It’s Friday. We had a long holiday weekend that started out well, but then we lost our internet on early Monday afternoon. Dryer issues. Hurt my foot. Death of Queen Elizabeth II. And other stuff I can’t remember.
But we made it! I’m posting this Friday evening instead of Friday morning because I’ve been trying to play catch up on the things I got behind on during the already short week.
This Week’s Artwork
I’m featuring another work by Charles Edward Perugini today. I shared his bio last week (Simple Living This Week No. 97). This piece is of his wife, Kate Perugini, who was also Charles Dickens’ youngest daughter.
The gorgeous details in her green dress! I’m amazed at what a gifted painter can do with a canvas, paint, and brush.
(You have probably realized by now I’m not an art critic just like I’m not a literary critic. I simply enjoy things for their beauty without analyzing them to death. I’ll analyze current events forever, but can’t be bothered with art, books, music, and movies. I simply want to enjoy them. I suppose that means I’m unsophisticated. So be it.)
This week was so wonky I’m going to write a little summary here about everything. It wasn’t terribly productive so I don’t have anything to wow you with. Actually, I rarely have anything to wow you with but definitely nothing this week.
In fact, tonight is all about just trying to get caught up from the week. I’ve got laundry going. I’ve got a pile of bills to pay and paperwork to do. Caroline’s birthday is coming up so I ordered a few gifts while she was out at an event tonight. It’s a big relief to cross that task off my to do list!
While the internet was out I did spent hours organizing my hard drive. Oh my. So many things to move around, file differently, delete, and sort. It was actually a great blessing to do all of it. I greatly reduce the amount of stuff on my hard drive and the organization of things makes much more sense. So even though it was a real inconvenience to be mostly offline during that time, I made the most of it.
I did also spend some productive time this week searching out some learning things to use with Caroline. As in keeping with what I wrote last week, variety is the spice of life when it comes to her learning. So I’m keeping things different and varied as much as possible.
So that was my week. How was yours? I hope you’ll leave a comment and share. It was sure to be more productive than mine! LOL! ♥
