Grace In Small Things – Living The Dream Edition

Posted by in Grace In Small Things, Projects

So, I recently acquired a new friend (who I have duly nicknamed Chip) who I think will understand more than most what I mean when I talk about Living The Dream.

  • Bedrooms full of ball pit balls. Admit it, you want to do it too, right?
  • Days with nothing to do except watch films and take photos
  • Holidays with a high ratio of adventure vs relaxation
  • Adopting a fucking hammerhead shark
  • Sneaking baby pandas out of the zoo
  • If only.

    Grace in Small Things, The Weekend Edition.

  • finding a spare passport photo, so I don’t have to pay for new ones
  • losing at chess, but not as badly as before :)
  • cheesecake for breakfast
  • forgotten broken jewellery, suddenly fixed
  • Scarlett Johanson*
  • *if you’ve seen Iron Man 2 then you know what I’m talking about, right?

    Books! April Update

    Posted by in Books, Projects

    After being on target last month, I kind of lost my way this month and managed to get myself stuck on a book I wasn’t really enjoying and couldn’t seem to get through, not once but twice. I still managed to read another 4 books tho, which brings my total to date up to 21.

    Read This Month: (see the full list here)

    18. All Tomorrows Parties – William Gibson

    19. The C Word – Lisa Lynch

    20. How The Dead Live – Derek Raymond

    21. The Diving Bell & The Butterfly – Jean-Dominique Bauby

    Redux: 2010 – Compliment Someone Different Every Day For A Month

    Posted by in A Little Conversation, Projects

    I did this a couple of years ago and remember really enjoying it. I’ve had conversations recently with friends about accepting and giving compliments – people struggle with both, and I get that. I can’t always make people take them, but at least I can give them, right?

    101 in 1001 – April Update

    Posted by in 101 in 1001, Projects

    This month was a pretty slow one in the 101/1001 stakes. I guess with a big project, you can’t work on everything all the time.

    I am going to count 21. Send birthday cards to my closest friends as done, because altho their birthdays haven’t all come up yet, I haven’t gotten into this habit well enough to make it stick.

    47. Take better care of my teeth is in progress. Floss! Who knew it was so important.

    85. Go running – I’ve picked this up again this week (along with some other bits and pieces like stepping and spinning), so we’ll see how it goes. It’s hard, but satisfying so hopefully I can keep it up.

    Some of the bits and pieces that were in progress last month are still ongoing on and going well. Next  month I’ll try and ramp it up a bit, altho we’re getting to the nitty gritty now and it’s harder to motivate myself to do the less fun things on the list, heh.
