So…here is the chicken story. Maybe I haven’t bought a whole chicken in a while. Maybe I forgot that usually I buy whole organic free range chickens at Trader Joe’s and I don’t remember what I pay for them. But I wanted to roast a chicken with sweet little carrots and onions and baby potatoes and fresh garlic surrounding it. I wanted a moist juicy yummy roasted chicken on a sheet pan. I got all of that but it cost $23.72! Yikes! When I asked Den…the actual chicken fetcher…if he wanted to pay $23.72 for one small chicken…he stammered and stuttered and cast his eyes downward and said he wasn’t sure! That’s the end of my chicken story. I am not even sure that there is enough leftover chicken for chicken sandwiches today…sigh!
I am still not finished with my yummy book…but it’s so good…and the girls…the heroines…are finally coming together to overpower the bad guys…I love that kind of story.
I literally am reading at a snail’s pace this week. It is taking me forever to read Spinning Silver…usually I zip through fantasies like this one! I am also discovering that all of a sudden I read more on the weekends…especially now that I sleep really well at night. I don’t usually wake up and read in the middle of the night the way I used to even though I sleep with my glasses and my Kindle next to me. Usually I fall asleep reading with Roxie nestled in my overhead pillows…we each sleep with four pillows but Roxie sleeps on two of mine. Lucy sleeps next to me and Den is somewhere in this mix…along with my Kindle. I am not sure I could fall asleep without my Kindle.
So…I am determined to start one of these today…and get another one done over the weekend.
Den is suddenly not sleeping well and he doesn’t do well when he sleeps poorly. We are going to try SleepyTime Tea tonight and see if that helps. I think we need SleepTime Extra!
Off to read…what do you do if you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep? Does reading help?
