I am sick. Again.
It’s not often that I want to go back to January, especially since this past January was so cold and snowy, but at least I was healthy for the whole month. So far, I’ve been sick in February, March, and now April. Previous to that, I hadn’t been sick since August of 2016. I blame the weather. I haven’t been able to go out for a good walk, or open my windows to give my apartment a good airing out. Hopefully this week will change that. The weather service is predicting warmer temperatures. Finally.
*sighs* On the bright side, The Shape of Water came in for me at the library, so I’ll be curling up on the couch to watch it later today, assuming I don’t fall asleep.
Since I’ve been sick since Tuesday, I haven’t gotten as much reading done as I wanted to. I also didn’t read the books I’d planned to. I blame the cold. By the time I get to the end of the day and can read I’ve been so tired that I’m just not up for a challenge. Since I’m suddenly back in love with series, I dove back into Anne McCaffery’s Pern books, which I haven’t read since high school.
It’s been interesting. On one hand, I don’t remember a lot of the plot points and details, but there are other things that have stuck with me through the years
I only finished one book this week, and it wasn’t any of the books I planed to read last Sunday:
- Dragonflight by Anne McCaffery
I’m currently reading four books:
- The Conference of the Birds by Farid ud-Din Attar
- Foreigner by C.J. Cherryh
- Dragonsdawn by Anne McCaffery
- The White Dragon by Anne McCaffery
Thanks to my cold, it’s been a pretty quiet week here. No new podcasts, no new shows I’ve started watching.. I guess I did get through the audiobook version of Lois McMaster Bujold’s Cryoburn, and I’m pleased to report that the story is much smoother than my reading of the physical copy made me think it was (stupid constant interruptions ruining a proper reading experience…). I’ll try to review both Cryoburn and the last book in the series, Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen later this week. I’m also going to try to review Anne McCaffery’s Dragonflight this week, too.
This weeks few posts included:
A quiet week overall. I can’t wait until I get healthy again. For now, I’m off to take some more cold meds and get a nap.
Have a healthy week, everyone!
