It’s been a good little stretch here. I finished Rawhide Down by Del Quentin Wilber, which I liked even more than I thought I might.
And I ate a beautiful cupcake that a friend kindly gave me earlier in the day. A sprinkly cupcake is what a person needs around midnight if she plans to keep reading through the night.
I’ve just started Book 4: Goody Hall by Natalie Babbitt. It’s a children’s book, by the author of one of my all-time favorite books. Babbitt is one of the authors I designated for the “I Want More” reading challenge.
I continue to read in the kitchen. And the clock is ticking all super-loud. And it feels like I’m the only awake thing in the entire town.
