In an effort to keep from becoming old and senile at the age of 55, Jerry and I have decided to be intentional about reading. For me at least, it’s harder than you might think. I love reading, but it is sometimes so hard to quiet myself down to be still and open a book. Last night, we were making dinner and I kept dropping things and I closed my finger in the drawer, dropped some more stuff, spilled sauce on the burner etc….I had a good day, yet felt totally frazzled. Like I was in a race to get dinner made to then, finish. We didn’t have anywhere to be, so I don’t know what the rush was.
Once we ate, I felt much better. Maybe my blood sugar was low or something. ** Sidenote, dinner was great! I made chicken in the crockpot with water, soy sauce, garlic, basil, pepper and ginger…We had fresh corn on the cob and then I made black eyed peas and brown rice with a similar sauce as the chicken (found the recipe online) It was great!**
Jerry decided to read, as he has the past couple nights, so instead of puttering around as I call it, I thought I would join him. We read for over 2 hours! It was so completely wonderful. We were just sitting in the livingroom, each reading our own thing, Krusty laying on the floor, the tv was off. The only thing missing was a crackling fire! (and in my case, a fireplace)
I really needed a quiet night, and I didn’t even know it. And, I finally knocked 3 more chapters out of a book I have been trying to read for a year! Now I am almost done. Yay! I can’t wait to finish the book and get another one. Good job baby, thanks for the motivation 🙂
