Things That Are Making Me Happy
I saw the Animated and Live Action Short nominations for the Oscar and although universally well-done, boy they were a depressing group of films. I remember thinking that last year and the year before. But how could they not be? Next weekend I see the short docs. Sure they will be just as sad. Finally had some sun today. Must be averaging 6/7 days cloudy. But the temps have not been bad. Of course, that is also not good news for climate change.
Trying to read Witch Elm by Tana French but it so slow going. It takes her ten pages to walk a man across the room. Yes, the writing is good, very good, but please don't fall in love with your words so much. But all of her books are like this and either you go with it or you don't. I usually do.
Getting ready for Florida now. Fingers crossed for good weather and no health or terrorist scares.
And thank god for my brother who is doing my taxes. So lucky to have him. Phil always did them and I just signed my name. I lived a lot of my life like that I find out now. Most of it, I am able to do now but taxes scare me off.
What about you?
