Little Accomplishments – March 3rd, 2017

What have you accomplished this week?

This is the second post in my weekly series, which I’m calling Little Accomplishments!

Each post will contain a short list of the things that I completed in the past seven days, things that I’ve been needing to do (for however long) and am happy that I finally did them. In the comments, all of you are invited to share what you’ve done (mainly the little things, but big things are fine, too!) over the past week.

Let’s celebrate all of life’s joys – no matter how small!

This past week, I…

  • finally read more of “Poirot and Me” and “Hamlet.” (One of my biggest goals for this year is to read all the books on my bookshelf that I have yet to read once through, lol. I’m on my way there!)
  • organized our board game cabinet. (I’ve been needing to do this one for so long! Picture proof here.)
  • got the ingredients to make new recipes for my blog. (Here’s a hint … this month’s recipe theme has a lot to do with fruit!)
  • started reading “Northanger Abbey.” (My blogging friend, Chelia, inspired me in a recent post she did to start reading books by Jane Austen again!)

Comment what YOU’VE done this week down below – last Saturday through today!

Thank you!! We have so many games it’s crazy, lol. Our PC computer does wonky stuff like that, as well – the WordPress dashboard is a complete mess! That’s why I use my mom’s laptop, as well as my phone, to write posts. haha

Me, too! You’re going to love all the recipes I’m going to share on my blog throughout March. Yes, I agree; usually, long books intimidate me, but if they’re written well (like Austen’s books are), time flies by!

Built a rabbit pen, (They kept escaping the old pen,) In the rain. But not in the lightning. 😉
Played in a piano recital with my fellow students, and didn’t freak out too much about it.
What is Poirot and me? I’m almost finished with my first Agatha Christie book, Murder on the Orient Express.

That’s so awesome that you’re reading Murder on the Orient Express! It’s her most brilliant mystery. Poirot and Me is David Suchet’s story of what it was like to play Poirot in the Poirot TV show that went on for 25 years. It’s a very interesting book. 🙂 Have you ever watched an episode of Poirot? He does an amazing job playing him!


If you like Poirot, you may also enjoy Sherlock Holmes, the 1984 TV series staring Jeremy Brett. It’s fabulous, the best adaptation of the original stories I’ve ever seen, and Jeremy Brett is a fantastic Sherlock Holmes. The Sherlock Holmes stories are my favorite detective stories. I’ve read them all and I’m reading them again.

Haha, it’s okay. So much can happen in a week! For each of these accomplishments posts, I add to the list as I complete stuff so that I won’t forget anything, or else I would get to Friday and think that I had done absolutely nothing those whole seven days. lol

That was actually the first time I’ve linked a photo like that, so I’m glad that it worked! I just uploaded a picture, clicked ‘Edit,’ copied the URL in a little box that they have on that page, then inserted it as the link on that text in my post. You can do the same thing with pictures that have already been uploaded by going to the media library, clicking the picture you want, and copying its URL from there. 🙂

I’m sure you could! I’ve thought about doing that myself, but I haven’t tried to figure it out yet lol. The resolution of the picture would have to be great so that if someone wanted to print it, it wouldn’t be blurry.
