The cats are loving the warm, sunny weather. They have a lot more energy especially Lola and Edgar who chases anything that moves. Even Bob has wanted to play this week. I woke up the other morning to a tremendous racket. Bob was chasing a ball across the floor and ran into my portable oxygen canisters...as they crashed around him, he ran away, still chasing the ball right under the bed where he hid for a while! Edgar found a Badminton shuttlecock (I always call it a ’birdie’) outside and brought it inside to play with...it’s become his favorite toy. It seems out of place in this part of Brooklyn. I just don’t see Badminton as being a popular activity here but, apparently, somebody, other than Edgar, likes to play! Edgar stares at the birdie and stares and stares at it, suddenly pouncing...as it flies into the air, Edgar jumps as high as he can, his little furry body quivering and twisting in the air! Once he gets the birdie, he runs outside and plays in the grass with it for hours. I love watching him - he's so focused and absorbed in his game and enjoying it so much!
I'm thinking I might open an online used/rare bookstore. I need to bring in some money - cats eat a lot! - and I could also use a job or activity that helps me feel productive. Not working has bothered me for a long time...basically since I left my job and went on disability which was many years ago. This venture may not work out especially because of the popularity of e-readers and e-books. I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit and I figure the only way I’ll know for sure is if I try! Maybe I’ll find a way to sell e-books at some point, too. So, although I’m not 100% sure of this, I’m leaning towards it and I feel excited about the idea.
I haven’t read much this weekend, so far, and I’m not quite sure why but I'm getting that desperate feeling I get when I haven't done much reading in a day or two. So today some reading is a priority! I’m hoping to finish The Improper Life of Bezellia Grove by Susan Gregg Gilmore and read more of Oxford Messed Up by Andrea Kayne Kauffman. I have reviews of some great books coming up the end of this month and beginning of April including The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson and The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng so I have some reading to do. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can read outside while working on my tan! Lol
What are you up to today? What good books are you reading?
Enjoy your day and have a great one!
