Books and More Books

"Uh...do you ever have time to actually read those?" asked my husband. He he he he!

The weather is absolutely gorgeous today.  Yesterday's fate in the garden, has caused me to play "hookie" from it today.  Ragweed grew in one section, and as I pulled, a seed went straight into my eye.  

Aside from daily chores, I plan to purposely spend time reading through some of these books.  I have more than what's in that pile too. Ha ha ha!  We just love the library, and I have a wide assortment to read today.

I also have a stack of odd newspapers to read through.  I try to do this often, and clip ideas for writing.  National Novel Writing Month is next month, and I hope to create an ominous miscreant in this year's novel.  Although, I do try to wait until the first day to even begin a plot, create characters etc.  


I best get my chores finished, or I really won't have time to read.

Lovely weather to be on a lawn chair reading and forget all those chores. Think I will take your advise and do so.
