Lazy day

Yesterday and today have been really quiet around here.  I didn't have to work or have anywhere to be and so I mostly just hung around the house.

 I always think I will do all this stuff if I had the time and when it comes right down to it, I just get lazy and don't get much done.  It is the days that I don't have much time that I fit the most into. Anyway, I made some chicken rice and beans stew with garlic bread and enjoyed some TV shows I had taped.  I finished the book I have been reading for months.  Now that I read books electronically, I have no idea how long they are.  This book was taking me forever to finish so I looked up the paperback edition and it is an 800 page book.  Since I have about 5 minutes to read everyday it was taking me awhile. Then, I get to the end of the book and it leaves me with a shocking cliffhanger ending.  So I get back on the computer and find out it is part of a trilogy and both of the other books are just as long, ugh!  I love a good story but I am the slowest reader on the planet and so I usually like shorter books to read. In the meantime, books are lining up on my electronic bookshelf waiting to be read.  I am going to need a few more of these lazy weekends if I am ever going to get to them.

Weekend memories

 I got into my art studio this weekend.  It has been a very, very long time since I spent time painting and playing just because.  It felt really good.
Friday night we stopped at a resaurant we have been to before when it was a different owner.  We keep driving by since it changed, saying we needed to try it out.  So we decided to go Friday and as we sat there we realized that 32 years ago this same week we had come here on our second date.  We even had a guitarist by our table just like this time.  It was a precious memory and were so glad we had stopped in.
