I havenâ€™t posted for a while, so I thought I would write up a kind of general entry of what I have been up to. Hopefully I will have some fodder for specific posts by the weekend.
I have had the wonderful company of my mother for the past week and a half. Despite the fact that I had to work (Iâ€™m saving my vacation days for Christmas break), we have had a good time in the off-hours: shopping, watching DVDs, shopping, exercising, knitting, and shopping. We got to go to a few restaurants that are out of my reach without a car, and went to see Hero. The fuzzies were a little disconcerted about the closed home-theatre room door (where her suitcases are), but they have survived admirably, and will get their room back in a few more days.
I donâ€™t usually mention exercising on the blog, but I am so pleased with my improvement in yesterdayâ€™s gym session that I had to comment: I used the elliptical trainer for 40 minutes yesterday, for a distance of over three miles. Thatâ€™s a personal best for me, so I had to share. 🙂
Finally, my work on Project Gutenberg continues. I am now approaching the end of Sir Charles Volume 4. The White Peacock has been on the back burner for several weeks now, so I think when I finish Volume 4, I will go back to the Lawrence.
