Summer Fun

Well, not really.

It has been really hot as of late.  When it gets this hot, I have trouble thinking, moving, and being anything other than grumpy.  It is harder for me to post, because I can’t begin to string any words together.  I am more lethargic at work, even though we have air conditioning there.   It is almost better to be at work.  I can be cool there.

I have trouble with my concentration.  This really becomes a problem as I really enjoy reading but that simple pleasure is taken from me.   I stare at the page and the words seem to swim and I can’t seem to get through a paragraph.   Luckily summer is only so long and soon it will be autumn again.

I have started a book that I am enjoying called “Puccini’s Ghosts”  by Morag Joss, a Scottish author that I recently discovered and really like.  I am not very far along, but it has something to do with Turnandot, it is set in the 60’s  in a small town and there is a woman who fancies herself as an opera singer and her family and I am not sure where it is headed but the characterization is pretty good so far and it makes me want to read more.   Hopefully this weekend I will be able to read a bit more.

Chris and I are headed to NYC on Saturday to see a Catered Affair and the day should be good although it forecasts some thunder showers.    Maybe I can read on the bus ride up, if I don’t doze.

Anyway.  That is all I have for now! Stay cool!

    Yeah, the air’s been thick cuz of the mugginess. It’s driving me crazy too. Checked the news and it will only be in the high 80’s tomorrow. So just one more day of this crap. Have fun in NYC.

    I still say that you two need to move up North!

    Have fun at “A Catered Affair”. I had read that it won’t be playing that much longer…

    Hopefully it will not be hot as the blazes in NYC. I hope we don’t see too many CHUDs either!
