Reading-wise . . . oh, dear. Unless you're sitting outdoors, it is nearly impossible to read during such amazing weather so I've been a little remiss, only sneaking some reading in at bedtime. Today, rain. But, with the husband home again, I had no play time. Darn.
Sunday evening I spent some time standing around in the kitchen, laminating bookmarks -- always ridiculously fun. And, then I finished reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. It's a smart, goofy, quirky, hilarious Young Adult book that I highly recommend (not for the pre-teens, in my humble opinion, due to language and adult situations). I absolutely adored the characters. Naturally, it was a library check-out and did nothing to help me knock down my TBR stacks. Ah, well.
Critically injured people are easy to recognize. In contrast to those with only slight injuries, they aren't moving.
Hahaha. I love it
Having trouble getting the kids to memorize that boring poetry for English recitations? My kiddo came up with a great plan. He set the words of a poem to the tune of a British drinking song. You should hear a teenager sing, "Beer, beer, beer, tiddly beer, beer, beer . . . Because I would not stop for death, death kindly stopped for meeeeee." It just makes life so much more joyful.
My cat is talking in her sleep. So funny. Which reminds me of last night's dreams. I won't boggle your mind with everything because it was one heck of a wild dream night, but the details that really stand out . . . the umbrella phone and the little transport pod that was shot off of tracks (no wings and the tracks were short) like a bullet. Man, I have fun when I sleep.
Skip this part if you don't like promotional material. Travis Thrasher, author of Christian thriller Isolation will be online to chat about his book on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m., EST, here. I haven't read this book, but have a copy coming and am looking forward to reading it. I just hope it doesn't give me nightmares; it sounds kind of scary.
Must go. The husband thinks I'm a bum, already. Happy Tuesday!
