We are still waiting for our home loan approval – nothing new there! This is also why you didn’t hear from me. I can’t really calm down at the moment, I feel like I am always on edge. I hope the wait is over soon. I want to go on with life 😀
There has been some good news as well though. I started my ‘new’ second job today. It’s actually not totally new as I worked there once in Summer 2013/14 and again in 2014/15. I’m picking berries at our friends’ farm and absolutely love it! It’s so good to be back & work outside and chat with everyone. New & old helpers alike. It was a 37 degree day today, so fun to start with 😉 But since the over 40 week I did years ago, I can’t be shocked anymore! I just need to drink a lot & use tons of sunscreen.
Fortunately no fires yet!
I did manage to read a little this month so far and enjoyed it. I’m on the right track & hopefully my slump is over.
I finished Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett and almost started with the next one in line. I enjoyed it much more than I remembered! I need a swamp dragon and absolutely loved reading about them. The Watch was also super entertaining – I am already looking forward to their next novel! Maybe I just go with it and re-read Pratchetts until I’m getting tired of them.
I’m also on page 293 of 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami which means only 150 or so pages until I’m done with book 1. Still NO clue what it’s about. Maybe there’s no bigger picture. Maybe there’s just the lives of 2 individuals whose worlds somehow changed and who are somehow connected. I love the style of writing though and think it’s really easy to read. I’m also really into it because both Tengo and Aomame are intriguing and unusual characters.
Next week is going to be a super busy one, so I probably won’t be online a lot. I’ll be baking Christmas cookies at work and picking more berries. And hopefully get the ok for the property 🙂
