Hello there! I missed a Sunday Bulletin last week as I worked the entire weekend and just didn’t find time to write up a post. I’ve been reading like a madwoman lately and many evenings I don’t even turn on my computer. I feel that I’m not very effective at time management because so many of my friends seem to be able to do it all – well, at least, so much more than I find time to do. I really need to work harder on balancing my obligations and my pleasures, I suppose.
My heartbreak of the week was that no one showed up for my Bleak House discussion at the library yesterday. I was so excited to discuss the first 1/3 of the novel as I really enjoyed it and knew it would foster a great discussion, but I think the weather won out. This time of the year Phoenix is just absolutely beautiful and it was sunny, warm and breezy – I don’t think anyone wanted to sit inside and talk about the foggy, dark London of Bleak House. I suppose I’ll cancel the rest of the series and try again in the winter.
Speaking of London, I’m formulating a new plan for my overseas trip. June is turning out to be an almost impossible month for me to travel because of work obligations, finances and other complications. So, I’ve decided that September will be my travel month and I’m going to go to London! As much as I would adore visiting Italy, London has always been my dream destination and my brain goes giddy just thinking about everything I want to see and do there. I’m sure you’ll hear much more from me about my plans in the coming months.
In reading news, I feel like I’ve read bunches this month, but am perplexed to see that I’ve only finished four books in March – and no classics. I think I am continuing the horrible of habit of not finishing books and flitting from novel to novel like an unsatisfied butterfly, so I really am reading a lot but have nothing to show for it. This flightiness is something I also need to work on (in addition to the poor time management thing). I don’t want to leave The Home-maker, The Leopard, and now The House in Paris, left unfinished. It would be a shame.
Have a fantastic Sunday!
