I started the Readathon an hour late because I had stayed up quite late preparing for it. Baking cookies and muffins…
I was ready. I made my first cup of coffee and off I went.
I spent the majority of my time reading, reading, reading. I finished two books I had started, one from the library, one from my TBR pile. I started two other books as well. (I finished both of these Sunday afternoon.) I spent some time visiting other blogs and posting on Powerful Women Readers. I enjoyed a lot of cartoons. I read the Saturday Houston Chronicle from cover to cover, thoroughly catching up on news of the election and the Coronavirus. The comics were especially good. Saturday’s Chronicle features in its “Zest” section both bird-watching “news” and a gardening feature, two columns I have learned a great deal from over the years. When we first moved to Houston, we had two Houston papers and were thrown one in the morning, one in the afternoon. it is sad to witness the decline of print newspapers; we are one of two homes on our cul de sac that receive the paper daily. Most just buy the weekend edition when they’re out or watch the news on TV.
I caught up to date on my devotional book, Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Someone donated this lovely book to my LFL when they were through with it, so I have been reading January’s and October’s devotionals daily; then I will be in February and November, etc. I found myself copying many sayings down in my Quotes Notebook.
I read a total of nine hours, then followed up by dedicating all of Sunday afternoon (while My Better Half watched the Texans play) to finishing up what I’d started.
It made for a wonderful reading weekend.
