I wish I could say that this week was even just a little more exciting than last week…but it really wasn’t. But seriously…for me right now? That’s really ok.
I finished these…and they were both British chunksters!
I am not sure that I loved all of the book within a book within a book aspects of this one but it was good! But again…I was so glad when I was finished with this book! It makes me wonder why!
I am still reading this…it’s a glorious fantasy!
As soon as I finish my Callie Bates book I am choosing one of these unless I change my mind again which I hope I won’t do!
I think I have too much time to think about “stuff”. I can’t be as active yet…I am still incredibly fatigued. I can fall asleep at night sitting up at around 8 ish and then wake up wired at 9 ish. It doesn’t happen every night but when it does…I hate it. It feels as though I am starting the night all over again! Roxie gets totally excited and thinks the day is starting. I can’t even sneak off into another room because both Lucy and Roxie believe that the four of us should sleep in the same room and if I leave…they hunt for me and wake Den up!
I made bread! So easy and so good…from this book. I think I am making cinnamon bread today. Bread making is a total culinary adventure for me lately! I love this book. My loaves look just like this one only just a tad bumpier! Plus you really do not need to knead the bread! You fork it in the bowl with two forks! You never touch the bread dough! Talk about a culinary adventure!
I had a check in visit with my primary doctor yesterday and he asked me why I stopped my treadmill walk at 15 or 16 minutes. I guess I just thought that was enough for me for a while but he said…why not go to 20? Sadly I had no legitimate answer so 20 minutes is my new goal. Sigh! What hard to reach number will be next on my workout agenda? No more excuses for me to slack off…I guess. But 20 minutes…it felt so good to get to 16 and then stop.
As pretty as our neighborhood is…ponds and geese and ducks and egrets and herons and people…there is no where to walk or bike. My outside walking adventure takes me down the street and back up again. Over and over and over…and I didn’t even do that this week. I am thinking about getting a simple bike…then I could ride up the street and down again…over and over. Would that be any more fun? We do not live in a fun “hood”. All we can do is walk up and down the street…no stores…no coffee shops…no restaurants…we have to get in the car and drive everywhere. I always saw myself living in Portland or Camden, Maine or Aspen…walkable towns…I yearn for them. Sigh!
We have been kind of stuck inside because of tree trimmers…yesterday and again today…our tree trimmer is meticulous and seems to worry about all of our trees. He even places pretty branches in a neat stack for me to use…branches that are too pretty to toss.
I am out of here!
