has a really interesting cover and I thought it was the first in that series. I grabbed it and a cup of tea and ran a hot bath. I got cozy and opened the book and read the quick synopsis on the first page. Then, right below that was this reviewer saying the previous book was really good. UGH, I got the wrong book. I tried to talk myself into reading it anyway since everyone has told me they can be read in any order but no…. I had to get up, grab my robe and find the right book. So far The Chase is looking really good.
My journal isn’t finished yet because I need my table. I have pieces and parts and really want to work on it. I’ve got a lot to do. It’s a good thing I have a whole year.
