Thanks to Laurie from Meditations in Motion, I discovered a link up started by blogger Heather Gerwing. The fourth Saturday of each month, Heather invites other bloggers to share their “Four Somethings”: Something Loved, Something Said, Something Learned, Something Read. If you are a blogger, you may post your Four Somethings too!
Oops I’m a little late… as usual.
1. Something Loved.
Normally I have to narrow it down because there are so many things.
But with no races, no trips, infrequent sunny days, online teaching from home, and self distancing from family and friends… it was not that easy
So what have I loved?
I guess I would have to say – doing things that I never had time for before…..
- Taking daily walks to new places. I’m up to 18 so far!!
- Watching Netflix. I started with Un-Orthodox and just finished season 5 of:
- Cooking dinner EVERY night
- Some knitting
- ZOOM – I have been chatting with my friends even more often than before
What have you been loving during this pandemic?
2. Something Said.
One of friends posted this on my FB page:
I award you the DC medal for tenacity.
I knew what it meant but I wasn’t sure whether it was a compliment so I looked it up:
Tenacious is a mostly positive term. If someone calls you tenacious you’re probably the kind of person who never gives up and never stops trying – someone who does whatever is required to accomplish a goal. You may also be very stubborn.
Yup, I guess that IS me. I am a TAURUS!!
What adjective would your friends use to describe YOU?
3. Something Learned.
I can’t run fast if I am not in a race.
I really cannot…. I am competitive and if it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter.
The last time I wore a watch was Feb 15.
Can you actually RACE “virtual” races?
4. Something Read.
I recently finished reading this book. It was chosen by one of my tennis friends for the book night of our recently cancelled vacation.
It’s basically about a nanny who is in prison awaiting trial for murder. Because she thinks that her current lawyer doesn’t believe her, she begins to write letters to another attorney, with the hope he will see she is innocent of the crime. She explains how she got the job as nanny to this wealthy family in Scotland and how everything went so horribly wrong. There is a lot of creepy stuff going on including all the technology that controls everything in the house. The ending had a few surprise, of course.
I actually didn’t love it. The story was slow and the ending felt rushed. I thought The Woman in Cabin 10 (which Ware also wrote) was better. I do enjoy mysteries so I may read another one of her books.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think? What is the most recent book that you have read? Who is your favorite mystery writer?
5. Something Ahead.
In the near future, there will be flowers. That is something I am sure of.
I will be running in a skirt (most likely not racing until fall if at all in 2020.)
Anything else is too uncertain to mention (and too negative.)
What does your immediate future look like (in a positive way)?
It’s also Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! What are your somethings? Share at least ONE.
