While It's Still January
1. See More Movies
I've already taken myself off to see August : Osage County and liked it very much. Yes, a bit OTT but still I was fairly well engrossed into this disfunctional family. The time whizzed by, so that's always indicative I think.
More movies on the radar include : Philomena, American Hustle and The Book Thief.
This is just a little flaw of mine which I thought might be worth trying. For years, I've had the (bad) habit of changing times or re-scheduling appointments. I don't know why. In my defence, I always give plenty of notice - and this would apply to medical appointments, hairdresser, accountant - as opposed to friends.
I always just find an excuse to change it to a better or different time or day that suits better. Of course, I never let people down or stand them up - just shuffle things around a little! Someone else can analyse that one for me, but in the meantime, I will just resolve to do better this year.
This is probably the easiest one to follow as I'm an avid reader. However I would like to switch it up a notch and try reading different genres. I'm a great fan of our local library network and I often have reservations well into the double digits. I love reading new releases, so I'm always reading reviews and blog readers opinions too.
So I thought I might just keep track of what I've been reading. I've just finished The Mayne Inheritance by Rosamond Siemon. This is not a new release in fact I've read it once before many years ago, but thought it would be worth re-visiting. It's a non-fictional (but some believe a fair bit of creativity was used) following the history of the Mayne family. A really good read, particularly for anyone familiar with Brisbane. Alot of the suburbs were familiar to me as I grew up in Brisbane. Murder, scandal and gossip - and major generousity.
Now I've just started Burial Rites by Hannah Kent and it looks like it will live up to expectation. It's the right time of year here to be reading this type of book and I think I will enjoy it.
PS: The photos don't have any great significance apart from the fact that I've obviously seen more sunsets than sunrises! That might be another goal.
cheers for now
