Hours the thirteenth through eighteenth.

And thence to bed. 

I got really wrapped up in The Trespasser. SOMEBODY HERE IS CROOKED. And my copy is trade paperback, so the pages take forEVER to read and I kept thinking I was nearly done but that's only because the part I had already read was so thick. 

I also got wrapped up in the bean dip again, in the rice pudding, and in the cookies.

Hours eleventh and twelfth!

I got into the Halloween candy, witness the evidence of my shame. 

But my sister threw a stew into the crock pot this morning so I dumped a bunch of brothy meat down my throat and now I feel amazing. 

Still at the Tana French. Something about this murder investigation AIN'T RIGHT, what're you gonna do about it, Detective Conway? 

(It's gonna be dark soon, this book had better not get too murdery.)

Hours ninth and tenth.

I keep feeling like I time-warped a little bit. It's 3pm! Jane, our gracious hostess and resident sleeper-inner has joined us downstairs, my sister is taking a break from reading to do some art, I did some yoga on the deck LIKE A HIPPIE to better equip myself for another seven or eight hours of lying still. 

Got myself some carrots and hummus, while I was on this health kick, and a flashback to this time five years ago when I sat on this very couch, resting a plate of carrots on my bellyful of Eleanor!

Sunriiiiiiiise, sunset. 

(Still eyeballs-deep in The Trespasser, don't expect that status to change for HOURS yet.)

Hours the seventh and eighth!

It's afternoon, all of a sudden! I took the smallest nap. And then had a coffee and another cinnamon bunlette with my Tana French. 

This is going to be my Rest Of The Daylight book because it's a long one. But Tana French is SO GOOD. 

Nimona had some of my 7-layer dip for lunch and she did not care for it. 

Sorry, Nims!

Hours the fifth and sixth!

Where is this day going. Ten minutes ago, the lake was all misty fog and foggy mist and now the clouds are breaking up!

I pulled out some cinnamon buns but they had to RISE and then to BAKE so I had some jalapeño chips while I was waiting. 

The cinnamon buns are tiny so I ate a FEW. 

I'm done Mare's War, moved on to a reread of Nimona and it is JUST AS GOOD AS I REMEMBERED if not better. I am being that obnoxious reading friend who laughs out loud at stuff but it is WORTH IT. 

Hours the third and fourth!

Readathons make me HONGRY, all this sitting here and using my eyeballs for stuff, but I think it's just the proximity to snax. Probably I could use a cookie, all I've had in the last two hours is some delicious grapes.

I dragged my heap of blankets from the couch to the basket chair. 

Still reading Mare's War, coming up on the end. What should I read NEXT?

Hours the first and also second!

I had the nestiest bednest going but I had brought the fourth Phoebe and Her Unicorn book upstairs for my Morning Read and IT IS ONLY LIKE A HALF-HOUR READ so I had to recreate my bednest downstairs. 

We are at a friend's cabin, which I LOVE because then you get to rummage through the mugs to find one you like the looks of. 

I've finished the unicorn business and started Mare's War. But what of snax!? You guys it is 7am, so I had a dang bagel, but with jalapeño cream cheese to keep things SPICY. 

My sister is in the kitchen, throwing some stewgredients into Old Crockery for supper, our friend Jane whose cabin this is is some sort of night bird, so she sleeps on. Back to the front!
