So I took some time out to play with the dog and give him one of his favorite things: a meat filled bone, before finishing my latest book, which was not as good as the previous one I just finished: Bee Season, by Myla Goldberg. If you haven't read it, you should. It's wonderfully written and thought-provoking, two big things in my book.
The next book on my shelf is Into thin air : a personal account of the Mount Everest disaster by Jon Krakauer.
And now, I think I'm going to get ice cream before finishing my weekly house blessing and doing some decluttering. It's like exercise -- I have a hard time getting started, but I'm always glad I did it. (speaking of exercise, I should do 15 min of that today, too, as I skipped yesterday)
