2:39 PM - Two down and where's the food replicator when you need it?

I'm not actually counting hours or minutes of reading, eating, goofing off playing Mafia Wars (blush), etc., but the last few hours were definitely rougher than the first few because I went all ADD and did a lot of jumping up and down to do other things, got diverted by crazed cats and stopped briefly to eat some salmon with capers that my lovely husband cooked for me.

When I finally resumed reading, the kitten marched right in and hopped back onto the bed. Fiona really wanted a playmate but finally ended up curled up near a sunny window on Kiddo's bed after nobody cooperated. We had some interesting moments during which Izzy played "feet attack" and chewed on the blanket but then, wham, she ran out of gas and fell asleep. Apart from squirrels scampering across the roof and a bird climbing on the window screen, it's been pretty darned quiet around here - very conducive to reading (or napping, but fortunately I haven't felt sleepy since the salmon).

I've just finally finished my second book, Dewey's Nine Lives -- a very fun read about cats who have made a difference in the lives of their humans. What's next? Umm, a little scrounging in the kitchen? Why does reading all day make a girl so hungry? After I dig up a snack, I'll start in on whatever grabs me. I think probably Simon's book, Why Our Decisions Don't Matter. I've been dragging out the reading of that one because I love it so much, but I still have Why We Need Love waiting, so it'll be good to move on.

This is so much more fun than housework or cleaning a garage. ;)

  4. Maree,

    So true. They've been just one of many distractions, this past couple of hours. Apparently, I jump ship for a while at Hour 8. LOL We're having fun, though!

  5. Haha! My reading time always seems to be a bit ADD. :)

    Good luck with the rest of your reading!

  6. Let books be your dining table,
    And you shall be full of delights
    Let them be your mattress
    And you shall sleep restful nights.

  7. Alyce,

    Yes, mine too. It becomes a little more obvious when one is trying to read continuously for many hours. Thanks!

    Cass,

    You are also an excellent cheerleader. :)
