Just got back from the dentist. Alas, those cavities they found last time haven't gone away on their own, so I'll officially be kicked out of the No Cavities Club. I'm still holding out hope for a miracle for the next month.
the chirping woke me up...
I scared away the mother when I moved the curtains, but if you look closely you can see the tiny little heads of my new tenants.
Must get out the field guide to see what species they are.
summer is a state of mind...
My summer reading lists are very informal and tend to spill well into fall and winter, and often into three years later, its members glaring at me from bookshelves and stacks on the floor. And if they're lucky enough, they'll get lugged around in my bag for several months until my shoulder hurts too much (stupid Tolstoy) or until the library starts harassing me (just one more renewal please
!). The past year has been heavy on the light reading, magazines and such, and I've been trying reconnect with my books lately. I like that hour of reading before bed that I can snatch on occasion. So here's what's haunting me from the shelf and nightstand at the moment...
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
- J K Rowling (trying to get through a full re-read of the series before the final book is released...yes I am a nerd.)
2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- J K Rowling (ditto. sigh.)
3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
- J K Rowling (July 21, here I come!)
4. Life By Design: Art & Lives of Florence Broadhurst
- Siobhan O'Brien (can't wait to get into this biography that Paul's sister gave me)
5. Son of a Witch
- Gregory Maguire (sequel to Wicked
. I will
get it back to you, Je.)
6. Anna Karenina
- Leo Tolstoy (why have I not read this book yet? my life is sadly lacking in Russian authors.)
I've finally moved things over to a new webhost and rehabed things (or started to anyway). Yes, this is due to work avoidance, but still productive, wouldn't you say? So things will be a little sparse for a while. That is, until I come upon the next stumbling block in the gallery's webstore project. Well, it's a good excuse for me to really learn php. But why, oh why, do I insist on learning everything on the fly?
back in action...
Nearly a year later...I'm noticing several things:
1. I'm so lazy! Or maybe just undisciplined...
2. That doesn't really bother me.
3. Things are pretty different.
4. Things are pretty much the same.
5. I'm in a list making mood.
6. And an eating mood. Time for lunch...
