I’ve kind of absent still, haven’t I?
It’s because I’ve either been working or watching The Tudors. I had watched a couple of episodes a few years ago and then stop and never thought about it again. The last historical drama I watched was The White Princess which is depicts the reign of Henry VII so I thought I would move on to a show that would address his crazy son, Henry the VII, the main character in The Tudors. I’m half way through season 2 and love it.
My favorite part is to be able to watch Sir Thomas More as a character. I studied him in college (in more than one course)a and absolutely loved his book Utopia, which is one of my favorite books ever. I really admire him for his beliefs and it was really exciting to watch him “come to life”. Of course I shed a tear (or 20) when his head was cut off because he wouldn’t give in and change is ideals for those of the king, refusing to acknowledge him as head of the church of England, among other changes that were happening. I’m not spoiling anything, I hope, this is History and you probably know about it already.
I just found out he was canonized as a Saint and felt pretty stupid because how could I have missed that detail in class? Well, maybe it was an 8 a.m class?
So, I’ve obviously been back working, although I have yet to start my job number one because kids are still at home for the Summer. School starts on the 15th. Question: Why do you all keep saying “Summer is over” and thinking about fall things with about 20 days of Summer to go? For me, Fall doesn’t start until the 21st.
Anyway, I have a meeting at 7 p.m, if it doesn’t get cancelled again.
Oh, I haven’t told you a very funny (for me) part: To go to work, I’ll have to walk 2 km (about 1.24 miles) which doesn’t seem like much but it does if you’re lazy.
Talking about lazy, I’m not doing any August wrap-up or anything because I just feel like I haven’t been productive enough to share so, maybe next month?
My list of tasks for today is kind of long but I think I woke up early enough to finish it. I won’t do any laundry because it rained a lot and it looks like it’s going to rain again soon. (Yes, I dry my laundry outside, all year round).
To do list:
- Client 3 – 2 pieces of writing, 500 words each.
- Client 1 – Send report of finished task; 500 word article;
- Client 4 – Send “Table of Contents” (I’m getting paid to write an e-book)
- Client 5 – Small task and send report;
- Put away huge load of laundry;
- Change bed sheets;
- Do a bit of gardening;
That’s it for today, lovely people.
See you soon?
