Health and generally keeping up with life (getting a five year old to and from school each day, getting homework done and having him home in the afternoon is doing me in) have got me pretty run down.
I’m behind with book reviews, although I still hope to get caught up again. I have Promises in Death by J. D. Robb, Dewey by Vicki Myron and Mothstorm by Philip Reeve to catch up with. I’m reading a long SF book now (Ties of Power by Julie E. Czerneda) and have an even longer one to read after that (Lear’s Daughters by Marjorie B. Kellogg) so that should at least give me some breathing time to get caught up.
I’ve done a little bit of stitching. I’ve been working on the next page of Dawn Star and since that includes her face, I got kind of obsessed about getting the face done and being sure it came out right. It is done and (IMHO) it looks just lovely. However, the exhaustion has stopped the stitching for now too, so I’ll take a break before finishing up the rest of the page.
I have about 40 minutes to go in my audiobook (The Grey King by Susan Cooper), but it’s all about the head into the book’s climax and I’ve been putting it off in the hope I’ll be a bit more “with it” soon and be able to take it in better.
So all in all, things have ground to something of a halt as I do my best to get through each day and not much else. Hopefully things will start to pick up again soon.
