Change of Plans

 I woke up this morning in a deep dark funk, a really bad one. I don't know why, nothing in particular going on one way or the other, each day is the same as the one before. Oh, wait could that be it? 

Could not bring myself to make lunch today (our main meal which I have to *gasp* COOK. ) So I ordered in - Chinese - it came late, it was lukewarm. Just more sour icing on my stale cake.

The book I was reading with lunch was just plain stupid. I can't believe I read close to 70 pages before giving it the old heave ho.

I then idly checked my husband's Barnes & Noble Nook app - OHO! He recently bought the latest Eve Dallas book (author: J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts).  "You bought the new Eve Dallas?" I splurted "and didn't tell me?" My husband, rather disingenuously replied "Oops, I guess I forgot" 

Well now that changed the whole complexion of this day from wan and greyish to a little pink cheekiness of something to look forward to.

While I type this I've got my iPad plugged in for a little extra juice so I can read as long as I want. Then - no more messing around with blogs, blogging, blog platforms or anything inter-webby. No more wallowing in  foggy funk. 

I'm off to while away the rest of the day with Eve Dallas and crew...You should all be so lucky. (Unless of course you have something wonderful going on in the real world.)

Ciao, babies!

  1. Glad you discovered he had that book! Hope you're enjoying it too! I'm in a book club and this month we're reading Untamed by Glennon Doyle. So far I can't decide how I feel about it but I do know I'm baffled by all the raving reviews I've heard about it. Unless it changes, there's nothing to rave about.

    1. I looked up that book - doesn't sound like something I would enjoy, and without knowing anything about her other books or her original website - well, I was never one for inspirational stuff - one of her best friends is Elizabeth Gilbert of "Eat, Pray..." whatever fame - and that sort of book is SO not my cup of tea.

    2. OK, I had to lookup this "Untamed" book myself. Egads... the author was described as "the patron saint of female empowerment". I'd buy that book just to burn it! If I wasn't in a funk beforehand, I'd surely be in a deep dark hole after a couple dozen pages. The whole "women need to be liberated" idea sends me to the moon without a rocketship. Good lord, now I think I'm in a bad mood!!!!!!!!!!!! *heh* ~Andrea

    3. "I'd buy that book just to burn it" OK, that cracked me up. Gotta remember that line for future use...😁

    1. I was not crazy about the plot so I just skimmed the book - usual happy ending tho (in that none of the main characters died!)
