Good morning, and welcome to another Hump Day Potpourri, my special venue for the little tidbits and obsessions in my life.
Now I’m reading Amsterdam (e-book), by Ian McEwan….a book that’s been hiding on Sparky since 2011. Yes, a Mt. TBR Challenge book!
It’s a short book (193 pages), and so far, the setting is London. At some point, the characters will go to Amsterdam. Which is interesting, because last night, I watched an On Demand movie set in Amsterdam, called A Perfect Man, with Jeanne Tripplehorn and Liev Schreiber.
I rented it for two days, and I’m tempted to watch it again, just to enjoy the waterways and fascinating buildings.
It has been a restless morning, so you know what happens when I’m feeling restless…right? Yes, I moved some stuff around. In the first shot, note the big birdcage atop the bookshelf…it once held center stage on the hearth. But I had other plans for the fireplace area.
The rattan loveseat has moved from the bedroom, back to the living room…only now it is in front of the hearth. No worries. I never use the fireplace.
And the chair that once sat next to the hearth area is near the dining room, and the sofa table with some books, etc.
Now that I have given my Coca Cola dishware to my daughter, I have been alternating with some other favorites for my morning coffee and breakfast. First choice: this mug and the matching bowls and plates.
And today I chose the mug and bowl from this set, which I’ve had for quite awhile.
What do you do when you get that restless feeling? I know that rearranging furniture is not as great of an exercise activity as walking…or even using my exercise bike. But this is what I do most often.
