~I am reading three books at once right now, something I rarely do. I prefer to give just one book my undivided thoughts. Gretchen Rubin’s book is easy to read, and I am zipping right along. I was happily devouring Bill Bryson too until Simon pulled my bookmark out. I was so thrown off by having to find my place that I haven’t picked it back up yet. The Radical Homemakers book was a recommendation that I only just started yesterday. Which shall I read in bed tonight until I fall asleep?
~I also picked up the new Regina Spektor album that I have been raving about to you all about for weeks now. It was released yesterday, but I didn’t get to the store until today. I made it 5 minutes before they closed, and then went to get ice cream. The evening called for some treats.
~I am borrowing a new lens for my camera from my photographer parents, and having a lot of fun experimenting with it. I’ll get the hang of this whole manual business yet, I tell ya.
~Simon is overly emotional these days, not quite sure why. Must be just part of being two. He cries hysterically over the littlest things. This morning I asked what he wanted for breakfast. He told me he wanted cookies, and when I said “No Simon, cookies are not for breakfast.” (in a very gentle tone, mind you) he instantly burst into tears.
~Speaking of tears, he fell and hit the floor today, hard. Right on his cheekbone. Now he has a great big, purple and red bruise just in time for his 2-year physical tomorrow. I always worry when he has bruises or rashes, what the doctor will think.
~I put up a post in my new blog yesterday. Check it out if you like, and leave me a note over there.
