It is Finally Friday and it happens to be my day off – can’t get better than that!
Friday’s are the day when I share a bit rather than solely talk about books – although I do talk about them too.
This week seems like I’ve done nothing but work although I have to say, I only worked one extra 8 hour day. It was, however, hooked onto a 10 hour day so I ended up working 18 hours straight, getting three hours of sleep and coming back for another 8 so I was naturally exhausted this morning. I work OT next week as well – it will be nice on the paycheck but it is hard to give up my days off.
My days off are mostly spent sleeping which is making my apartment cleanliness suffer. I hope to get enough sleep that I will have the energy to thoroughly clean tomorrow. I really hate being so tired.
I have read several books this week…haven’t I? Maybe not…I seriously am so tired I can’t remember. I do know I read:
I love books that scare me or at least make me feel a bit creepy when I go out to walk the dogs at night or pull the shower curtain closed to shower.
Basically, I have always read – for as long as I can remember. The series I fell in love with when I was in my pre-teens was Trixie Beldon:
I sometimes read two of them a day. Reading was my escape and I could become so engrossed in a book that everything else faded away. You could stand next to me and call my name and I wouldn’t hear it.
Thankfully, I’ve gotten better about it but time does still get away from me when I’m reading. I expect to read on my days off, along with cleaning.
My story is also coming along well – I have my son drawing me a monster picture for the front cover of the novella when it is done. I really like the story and hope others will too. Have to come up with a new title for it – Snow Demon, Attack of the Yeti no longer captures the essence of it. I would love some ideas – don’t want to use the word “bigfoot” though so other ideas would be great!
