I have a hard time rationing my time, when I find a good book. I’m really in trouble now, because I found a whole freakin’ series of BIG FAT BOOKS that I’m enjoying. (It’s the one type of fat that I love ~ other than ice cream, that is.) The series is called “Game of Thrones“. It’s like an earthy “Lord of the Rings”, and has five (5!) tomes of papery delight to pull me away from things I should be doing. I don’t usually go for fantasy fiction ~ I’m more of a Diane Gabaldon/Outlander Series -type person. This is the one type of food I can and do gorge myself on ~ the printed page. I’m toying with the idea of a Kindle, but books have been my constant friends for so many years, I would feel like I was betraying them by going over to the Other Side. Like many things though, once I try it, I’ll probably love it.
Been putting in my time at the gym. One hour of cardio and 15-20 minutes of weights for three straight days in a row. The impulse to get to the gym grows stronger with every day that I actually make it there. I sleep better and feel more limber & bendy. WHY do I ever let it slide? Food intake still sucks though. That’s me ~ always have to have the party in my mouth.
I mowed the lawn today ~ the first I’ve had to mow in over a month because of how hot and dry it’s been here. I rejoiced to see the Fall weeds sprouting, and a few fallen leaves too. Can Fall be too far off? Fall. My favorite season; chilly, crisp & clear. Full moons of September, October & November. The foxhounds kenneled across the fields baying. Blue jeans, cowboy boots and my favorite leather jacket. Red wine, apple pies, football, pumpkins, mums & spooks… does it get any better?
