It’s unseasonably warm today, so I opened the back bedroom door to the deck so Storm Shadow could laze in the sun and stare out the storm door and keep watch over the great outdoors. The weather forecast is calling for stupidly cold temperatures starting tomorrow, which I suspect may wreck havoc with my sinuses, but for now, it’s good to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun before the work week starts. It’s gonna be a busy week.

Not much, but it was still my double-spaced page-a-day, and that’s the goal. Movie lasted a while and I’d had a couple of drinks while watching, and when you’re reducing your calories, alcohol hits harder and faster than what you’re used to. Hopefully, what little I wrote is somewhat coherent.
Currently Reading: Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
I’ve been meaning to read this award-winning book for a very long time, and I only just started. It’s going to be a fast read, which is good, because my next few picks are going to have to focus on books that I think I may want to nominate for the Hugos.
Next up: More laundry! Probably forgoing completing the Batman marathon as the hubby wants to watch football and I want to watch the premiere of Galavant, which looks delightfully fun and ridiculous. I think I’ll have popcorn. Tomorrow the work week starts in earnest, and I have my first physical therapy session of the year. Yay?
5 thoughts on “Lazy Sundays Are The Best”
I’m curious to hear what you think of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. I read Alexie’s The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven and, in spite of having the best title ever, it was uneven and not that great.
I enjoyed it. I don’t know where The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven falls in his publication chronology, but I enjoyed this quite a bit. Pretty solid all the way through, though I will say it was also a bit weirdly optimistic, despite the fact that character goes through quite a bit of shit. Worth checking out from the library, that’s for sure!
Lazy Sundays are the best! I am currently children- and parents- free (they are in Cancun. I am freezing my butt off in Wisconsin), and it was nice to just stay in bed and snuggle with the cats, and end the evening on the couch, watching “Bones” with my eventually-to-be-ex-husband (it’s complicated; I am just grateful for antidepressants).
Then I’m grateful for you! I take it the parents have the children: vacation with the grandkids?
Good luck with the complicated situation!
Thank you, Shara! My parents and kids survived their Cancun vacation – to be honest, I wouldn’t have minded another week of being child-free, and I am pretty sure the cats concur 🙂
