Happiness meme_Day two

Today, I read.
Sure, I did have to do four loads of laundry, and I did sweep the kitchen floor, and I did dust SOMETHING. Oh, and I did have to take Lauren for the second of what will probably be 360 to 365 orthodontist appointments over the next 22 to 26 months BUT in between, before and after, in and around...I read.

And what did I read? I started my bookclub book which is: 'Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise' by Ruth Reichl who was the New York Times food critic during the 1980s and '90s. A smooth and easy read with actual reviews and a few recipes included.

So, yeah. today I'm happy because I spent the day, mostly, reading a book I'm actually enjoying, while David painted part of the fence mossy green, and while not at the dentist Lauren worked on and finished her essay on 'Of Mice and Men' which amazing amazing is due tomorrow.

What a perfect day! That book sounds good. I love reading food reviews (pretty much reviews of all types, I'm weird that way) and with the recipes thrown in, it sounds like a fun book to read. Food critics remind me of Julia Roberts in My Best Friends Wedding...and the mouse movie, Ratatoille, which I can't spell but you probably know what I mean.

Arwen, who understands completely why the report was being written on Sunday--it was no doubt due on Monday

To be fair, Lauren had been working on this particular essay all thru Easter vacation, I was actually very angry at how much homework she had. She came trotting out of her room around 9pm Sunday waving it in the air, so happy to be done.

Do check out the book, this woman LOVES food, you can feel it in every description and also her anger when the food is bad..
