Okay, for some of you younger folks, you might need translation: “Saturday in the Park” recorded by Chicago in the early 70s…..you know, “it might have been the 4th of July?”
By the time you read this post, I’ll be in all-day writing mode to increase my NaNoWriMo word count and get closer to finishing my new suspense novel.
But NaNoWriMo and word count are overdone topics these days, so I’ll tell you what I did yesterday intead.
First I went to physical therapy which is pre-hab for my knee.
Then my husband and I went shopping for a recumbent exercise bike because I know I’ll keep slacking off if I have to go out to the gym in the winter time. The one we bought will be delivered next Thursday, and then I will be all out of excuses. I hate it when I run out of excuses.
I also got caught up on emails.
I looked up a recipe for grog.
I sent information for my December 13th booksigning to the bookstore.
I went downstairs where it’s warmer and had a bit of wine and cheese.
I fixed supper.
I read a book.
Did you catch that last one?
I READ A BOOK!!!!
I’d almost forgotten what it felt like to cozy up with a warm afghan, a cup of hot chocolate, and a good book. It felt so good I might have to do it again this evening.
Then you’ll have to put up with a batch of book reviews, but maybe you won’t mind getting a couple of bookish ideas for holiday gifts.
Feel free to recommend some of your recent favorite reads in the comments.
