1. Hurricane Dorian. What a nightmare! Looking at the footage of the Bahamas reminds me of when we got hit by Hurricane Andrew, because that is how it looked down here in South FL. Honestly, I hate even thinking about that time. Hurricane season is the absolute worst.
2. Books. I needed my books this past week. What with Hurricane Dorian looming large at the time, I couldn't help but reach for something to get lost in. Unfortunately, I chose the wrong book to read.
Okay, so the book sounded really good. I even liked it at first, but then it started to go nowhere real fast. So, while I did wind up finishing it, I wasn't the least surprised with what happened to the babysitter or the big reveal at the end. Definitely a "miss" for me.
Although, if I'm honest, I'm just glad I finally finished a whole book all the way through. Lately, my reading has been rather nil, so I was just happy to finally be reading. Of course, I wish it has been under happier circumstances - stress-reading because of a looming hurricane is not fun.
3. Planners. Yes, I'm still thinking of what to use for 2020. Seems everyone is excited about figuring out their planning situations that I couldn't help but get caught up in all the excitement. So, I ordered a Traveler's Company weekly planner for my financial stuff - I love that setup and it seems to work for me. I also ordered a Hobonichi cover that I really loved for my A5 notebooks, along with the Steiff edition of the A6 Hobonichi planner - I think I'll be using that for my gratitude journal next year. I really like writing down 5 things each day that I'm grateful for and this planner works perfectly for that. I'm going to use my Murakami diary for book blogging/reading/writing. And I am considering using one of my old planners with the rings for my general planner - appointments/birthdays/trips, etc. It seems like a lot of planners, but it works for me. I like to keep everything separate. Oh, and I will use a blank notebook for jotting down to-do lists. What about you? Do you use planners? What do you recommend?
Hope you are having a great week! Happy reading!!
