Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Sticky

Blech! Oh the humidity! Hopefully you all made it through #Irene2011 without too much trouble. Last I heard the Bostonians were calling it a super-tropical storm. We're not supposed to get too much here, just rain and wind. There are some advantages to sticking so far out into the ocean like we do. But, lordy, it is sticky! I didn't bother turning on the flatiron this morning. There is no point. I have to live with Robert Plant hair for now.

It was a long week, since my man was working away. It was just me and the kid (and dog + cats). We ate many burgers and pizzas. I also watched all the chick-flicks I've been missing: Jane Eyre which I liked, and Sex in the City II which I made me wonder if it was necessary after SitC I. I mean, weren't we all caught up the first time?

Anyway, there were no new books delivered this week, which isn't a bad thing. I keep having the same panicky feeling whenever I stand in front of my bookshelves. "Where do I even start? What do I want to read? Frig it, I'm going to the library." It's a reaction that doesn't make any sense but I do it every time. I think, "Well, I can't read that one until, I read that one and I don't feel like reading that one. This one is for when ____, so I can't read it now. I should read the one from my mom, no for review, no for a challenge." And then I give up. Is it just me?

I actually did read some books this week though. I finished The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson (so good), Rules of Civility by Amor Towles (audio- also good), and Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons (funny!). So it was a good reading week.

  1. I'm glad you're safe! My problem is I want to read all of my books right now!

  2. We made it through Irene with just high winds and lots of rain.

    I have had my eye on The Lantern for awhile. I can't decide whether to read it or not. I will look forward to your review.

  3. Kathy- Ha! Yes, that too.

    Senora- You should! It was really good.

  4. I totally do that with books on my TBR shelf! It's horrible. I need to start numbering them and using or something. Glad you made it through the storm okay! And also glad you liked Rules of Civility; I was surprised by how much I liked it!
