I’m sitting in my freezing house trying to figure out how The Boy and The Hub could hit a theme park today. It’s about to rain and it’s cold (by California standards) and for whatever reason I cannot get warm. It’s the perfect day to sit on the couch with a stack of books though, which is what I plan to do.
Someone asked me if I received any books as gifts this year. I did not, but I did buy all five of the titles shortlisted for the Indie Lit Awards, lit fiction category (pictured above). I’ve already finished two of them. The rest, I must finish by the 21st of the month so I plan to start book three right after I finish this post.
It’s a brand new year and I should feel all shiny and new but I feel sort of used and spotty. I’ve been staying up a bit too late during my weeks off and now my internal clock is sort of out of whack. Should make for an interesting Monday, if I do say so myself.
I do love a new year, though. I bought a new Moleskine pocket calendar and will be updating it for the coming year. I am a bit of a fanatic about my calendar. I’ve gone through several formats lately, trying to cut down on bulk and I am hoping this one fits me. I have my Blackberry which I also use but I like to see my schedule laid out before me, and it’s hard to do on a device.
I plan to spend the rest of the day being as lazy as possible, reading, snacking, and heating up leftover gumbo. That’s my plan. what’s yours?
