Normal Weekend Errands

Bills to pay, errands to run, and writing tasks to get done.  This is what I should be doing.  Yesterday I wandered off to Nasco for some craft shopping.  I picked up one thing for a project I want to try and canvasses so I can do some painting.

Today is going to be all about business – writing and personal.  I have spreadsheets to update, marketing to do, and bills to pay.  It doesn’t help that I’ve got a headache – again.  I think it is from the change in weather but it could be anything.

I’m sitting here knocking out one task after another and thinking I should be doing more.  I know I can’t but still.  I read through a proof this morning.  Format looks good.  I just have to approve it but since it is available for preorder electronically, it has to wait until next weekend.

Ken is off cutting up a tree for my sister.  We hope to get it out of her yard today.  It came partially down in a storm last weekend and she had people take it the rest of the way down.

Since it’s pay week, I have to make a grocery list, clip coupons.  Once Ken does the grocery shopping, I’ll have to do some food prep.  My list of other things to get done is long as well.

Hopefully the headache will ease off so I can get lots of things done while Ken is off cutting up wood.  It’s easier to do some of the tasks while he isn’t around.  He’s already been up and gotten laundry started.

Last night I watched Sense and Sensibility (the long version) and Emma (with Kate Beckensal).  The Emma was a version I’ve not seen before.  It was well done.  The S&S is one of my favorites but I found myself saying oh this is the spot in the other version where Emma Thompson does this or whatever.  It amuses me.  The ironic thing is even though I just watched this version – which I like very much – I now want to go watch the over version.  I spent a couple nights watching Pride and Prejudice and wouldn’t mind watching it again – the one with Colin firth which is six hours long.

I might have to do Shakespeare next though because Vicki and I were talking about Much Ado About Nothing.  I’ll have to see how things go.  If the writing is flowing, I’ll be too busy.
