Hi there. How are you. I'm good. It's been awhile. (actually michelle, it's only been 3 days.)
So I've discovered a new hobby. ready for it? reading. books. believe it. incredible.
My excuse for being a bit of a non-reader in the past has been 2-fold. One, I don't have time for it. Two, I don't know what to read.
Well guess what, there's time in the evening if you don't watch the Food Network all night long (no offense, emmy. we'll be forever changed after our vegan-cupcake-wars night).
And guess what else, this house is FILLED with books. As in books in every crease and corner. Books on tables. in shelves. in the refrigerator (just to see if jon reads this far). ficton, non-fiction, travel, encyclopedia, religion, self help, you name it, they've got it. There are no excuses for non-reading.
I started small, with a "novella" by Wallace Stegnar. I was sucked in by the fact that it was 100 or so pages.
Now I'm onto Markus Zusak's "The Book Thief." Pretty awesome stuff I tell you.
Hopefully I can continue to feed and clothe my children. And to smile at my husband. We'll see.
Here's a little more of Annie and that fabulous outside playground we continue to visit 1-2 times a day (I incorrectly wrote 1-22 at first. I almost left it. funnier that way):
I was also going to comment on how walking a dog at 7am in the awakening swampy swamp is better than doing it at 8:30 when it (meaning the swampy swamp) is fully awake. Lots of sweat.
Yeah, I'll save those comments for another riveting post. :)
