I have started and deleted I dont know HOW MANY posts and thought I’d best just put anything ‘out here’. But nothing has seemed interesting or blog-worthy. I have been visiting you all and lurking (by ‘you’ I mean all of you who might be wondering what’s happened to me and why I haven’t posted here awhile. You know who you are, right?!)
Allow me to give you a sample of various thoughts streaming across my consciousness:
It’s raining here today.
I am addicted to the TV show Bones. Anyone see it last night?!
I read 300 pages for last weekend’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon. It may not seem like much but it probably represents about 6 hours of reading time. So, what was I doing the other 18 hours of the ‘Thon!? I slept about an hour and half (it was a NAP!) and I went to yoga class for 2 hours. Of course, there are some activities that are difficult to do while reading and I did some of those. and the rest of it, I was blogging! Reading posts of other readers, participating in mini-challenges to keep us all excited about the Read-A-Thon, and commenting. COMMMENTING COMMENTING COMMENTING and all the clicks and links and reading posts to comment on. That’s what took most of my remaining 14 hours: cheering on the approximately 150 other participants! It was fun.
I’m reading The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett; I’m about half way through the 972 pages. After I finish, I will continue to read Oliver Sacks’ The Man Who Thought His Wife Was a Hat. And then I hope to start In the Woods by Tara French.

I’ve made a few pies lately: Chocolate Pecan, Orange Meringue, Chocolate Cream, etc. I’ll be baking a Bourbon Apple tomorrow.
Oscar is the most apathetic therapy dog in the universe. But he’s loved and beloved so I keep dragging him along on my volunteer visits. It’s not that he is unfriendly; more like obstinately apathetic in a cooperative kind of way.
I haven’t traveled anywhere lately but I have a trip scheduled to Phoenix in May.
I’m having lunch this Friday with my friend Teeni – looking forward to that! Maybe we’ll take a photo. We’ll definitely be talking about Joan!
When I logged into this blog today, I noticed that a few days ago, one of my posts had 133 hits. WOW! It was one of my Duffy posts… I’ve been averaging about 20 hits a day here, in case you want to compare stats…
It’s really strange how I have set up such different worlds between my blogs. Almost like having two different residences – my summer home versus my vacation home? Totally different neighborhoods, weather, architectural styles… It’s just odd, in a way.
A huge happy hip THANK YOU to JavaQueen for granting me some linky-love and giving me an award! The one called Let’s Be Friends!! yes, let’s!
By the way, does one’s avatar ‘go away’ with disuse? I’ve been leaving comments under this ID but my pretty little kite isn’t showing up…
Well, just bookmark this post for when you need to get some sleep. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz. But, it’s SOMETHING!
