One could determine my energy level by this morning's trip to the library. Rather than the back breaking stack of books I usually bring home, I arrived with one cookbook (Essentially Lilly, a Guide to Colorful Holidays by Lilly Pulitzer and Jay Mulvaney), one decorating book (Creole Thrift, Premium Southern Living Without Spending a Mint by Angele Parlange), and I renewed Victoria Bedrooms since I was too distracted to really look through it last week.
That's it ...pathetic ...they will take away my Bibliophile license if I continue down this route. It actually has more to do with the heat and humidity than anything else. Like most people with a chronic illness, the two "H"'s are not fun to deal with. I found myself looking through the hundreds (thousands?) of cookbooks available, only to sigh and tell myself I am too tired to even read about cooking right now. The Lilly Pulitzer book looked very inviting as well as colorful so I knew I wouldn't feel guilty if I just looked at pictures. :)
I am still working through a couple of other books that are not on my Summer Reading Challenge. They both require more serious reading. The first title is Nothing's Too Small to Make a Difference by Wanda Urbanska and Frank Levering. Then there is the excellent book with the title Grand Weaver by Ravi Zacharias, which I was sent to review. I hope to finish it this weekend. I plan to write more about each of these books at a later time.
It is too hot to do much else than stay inside and read once my other work is finished. I don't even want to do anything creative right now. It is the season to veg out...
