A high today of 33 (91.4F) with humidex that will be in the 40’s (100’s). So although I thought that I would be blogging up a storm after I handed in my draft, I’ve been slow off the mark. It’s much easier to lie around reading when it’s this hot. Today not even that–I’m taking kids to a mall. I’m bringing my Kobo, and while kids browse at Indigo Books, I’ll sit and read.
Speaking of reading, I’m behind (of course!) in my review posts again. I read The Enchanted April, which was enchanting light reading, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which was enjoyable light reading. I’m nearly finished Terra Incognita, which is not as literary as the first in the series, but highly enjoyable as a mystery.
Anther reason for my dearth of posts: I fell on Tuesday while ice skating. Ironic, given that it’s summer, to injure myself that way. I mysteriously tripped, finding myself going down almost in slow motion but at an awkward slant, twisting over my left shoulder. While sitting, legs sprawled in front of me, shoulder in agony, I saw my left skate lace trailing on the ice. Before I skate again, I’ll be putting in new laces and double knotting them. At first I could barely move my arm an inch forward. It’s vastly improved, i can raise my arm to within 5 inches of my ear, but I don’t have full mobility yet. Poor me, I have to spend more time lying around reading! Cry some croc tears for me, won’t you?
