I generally post on BCDC every day. I love doing it. Working on the Blogging A to Z Challenge has been a great deal of fun and I will continue with it on Monday. Not sure of my topic yet, but hasn’t that been the way throughout the Challenge?! I kind of like the “fly by the seat of your pants” approach.
I contemplated not posting today. Who would miss me for one day. I’ve got 20 things on my list of things to do today even though it’s Sunday.
I talked about the things I’ve been finding that need to be sent to other people…gotta get those ready to go out in tomorrow’s mail. Got paperwork to get ready to send out, that’s another project.
I’ve got to get some reading done. Haven’t been talking about reading much lately, but I’m still on my mission. Found a book that I’ve stuck with, finally.
It’s very interesting. I’ve had this for a few years and it just kept getting moved down in the pile. I started it and wasn’t sure what I thought. It’s translated from the French and it was a little hard to get comfortable with the rhythm of the translator’s style. I didn’t Want to stop reading it, because I had paid real money for this one. I’ve got the rhythm now and the story has really pulled me in. I have been working on projects so I haven’t been reading quite as much as I was so there needs to be some time for it today.
Speaking of books, sister Ele and I went to the local county library book sale. We got there at about 11am and we saw people carrying out boxes of books on dollies. A man that we passed had the nerve to say there wasn’t much left. He was joking of course. I do feel as though I restrained myself. I bought a total of 7 books, that’s VERY good. Three for Ralph and four for me.
The extra book on the bottom is one I got at the rummage sale last week. Yes, there’s a Barbara Kingsolver book in there. I know I didn’t like The Poisonwood Bible, and stopped reading it in the middle. But I did really like Animal Dreams and I’m hoping that Pigs in Heaven will be more like that one. We’ll see.
Can you also see from this photo that my desk needs to be the next focus of Operation Kickstart? It’s true and that’s my plan as soon as I sort out the mess I started the end of last week.
So that’s my day off post! I’m going to be busy. Then late this afternoon we’re going out to lunch for another birthday celebration…not Ralph’s this time, although, it is still April. I think this can count for his birthday too!
