Venus

I can hear the crickets...

Very quiet on LJ this week-- is everybody on Spring Break or something? We're not leaving until Thursday.

About to head to the gym today, with some of Christopher's library books (because someone has a "Hold" on them, darnit. They were due yesterday-- who knew?) I'm part way through How To Train Your Dragon and I've got How To Be A Pirate as well. And a Michael Connelly mystery if I finish both of those. Heaven knows, the good "junk magazine" selection is low these days. Kiplinger! Engineering Times! Now, how is that kind of reading a distraction from an hour on the elliptical trainer? Where are the copies of "People" and "Us"?

Cycling: Went past a usually empty paddock yesterday, and there was a horse and her galloping little foal! Very cute. I don't see as much wildlife on the near-office rides as I do out on the bike path. Collapse )

Tonight is American Idol, so maybe I'll get some writing done in the other room while Lauren watches that. Even through the closed door, though, the noise is kind of distracting! Crowd-screaming drives me nuts. Maybe I'm not cut out to be a girl, I don't know...

So, who among you has already bought Easter candy and gotten into it? I've personally fallen prey to the speckled malted-milkball eggs. :0
