There was such a great show with its unusual storyline, great cast and great music. I can’t believe that it’s going. There is a #savezoeysplaylist movement going on Twitter, according to the above linked article. I actually used my Twitter account to help the movement out. I sure hope it works!
“Instead of feeling that you’ve blown the day and thinking, “I’ll get back on track tomorrow,” try thinking of each day as a set of four quarters: morning, midday, afternoon, evening. If you blow one quarter, you get back on track for the next quarter. Fail small, not big.” – Gretchen Ruben
I loved this quote. Take every moment as you get it. If you failed one moment, take the next to shake yourself off and start again.
You are not perfect. No one is. Aim for excellence, not perfection.
I will own it. I am 15 books behind on my annual challenge.
The books that I have been reading for school require more attention than I give books that I read for pleasure.
I may be behind on my challenge, but I am not behind on schoolwork. I have time to catch up. I also have every confidence in myself that I will.
The above linked article is about the reboot of one of my favorite cartoons from the 90s. I haven’t gotten around to watching it yet, but I’d love to know what others think about it. I used to walk around singing the catchy little tunes from the show. I hope the reboot picked up where the original left off.
I’m reading some older books, because of school. I haven’t run across these phrases yet, but they do look fun. Maybe we should put some back into circulation?
I recently started going to meetings for discussions about health and activity. Today’s question was “how will you add activity into your week?” I added that I plan on adding a quick walk a few times a week, since I found it only takes 10 minutes to get around the block with Molly. Less if I go alone, since I don’t stop to smell the bushes. The coach laughed and asked why I didn’t. You know, I didn’t have a good answer.

June 1 to September 6, 2021 is Summer Strides for San Francisco Public library. If a library patron who signs up for the program reads for 20 hours during the time period, the patron will receive a tote bag.
I started logging my hours on June 3. Between school and bookclub books, I had already read 8 hours by Sunday morning. I may end up finishing the challenge this week.
There is an online logging program this year. It is called beanstack. I don’t know how many library systems use this system, but it is very easy once you get the hang of it. Don’t miss the big red button in the upper left corner. I did the first time.
I have several of the books on the list in the above linked article. It is a wonderful, inclusive list, put out by Kundiman publishing. I recommend taking a look at it. Below is a list of the books mentioned in the article.
