Is It Time Yet?

Cat by the fireplace.

Today is my last day of work until January 9th and it could not have come soon enough. I feel like this cat, hot and bothered and just over it. I find myself staring into space which actually feels pretty good. I’ve never really done that before but I seem to be doing it a lot lately.

We don’t have any big holiday plans as a family besides the normal stuff but I am getting my reading stack together for the big end of the year push. SO many books that I want to get to. Why do I do this to myself? I guess because it’s kind of fun to put a stack together. It’s what we do, right? Plus, our yearly book club selection meeting always sneaks up on me so I’ve been putting ideas away for that too.

Just a few that recently came in:

Book Stack

Today it’s supposed to rain buckets. In reality we are expecting 2 inches but with the burn areas, 2 inches can cause loads of damage. We need the rain though.

Anyway, that’s it from me. When I get home, I am going to make spaghetti, light a candle and watch a few of the holiday shows I’ve got on the DVR. You?

Me, Right Now

Me Right Now

Hello, all. Just thought I’d stop by to let you all know what I’m up to.

Not much.

I’ve been reading a thickish book and it’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would (Summer of Night). It’s good but it’s slowing me down and my other reading is taking a backseat because of it. There are so many books I want to get to right now.

Also, I’m adjusting to having a college aged kid. He works a ton of hours and when he is off, he goes to school so we hardly see him. I was horrified to learn that he might have to work on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving!!! Our day of PJs is in jeopardy. It’s like a very different world right now and it’s weird.

I find myself in this pensive mood lately. Quiet. Thoughtful. Pensive. Everything seems to have meaning to me. It’s a tad exhausting to be thinking all the time but I’ve been doing it. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just THAT time of year. It’s not a bad place to be in but time slips away from me and before I know it, another week has passed.

And, for whatever reason, I’ve lost all craving for meat. I seem to only want vegetables. This happened to me in my 20s and that led to a vegetarian, sometimes vegan diet for a good three years. Will it happen again? I wonder if it has to do with my iron levels being normal now.

That’s basically it. Things are good and quiet but different. How about you? What is going on with you right now?
