Rainy, cold, dreary days
Drain my brain
And leave my spirit empty.
Hmmm….I guess that’s vaguely poetic. It started out as a sentence, then I thought it sounded a bit like a poem so I wrote it that way. Hmm…Not quite a Haiku, one syllable short. Well, Haiku do not have to be exactly 17 syllables. I didn’t intend this to be a poetry lesson so let’s get back on track or should I say off track but on the off track that I intended… Help!
This entire week has truly been cold, rainy and dreary. All I want to do is drink tea and read, which in itself isn’t a bad idea, but there are life things that have to continue, like posting here at BCDC. That always helps to focus me which is why I try to do it in the morning…sort of set the tone for the day. So On to the Randomness…
I mentioned a couple of things on Tuesday that I’d like to get back to. I finished the Lisa Scottoline book I was reading.
I’ve never read her before and wasn’t sure what to expect. I enjoyed it! There were a few of those improbable plot twists that seem to work their way into every mystery thriller type of book. I did love the fact that it was set in Philadelphia and written by a Philadelphia area writer. I love hearing about places I know.
I just started reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
This was one of my Goodwill finds for 49 cents and it was just sitting in my (very large) to read pile. Then over the last few weeks, I’ve seen several book bloggers mention it as being really good, so now I’ve started it. How can you Not love a book that starts with an introduction titled “The Cemetery of Forgotten Books.” This was translated from Spanish and I was a little wary about that after my recent experience with a book translated from French. But so far this has grabbed me. I’ll keep you posted.
The second thing I want to mention is evil and nasty and wonderful and delicious all in one.
Innocent looking, isn’t it? Don’t be fooled, it is evil in a jar. The jar which I just opened Monday night is now a candidate for being used for Overnight oats in a Jar, but I don’t think it will make it to that. I am trying to train my tongue to be long enough to fit in the jar and lick it out. On top of that, I found out some scary news from my friend Kristen regarding the chunky style. It thought chunky would mean chunks of peanuts. Oh, No…it means tiny bits of cookies in it. I am in love and in hate at the same time. I know that I can not bring this into my house. I think this is becoming vaguely compulsive. I should just polish off the jar and never let it darken my door again. It may have to go the Way of All Chips. Why am I like this about certain foods? Well, I guess I cross chips, peanut butter And Biscoff off of my list of things that can come into my house. Painful, truly painful.
So that’s it for today. I am the Human Randomizer signing off. (Haven’t used That in a while!)
Happy Friday! Please bring back the Sun!!!
