I feel like I slept all weekend long. I went to a parade - Sebastopol's (California) Apple Blossom parade - where my grandson was participating with his preschool. There's nothing like trying to get to another town in the morning in time to catch your grandson...the traffic...the parking...we were actually lucky. We found parking in store parking lot, very close to the beginning of the parade. My son drove and let us out while he looked for parking. we got down to the sidewalk just in time to see my grandson in the bed of the pick up truck,where he was kind of just looking around until he noticed me. Then he shouted out "Grandma!!!!" Very loudly. Precious, I felt so good. Then he saw his grandpa, and then his cousin, who I was holding. He shouted out our names (or titles).
We were worried that my son was going to miss him, but it turned out that he parked and walked straight to the sidewalk, then down to where we were so he was able to see his son and call out to him. We didn't stay much longer, because it was getting hot, my husband's back was bothering him quite a bit. My granddaughter wasn't sad about leaving at all - she just cared about seeing her cousin. So we left the parade kind of early and ended up coming home, where I proceeded to nap the day away.
I tried to read - slept. Ate lunch and tried to read again....slept. woke up and walked around a bit, the husband took our granddaughter home and got our grandson ready to go to a baby shower (where his cousin was going to be) and I slept some more. Woke up for dinner and then tried to read a bit more when....guess. No really - guess! I slept some more! Then I ended up going to bed at around 1130 - ended up awake - wide awake. Watched Saturday Night Live...and then slept.
Sunday was pretty much a repeat - without the parade. I read, dozed, ate, dozed, tried to read, dozed....and now it's 3 a.m. and I'm wide awake.
Of course, now that I've decided to post this, I'm feeling sleepy....
Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey - It's Monday is all about sharing what we've been reading. I'd say more, but I'm tired now. ;)
On my last Monday post, week before last, I had just finished reading The Burn Zone. I hadtwo weeks in a row of reading three books. Wow. And now I'm back to my new normal of one book a week...except that this past two weeks, I ended up reading only one book...
The one book I finished reading was a book I didn't even have on my radar for reading...
It was very hard for me to concentrate on this with the crap goin on in Boston (my youngest son has recently moved to Boston)
Things have been resolved there (as much as possible), my son and his love are safe and happy, We're all as healthy as possible and I have started reading
The Midnight Blue-light Special by Seanan McGuire.
On the Kindle, I've downloaded and started reading Payoff by Alex Hughes
Penny Dread Tales 3 - which contains a story byJ.A. Campbell. (a Brown, Ghost Hunter story) titled Brown Goes Full Steam.
I'm just going to go one book at a time (hahahaha, yeah...right!)
for a while
