So, I've been sick with the flu for the past week, and I'm a little late getting to my 3 Things on Thursday for the week of January 11. Also, I haven't done much for the past 7 days other than sleep, take my temperature, and worry about work. But don't worry, the three things making me happy(ish) this week aren't going to just be strong meds and hot broth.
I actually have made it through two books since the beginning of the year. Both are like 3 1/2 stars? Probably? But at least I've finished two! Stay tuned for some reviews:
I am also reading two books right now: one ARC that is a little slow moving (is there a thread here?) but well-written and compelling, and the other is one of my most anticipated reads of the year. Have you read either of these yet?
2. Natalie Portman
I crawled out of my fever dreams finally on Sunday, just in time to catch the Golden Globes and watch some of my favorites win some awards (Ladybird, The Fantastic Mrs. Maisel, Big Little Lies). And while there's a lot to talk about regarding the awards shows, I wanna skip ahead to the part where I was absolutely living for Natalie Portman throwing shade at the entire Foreign Hollywood Press.
3. Long Weekends
Memphis is facing some cold temperatures tonight along with and rain that is certain (??) to turn into a wintry mix...either way, we have a work-from-home situation going on Friday, and then Monday is a holiday. I'm looking forward to a weekend to get my house and life back in order after so many days down with the flu. I know it isn't super exciting, but I'm looking forward to having some clean sheets!
What are some things you're loving this week?
