Morning Meanderings…. Remember Reading?
Good morning! Wow! Look at me, posting consistently four in a row…..LOL. Working on getting my mojo back or something like that.
I am sitting here this morning and I was looking at my side bar longingly at Yes! Chef. I seriously thought I would have that book read and reviewed weeks ago. I love it, I really do but when was the last time I picked it up? Ummmm…. over last weekend while I was at the cabin. How many pages did I read then? Oh, about 3.
But – that is what life has been like as of late – the cabin weekend was full of activity and we were on the road early, and back late…. exhausted but chatty… we could talk, but I could not read. And then the Color Run with College Son, and Brad (Navy Son) home for two weeks which meant family dinners, and friends, and company….
and then Monday we adopted Mater, who is adorable…. don’t get me wrong…. but a handful like I did not imagine. I have never owned a part beagle/ part basset hound before and he is high energy. And he is barky (my word). When he plays, he barks, and in the night-time I put him in a kennel in our entry way as that is what he is used to…. he barks. AND his teeth are sharp so playing with him is not like playing with Sam or Bailey. So…. anyhoo, I have work to do with the rescue puppy.
AND we are serving with IHN this week (the homeless) so I am juggling volunteers and “opportunities” that tend to arise… AND this coming Sunday is our annual church picnic which falls quite a bit on me.
So by now, you may be seeing why I have not had time to pick up a book, or chat away with all of you on-line (which I LOVE to do!)
I do see a light (I think) at the end of the tunnel. I took Monday and Tuesday off next week to recoup. That should give me time to rest up, play with the dog and oh…. READ. Books…. how I miss you!
