HUMP DAY RAMBLINGS: PAST & PRESENT….

Good morning, and welcome to another Hump Day…the first one in March!

In honor of the new month, I peeked into the archives to see what I was doing a year ago.  Here’s that post:

Good morning, and welcome to my Hump Day Serendipitous Ramblings.

Except…it’s not Hump Day…not yet!

I did a makeover here, late last night while waiting to enter my link over at Bibliophile by the Sea, where I participate in Tuesday Intros.

My header (above), and the background that surrounds us, remind me of Spring.

Today is the first day since the weekend that hasn’t brought rain.  The sidewalks and my patio are dry, although the mess of leaves on the patio should draw me out there…to rake, sweep, or whatever.

But no, I’ll save that task for later.  This morning I’ve been visiting blogs, and thinking about the book I’m reading (No One Knows). And planning about the one to read next.

Should I read the older book that has been on Pippa for ages?  Or what about this one that I featured today in my Tuesday IntrosUnder the Influence, by Joyce Maynard.  I have wanted to get my hands on this one since I first heard about it.  I pre-ordered it in November!

Since it’s not raining, maybe I should go to the mall and check into some of the things I need, all that I’ve been postponing because the rain made me want to curl up here:

Tomorrow (the REAL Hump Day) I have an appointment for my annual physical, something I always dread, as I never know what the doctor will scold me about…or, I do, but I don’t want to hear it!

My granddaughter Fiona texted me about getting together tomorrow, so maybe with that to look forward to….

She has been posting on Facebook about her classes for her Medical Assistant’s certification…about blood draws, etc.  She looks a little scary here with her stethoscope and the scrubs…LOL.

So…it’s that kind of day.  Stuff to do, procrastination, and things to contemplate.  What does your Not Quite Hump Day look like?

As I ponder the actual day ahead of me, I take a page from last year’s book and ponder what to read next.  As I did back then, I look outside to see what is going on there.  No rain today!

Yesterday I went to Barnes & Noble and did not find a book…I mostly shop on Amazon.  But I did buy a Vintage decorating magazine.  I love looking at the photos.

A difference from a year ago is here in my living room, (below).  Remember, I changed out the lamps.  The one on the left, in the foreground, once lived on my rolltop desk.  The one in the background used to be in the foreground.

Also, Fiona, always trying new things (and faces) is now in a different vocational program….she hasn’t settled on what career path to take.  But she just turned twenty…so let’s give her time!

Enjoy your March…and your Hump Day.  What are your plans, thoughts, reminiscences?

    1. Thanks, Stefanie, I had an enjoyable day, from the time I blogged early morning until now, when I finished my third book (The Good Neighbor).

      Your day sounds good, too; I love lunches with friends and learning exciting news.
