Researching a new business website topic. Going back over the lessons we are taking listening to audio recordings, reading articles, filling in worksheets. (OK, I guess that last bit is some writing).
Reading actual fun things! I was in a bookstore on Monday and I actually bought a (gasp) book! Rachel Maddow’s Drift though I haven’t started reading it yet. Maybe tomorrow. I had a bit of a backlog in magazines this week. And not the “flip through ‘em” kinds.
Today after a few errands and a nice mid-day run – 5k on the dirt track at the middle school in 31 minutes thanks to an easy pace set by Duran Duran’s Greatest Hits in my ear – I had a late lunch then a cat nap and then said “Wait!

I was out there for 2 full hours (and read one magazine cover to cover). It was glorious. Input is alright.
